La Monarca Bakery, above all else, has been a place of communidad. For the organizers, to the business people, to the students and the passersby, La Monarca, like all cafes, are a place of community. We were thrilled to discover that our Highland Park location was exactly that for Conan Gray while he wrote "Kid Krow," as he described in this piece by Vogue.
“I came here every single day and just like, wrote for hours” Conan explained.
The café is a place of inspiration, where artists like him can meditate on their creative process. It is that air of community, of creative stimulation, and of cultural celebration, that La Monarca Bakery takes pride in participating. To the creatives of the world, the hard-workers, and those who need a break – the local Café is sanctuary.
