Awaken your senses at veteran-owned The Milk Road, where local art covers the walls and coffee beans roast. Order a favorite or try something different such as the Shakerado. It’s slightly sweet and served in an ice-filled Boston shaker. Don’t pass on its liège waffles, whose yeast-risen dough is studded with pearl sugar. It caramelizes during cooking, creating a sweet crunch that makes syrup unnecessary.
Consider Milk Road, a tiny, semirural spot that roasts and brews single-origin coffee beans – and serves Liège waffles made with Belgian pearl sugar and local honey. Palm-size and served in paper, they go down like exotic junk food.
This has quickly become one of my very favorite places for coffee in Jacksonville. At first I thought the combination of waffles and coffee was a bit odd, but in reality it’s pure genius. These liege waffles are so good, and so perfect with the coffee. - ★★★★★
