We have eaten at Cafe Monte several times and the the food and service have always been good. On our must recent visit, however, the shrimp and artichoke crepes and the lobster and crabmeat crepes were actively disgusting. At least the tomato bisque soup and the desserts were good. Our waitress also seemed to be having a bad day and was sometimes friendly and sometimes hostile and dismissive. We were especially disappointed because we were entertaining guests from out of town.

As always, food was wonderful but service was terrible. Sat down outside, ordered drinks and once our drinks came we ordered breakfast. 3 tables sat down after we had ordered. All 3 tables got all of their food before us. We did not get water refills until our food came. I had to go all the way inside and ask our server why food hadn’t come out yet. He did discount our meal 15% and the manager also apologized for the wait. Overall, when I come to Cafe Monte I’ve learned to expect bad service. If a similar restaurant opened with better service I would certainly choose to go there instead.

We went for Easter Brunch & knew it would be a busy day for dining. We were seated promptly & ordered our food. Our waiter wasn’t very attentive & we had to flag him down if we needed anything. We did wait about 40 min for our food. My mother had a Belgium waffle & fresh fruit. My husband & I ordered crepes (1 shrimp & artichoke & the other lobster & crab). The food was good & served hot.

My beef Wellington was frozen in the middle and our waitress forgot our dessert order. My husband ordered the risotto and it was some of the best risotto we ever had.

We were in for breakfast on Sat (arty of 3). Although this is a cafe they didn’t know basic coffee drinks. They brought my daughter a chai latte but she dislikes coffee and took it up to the bar to ask if they had added coffee and they said yes so she explained how to make a chai latte so they could remake it for her.
On to the food- my daughter ordered crepes, 1 Nutella and 1 banana. They brought it out all as sides, she had to “make” them herself. Not ideal and messy. I ordered quiche and it was just ok. Husband ordered a BLT. He said it was fine but SMALL. The bread was barely 3 inches long.
We were really excited to try Cafe Monte, the location is so pretty and the cafe itself is very cute inside. We’d definitely have been back had it been worthwhile. Such a huge bummer.

Javier. Great server. Being vegan, it can be a crap shoot whether you get an awesome meal or something barely edible. Javier has been our server last 2 visits and he has taken care to make certain the vegan option was delicious, and even LOOKED delicious.

We always look forward to dining at Cafe Monte. We usually expect quality and consistency whenever we dine with them but was dissapointed this time. Food quality was not up to standard. We had 2 orders of the quiche, which turned out terrible. One was completely burned and the other was cold and soggy in the middle. We were extremely dissapointed!
