Monument Cafe uses organic when possible . My granddaughters always want to come here for breakfast. I love their salads and gluten free dessert. Service is fast and friendly. I eat there at least once a month.

Local friends from Georgetown recommended the Monument cafe. I had the corned beef hash. It was outstanding. Enjoyed every bite. Peach jam on my English muffin was very good.

This place is jumping on weekends. Wait for table was short and staff were very attentive. The food is all-American comfort food. Biscuits come with each order and they are great.

I don't eat desserts even though they look fabulous. I do know restaurants have a great deal of waste in the fresh desserts area and don't begrudge them their cost.
