“So slow”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

. My receipt shows we paid for our order at 13.22. The coffee arrived almost immediately and was very good. The sandwiches arrived at 2.08. Unacceptable. The waitress said 'sorry for the delay' avoiding our eyes and placing the plates down hastily. Food was fine but strewth the service is poor.

“Very very good 10/10”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Stunning breakfast, delicious coffee. Do it you won't be dissapointed.
Toilets need an upgrade tho! My review has to be 100 characters apparently so don't bother to read this bit.

“Excellent food, excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Decided to meet some friends at Monty's for breakfast. We've been before and always had good service. We ordered the French toast bacon sandwich which was amazing and the bacon cheese bagel with poached egg - again this was superb and the eggs done perfectly. I like my coffee a certain way (pedantic i know) but the staff were more than accommodating and i had an excellent cup of coffee. The service was quick and efficient. This will be my breakfast 'waterhole' for the foreseeable future when visiting Plymouth.

Only had half an hour to grab lunch and the staff were very accommodating. Food was fresh and well presented. Well worth a visit.
