A trip to Daisy’s Milkbar is like experiencing a time travel mash-up between your childhood and the 1950s. You’ll be stopped in your tracks by the lolly shelves baring all the favourites that you would bug your parents for – ovalteenies, milko bars, wizz fizz and jars upon jars of milk bottles, bananas and who could forget those fake lolly teeth. But this is more than just your average corner shop milk bar – the lollies will become a secondary agenda once you’ve seen what’s for brunch.

While you will find the usual milkshakes, sundaes and burgers that tend to grace the menus of old-school milk bars, owners Jessica Barnes and Jake de Varine-Bohan have added a modern touch to the menu while maintaining the classics.

The breakfast burrito is a must for starting the day right, literally filled to the brim with scrambled eggs, bacon, chorizo, potato, cheese and given an amazing flavour with chilli, coriander, jalapeño and chipotle sauce. Daisy looks out for the vegetarians too by offering an option that replaces bacon and chorizo with beans.

While Double Roasters is the coffee on duty to wake you up, it’s pretty hard to say no to a shake. While Daisy’s Milkbar nails your standard chocolate, strawberry and caramel classics, they up the ante a notch with their deluxe shakes, including Nutella, salted caramel, chocolate fudge and the coveted Turkish delight. They also host a special milkshake flavour of the week, which has recently included the pistachio and Persian fairy floss milkshake and even more childhood reminiscing over the fairy bread milkshake.

Much like the shakes, you’ll find there are also weekly jaffle specials too. While you could order a ham, cheese and tomato toastie, it’s almost expected you should try Ucella’s Jaffle (named after head chef Ucella Ellicot) that is filled with pulled pork, mac & cheese and BBQ sauce.

For a really authentic experience 50s experience, you should definitely dig into the chocolate crackle sundae. You’ll need to bring a date to get through this ice cream delight, complete with rocky road chunks, chocolate crackle, espresso fudge sauce and of course topped with whipped cream and a cherry.

If you’ve ever felt like you were born in the wrong era, then whack on a polka dot dress or leather jacket, head to this adorable Petersham café and make your way through the pastel pink door.
