Monument is an awesome place to eat. The good is phenomenal! Breakfast is my favorite meal to eat there as they have the best Eggs Benedict and coffee on the planet. There's a bit of a wait on moist occasion but it is def worth...More

As locals, we probably eat here at least 30 times a year. There are reviews here that offer some negative comments, but my opinion is that they are from people who simply didn't like their dining experience. That is fine, but as a regular I...More

We were wanting something different and decided to drive out to Georgetown to give Monument Café a try. The biscuits would have been better if they were cooked a little longer. I am used to biscuits that are a light golden brown.... these seemed slightly...More

We arrived right at the lunch crunch. The waitress took my cell number and told me it would be about 30 minutes. Good thing there is an adjacent store to keep you shopping while you wait. We did make a couple purchases and then the...More

The restaurant opens at 7am on Sunday. You would think that upon arriving at 7:40am and ordering pancakes you would not hear "pancakes will not be ready for 15 minutes." When the food arrived there was an order of waffles. The whipped cream ordered was...More

Not recommended for any meal or takeout. They don't salt anything. Overcooked sides? Check. Lame entrees? Check. Poor service with meth heads for waiters? Check. Check. Check.

This is the go to for breakfast and lunch in Georgetown. Wonderful selections. Highly recommend the club and Reuben sandwiches. Oh, don't forget dessert.

This was a simple diner with great atmosphere. The food was amazing. There were twelve in our group and everyone ordered different things. Everyone raved about the food. They also have a fun market with organic and natural local items. They grow their own veggies...More

I hear the monument no longer serves Breakfast? Is that true? I'm visiting Georgetown in May from the UK. If that's the case it's such a shame, it's my favourite breakfast spot in the States!

Absolutely not true. Breakfast is still served. But.....what has changed is the Monument now closes at 3pm. The evening meal is served at El Monumento 2 blocks down the street. Some of the dinner Monument favorites are being... More

I don't eat desserts even though they look fabulous. I do know restaurants have a great deal of waste in the fresh desserts area and don't begrudge them their cost.
