Café au lait

A café au lait is traditionally the french way of preparing ‘coffee with milk’ both at home and in Cafés in Europe. Meaning simply “coffee with milk“.

In the US, ‘café au lait’ is defined as a coffee beverage consisting strong or bold coffee (sometimes espresso) mixed with scalded milk in approximately a 1:1 ratio.
