Welcome to Monk's Café

Welcome to Monks

We are in a never ending quest to bring our guests the finest beers in the world. We have been serving world-class beers for over 20 years (Tom has been doing that since 1985). Brewers from around the world stop in on a regular basis because we know how to keep our draught lines clean, push the beer with the right gas mixture, pour the beer in clean glassware, and charge the fairest price in town. Our bottled beer list is well tended and stored under optimum conditions. We offer fine wines by the glass and bottle and offer a full cocktail bar. Our award-winning food is house made daily (except for the bread from Metropolitan Bakery).


We welcome our guests on a walk-in basis. 
We do not have the space to accept reservations or private parties. Please join us for our outstanding beer selection and our award winning food. Our kitchen serves our full menu from 11:30AM until 1AM, which means you have a 13 1/2 hour window to join us for a meal seven days a week. 

We are not currently set up to accept payment online for tickets, gift cards or swag. We will have that capability in the Spring of 2018.

Use our Beer Bible at Monk's as a guide to assist you in selecting a beer to fit your palate. If you think that you don't like beer, then you have never really tasted quality beer. If you are a Bordeaux drinker, we have beer for you. If you like Port, we have beer for you. If you enjoy scotch whiskey, we have beer for you. And if you already love great beer, you have Found beer heaven!
