This is an iconic breakfast place. Food is always great, the service is fast. This is a place where no wait staff goes anywhere without a pot of coffee. Price is good too.

Awesome customer service given by Alisha and Candace. Second time here. Simple breakfast: waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage and grits. My husband had the same except for the grits, he had hashbrowns. Tastes like home cooking. The atmosphere is very nice and so are the other...customers. We have driven by so many times and never noticed and we have lived here for years. We'll let you know about lunch and dinner in the future. This is our place for breakfast!More

Our typical Texas breakfast of eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy was very good. The coffee was better than most café coffee. I loved the atmosphere. A tiny restaurant that is easy to overlook and a tad difficult to locate. However, it was well worth the...effort to have breakfast at this café which leaves the impression that it has not changed in a great many years. There are only 6 tables and 5 or 6 booths. It is a small area with an old fashion counter with stools. We were there at an off time and most likely it is crowded at the rush times. I was a bit nostalgic as my Grandfather spent most of his life in the Ft Worth area and I have no doubt he most likely visited this cafe and it probably looks the same as it did then. He has been gone over 40 years. I'm happy to have finally found this bit of Fort Worth history with good food.More

Food is excellent. I love the sausage patties and biscuits. It is a small place and you sometimes have to wait. But the food and the service make waiting worthwhile.

lattig-derik says don't let the construction sway your decision to come here, the food still rocks and will keep you full all day.

Stopped by on the way home and was treated to a step back in time where you get good food, good service and at a good price. The ambiance is just icing on the cake. Be sure and check out the refrigerator behind the counter.

Authentic 50's décor that's likely been here since then. Good value, nothing original about the food but the place is packed on weekends. Limited parking. This place proves you don't have to spend a fortune on the facility to do good business.

This iconic little cafe in West Fort Worth has been around forever and most of the patrons are regulars. If you like small, family owned and run holes-in-the-wall, you'll like this one. Crossing the threshold is like going back in time, no kidding. The Montgomery...Street Cafe is probably my favorite breakfast spot among the holy trinity that includes The Paris Coffee Shop and the West Side Cafe. I haven't had better biscuits and gravy anywhere. Their lunches are very good, too, with meatloaf on Thursdays and chicken fried steak. Enjoy this place while you can as the Dickies Arena is flying up across the street and then the land (owned by Purvis Real Estate Training Institute next door) may become too valuable for its current use.More
