World-famous dessert destination Milk Bar has loaded up a 1960s postal truck for its cross-country All You Can Treat tour, and, luckily for us, Minneapolis is its next stop. Founded by pastry chef Christina Tosi, the iconic New York City institution will land curbside outside her dear friend Gavin Kaysen’s acclaimed Spoon and Stable. “I’ve known Christina for 10+ years,” he explains. “This collaboration wasn’t just bound to happen — it was inevitable.”
Open for business August 2–3 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the truck will be serving up compost cookies, Milk Bar pie (formerly known as crack pie), corn flakes–crusted cereal milk soft-serve ice cream, care packages and much, much more. On top of that, Spoon’s bar will be open for business those afternoons for libations and savory snacks to accompany the sweet tooth trolley’s arrival.
In addition to the truck supplying endless treats, Tosi has teamed up with celebrated Spoon and Stable pastry chef Diane Moua to add a Milk Bar twist to some dishes during dinner service. “The honey and cream cake has been on the menu since Spoon’s opening,” notes Kaysen. “Diane and I instantly thought it was the perfect dessert for Christina to give her genius over to.”
So do yourself a favor and mark your calendar for this rare Midwest Milk Bar moment. If I’m been totally honest, I’m planning to order at least one of every treat, available both for here and to go.
