What do I do if I need to order Kosher meals? { top }

First of all, you are welcome to call us and we will be happy to assist you and answer any questions you may have.

We have three kitchens-meat, vegetarian/dairy and pareve(neutral). The basic rule of ordering kosher from us is that you can only order from meat & neutral(parve), or dairy & neutral (parve). Items from the meat and dairy kitchens should not be served together at a kosher event.

On the website, you may use the "dietary sort" feature to choose items that would work for either meat or dairy. Before every item leaves a kitchen it is sealed and labeled-kosher dairy, kosher meat or kosher parve

We have 3 separate kitchens in the basement (meat, dairy and parve). The dairy kitchen prepares food for the dairy stations, the meat kitchen cooks for the meat station and the parve kitchen (without any dairy or meat products) is where sushi is prepared, and fruits and vegetables are washed. In the cafe, everything is served in disposable containers and sealed before going over the respective counter with color coded tape with the supervision symbol on it. Green tape is meat, dairy tape is blue and black tape is parve. Grab and go items have printed labels. Team members working behind the 'Signature' meat counter (white tile backround) wear striped aprons while at the two dairy stations, Market (grey tile) and Barista (black tile), servers wear solid black aprons. Paper placemats are available at the cashier for those who wish to use them. The pareve baked goods can be found sealed in baskets at the "Signature" meat station. Challah is taken on all breads baked at Milk Street Cafe. Meat is glatt. Dairy products are chalav stam. Please don't hesitate to contact us or the Rabbi with any additional questions.
