Great food for all meal times plus they have a big event room up stairs! Always great food! I love breakfast there and lunch! Don't get in town much for dinner but they have outside dinning also!

Arrive early and even with ample seating you can expect a delay. The Monrovian is a popular place and wait times do exist, even when the outdoor dining is available.

Very attentive staff and good food at a good price in a nice atmosphere in the heart of Monrovia. Must try at least once. We ate there at breakfast with a large group. Ample seating.

This is a stable, enjoyable, dependable dining restaurant. Nothing too special, except the wonderul service, everything is good, pleasant and serene. Just what you might expect in a restaurant with Family in the name.....everyone can find something to enjoy! I like breakfast there on the weekends sitting outside. You find your spot!

My Mother and I both had vegetable soup. It was OK. Fairly tasty. Big chunks of vegetables. Service was very good. Be aware if going on a Friday evening that there is a farmer's market type activity every week and many of the street's are blocked off. You have to get there by taking the street behind it.

If you are in the mood for a nice family style diner this is a good place to go. They have a large menu and you can find something for everyone. It has a "homey" kind of feel.

I've been coming here for 10+ years for breakfast. Denver omelet is $6 w/potatoes, toast and 3 egg omelet. Please try this and you won't be disappointed.
