The Montgomery Street Cafe is a "no frills gem" that seems like has been around forever (and that's a good thing). This cozy cafe specializes in excellent, "working folk" breakfast and lunch, like you grandma used to make (and that's a good thing too). Friendliest service in town. Check out the wall mural and photos of famous characters from the... More

This precious place is full of regulars! Always a good sign...often there is a short wait, but it is worth it. You can count on everything being just right! Even beautiful poached eggs! You won't find a better spot for breakfast in the "cultural district ".

Loved our old-fashioned breakfast... just good plain food. Fried eggs, delicious bacon, hash browns and homemade biscuits and gravy...what is not to like?! Step back in time and enjoy!

All that for like $5.00 a plate!!! Eggs were cooked to my specification along with how I like my hash browns. Biscuits and gravy were decent definitely... More

Stopped for a quick breakfast and the ambiance puts you back in the 60's. Small restaurant, but great food. Friendly staff, great walk decorations and just a plain and simple breakfast like Mom would make. But Mom never made biscuits this good.

It's a hole in the wall cafe. Established 1949 and has still got some of the original decor. Food was excellent, great value, friendly servers. I think we have found a new breakfast restaurant! It's nit far from he cultural district of Ft Worth. Corner of Montgomery and Dexter. Don't blink you will miss it!

I had lunch with a friend. Food was ok. We had soup and salad. The soup was much better than the salad. Wish I had just gotten a bowl of soup. Service was ok. It was quiet so we could talk in a normal voice. Probably won't go back. Had better food for certain. Place smells old but not sure... More

For the "bottomless cup of coffee" test and throw in the Vintage Diner Experience...you have found THE PLACE. You will enjoy the cozy atmosphere; the huge 1950's hand painted mural, framed pictures of outlaws and heroes and yes, even the diner bar that you may sit and eat your homemade biscuits. The location is within walking distance of Will Rogers... More

This little hole-in-the-wall cafe near the cultural district of Ft. Worth has great down home, country dishes. It's a small place and sometimes you have to wait to get a table, but it is worth it. I think it has the best Chicken Fried Steak in town and great vegetables to choose from that taste like my grandmother cooked them.... More

Quick and delicious breakfast and they know our names when we walk in. I love the ability to add sliced tomatoes to breakfast for .75 cents as well. Service with a smile and strong coffee
