The Dendy Café Milkbar in Newtown is right next to the Dendy Cinema, earning its name as a result. It offers a chalkboard menu and relaxed environment with corner booths where creatives meet to discuss up and coming projects. The space is actually a little dark too, evoking the feeling of being in a cinema or even a library. The menu is healthy, full of fresh salads with smashed avo, sourdough and grain breads as well as muesli with granola and cheese and fruit platters. The Dendy Milkbar is also famous for its old-fashioned desserts including bread and butter pudding and sticky date too. Each dessert is served with a lashing of cream or ice cream, in true old-school style.
