There is a new eatery on Racine's north side, The Milk and Honey Cafe. It is located at 3751 Douglas Ave., across the street from Kortendick's hardware store.
The hours are a bit different, Milk and Honey Cafe is open Tuesday through Sunday for breakfast and lunch from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. They are currently only open for dinner on Friday evenings.
Mrs RDW and I have dined there 3 times for Friday dinners, the evening menu features the best fish fry you ever had (A half portion for $5.99 a full portion for $7.99) plus walleye, perch, gulf shrimp plus a fish and a non fish special. Mrs. RDW says to make sure and try the sweet potato fries.
I've also had a business lunch there. Their lunch menu features burgers, authentic Cuban sandwiches, salads, and some different items like a grilled mahi sandwich that the person I had lunch with absolutely raved about.
We have not had breakfast there but have looked at the menu, there were truly some intriguing selections.
The staff is exceedingly friendly and the food is superb. Everything is made fresh to order and the chef, Troy Vilalpando, endeavors to use fresh in season local ingredients wherever possible.
Word seems to be spreading, with each visit we make they seem to be a bit busier. If I had a rating system in place I'd give them the highest rating possible.
If great food, served by great people, for very fair prices sounds appetizing to you pay a visit to the Milk and Honey Cafe. If you don't want to take my word for it, check out what people at Urban Spoon are saying about it.
