Great as usual.
I love dining at Cafe Monte; food is excellent; service excellent and ambiance perfect.
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.
Family dinner with children
Delicious mussels and frites and lobster crepes. Great looking desserts, especially the fondue with fruit at the next table. Helpful, cheerful service enhanced our visit. Warm, happy room.
We have always been pleased with the food and the service at Cafe Monte.

One of my favorites. Always take guest from out of town here for lunch or dinner. Never disappointed! Excellent service and delicious food!
Outstanding atmosphere. Sunday brunch was fabulous. My steak and eggs were cooked perfectly. Highly recommend.
Great spot for breakfast with friends. Unusually noisy, though.
Happy to have gone back for a way better experience than we had for dinner. Brunch service was amazing, our server was Javier. Food was spectacular, ambience was great.
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.
This was aBD lunch with a friend. We both had lobster salad with champagne vinegaret dressing. The salad was fresh and the lobster tender!! Atmosphere and service were excellent!!
Our waiter Shawn was fabulous! The food was amazing. The best swordfish I have ever eaten. Def going back

Amazing food and service. We had a wonderful evening. Everything was delicious. They really go above and beyond. We will be back!!
This place never disappoints! I love their salads and their chicken salad croissant is fantastic.
Cafe Monte is an excellent destination for a date. It’s always been a wonderful experience.
We love Lisa as our server. Lunch was delicious. It felt festive.
Charming space with a lovely menu- the begniets were unbelievable.
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!
Be prepared to wait if no reservation. Be prepared to wait for your food because it's so busy. The food is excellent!
The blackened swordfish was bursting with flavor. Wow! Always a great meal at Cafe Monte.
We have been to Cafe Monte many times and have never been disappointed with either the food or service.
Brought some old friends for their first time at Cafe Monte. They loved it too. Great service, food and atmosphere
Especially attentive server assisted me with my mom. Food was very tasty as was the homemade ice cream!
Great location for a birthday celebration with family. The restaurant was accommodating for handicap access. Even provided a fun birthday sweet treat to cap off the meal. We will be back!
