Previously famous for their all you can ribtacular special on Wednesdays, Cafe Ish has since departed and made way towards Redfern. What it promises is a classic Australian and American selection of delights with an asian twist. Keen to try out this, I headed down to Redfern on my first break of the week.
It has the whole authentic milk bar vibe going on, burgers and milk shakes on the pass, red neon lights, juke box and a pacman gaming machine to boot.

While some may find the environment quite hectic, the waitress's bubbly and energetic character exudes an endearing and humorous warmth to the diner; single handedly capable of running the front house dashing from one end to the other gracefully. Milk Bar by Cafe Ish is the modern day milk bar gen Y never had. All that's missing is the Marilyn Monroe look alike and a 50s Sinatra soundtrack playing loudly but I guess that's what the juke box is for. Until next time.
