Found this place on Trip Advisor and it didn't disappoint. Plenty of seating with very friendly staff. If you leave hungry, it's your fault. Food was excellent. Try their grits, even if it's not your favorite. Their jam is homemade and very good.

I am not complaining about the food! It was great and served promptly! I looked at the ticket and immediately saw three teas when we only had one tea. The situation only went downhill. We got a ticket with the incorrect items three more times! Then we ordered two different kinds of pie to go: one chocolate and one key... More

A wonderful place if you can't decide what you're having because the menu is varied with lots of locally made desserts, signature plates such as King Ranch Chicken and local beer. Highly professional and personable wait staff.

My husband and l drove from Killeen to eat here because of the great reviews, including that of Diners Drive-Ins & Dives and Matthew McConaughty. This place was dirty. I ordered eggs benedict and my husband ordered fried chicken with mashed potatoes. I'm not sure how you can screw up cooking these orders so bad. They both tasted like they... More

A lot of good cooking goes on at the Monument Cafe, but the building and retro design are worth the visit even if you only order the biscuits! If in Killeen this is a must stop!

My brother in law insisted we try this place because of the Diner, Drive Ins, and Dives show that highlighted this place. First off the table was sticky which I hate. I was really wanting a cinnamon roll but they were out (which is understandable if they're that good). The burger I had was decent...bun was really good and the... More

Always been a big fan of their breakfast. Simple and reasonably Southern. The dinners are also good. Definitely a place the locals like going to.

Took my sister and brother-in-law for their first visit here and was so proud that they thoroughly enjoyed their dinner and want to come back. This restaurant grows some of their own produce and herbal seasonings. Food is great and service was awesome.

This is a cool, classic restaurant that every town wishes they had. The building is awesome (and huge) and it was a must see on our trip. I had higher hopes for the food and service. We visited on a Monday night and it was pretty slow so that may have contributed to the lackluster service. It wasn't terrible but... More
