This place is a landmark in Georgetown. It was so popular when the owners moved to another location and enlarged it, they kept the style the same. Since it is such a popular place there can be a wait and limited parking, but it's worth it.

The place is very dirty, and they have rats! Not a clean restaurant, and they are overpriced! Had to wait along time for check, will not be going back, was not impressed!

I've never been to the cafe after brunch but I have heard great things. My large family meets their a couple times a year for a wonderful breakfast! I definitely recomment their peppered bacon and fresh squeezed orange juice!

PROS: great breakfast

Food is very good-like stepping back in time -could be back in the 50's. Large orders - busy atmosphere - prepare to wait -but well worth the wait. One trip entices you to return to try other items on the menu. Prepare to hike if parking lot is full -great food - not inexpensive.

PROS: Great food - all the local favorite recipes
CONS: may have to hike for parking lot is small - could be long wait

Perfect for a Sunday morning, the breakfasts at Monument are second to none. With a friendly staff and laid-back, down home feel the cafe seems to take you to another time. Don't miss out on their lunch and dinner specials either--their pies are to die for.

The Monument Cafe is one of the best deals for great home cooked meals in Georgetown! With a rotating selection of daily specials, and a solid menu of sandwiches, salads, soups, and Texas-style comfort food (often with a twist!), I've always left satisfied. They always start your meal off with flaky, buttery biscuits, and the service is very friendly. Make sure to save room for dessert- you won't want to miss the Monument Pie. They also have a great website with the daily specials posted.

PROS: great food, friendly people
CONS:

I went to breakfast at the Monument Cafe for the first time a few months ago. There was a little bit of a wait but it was worth it. The food was very fresh. I especially liked the pepper bacon. You can't go wrong with pepper bacon!

I decided to stop by there for dinner and was impressed with that as well. The chicken fried chicken is very good. The waitress told me that the chicken fried steak was really good, too. I decided to order it on my next visit. I wasn't as impressed with this selection. But maybe chicken fried steak isn't my thing.

Also--you need to know the "trick" for getting the scrumptious bread. They frequently run out so if they don't bring you any--just ask for it. They will give you some as soon as the next batch is ready.

And be sure to check their website for the daily special and desserts.

As far as all the people complaining about the management, it's really been a non-issue for me since I haven't really had any reason to interact with them. Our servers have all been pleasant and attentive. And--on any given shift--I've counted upwards of 20 employees workin' hard to take care of the customers.

*This next part has nothing to do with the food or service*

The new location is really nice. I just wish they would do something with the interior. It's stark white. No color. I think it would be nice if they painted the place or added some decor. Nothing crazy--maybe just a light green for the walls or...something! It's a little too visually sterile looking for my taste.

But the food makes up for the lack of atmosphere so you owe it to yourself to stop by the next time you're in Georgetown.

Pros: Fresh Food

this is the real deal - a cafe that actually makes all its own food and uses mainly local suppliers - it is a community place and very family friendly

I have to agree with the comment about the managers and overworked waitstaff. been going for years and loved it but in the past couple of years with the change of management, not so much, We love the food and the owners but when the general manager david was hired, i really dont think it was for the best. Now on top of it all, you now have Jeanette who was a waitress, who we avoided at all cost, always insisting on sitting on the other side of the room where she was stationed. Between the two of them yelling most of the time, its too much, cant enjoy ourselves and the feeling of once being a part of the monument family
no longer exists. One the of the things we loved the most about Monument was the familiar faces, our certain waitress etc, but now they are no longer there, and sometimes I wonder why???????????
We do still go on occasions but not like we used to.

The new site for this famed old Georgetown favorite is roomy and family-inviting! It's farther north on the same S. Austin Ave., but easy access for anyone in neighboring towns, including Austin proper. The waitstaff make you feel like you're part of the family, which fits the dining atmosphere and gets your taste buds ready for the treats that follow. The special for the night, the chicken quesadillas, were just right, with just enough zing for a Southwestern taste. Try the rice and two other sides of your choice. Two parties at our table had a superb club sandwich dinner, and a young diner gave us his teenage thumbs up on the bacon cheeseburger. The shrimp were huge and juicy, for my 81-year old mother, along with the sweet potatoes, zucchini, and squash, downed by a combination of people from the table, such that none were left. Two of us had the old favorite, chicken fried steak, and neither of our dinners were left standing. My broccoli was cut perfectly and blended well with the main course, and the mashed potatoes not only tasted superb, but were just the right amount for the dinner, not over-filling. One side order deserves special mention, and that is the carefully chosen combination fruit salad that leaves a taste you want to take home with you. Give the new site a try, go with fun and great taste in mind, and you won't leave disappointed!

Pros: Food, service, family atmosphere

Cons: Parking a bit inconvenient if crowded, and family-level noise if you're looking for a quiet getaway

We have been regulars at the Monument since it opened and have always enjoyed the good food and service. However, while the food is still good the quiet diner atmosphere is, sadly, no more. The "new" Monument has the kitchen and even the dish washing area open to the dining room. Really, what were they thinking? Our recent visit was horrible. The constant clanging of silverware and the banging of dishes made so much noise that everyone had to shout above the din to be heard, which added to the overall noise factor. We finally gave up trying to carry on a conversation, ate our food, and left disappointed. We regularly bring clients and out of town guests to the Monument, but no more. Too bad, it was a decent place.

great food and friendly excellent waitstaff but management seems disrespectful to their servers. i have a hard time enjoying my meal while listening to the shrill voice of the female manager (janet?) lecturing and threatening her waitstaff. Having spent some time waitressing when I was in college I am amazed at the level of service these young servers (mostly college or high school kids) provide. they sometimes seem stretched thin though as i have often noticed they are asked to host, bus, and wait tables during busy hours. the most noticeable occurence of this is during the busy lunch rush when there is no host at the door and the servers are already busy at their tables. Management, if you want to maintain good customer service i suggest you figure it out and pay the labor costs required. Maybe Janet's time would be better spent helping the people waiting at the door instead of yelling for her servers who are already busy taking care of their customers to do it.
Despite this I will keep coming back because the food is excellent. Kudos to the servers and cooks.

My husband and I have eaten here numerous times. The food is always really good and the portions are large. We enjoy their dinner specials and fresh-baked bread. If you like home-cooking, this is THE restaurant in Georgetown for you. The staff is always friendly and the atmosphere is really nice. This is a great family restaurant worth driving to.

The cafe food is always good hear. They buy from several local organic farms. It is a cool place for a diner. The service is fast. The management is friendly. Everything is organic. Fish, burgers, quiche, chicken, steak, soups, ... Don't forget to try Nikki's fruit salad. My 3.5 yr old and I love it.

The food is good. This is a cool little cafe. I hear they are expanding too. Everything is organic. Old people, families, teens, yuppies, everyone around Georgetown goes this. This is a great place to eat if you visit central texas. I like any fish dinner they serve. My 3.5 year old enjoys the biscuit with honey. They have great desserts but we like the Nikki's fruit salad too.

It's good food and a fun atmosphere. It's clean and the portions are plenty. I have to agree that sometimes it's hard to get the servers attention and you have to wait for them to notice you which takes away from the enjoyment. But overall you can get a great meal at a decent price.

These are the good folks that deserve to stay around for along time! Such a pleasant trip to the cafe, and the atmosphere could not be beat! Again, good job guys!

We have been frequent diners for several years. We appreciate the fresh made food, and the use of natural and organic ingredients. The quality of the food is very good. The quality of the wait staff is very inconsistent
Bad wait staff makes for a bad dining experience, and in more than one occasion the experience has not been good. Mostly distracted, inexperienced, inattentive (have to bed for that lemonade refill).
We come back, but it is ussually not our first choice.
