Very very good. I only ate here once and am trying to schedule a return trip. Waitstaff was really pleasant, but I think someone had called in sick as they were really harried. Food was really good. Give this one a try!

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,...

Monument Cafe brings American diner classics to the forefront with local/organic sourcing and twists on already great food. Such as the Monument Cafe Chocolate Pie with the pecan praline(ish) crust! Always great service. I come here as often as possible when I'm in the area.

We went for a Sunday breakfast. We left our names and they texted when they had our table ready. it took about 15 minutes. The restaurant has plenty of servers and our order was taken immediately when we sat down. The coffee kept pouring and the server was very attentive. The food was very good and exactly as ordered.

When I moved to Georgetown two years ago, Monument Cafe was known as staple in Georgetown community and it was on my short list of restaurants that I would frequent through the week. It was nothing for me to stop in three or four times a week for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Over the past nine months, something has changed...... More

Excellent organic/local cafe. Food is always great and service too even when they are packed. And the homemade biscuits before your meal.... YUM!

We went in for brunch and found it busy as always. Locally roasted coffee -- a little on the light side for my personal taste, but still delicious. Ingredients are locally sourced, and yet prices remain reasonable. Go for breakfast and be sure to have the biscuits and gravy!

If you visit Georgetown you have to go by this place for pie and coffee! Their entrees are good..not over the top but certainly not horrible. Service is awesome..everyone at the monument is so friendly!
