Restaurant review: Milkweed in Mission Hill

People line up for a table at Milkweed for breakfast on weekends

A few weeks ago I met up with my friend Joe for breakfast in his neighborhood, Mission Hill. This tiny Boston neighborhood (less than a square mile) is not on a lot of people’s radar but its proximity to downtown makes it easy to get to.

In recent years, Mission Hill has seen gentrification change the landscape of the neighborhood and Milkweed which opened at the end of August in 2017 is a shining example of that gentrification (meant in the best possible context). Located in the former space of a neighborhood grocer, this bright and friendly restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.

mission hill restaurantWhile I cannot comment on their lunch or dinner menu, I think Milkweed may have the most interesting breakfast menu I’ve seen in recent memory including everything from shakshuka to lucky charm pancakes (but more on that later). As one might expect the menu prices are very affordable with breakfast plates ranging from $6 – $14 (a quick look at their dinner menu shows main plates ranging from $16 – $22).

For breakfast Joe opted for the rather decadent “lucky charm pancakes”, which cost only $8 and was served as a stack sprinkled with extra lucky charms and powdered sugar. Although the photo doesn’t show it, the lucky charms are incorporated into the pancake batter. I cannot imagine the sugar high one has if they were to eat the entire stack. Joe put a pretty good dent into the pancakes but didn’t quite finish the plate.

Milkweed cafe, Mission Hill dining, Mission Hill restaurantsI opted for something a tad healthier after our friendly waitress, Holly, explained that along with their shakshuka plate, the “Power Bowl” is a signature breakfast plate. The power bowl which is $13 is a melange of ingredients including quinoa, greens, two sunny side up eggs, roasted sweet potato and beets, avocado, candied pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, chick peas, and dressed with an avocado-lime vinaigrette. What this picture doesn’t do justice is how much food is included, but I “powered” through and ate most of it and leaving quite full.

Milkweed is owned by David Cawley and Ben Johnson and it has a beer and wine license. They are open seven days a week. Breakfast is served from 8AM – 2PM on weekends and holidays – reservations are not accepted for breakfast.
