New Davidson Restaurant Coming in December: Milkbread
Joe and Katy Kindred are proud to announce the opening of their third restaurant: Milkbread. Opening in their hometown of Davidson, right down the road from where Kindred opened in 2015, Milkbread will be an all-day café with a menu, led by Chef Joe Kindred, offering milk bread donuts, crispy chicken, bowls, and salads. Coffee, espresso and non-alcoholic drinks will be served all day, with natural wine and local beer available into the evening.
When the shutdown because of the pandemic started in March 2020, the Kindred team was quick to rally with their community and pivot to develop a menu that traveled well. They saw that people were in need of comfort, optimism, and nostalgia. The biggest hits were milk bread donuts, crispy chicken sandwiches, and their socially distanced sommelier, with a rotation of fun, small production, natural wines to learn about and enjoy at home.
The Kindred team partnered with local coffee brand Summit Coffee last spring to serve milk bread donuts to the community last spring through Summit’s takeover of an iconic drive-thru bank in Davidson. Now, Joe and Katy are thrilled to give all these pandemic pivots a permanent home to be enjoyed daily. To continue their partnership, a private label house roast by Summit Coffee will be served at milkbread.
The café will feature a clean, minimalistic design, led by Katy Kindred, with order at the counter service for dine-in, outdoor seating, and takeout, with delivery available. Slated to open later this year, milkbread will be located at 624 Jetton Street in Davidson, and will be open seven days a week, 7:00 am – 9:00 pm.
The Kindred team is hoping to open the doors to Milkbread in December.
