Somehow, we made an impromptu stop at Milkboy in Bryn Mawr earlier this week. It was an open mic night at the acoustic cafe location. This one being the much smaller one next to the Bryn Mawr Film Institute. It’s a tiny little place. They serve coffee and tea and some snacks. There’s wifi and reading material and even some board games. It’s not a bad place. It had some crazy art for sale on the walls.
R got a giant black and white cookie. It was alright. I don’t drink coffee, but in general, I’ve found the service and attitude at the Bryn Mawr Milkboy to be quite good. The staff is friendly and helpful and generally have a good time. The Ardmore spot is the original one and much bigger. And with that comes an attitude. The staff there seem like they can’t be bothered. Hello, you are slingin’ coffee. There’s no reason to be surly to me. I don’t know what it is, but there’s just something about the Ardmore one that rubs me the wrong way. They have live music pretty much every night at the Ardmore location. And if it weren’t for the surliness, it would be even better.
