Cafe type atmosphere with lots of room. Awesome food tastes like home cooking! Servers friendly with a real desire to make your visit the best. Vegetables come from their own garden! Generous portions at a reasonable price. We come here often and enjoy every visit - never disappointed.

Good solid Texas cafe food. Biscuits and gravy and home grown vegetables. A very busy popular place to chow down.

Great service and large helpings of really good food. I wish i could remember our servers name, but she was lots of fun. great timing too. They were real busy after the market days but we were still in our seats in less than 15 minutes. We will definitely be eating there again when we go back to town.

If you're having company coming to town make sure one of your meals out is at the Monument. They have some very creative twists on home style cooking.

I wanted to love this place, as I love cute little diners, which this is. But my food was just average (fried catfish - specifically asked for it to be extra crunchy - was actually as non-crunchy as it could have been and still be called fried) and the service was minimal at best. I sat at the counter by... More

Can't say enough about this place. All kinds of things to eat, lots of options. We were a big group and they were able to accommodate us. From breakfast to steak, they have it all on the menu. The dessert menu is outstanding. Do yourself a favor and stop here for a meal. the staff was very helpful with selections.

We had lunch yesterday and my husband lived the fried chicken! I had the chicken fried steak, really yummy. We both loved the mashed potatoes! The waitress suggested the gluten free chocolate pie and it was delicious!!!
