THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cafe Monet Restaurant Review: A charming tea house-coffee shop in old town Kensington, Café Monet is noted for its potent coffees, ladylike sandwiches, homemade soups, fresh pastries and breads, and its unusual salads. It's also a popular stop-off for the locals who must enjoy a setting that is reminiscent of a bygone era in America. Management has painted cheery, bright walls and table tops with scenes of France, plus it has filled corner cupboards with pottery and hand-packed preserves, and hung for-sale paintings on the wall. Complimentary issues of the daily newspaper and prompt counter service beckon patrons to relax over a casual meal---except, of course, for those who commute to the city. They can grab some fresh pastry and hot coffee, and speed on their way. Otherwise, plan to meet your pals for a cozy lunchtime chat or midmorning coffee break.
