The fried chicken was top notch as were the sweet potato fries and the biscuits. And the breakfast servings are plentiful with huge pancakes. My favorite touch is the sweet tea - they present you with a small container of liquified sugar (some kind of ultra sweet syrup) to mix in that had me smiling for hours after - it... More

Granted we went on Thanksgiving but the staff has no clue how to work in high gear. Patrons were calling out to wait staff to come take an order which is crazy. We were there at 1pm and they were already running out of food. Poor planning and senseless. They've been in business long enough they should know how to... More

We've been going back now for breakfast/brunch fairly often. Service has been excellent and the light plate breakfast is a great value. It's always clean and we're seated quickly. Staff has been consistently efficient and the food is great so I wanted to make sure and give an updated review based on this really positive improvement! Thanks, Monument Cafe, for... More

Dining alone I sat at the counter allowing a view of the kitchen and the variety of dishes they offer. I ordred poached eggs, toast, bacon and coffee. Eggs were excellent, service was fair, coffee fair. Was pricy for a standard breakfast.

Free range eggs, home made biscuits, but again the coffee is a different tasting coffee! Fair trade coffee, all things organic. One can tell you are close to Austin!! Great customer service with the coffee issue. They took the cost of the coffee off the bill! Food was tasty, but spicy sausage and bacon and gravy! Pancakes are huge! Wonderful... More

Make the drive just to eat at the Monument Cafe. The staff are so friendly, welcoming, and attentive, and the food is just amazing! There are plenty of delicious breakfast options you can order all day, but lunch has just as many amazing choices that you'll immediately plan to come back to try something new! No matter what time of... More

Restaurant has a nice atmosphere and waiter was attentive. The biscuits we got before our meal were delicious. The fried chicken salad and chicken fried steak were yummy!

The Monument burger was perfectly cooked and served on a homemade bun. You can add yummy extras like bacon, avocado and jalepenos. The desserts looked amazing-but we were full of burger and sweet potato fries. Local beer on tap and tremendous service.

Stopped by about 10 on a Monday. We both ordered the monument breakfast, coffee & juice. Food was delicious, OJ was FRESH squeezed and coffee continued to be refilled but our friendly server. Love The Monument!

Food very basic if you like meatloaf,burgers,popular and crowded. Get there early or later if you want a seat. Food ok it won't make you say wow that's the best food I've ever had.
