Milkweed Opens With Shakshuka, Breakfast Sandwiches, and More

It’s a new family-run cafe in Mission Hill


Mission Hill welcomed a new dining option last week with the opening of Milkweed at 1508 Tremont St. The family-owned restaurant, which is a sibling to Dorchester’s Blarney Stone, underwent a full renovation before opening, per a tip Eater received about the opening, and it’s up and running, serving a varied menu ranging from breakfast sandwiches to blackened mahi mahi.

Milkweed sits between Brigham Circle and Roxbury Crossing, as Boston Restaurant Talk reported earlier this month. Its menu spans breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and owners David Cawley and Ben Johnson secured a liquor license to serve beer, wine, and a handful of cocktails after 11 a.m.

The breakfast menu (served until 1 p.m.) includes shakshuka, egg sandwiches, and fruit and yogurt bowls, plus items like French toast and berry pancakes. Lunch features salads, sandwiches, soups, and entrees ranging from spaghetti and meatballs to mac and cheese and steak tips, while dinner includes an extension of the entree list, plus chicken wings, mussels, and a farmer’s board of meat and cheese, among other options.

Milkweed operates Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
