Monty's is a small retro style restaurant with a parlor feel. They have a bunch of menu items including breakfast all day. Milkshakes are large, so splitting one is the way to go.

This place is extremely busy on the weekends -- the wait is around 15-20 minutes usually. But the food is well worth it! I got the breakfast sandwich and then, stuffed as I was, still managed to order dessert. Both were amazing. Would recommend to...More
