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. My daughter had French toast and liked it a lot. All plates were clean at the end of the meal so that should tell you... More

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.

Some of our family went to lunch at the Monrovian Family Restaurant. There were 6 or 8 of us. The service was good and the food was "unremarkable". Edible but unremarkable. Maybe you need to add ketchup?

This is where you go when you just want to get food and you don't really care how good it is. Where everyone in your party can have something they want. Where you get quantity over quality.

My husband and I were surprised at how nice the food was prepared. We have only eaten breakfast here. I like the benedicts and he likes the egg dishes. They taste like homemade. I don't quite like the pancakes because they are not the fluffy type that I prefer. All in all, we definitely come here when we want an... More
