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

Southern breakfast for sure! Hot links, homemade ground sausage, fluffy biscuits. What more could you ask for? Would every week if my waist could afford it!

The food here is delicious! I especially like the chicken and dumplings and the chicken pot pie! In addition to the delicious food, the service is always impeccable! They really make you feel like family.

Great neighborhood cafe, in a small strip center. Mostly locals having breakfast and meeting for coffee. Great biscuits and gravy and the patty sausage cant be beat.

Thank Bob B
