What a cute shop with all sorts of goodies. The staff is really helpful and friendly. Everything was clean fresh and delicious. We tried the mini pies cream brûlée pumpkin cheesecake bar slice a cookies n cream cake. Would definitely recommend trying some yummy treats.
I like old town Monrovia. I discovered this cute little Cuban restaurant/bakery called Merengue on Myrtle Avenue today. I ordered a Cuban tamale, strawberry shortcake and a double cortadito for lunch. I enjoyed all items I had and the prices were reasonable. There are still so many items I wanna try on their menu. I'll return.
Food/Taste/Flavor: 4/5 - some pastries are much better than others. I can eat 10 of the mini salted caramel tart things if given! Carrot cake is must try with perfect blend of spice for the cake and sweetness from the frosting. It’s a much finer texture than usual which makes it that much more delicious. New York Cheesecake was extremely dense and more sour than expected. Napoleon had flaky pastry and extremely smooth pastry cream. Ambience: 5/5 - nice and clean decoration. Very comfortable to be at and would loved to have eaten there if we weren’t meeting up with friends. Service: 3/5 - had to wait around 8 minutes even though there was only one person ahead of us. Two staff was behind the counter but not sure what the other was doing. Value for price: 4/5 - a bit more pricey but worth it for the yummier pastries
We drop by here for a quick dessert bite.. great customer service and the pastries looks delicious 🤤. Definitely need to share on the cakes though lol I definitely was trying to finished a slice by myself and so did he 😂.
A favorite place to go for Cuban bake goods and wonderful breakfast and lunch items. Here is a 1/4 sheet fruit tart especially made for a family birthday party. Gorgeous and delicious!
