This is an excellent place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Small diner with very friendly staff. My husband loves the BBQ ribs and will go there often. There are a sufficient number of vegetarian items. The food is reasonably priced. The inside theme is "Marilyn Monroe", but done tastefully. They do not serve alcohol. Some outside seating is available.

Found it part way through our holiday had breakfast here two times. Had the eggs Benedict today very good. Earlier in the week a family sat down with their for and the staff took the dog out a bowl of water. Enjoyed both breakfasts. Very attentive staff.

Our family (and dog) enjoyed our meal at monroes. They have a reasonably priced menu and decent food. What we really loved was the ability to bring our dog along and sit outside. They even have a menu for the dogs!

Cute little place with boardwalk terrace. Good for breakfast, served all day, or lunch. Great pancakes and French toast. Loved their ceasar salad wrap. Wide vegetarian selection as well.

Glad to sit and get out of the rain so our family found this restaurant. Food was so so, prices reasonable. But beware when the waitress ask if you want bacon or other options on your burger. It will be extra. Waitress made it sound like it came with the order. I paid an extra $2 for bacon on my... More

We stopped in for breakfast on a recommendation, glad we did. I had the blue berry pancakes, with a side of beacon and coffee. Very good. My GF had the pancakes, minus the berries and a coffee. I am not a coffee drinker, but it was fresh and tasty, and my cup was quickly filled by our waitress. Several sidewalk... More

Enjoyed a lovely lunch here, sat outside overlooking the water. Good service & tasty food. Waitress recommended adding avocado to my husbands burger which he thought was delicious.

We were starving and the house we had rented along with 100,000 other houses didn't have power. We'd never been to Saugatuck and were just longing to find coffee and danish. We drove by Munroe's and decided to stop. The place was empty except for a table of 4 who were talking and finishing breakfast. We ordered eggs Benedict and... More
