Cafe Monte… Oh… la… la!

This Saturday we decided to go to a restaurant that is very near and dear to our heart’s…  which I have yet to blog about (cue shock here) I’ve been there at least a dozen times.

Cafe Monte’s is located in the South Park area in Charlotte, NC but the moment you walk through the front door you feel like you’re really in Paris where the great cafes Fouquet’s,  Les Deux Magots or Cafe de Flore.

Gave the desserts a quick look before...

The interior is cozy, in the case our table it might have been a little ‘too cozy’ once the restaraunt started to fill up… but I was still able to enjoy the art of ‘people watching’.

We gave the menu a look over. I decided to break away from my usual (goat cheese pizza with argula and wild mushrooms)
