There’s a new “OPEN” sign on the corner of North Charlotte and Oak Streets in the north end of town, and it’s worth stopping in for lunch to check it out.
The Milkman Lunch Company opened quietly this spring, but they are gearing up for their grand opening and are open Monday to Friday from 9am to 2pm serving a variety of fresh sandwiches and, oh yeah-the CUPCAKES are delicious!
The business started out as primarily a bakery, offering wedding and birthday cakes, along with cupcakes in assorted flavors and then owner Chris Longeway and Pastry Chef Sam Rhame decided to open a luncheonette on the sunny corner in the north end. The shop has a nostalgic vibe and with sandwiches priced at just $5, you can’t go wrong with a lunch from the Milkman.
They offer simple, but delicious fare, and they make it easy to have your sandwich your own way-the menu is actually an order form. You can build your lunch from the ground up-starting with an assortment of breads, then meat or tuna and add something expected like tomato or get a little gourmet with grilled asparagus or kalamata olive tapenade.
Stop in this week and keep an eye out for their grand opening. Longeway was also spotted this weekend at the Tri-Pac’s opening of Peter Pan, cupcakes in tow.
