Blissed On Blintzes

Milkyway Café

Admittedly there were some missteps at Milkyway. The mozzarella in the "Caprice" (meant, most likely, to be Caprese, since ingredients were tomatoes, basil, olive oil, and the cheese) salad might have been homemade, but it also was hard, and the tomatoes were part greenish and part mushy. The tomatoes in a "bruchetta" (bruschetta, I assume) appetizer were unripe, and vinegar overwhelmed everything, including the soggy toasted baguette slices -- which should have been either much more toasted, or denser bread from the get-go. Onion rings were homemade but they weren't whole rings of deep-fried breaded onion; instead they were those circular rings of onion-flavor fritter batter. An omelet ordered at a later brunch visit was large and puffy but dry as dust, despite an overly moist and fairly flavorless mushroom, onion, and cheese filling. And the "fresh vegetables" served with numerous menu items turned out to be shredded iceberg lettuce, sliced tomato, and a little raw onion, with no salad dressing.

For the most part, though, Milkyway is just what my neighborhood needs: a casual California-style hangout with big booths, where one can read the Sunday paper while eating a great brunch -- which happens to be kosher.
