Went here with family when visiting. Had a short wait but then we were accommodated. Typical diner atmosphere. Good variety of lunch options. Had the Reuben & the club sandwich and we would rate them as average. Despite the lunch crowd, service was very good..

The Monument is a Georgetown institution, and the food doesn't disappoint. Breakfast is a favorite at any hour, and entrees are diverse. Food is sourced from local growers as much as possible. The food is delicious, and specials vary daily.

I have been coming here for around 8 years, maybe 3-6 times a year. The service level is about as bad as I have had anywhere. I am bringing to think this is the standard set by management because it has gotten so bad. The waitress was polite but had subpar service levels. My wife had the turkey avocado sand... More

Monument Cafe is known for its organic farmed produce. The food is fresh, delicious and affordable. However it is well known and always busy. My favorite brunch spot in the area.

Very responsive wait staff. Pretty good Reuben sandwich. Will go back and try other items on the lunch special. We were there at 130PM and the specials were sold out. Must be good.!!

On the edge of the town centre this is a nice cafe with a market for good quality food attached. I only had a snack but the meals looked great too.

great service and great food. We stopped by several times while working in the area. We had breakfast and lunch items and were never disappointed. Service was always top rate. Would not hesitate to stop by again when we are in the area. If you stop by you won t be disappointed. Nice and clean with a good atmosphere.

The Monument is one of the all-time great diners. Their fried shrimp is the best you'll find anywhere. The chocolate pie with the crushed pecan crust is fabulous! Service is great, and Kayla, our server, was awesome!

Love the old building, a step back in time. We had great service. The food was pretty good, we had a hamburger and the King Ranch casserole. The KRC needed salt to kick the taste up a little bit; but, was still good. Another one to cross off the Triple D bucket-list.
