Pretty poor food. Asked for a simple scrambled eggs & crispy bacon. What I got was egg pie! The scrambled eggs were stacked in a cylindrical shape like a pie. They were so overcooked they happily stood up on their own. They seemed microwaved. The...bacon was sloppy and wet - not crispy. I did not eat it. They assured me the egg was not microwaved and that they simply cook it in a dish. But tbh this is then NOT scrambled eggs. In fairness to them, they did not attempt to charge me for the uneaten food. The restaurant is clean & tidy in a nice part of town and the coffee was nice.More

Had breakfast here recently and it was very good. Great choice and fast, friendly service. The place was very clean and was obviously a popular choice for breakfast. Good value for money. Our waitress was lovely too. Would recommend.

Utterly delicious breakfast and brunch options are available here, and hands-down they offer the tastiest eggs florentine anywhere! They also service yummy lunches with jacket potatoes as big as your head and the most perfect chevre salaf. \they never scrimp on quality or portion sizes....You will always find seasonal, tasty and well-presented fare in a modern and pretty setting in the heart of Windsor with the friendlist staff. My kids adore their pancakes and milkshakes too! I highly recommend a visit. It's one of our favourites.More

This is the undisputed #1 place for breakfast. The staff are always smiling despite being continuously packed out due to their success. One lady in particular is very personable. Their fry ups hit the spot, although I'm partial to a simple scrambled eggs with salmon....They have Sunday mornings down to a fine art.More

We called into day for a short snack at lunchtime and chose the chicken and mushroom soup. It was homemade and fantastic. Followed by a coffee. Excellent food, superb service and premises very clean. Highly recommend.

We had an overnight stay in Windsor without a breakfast thrown in so decided to wander down Peascod Street, which is pretty much the main street through the town, to see what took our fancy. We weren't up particularly early and I recognised some of...the recommended establishments that I had researched but none struck us as that appealing. When we reached the end of Peascod we thought we'd just keep going straight on for a bit longer and this is when we happened upon Monty's! It was the vibe that appealed to us - it had a hustle and bustle about it without being too busy - gave us a feel that this was where the locals came, which is always a good sign to me. Anyway, the service was friendly, the coffee was hot and delicious and we enjoyed one of the best Eggs Benedict that we have had in a long time. Would thoroughly recommend taking a longer walk to seek out Monty's Cafe to anyone!More

My favourite place for breakfast in Windsor / the staff are always so lovely and kind, they were really busy today and the lovely lady always does her best. The food is fab and it’s just a lush little cafe!

Friendly cafe offering good, well priced coffees (and also a decent size large coffee) + a great £5 deal for breakfast roll/panini and coffee. Quick service and really nice staff. As it is off the beaten track it is a lot quieter than the high...street coffee shops mobbed by tourists.More

We visited in early afternoon and used their takeaway service. The prices seemed very reasonable considering it is in the centre of Windsor. We ordered two panini’s and chips- the chicken tikka panini was bland and seemed to have basic supermarket filling (more like coronation...chicken) but the brie and bacon was lovely. Chips were slightly soggy. Excellent coffee. Staff were not wearing face masks.More

We got in and we’re shown to a very small table. Incredibly loud and my partner & I couldn’t hear each other even from a short distance. Took a long time to be served, even after catching the attention of a waitress twice. Tables that...came in after us were served before we were. I suggested we left but the partner was hungry. Food is incredibly basic. I should think the staff do a Tesco run in the mornings to pick up Hovis sliced bread, & McCain oven chips. My ham, egg & chips consisted of damp ham which came straight from a packet, one slice of bread and some rather sorry looking eggs. I was expecting some properly fried chips but they were 100% oven chips. I should have listened to the reviews. How hard can it be to serve some decent bread and better quality ingredients? I’m struggling to understand how this place is so busy when all they serve is the basics. But if that’s what you like then fair enough.More

Street parking opposite if you can get in. As with most of Windsor it gets very busy and will depend on when you go.
