Biscuits to die for!

Great place to eat in Georgetown! Great atmosphere, excellent wait staff, biscuits to die for! Cute old diner-like building with more space than you would think.

This place has always pretty busy when we visit...perhaps because we usually visit on weekends. We always enjoy their delicious homey food and especially their desserts. You may even want to split an order with someone...the portions are generous! You simply must not leave without trying their coconut cream pie.

Fabulous and fresh food. This is an old style diner reminiscent of times past. The food is wonderful. We had made to order burgers, great fries and onion and local drinks. One in our party said his liver and onions said they were best ever. (I know, but some people like it) The local drink we had was Dublin (TX)... More

excellent food and very poor service. Management needs to get a clue. They need to pay more attention to their customers

Get there early as the lines are VERY long, but definitely worth the wait. Their pancakes are extremely good! They use fresh 'home-grown' ingredients, many from their own garden next to the restaurant! Great start for the day!

The monument chocolate pie is simply delicious and for anyone who loves chocolate, cream and pecans it is a must! Rich and silky smooth the pie is decadent.

Monument is a very popular local restaurant with large crowds. Unfortunately the restaurant does not handle the crowds well. For the second time in recent visits our table request was "lost" causing us to incure an inconveniently long wait and the eventual hassle of requesting and again waiting for a table (the second try for a table was much quicker)....

The Monument Cafe is one of those places that exudes, fresh, unique, family, garden and comfortable. Always friendly service and a crowd pleaser. I love passing this to my readers at #TexasHillCountry.com. I enjoy breakfast and dinner here. If you are in Georgetown.. make it a point, then go visit their fruit/vegetable stand next door.

It's been one of my favorites, until I experienced its inconsistencies today. At 12:10 PM, I'd expect all the lunch specials to still be available. I asked the waitress about the meatloaf special and found it had bell peppers, which I told her I'm allergic to. So, I went for the spinach & bacon quiche, which has never disappointed. However,...
