THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cafe Monti Restaurant Review

: Alexandria’s big culinary secret, CafĂ© Monti, looks about as appealing as a used-car lot, but don’t let looks deceive you. Inside its humble exterior lies a kitchen worthy of its Austro-Hungarian roots and a chef who can create fabulous strudels and goulashes (both soup and stew) and do all this at cut-rate prices. You won’t believe your eyes when you assess the refrigerator case crammed with elegant pastries such as profiteroles, tiramisu, and apple strudel; you also won’t believe the rather zany menu that spans two European countries and includes pizza, pasta, wienerschnitzel and Italian subs.
