Unlike cinematic love scenes, food can be enjoyed in the company of parents without embarrassment. Dodge future moments of uneasiness with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of homespun fare at Mona's Table in Alameda. Former personal chef to Annie Potts, Mona Personius, owner of the infamous table, now wields her star-serving skills to create fresh breakfast, brunch, and lunch fare. The menu boasts an impressive mix of flavorful sandwiches, soups, and salads, such as the well-spiced asian noodle chicken salad ($8.75). A perennial favorite, the monte cristo ($8.50) resolves the age-old conflict between sweet and savory by forging a comestible coalition of jam, ham, and swiss cheese, served on egg-bathed, sautéed, and sugared rye bread. Shun snooty pies in favor of Mona's quiche of the day, a humble custard creation ($7.95) that stuns taste buds with its rich flavors and impressive knowledge of European history.


The Alameda Sun named Mona's Table the 2007 Fearless Fork Award winner for it's warm eggplant sandwich, panini, bread pudding, beef stew, vanilla-brined pork-loin sandwich, and green-goddess dressing. The East Bay Express also reviewed the restaurant and Yelpers give it a four-star average.

  • A lot of [chef/owner Mona] Personius' dishes are good enough and homey enough to seem like they came from that gray-haired lady's kitchen. They're substantial, glowing with the kind of kitchen fundamentals Personius makes look easy. – John Birdsall, East Bay Express

Customer Reviews

Might want to fix the door on your walk-in refrigerator so the whole building doesn't shake when it slams shut every time an employee goes in or out of it. The place is cute and the food was very good. Just a suggestion: the lemon hollandaise sauce could be a bit less lemony; it was kind of like eating lemon curd with crab. But all in all the food was very good, the menu was intriguing, and the experience was very nice. We'll definitely be back.
