Kristen Heathcote-Latham, Stephanie Przygocki, Marc Latham, Dan Gilbert and Margan Schwab have opened their Suburban Farmhouse at 108 Federal St. In Milton. The strangely eclectic little spot is an amalgam of coffee shop/bakery (sort of)/home decor/shabby chic emporium offering products from candles to jewels to chocolates to pillows to cool antique-looking tchotchkes.
But the real goodies lie behind the Suburban Farmhouse counter where Kristen Latham works her magic. Magic in the form of, say … the CRUFFIN. Is it a croissant? Is it a muffin? Who cares! It’s cheesy, savory (with your choice of sausage or bacon), moist and amazingly satisfying. Leave your diet at home, as you’re going to remember this thing for a while. Be sure to consume it when it’s warm.
Kristen also has sticky buns (made with croissant dough!), cookies and these amazing marshmallows that sell out fast. Think of a marshmallow colliding with a multi-layered Smith Island Cake. This is what would happen. And there are the drinks. I had a coffee that looked like a milkshake (it’s the Almond Joy latte. Be afraid!), and of course there is a fully functional espresso machine for all your caffeinated needs.

There is a little sitting area that will be expanded soon (by popular demand, and as of this writing Suburban Farmhouse has only been open for two days). The Suburban Farmhouse is open from 6:30 am until 5 pm Monday – Friday, and from 7 am until 2 pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
Early returns suggest that the Almond Joy latte and the iced chai are don’t miss bites (and sips).
If you are coming from Coastal Highway, turn WEST on Rt. 16 like you are going to Po’Boys. Pass Po’Boys and turn left at the next light (Union St.). Drive down into Milton. When you get to the M&T bank, turn RIGHT on Federal St. Cantina Ultima will be on your right and Suburban Farmhouse is right next door. Enjoy! Call them at (302) 750-3276.
