  1. Greetings, whycook!

    Have you tried Cafe Massilia? Located in nostalgic downtown Monrovia, CM is a quaint, charming French bistro owned and operated by two Frenchmen who both hail from Marseille, the oldest city in France. Indeed, they have succeeded in bringing a pleasant taste of French culture and cuisine to the San Gabriel Valley.

    I have enjoyed several delicious lunches and dinners there and they are now open for breakfast as well. The menu has recently been updated and expanded. Among my favorites are the escargots, goat’s cheese crepes, spinach and brie quiche, rack of lamb and the frog’s legs. The dessert crème brulee is wonderful too. I look forward to trying their cassoulet (Wednesday) and bouillabaisse (Friday) specials very soon.

    The ambience is warm and inviting as is the attentive service. You can choose to dine inside or true bistro style on one of two outside front tables. Open 7 days, B/L/D.
