-- restaurant review --
What is so good at Milk Bar? Pretty much everything. I have tried all of their vegetarian sandwiches and thought all were a culinary masterpiece. My carnivorous friends say the chicken, lamb, and other meat sandwiches are to-die for. The ciabatta bread that Milk Bar uses is from La Boulangerie (see an older post below) who has the best bread in probably all of Louisiana. I can only eat half of a sandwich, which means the other half is a great snack later! Every day there is a new soup and the staff post it on Facebook so you can know ahead of time what you might want to order. If you do get the soup let me say that the tomato basil is creamy and delicious and they give you a huge piece of bread with it that you'll never be able to eat in one sitting. The salads are all perfect. I almost never order a salad when I'm out. Mostly because I think they're usually overpriced, don't have fun ingredients, and it's something I can easily make at home. I do order them all the time at Milk Bar.

My favorite items on the menu:
*The I Dream of Aubergenie (sandwich) with added mozzarella- roasted eggplant, roasted red pepper red onion, kalamata olives, feta, pesto on one side, hummus on the other, and i add mozzarella which they broil into an amazing melty mass.
*The Maple Pecan & Feta Salad- spring mix, roma tomato, kalamata olives, feta, red onion, sauteed mushrooms, maple pecans, all tossed in a citrus balsamic vinegrette.
*The Chocthunder from Downunder- a chocolate milkshake...

To top it off all orders come with Chupa-Chups. My fav flavor is the chocolate vanilla mix and one of the guys there always lets me get two :)
Milk Bar has about four-six chairs outside (2 small tables) and a bunch more inside. The area is not bit but not small, but it does fill up with lots of students and medical staff around lunch time. If you don't want to wait you can call in your order so it'll be ready when you arrive. The staff here are always really nice. A few weeks ago I went in and wanted to buy some fruit and they gave me oranges picked off of their neighbor's tree! Also, you should know that this is the only place where I can always find small bags of Zapps sour cream and onion chips. Overall, Milk Bar does everything right and would most definitely get 5 stars in my book!
