In talking to the locals, they all recommended this place for breakfast. A little pricey, but worth it! Their homemade jellies and jams took me back to my Grandma's kitchen!

Feels like an old timey diner, very cute, open, and nostalgic. Biscuits were YUMMY!! Onion rings lightly battered and divine. Burger just ok and fries ho hum. Waitress was grumpy and out of touch with ordering system.

Your basic Diner style food but with an upscale kick. From Chicken-Fried Steak to meatloaf, it's all good. Get their early at lunch to get the King Ranch Casserole before it's sold out, mmm mmm good!

This place is a must if you want a great breakfast in Georgetown. Ordered the whole wheat pancakes that were as good as they were huge. Everyone else at our table was pleased with their meals too.

Extremely good breakfast. They offer a wide selection with everything tasty. I couldn't try everything I wanted to but what I had was all good. Interesting condiment store in same building.

I’ve been going to Monument Cafe for several years now. Every time, without fail, I am treated to really home cooked dishes made so fresh and flavorful! Equally impressive is the service staff — friendly and efficient. If you’re in the Austin area, stop in...More
