The cafe’s name is from the dictionary definition of monument:
“A lasting evidence, tribute, reminder or enduring example of someone or something notable or great”
The Cafe is a tribute to the now vanished roadside cafes of Texas and the families who operated them, serving simple but satisfying food and functioning as unofficial community centers for the small towns in which they were located.
