Known as the Garlic City & famous for Garlic Festival in June / July timeframe, Gilroy is one of our fav summer destinations. For rest of the year we visit Garlic City cafe located at 7461 Monterey St, Gilroy, CA when we miss the garlic festival and its memories. It is a small place run by locals and offer goods/ services at alright prices but the food was superb. I generally have Garlic City Omelette, family also loves their burger which comes with garlic wine sauce moistened burger bread. Garlic creamy soup is our fav for the chilly windy Nor Cal winters.
