Milk & Honey Market Closes in Pigtown

| March 7, 2022 | 0 Comments

Milk & Honey Market by Vagrant Coffee closed last week at 906 Washington Blvd. in Pigtown. The 1,700 sq. ft. coffee shop at SAA/EVI’s Bath House Square development opened in September 2020.

Vagrant Coffee still owns a coffee shop in Federal Hill (formerly known as 3 Bean Coffee), a Milk & Honey Market location in Station North, and another coffee shop in West Philadelphia. The company also has a coffee catering business.

Vagrant Coffee Co-owner Josh Dew told in an email, “Yes, we have decided to close our Pigtown location. Covid was really difficult for us and we were not able to make it up to the viability point to stay open. We were able to keep our staff and move them to our other locations. Otherwise, things have been picking up with events.”

Ernst Valery of SAA/EVI told, “we are committed to replacing them.” He noted they have spoke to different groups interested in leasing the space. He said it’s a great space, but due to the location it is “probably not ready for a daily cafe just yet.”

Pigtown Main Street Executive Director Kim Lane released the following statement to

Pigtown MS is working with the property owner to secure a new tenant. This beautiful space is an asset to any established business who wants to expand or relocate. This area of Pigtown features the new GroundWork Kitchen with popular businesses including Suspended Brewery and Mobtown Ballroom. Pigtown MS is installing art work and landscaping for traffic calming at the intersection this spring.  It would be wonderful to have another restaurant for residents and visitors to have a good meal before drinking a craft beer at Suspended and then dancing at Mobtown.
