They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So why don’t “they” make breakfast more convenient and portable? Well, we don’t know what “they’re” up to, but here at Milk Street Café, we’ve taken the liberty of preparing breakfast boxes for our customers.
What is a breakfast box? It includes some of your favorite breakfast foods—whether that’s a bagel, a bagel with cream cheese, Avocado toast, or a morning pastry—and sealed it into single-serving packaging. That means you can have the “continental” experience on the go. No eating into your time with a long sit-down experience.
Think of it as doing “meal prep”—but without having to do the prep yourself. We handle all of that for you by giving you the full bistro experience in a box. You don’t have to “life-hack” your way to better food. There’s no “DIY” here. Just a box full of good food, breakfast goodies, readily available for a quick pick up.
Want to know what you’ll get? Here’s what you’ll find in our breakfast box options:
The “Continental” breakfast box includes a lot. You’ll have a choice of a full-size morning pastry, a fresh bagel served with cream cheese, a fresh fruit cup, and an orange juice. (Keep in mind that for any of these breakfast boxes, you can deduct the orange juice for $2 off).
The “Boston Strong” option means building your own avocado toast. We offer house-made wheat toast, which can be served with sides of cream cheese, avocado mash, or a sliced hard boiled egg. Think of it as a “deluxe” version of the classic avocado toast. But it also comes with a side of an individual parfait, and your option of an orange juice.
Charles River Run
Want the great experience of a bagel, but are sensitive to gluten? We offer a gluten free option in the form of the Charles River Run breakfast box. This includes a gluten free bagel served with cream cheese, an individual yogurt, and a cup of berries and grapes. This makes a great alternative to a gluten-heavy breakfast like waffles and English muffins and breakfast sandwiches, but it’s just as delicious.
Since we’re in the Boston area, you can even have these delivered to you if you live in Boston, Cambridge, Newton, or Brookline. Just call and ask!
These breakfast boxes can be individually sealed for your convenience. With just a quick pick up, you can order online or call ahead and go about your day.
But what if you want something else with your breakfast? We would recommend you looking through our full online menu to get a sense of the other breakfast specialties we have on offer. Here are a few things you might consider:
Breakfast wraps. A solid, portable alternative to breakfast sandwiches. We include breakfast wraps like our Classic (eggs, onions, bell peppers, cheddar cheese), or the Ranchero (eggs, black beans, pico de gallo, cheddar cheese). They’re also available with gluten-free wraps for anyone who wants the portable experience but not the rest of the gluten experience.
Smoked salmon flatbread. There’s nothing like a flatbread to create a wholesome breakfast experience. Our smoked salmon flatbread comes with cream cheese and chives, full of the flavor and energy needed to get started with a great day.
Frittatas. If you’re not in the mood for something you can pick up, a frittata is one of the best sit-down breakfast dishes around. Our Mediterranean frittata includes zucchini, bell peppers, spinach, basil, and crumbled feta cheese.
We also offer a la carte options: morning pastries, parfaits, berry cups, fruit cups, fresh bagels, fat free yogurt, gluten free bagels, coffee, and cold brew.
If you want scrambled eggs and waffles, it’s not hard to find breakfast. You can find it just about anywhere in America. But if you want a delicious breakfast that’s ready for pick up, that’s another thing entirely. We offer breakfast boxes because we know you don’t always have the time to have a great breakfast. That’s why we make our breakfast boxes portable, ready to eat, and include a variety of options so you can feel like you had a great meal without the full sit-down experience.
