Food is ok. Service ok too. But a crowed, noisy place. Not for a romantic evening if you can't get a booth.

The owners care deeply that the experience at Cafe Monte is unique, delicious and memorable. You and your friends will love to come for breakfast, French press coffee and a french pastry, or a delicious lunch or dinner - or a late night drink with an appetizer. My favorite is the artichoke and shrimp crepes! Delicious no matter what you... More

My last day visiting my daughter in Charlotte and a really delicious breakfast to end off my short stay. Great Eggs Benedict and Croque Monsieur - a very busy establishment is (in my opinion!) testament to the quality of food and overall service of any restaurant.

We have been to Cafe Monte several times, but took friends of which this was their first time. We all agreed the food was top-drawer with a great selection. Service was impeccable, as usual. Don't be afraid to share this place with special friends!

Small but tasty menu. Medium pricing. Decent range of selections to handle varied tastes but stick to the French inspired dishes

While visiting my sister in Charlotte we went to Cafe Monte today for dinner. Very nice inside, and if you love mushtooms, go for the chicken and wild mushroom crepes. The dark meat chicken and the mushrooms and the light sauce in the delicate crepes were wonderful. If i lived here I'd be back there eating the crepes regularly. My... More
