The Peach Cafe, Monrovia, CA

The Peach Cafe Restaurant Review

: In 2005, Nita Millstein opened this charming café in a century-old brick building in Old Town Monrovia, which originally housed a garage. Glendale artist Robert Brady brightened the airy space with his 3-D sculptures and paintings. Now, chef Chris Grattan helms The Peach, which remains a real-deal breakfast and lunch spot. Massive buttermilk pancakes contain plump blueberries or chocolate chips. Unique sides include bourbon-mashed sweet potatoes and scalloped potatoes made with cream, spices, nutmeg and white cheddar. Available weekends only, Peach Café Benedict combines bacon-studded maple syrup cornmeal waffles with country ham and white cheddar sauce. At lunch, the short rib grilled cheese packs sourdough with cheddar, Fontina, caramelized onions and tomato. Among signature coffee drinks are foam-capped café mochas and vanilla lattes. Make sure to swing by the pastry case for tantalizing baked goods and cookies.
