The Sanctuary, as it’s called, will have coffee, breakfast tacos, ice cream, pastries, and other baked goods during the day when Park View Patio is closed. The breakfast tacos—$3.50 each—will all be made with sous-vide scrambled eggs. The three varieties will include bacon, potato, and hollandaise; corn beef hash; and fried green tomatillo. Milk Cult will provide a rotating selection of ice cream sandwiches and, eventually, scoops and pints in flavors like milk honey, salted caramel, and buttermilk lemon zest. The pastries and baked goods will come from Rare Sweets, which like Milk Cult, works out of Union Kitchen.
The Santuary will be open from 7:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Sundays through Wednesdays and until 2 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays. There will also be free Wi-Fi and eventually an indoor bike rack.
The pop-up kicks off this Sunday with free coffee, breakfast tacos, and other treats from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Milk Cult co-founder Ed Cornell expects to keep The Sanctuary going for a year at least.
The team is trying to get loans for an espresso machine, furniture, and other start-up food costs through crowdfunding site Clovest. Get more info here.
