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 23 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, serve 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).


NOON until 10PM Tuesday through Sunday at our Sidewalk Café and "Streetery" and for Curbside Pickup



We serve our full menu until 1AM nightly – unless there is a pandemic.

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.
