Pot Luck is exactly what you get when you dine at Pot Luck. They have a menu you can order from but for lunch it 's pot luck. A meat and two vegetables with roll or cornbread. Breakfast is the best bacon,sausage,grits,biscuits, you get the drill. Try to get Rhonda Carrier as your waitress, she is the greatest.

Looking for a place sort of like the friendliness of the old CHEERS tv show (but without the bar); this is it; great ownership, super duper waitresses and just overall nice folks; from daily specials (meat + veggies), to BLT, to burgers, and more; it would be hard to beat this place; A perfect place for breakfast or lunch.......or both;...

Enjoyed a breakfast at the cafe. Plenty of locals inside! Breakfast is a typical menu..for lunch: they have lunch specials on the board...vegetables and a meat. The prices are really good & worth a visit. Also, hamburgers, hot dogs... We would like to try lunch on our next visit. Parking may be hard in front, but check the parking on... More

Breakfast here is a treat. This is a small community meeting spot and there is no stuffy atmosphere. I felt welcomed the first time I walked in. Now, I am greeted by name every time I come in and the coffee is hot and very good.

If you're looking for where the locals in Monroe do breakfast you've found it. Off the main drag but really close to the square. Homemade biscuits, killer sausage and eggs, grits and pancakes just to name a few!!

Love this place for an old school breakfast. The sausage patties are tasty and a bit spicy. Reminds me of good ole home cooking. Nice pancakes, too.

Pot Luck Cafe is a taste of old Monroe. Good breakfast and lunch selections. Located just one street east of main street Monroe (Broad Street). Local gather to chew the fat and to "solve the problems of the world".

This is exactly the kind of local place I look for on any trip! Small, downtown location, back behind the main strip through Monroe, with nice friendly people, good service and really good food. While I wasn't up for it today, I will be back and plan to try "The Dawg Pile" for breakfast. Check it out on their menu... More
