As Eater reported last week, Nancye Benson proprietor of the pioneering Moxie Rx food cart and former pastry chef of Woodsman Tavern and culinary director of Woodsman Market, opened her own cafe in North Portland on Nov. 8, transforming the former Atomic Pizza space into a light-filled place to linger over pastries, small plates and desserts.
The charming, 28-seat Milk Glass Market serves up breakfast and lunch fare like cheddar biscuits topped with an herbed egg and smoky bacon, amid warm wood, creamy white paint, and walls of windows.
Benson has stocked a small but well-curated selection of artisan items in the same vein as those carried at The Woodsman Market.
Currently Milk Glass Market is open until the early evening, but the plan is to expand the hours into the night and add cocktails.
Milk Glass Market: 2150 N. Killingsworth Ave., Portland; 503-395-4742
Hours: Tuesday through Sunday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m
