Hey guys! So recently I visited a new takeaway cafe in Hull down Paragon Arcade and I absolutely fell in love with it. I’d been meaning to visit for a while after seeing it while I was visiting the White Rabbit Chocolatiers. The cafe is called Milchig which means ‘made with milk’ and they specialise in sweet treats such as brownies, cookies and sundaes. Seeing another independent food place like this open in Hull really excites me and I’m already looking forward to my next trip! So here are my thoughts on my first visit to Milchig!
The exterior of Milchig matches all the other independent businesses down Paragon Arcade with a dark green colour painted on the door and window frame. There is a little wooden bench situated outside, should you want to enjoy your treats from there while sitting in the aesthetic Paragon Arcade. ‘Milchig’ is written in a unique font on the window and above the door and window so it is very easy to identify the shop. The interior is pretty minimalistic, much like the exterior. There is no indoor seating but hopefully they might look at developing this over the next few years. A counter filled with cakes captures your full attention as you walk in as well as a massive board stating the prices of products. Overall, I really like the design of the shop and the fact it is not overly fancy or complicated.
When I visited the shop, they were offering several different cookie flavours, some brownie and a selection of milkshakes. The cookies and brownies were £3 and the milkshakes were £5 which I thought was fair pricing. However, from following them on Instagram, I know that sometimes they will offer other products such as soft serve ice cream, lunch options and cheesecake, to name a few. I found it really hard to choose between the cookie and brownie but in the end, the cookie just edged it for me with all the different flavours and I purchased a chocolate chip one.
I waited until I got home to eat the cookie and it was well worth the wait. It was everything you would want a cookie to be: sweet, gooey on the inside and absolutely delicious. I really savoured the taste of it and I tried to eat it as slowly as possible in order to really enjoy it. I’m already looking forward to my next visit and having one of their cookies again because they are absolutely amazing!
Thank you for reading this post! What is your favourite independent business? Let me know in the comments! There’ll be another post out soon but until then bye for now!
