Food was good. Beef Hash and breakfast sandwich were delicious. Hash brown was good. Quirky place but cute and would return with extra quarters in the meter. ( took over 20 minutes to get food)

Just across from the park, a quirky little spot, with a hot chocolate that is like a desert. Waffles that are tiny and precious. Fresh squeezed orange juice and CBD confections for the afternoon. pleasant for lunch and does cocktails in the evening.

Monarch & The Milkweed is a comfortably intimate setting with just a handful of tables and a small bar. Nonetheless, this is a restaurant where each step of dinner is prepared and served with great care and pride. The bartender was skilled and the bar...More

We came in at the end of the evening for dessert and drinks after having flatbreads near by! A lovely array of choices, fresh-baked tarts and ice cream were all on the menu! They also carry some CBD chocolates, which we did not try on...More
