Kindred owners Joe and Katy Kindred are opening milkbread, an all-day cafe with milk-bread doughnuts, crispy chicken, vegetable bowls and more.

Davidson, North Carolina, is one lucky place.

On Wednesday afternoon, Joe and Katy Kindred announced the opening of their third restaurant: milkbread, an all-day cafe which will open later this year, down the street from Kindred in Davidson.

Chef Joe Kindred’s menu will include:

  • milk bread doughnuts
  • crispy chicken
  • vegetable focused bowls
  • salads

Also, coffee, espresso and non-alcoholic drinks will be served during the day, with small-production independent wine and beer available during the evenings.

During the earlier days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Kindred’s team pivoted to a menu that would travel well. Some of the most-ordered items included milk bread doughnuts and crispy chicken sandwiches. The team’s socially-distanced sommelier was also popular: small-production independent wines to drink at home.

And now, milk bread doughnuts and crispy chicken will be part of the new story, as well. “After such a dark and scary time where we were all kept apart, we’re thrilled that we can create a bright, sunny place for people in our community to gather again,” Katy Kindred told CharlotteFive on Wednesday.

Kindred partnered with its neighbor, Summit Coffee, to serve milk bread donuts at Summit’s drive-thru bank conversion to drive-thru coffee. Speaking of coffee: a private label house roast by Summit Coffee will be served at milkbread.

The Kindred team is also partnering with Charlotte business HEX Coffee for an espresso roast only available at milkbread. The cafe will also partner with Charlotte’s Verdant Bread for its sourdoughs.

The milkbread space feature a minimalistic design, led by Katy Kindred. Fast-casual service will include dine-in and outdoor seating. Takeout and delivery will be available.
