Milk & Honey Flowing From Sister Cities Park
If you walk over to check out the remarkable art collection at the Barnes Foundation, you may pass by the city’s newest park, Sister Cities Park. Located right on Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the park is technically part of Logan Square but is a distinct section with a fountain spout plaza (already a favorite for young kids), boat pond (for rental model wooden boats) and discovery garden. The one building in the park is home to Milk & Honey, an outpost of the original market location in West Philly. On a hot day, you can’t help but stop in for the air conditioning and to get a beverage or bite to eat.
Milk & Honey is a small café, featuring about 20 seats inside and plenty more outside, where you can sit and check out the different aspects of the park. Most of the food and drink options are either on the main counter or on the refrigerated shelf. It doesn’t have the full sandwich selection of the West Philly location, though there are a couple of solid hoagie and panini choices.
I ordered up the signature sandwich, the Italian Market Hoagie ($8.50), and had it grilled. Milk & Honey’s version of an Italian features prosciutto di Parma, Genoa salami, ham, provolone and arugula. The meat and bread were tasty, particularly after being heated. You also do not get cheated on greens, as there was a significant portion of arugula (which is a good thing). Overall, it was a solid sandwich.
