Wonderful breakfast menu. Great lunch and dinner menus! Food has been good every time we visited. Great desserts! They can be busy, so you might want to visit late breakfast, early lunch, late lunch, or early dinner. They have a market attached to it that sells vegetables, bread, organic items, meat, and gift items.

We love it here. The atmosphere is great. You really can appreciate the hard work put into the preparation of your food with a full view of the expansive kitchen. There's always a full staff. If you go on a night when they have their King Ranch Casserole you're in luck. Everything on their breakfast menu is delicious. The last... More

We stopped for lunch with 3 adults and 2 kids and spent $56 before tip. They were pretty busy at 12:30 on a Thursday with the lunch rush but turning over tables quickly. The parking lot is big and adequate. I wish they would have had a pancake option on the kids menu because their pancakes are the size of... More

Monument Café delivers great food and service every time we've visited. Just 20-30 minutes north from downtown Austin, it's an excellent outing. Old school diner feel with very attentive wait staff. Most often there is a short wait, but totally worth it. The food is fresh, a wide variety of options, and not overly expensive. Definitely save room for their... More

We absolutely loved the Georgetown Cafe. The experience begins with the look of the restaurant...sleek, modern, lots of black and white, with cool window shades. Then there is the service: friendly, caring, attentive. And, of course, there is the amazing food. I loved the King Ranch casserole and also had a side of sweet potatoes...possibly the best casserole ever. For... More

You will probably never get a bad meal at monument. It is a local institution well visited by hometown residents. I would go there more often, but it is pricey for what you get. There are too many other places that are as good but more reasonably priced. There is another issue that will either excite you, or discourage you.... More

Just stopped in on a whim while passing through Georgetown. Glad I did. I ordered several vegetables, which were seasoned well and very good. The diner had a retro feel which was cute and comfortable. Service was quite good considering it was noon rush. Would definitely recommend.

We stopped here after househunting in Georgetown with Joseph Aubin, the best realtor in Texas! We had Truck Stop Enchilada and another breakfast entree at 7 PM and it sure was worth stopping for! Our server was a great gal, very helpful, and our food came quickly and it was hot.....and very tasty.

Brought a large group to this restaurant for breakfast. The wait was fine given the size of our party. They accommodated us. Everyone enjoyed their selections. Can't complement this establishment enough. It truly deserves their high rating on trip advisor. Frankly it is better than any breakfast place I have run across in Austin. Will certainly return on our next... More

I've eaten here twice now. I had the chicken fried steak the first time which was very good, but the chicken Lombardy (a special) I had the second time was outstanding. They have a wonderful Monument salad that you can have as a substitute for 2 sides. It has strawberries, candied pecans and a lovely maple vinaigrette. There is an... More
