BOB Awards Winner's Guide

Café Monte

  • Food


The image of a fat chef with a big smile watches over the bright yellow dining room, setting the tone for this French-inspired bistro. The menu holds all of brunch’s best, from classics including eggs Benedict and crêpes, to heartier fare, such as steak frites. A bakery counter out front suits those looking for coffee and a croissant, but the better way to dine here is to sit, sip, and dine, just as the French would do, and take your time.
