Celebrating Africa Cool At The Milk Bar

If you’ve had the pleasure of experiencing Milk Bar in George Lea Park, then you’ll know about their cool, Afrocentric vibe and café culture, which later turns into a festive bar atmosphere.

We recently went to the branch on Keyes Avenue and were met with colourful decor, shweshwe-print chairs, African art and foliage everywhere. The atmosphere at this particular Milk Bar is busy, lively and inviting, whether you're popping in for a coffee catch-up, lunch or drinks after work with friends.

Enjoy Coffee And Foodie Faves At The Milk Bar

The Milk Bar serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as bar snacks, and the menu features African-inspired dishes like bunny chows and boerrie rolls (where else can you get these in a restaurant?), plus there's a variety of flatbreads, pies and pregos.

To quench your thirst, they have rich aromatic coffees (we highly recommend the cappuccino, it’s so good!), loose-leaf African teas and a few cold drink options like the iced lemonade and mint, very refreshing on a warm day.

So Joburgers, if you’re in the Rosebank area, pop into the Milk Bar – it’s definitely worth checking out! For more information, visit their Facebook page.
