Although news broke today that Verve is pulling out of its Highland Park location, locals can now get their caffeine fix at the newest branch of La Monarca, soft opened last week. With openings in Boyle Heights, Hollywood, South Pasadena, Santa Monica, East LA, and Huntington Park, it's safe to say La Monarca is quickly dominating the LA pastry scene.
La Monarca Highland Park right on North Figueroa offers all the favorites from the ever-expanding chain. There's wedding cookie and cinnamon-flavored conchas, plenty of cookies, cakes, and that delicious Café Oaxaca to wash it all down. Pop in for a quick afternoon pick-me-up, or stay to take advantage of the free WiFi. Either way, it's definitely a boon for the neighborhood.
