    Very good place for a brunch spot. I like the uniqueness of a bakery at the first, restaurant in the middle and bar at the back. The front staff could have been a bit more friendlier and welcoming. Food wise, typical American so nothing unique there which was a shame, otherwise I'd highly recommend.

    Amazing tuna sandwich, with hand made pita! Good pizza, hand made brick oven. Fresh ingredients, Srgt. Peppa. Spicy meatball pizza is really good too!!!. Freshly squeezed orange and great fruit juice. Great service and outdoor seating. Indoor is spacious and clean, beautiful. Highly recommended if near Monrovia! Sorry the last photo was the tuna sandwich, gone.

    This place is amazing! The food was outstanding and service was great!! The Monrovian has gotten a completely new look and huge upgrade to the menu. I believe there is a new owner and it shows!!! I went for Sunday brunch and I was thoroughly impressed with the pork shoulder Tamale grits. It was so tasty and packed a lot of flavor. They use a white grit which has such a smooth silky texture. They also have a bakery now which looks amazing. My family already has plans for our next visit because there are so many delicious looking items we want to try.

    The food was ok but the service was pretty bad. Got there at 11 on a Sunday and ti was really busy. 20 minite wait to get in, no big deal. Seated and ordered our drinks, then sat for another 15 minutes. The ordered our food, then sat for another 15 minutes. Drinks and food came out eventually. Pork belly hash was mostly potatoes, very little pork, and the flavor (onions, peppers. Garlic, etc) was a cold spoonful rather than a mix in. Side of Hollandaise tasted like it was mixed from a can. Ham, Egg, Swiss croissant was okay, but the outside of the croissant was overly flaky and crunchy. Like they had made that first then left it under a heater. Even the Earl Gray Tea tasted bland. As we waited and waited for food people would get up but because it was so busy tables would be left unbussed. Not sire if they don't have busboys or if someone called out. The staff was very friendly, but so amazingly slow. The new decor was nice, but lack of any covering on the floor made it so loud we couldn't hear each other. We probably won't go back.
