This was our first time at Cafe Monte and it was great! We came in for a late breakfast and the food and service was excellent. I had the chicken and wild mushroom crepes, my mom and her husband had omelettes, and we all loved our food. We are looking forward to coming back soon!

Highly recommend. Enjoyed a sumptuous petit dejeuner at Cafe Monte for a special occasion. Every staff member did the little extras to make for a memorable celebration and excellent dining experience. Ambience was perfect. Service was impeccable - prompt but friendly and not rushed. The Bellinis did the trick. Beignets, Brie en croute and mains were delicious. Kendra was a standout, and we were raving about her after we left. Will definitely be back!!

It's been tricky to get a reservation at our favorite Café Monte recently so we were thrilled to be able to get in this weekend. The meal was as delicious as ever and the service, as always, was perfect. Monte is one of the few places that I could be happy eating anything on the menu which makes it hard to choose!

We had a wonderful dinner at the Cafe. We thoroughly enjoyed the salmon, trout, short rib and beef crepe. We celebrated our sons birthday and our meal was perfect for the occasion. We will definitely be back to try other entrees.

Food was delicious and service was great. Went on a weekday morning so I suspect it was quieter than it is at other times. Would definitely go back!

Food was delicious as always! A little frustrated that we had to wait so long (30 minutes) for an outdoor table when we had a reservation for outside and noted a birthday celebration. Made for a very late night for a Tuesday.

Very good food for a fair price. It is not a typical French restaurant. It is more bistro style. The food quality was great and the service was great, but the outdoor seating was the only slightly negative experience. It is like sitting on a parking lot and it is a little noisy due to be close to main street (Fairview). It was fair price for the food quality that was offered. I food go again without thinking twice about it.

The food was absolutely amazing! I had the lobster and crab crepes, my partner had the duck confit, and we got a free slice of chocolate raspberry mousse cake for his birthday. The drinks were also delicious, and the service was excellent. We will definitely be returning soon.

Cafe Monte was perfect for our group of 6 that became 7 at the last minute, for a meal in a two-hour break between meetings. Everyone enjoyed the food immensely and the ambiance is delightful. We will certainly be going there again!

I have visited Cafe Monte many times through the years and they NEVER disappoint. The food is always 5-star and the service outstanding. You haven't even jacked up prices the way some other restaurants. The Chicken and Mushroom Crepe is by far my favorite.

Really great meal and excellent server. Only complaint was it was SUPER noisy. One of our guests found it difficult to hear and was unable to participate in conversation easily.

Also the seats are not the most comfortable. Have been coming to CM for years, and they never seem to upgrade the seating.

Suggestion: Change up the menu! Really like what you have, but in all the years we've been coming, it never changes!
