A long standing Old Town coffee shop has recently received a jolt of energy from its new owner. Friends Cafe -- which replaces the former Monrovia Coffee House -- celebrated its grand opening over the weekend with discounted coffee drinks.
Since re-opening in May following cosmetic improvements to the interior of the building, new customers have poured in to enjoy what Friends Cafe is describing as the "new atmosphere." New furniture, paint and art work are among the improvements.
Friends Cafe also served as the host to KNX-1070 last month when the radio station profiled Monrovia and other San Gabriel Valley cities.
The coffee house is located at 425 S. Myrtle Avenue and is open daily from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Click here for the website.
