Mil Bakery

Choosing just one baked good from this Korean cafe should be considered villainy. Mil Bakery serves a rotating list of unique pastries that will have you inventing new words to describe how good they taste. Run by an ex-Clark Street Bread baker, this inventive bake shop offers things like pound cake with aromatic ssuk herb, hojicha mochi muffins with toasted black sesame seeds, and miso honey cinnamon rolls. Mil is currently looking for a permanent brick-and-mortar, but you can pick up some incredible baked goods at their pop-up inside Hanchic in Koreatown. The small pastry operation is open for walk-ins Friday to Sunday, but we recommend pre-ordering a box ahead of time because they do sell out.
