I met a friend here for breakfast this past Friday. I had the light plate, comprising 1 egg, a sausage patty, grits, and toast. Everything was well cooked and attractively presented. Coffee was ok and refills free. Very friendly and attentive staff.

We were in Georgetown for a wedding and chose The Monument based on its rating on Trip Advisor. We were NOT disappointed. We sat at the counter for breakfast and drooled over all of the delicious looking plates coming out of the kitchen. The desserts looked wonderful but we had to pass as they also looked to contain lots of... More

It was ok. Actually expected more from all the hype I had heard but overall, it's a good place to eat and has a quaint atmosphere.

It's been awhile since my last visit, but it is still a great place for lunch. Service is prompt and friendly using the best trained servers I have encountered. Food fresh and well prepared. Was treated to a BLT as a birthday lunch.

The Monument Cafe features a selection of somewhat eclectic selection of southern food. Features on Diners Drive ins and Dives for their chicken casserole, I found it to be more like a chicken tortilla casserole hat my wife makes. Good but not spectacular. I would likely have something more traditional from the menu next time. The fried chicken looked amazing!... More

I ordered a hamburger. The waitress asked if I wanted regular fries or sweet potato fries with it. I said regular. When the bill came I saw they charged me an extra $2.50 for the fries that are normally an accompaniment. My wife had a grilled chicken plate. Surprisingly, it was grilled chicken and mashed potatoes but no vegetables. We... More

You can never go wrong having a meal at this Georgetown institution. Everything I have ever had there was delicious and prices are more than reasonable for what you get. Hint: Try the chicken fried steak and gravy.

Thank Larry P
