This is a buffet experience that you will not find anywhere else. Food is purchased or grown locally. It is excellent and offers a variety of starters usually two entrees and a variety of sweets. Nice clean restaurant close to the Versailles Palace located in the beautiful small town of Versailles. Go and try it you won't be disappointed.

Recently I visited the town of Versailles with a good friend of mine. Since she lives in Meudon, she had heard of the Monument Cafe, and was anxious to visit.
