All-day brunch restaurant The Real Milk and Honey Cafe now open in College Park 

A Food Network star is bringing his comfort food to College Park.

Chef Sammy Davis Jr., who won “Chopped: Redemption,” and restaurateur Monique Rose, opened The Real Milk and Honey Cafe Monday at 3719 Main St.

The restaurant’s “over the top” brunch-focused menu, according to a press release, offers dishes including honey and oats French toast, jumbo lump crab hash and a full waffle bar. Beverage selections include mimosas and sangrias.

The 2,500 square-foot, 75-seat space includes an outdoor patio and “museum-like” decor, with “an environment inspired by legendary musicians across all genres.”

Davis and Rose’s umbrella company, Milked, LLC, also includes three Milk & Honey locations in Maryland and Washington, D.C. The pair licensed the Milk & Honey name in 2017 to former business partners; under that agreement, Epic Lounge was relaunched as Milk & Honey at 5495 Cascade Road. After a two-year partnership, Rose and Davis parted ways with the Cascade location, hence the reason for adding “The Real” to the name of the College Park restaurant. 

“We have always had a presence on the Atlanta restaurant scene” Rose said in a prepared statement. “After the tremendous success we have had in (Maryland and D.C.), Chef Sammy and I wanted to return to Atlanta where we know Milk & Honey already has a strong following, and again offer Georgia diners the authentic taste, the distinct ambiance, and soulful style of the Milk & Honey brand.”

The restaurant will be open from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 9 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday-Saturday; and 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Sunday. 

The Real Milk & Honey is located on the same strip of Main Street as seafood restaurant Soul Crab and the newly-opened Virgil’s Gullah Kitchen.
