Hoffstot’s Cafe Monaco is located in Oakmont, Pennsylvania, only fourteen miles northeast of downtown Pittsburgh.

We’ve been around for over 40 years, and are a favorite destination of wonderful loyal customers not just in Oakmont, but across the city and from out of town.

Danny Monaco

Brothers Dan and Tom Monaco started Hoffstot's in 1971 as a place to feature their Italian grandmother's delicious recipes.


JT Waters loves the restaurant life and has been involved in restaurant management for decades. He was a welcome addition to our staff of friendly faces.


The Monaco family purchased “Hoffstot’s” in 1971 keeping its original name and very small establishment. When the bank beside Hoffstot’s closed they bought the building and opened another smaller restaurant named “Cafe Monaco” which boasted a different menu and dining atmosphere.

In 1990 they renovated both restaurants creating a new look, larger seating capacity, larger bar area, a new menu & changed the name to “Hoffstot’s Cafe Monaco”. Dan and Tom Monaco have owned and operated Hoffstot’s for 42 years and it has become landmark restaurant in Oakmont. They are very much “hands on” owners and many of the employees have been here for 15-20 years. Meet some of them below, and say Hi next time you see them!

  • Thank you all for making our family reunion a success on Sunday! Everyone raved about the food and especially the salads, orzo pasta dis, and fruits. The edible flowers were a great idea to accent the Aloha motif. The best part was not having to worry about cooking so that we could spend time visiting with family. We appreciate your efforts and making it easy for us.
