2219 Honolulu Ave Montrose, CA 91020 (818) 957-5282 You will be glad that you read this review. The place opens for coffee at 7am, but doesn't start serving breakfast til 9am on Saturday. Well played black cow. My friend and I arrived a bit earlier, thinking that we'd be the first to go there and not have to wait in a line. The plan totally backfired. Gave us sometime to shoot some footage for our short video clip.
Black cow offers a softly lit interior with brick walls. That matched with the wooden tables and chairs. Works very well for that rustic feel. It's the type of ambiance you want to have in the morning. Generous portions of food, friendly service, and everything decently price. It's one of the better breakfast/brunch place I've tried a while.
We ordered the corn beef skillet, the eggs Benedict, and an order of crunchy French toast to share. And we washed it all down with a large order of their Columbia dark roast French pressed coffee. It was a full-on assault on breakfast. -corn beef skillet, the sauce on this was delicious. The eggs were perfectly cooked. My only complaint for this dish was that it was slightly too salty. Think they forgot to compensate for the saltiness in the corn beef. -the eggs Benedict, love the fact that they used a croissant instead of the traditional English muffin. I'm sure you can still get it with an English muffin if you asked. -crunchy French toast, not the best French toast in town, but it was not bad at all. -French press, this is the good stuff. Bold in flavor and rich in consistency. Definitely a coffee lover's dream.
Everything came out to be about $42. If you think about it, we ate enough to feed 3 people. Just ordered a bit more because we wanted to try as much as they have to offer. There's metered parking up in front and parking lot in the back. Started to be super busy around 10am. Check out our video for this place.
