Inspired by the drama television series of America which tells a story about the life of a family living on a farm in Walnut Grove, Minnesota, in the 1870s and 1880s, the owner of Milkbar wished to create a nice place for people who want to have drinks in a natural environment covered with trees and breezes.
Milkbar features a small wooden bar for guests to order drinks and a
small garden. Besides a line of tamarind trees along the sidewalk, a big tree inside the garden gives guests a shade to enjoy drinks outside on sunny days. A wooden swing tied to a branch of the tree is also one of the highlights of the cafe.

Drinks at Milkbar are served in bottles for milk and jars for smoothies.
