Monument Café Welcomes Diners on Christmas Day & Partners with Local Nonprofits to Celebrate 10 Years of Community Christmas Dinners

Monument Café Welcomes Diners for a Home-Cooked Meal on Christmas Day:
Café Partners with Local Nonprofits to Celebrate 10 Years of Community Christmas Dinners

’Tis the season to eat, drink and be merry. And, as it does every year, The Monument Café, Georgetown’s charming, classic roadside diner, will be open and serving up traditional holiday favorites with all the fixin’s on Christmas Day. In celebration of the 10th year serving its Community Christmas Dinner, Monument has partnered with area nonprofits Caring Place, Georgetown Independent School District and Meals on Wheels to offer meal vouchers to some of their clients most in need of a wholesome Christmas Day meal.
 The benefiting nonprofits will disburse Monument Café meal vouchers to their clients, who can then redeem the vouchers for a home-cooked meal on Christmas Day during the Monument’s Community Christmas Dinner service, which, as always will be staffed by a crew of loyal and dedicated volunteers. Additionally, hot and fresh Monument holiday meals will be packaged for delivery through the Meals on Wheels program by the café kitchen staff at the Monument Market location.
Monument will be open for business on Christmas Day from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Breakfast will be available until 11 a.m., and guests can choose from a hearty breakfast menu featuring a variety of egg dishes and omelettes cooked with free-range eggs and served with savory sides, and hot-off-the-griddle pancakes, waffles and French toast combinations made to order.
 While Monument’s everyday menu—featuring an assortment of homemade soups and salads, all-natural hamburgers and sandwiches, and mouthwatering entrées and desserts—will be available on Christmas Day, the special holiday menu is guaranteed to offer the best meals of the season. The special holiday menu includes a choice of Turkey and Cornbread Dressing ($12.95) served with Mashed Sweet Potatoes, Green Beans and Fresh Cranberry Sauce; a 10-Ounce Prime Rib served au jus ($21.95) with Roasted New Potatoes, Steamed Asparagus and Horseradish Sauce; Pecan-Crusted Pork Tenderloin ($19.95) served with a Raspberry-Chipotle Sauce, Seasoned Rice and Steamed Asparagus; and Tortilla-Encrusted Tilapia ($18.95) served with Cilantro Cream Sauce and Corn Relish, Seasoned Rice and Steamed Asparagus.
 Of course, it wouldn’t be a Monument Café meal without decadent, homemade dessert. And the special holiday menu includes a variety of tempting choices such as the Monument Chocolate Pie, Coconut Cream Pie, traditional Pecan Pie and Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Chiffon Pie, Key Lime Pie, Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie, good old fashioned Apple Pie, Pumpkin Cake with cream cheese frosting, Kendall’s Chocolate Cake and Texas Sheet Cake with vanilla custard.   
“We look forward to sharing Christmas Day with our customers and serving them the best Monument has to offer,” says owner Rusty Winkstern. “And we truly are grateful that we are able to provide meals to those who need our help this Christmas season.”
