A new “dessert restaurant” is coming to Delano.

Cliff Bragg hopes to have Milkfloat open by early fall in the former Material Girls space at 535 W. Douglas, suite 140.

The shop will offer a menu of sweets including pies, cakes, tarts, fresh-baked cookies, brownies, hand-crafted sodas and coffee. Pastry chef Kaitlyn Huber will head the kitchen, which will have an open concept. Huber moved to Wichita from Michigan to take the job.

Bragg, who formerly worked as a health care administrator, said he didn’t so much want to open a business as work on a project that reflected his family’s values. He and his wife, local physician Dee Ann Bragg, want Milkfloat to be a place people escape negativity and celebrate life.

“We are being bombard so constantly with bad news – it's pervasive and unrelenting,” he said. “Milkfloat is all about celebrating and setting a table for people to come together and share moments and meaningful conversations with loved ones, about creating a place that is joyful and happy and celebratory.”

Also, he said, he’s always loved dessert.

Bragg said he’s offer a daily menu of about 10 items that would change with the seasons. He’ll have seating for about 60. The restaurant will be open from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
