NOW OPEN FOR INDOOR AND OUTDOOR DINING

UPDATE April 20, 2021:

Monk's is now OPEN for indoor dining, from Wednesday through Sunday, Noon to 10pm. We have very few indoor tables, socially distanced and/or divided by Plexiglas barrier. We welcome all of our guests on a walk-in basis. 

Our sidewalk cafe is now OPEN during fair weather, from Wednesday through Sunday, Noon to 10pm.  Construction noise and vehicles from the seven-story tower being built next door can sometimes interfere with our outdoor dining hours, please bear with us. 

Delivery and takeout are both available Wednesday through Sunday, from Noon to 10pm.  Check out the delivery and takeout food and beer menu, here.  Please call to order, 215-545-7005.  Monk's is not available via any third-party ordering apps or services.  

We look forward to reconnecting with all of you!  Wear your mask, get vaxxed, and let's have some fun once again. 

 

OPEN  FOR TAKEAWAY & DELIVERY FOOD AND BEER 

UPDATE April 1, 2021:

1. As of Thursday, April 1, we are now open for Takeaway & Delivery. That's right – Delivery from Monk's Café! 

Click HERE for our Takeaway & Delivery menu of food and beer. Takeaway & Delivery hours are Thursday through Sunday, from Noon-10pm,  and the delivery area is river to river, Fairmount Ave to Tasker St. Please CALL 215-545-7005 to order. Monk's Café's menu is not available through any third party sites. Our partner Relay Delivery  brings food & beer right to your door for a flat delivery fee of $5.50.

2. We will reopen our Sidewalk Cafe and Streetery as soon as the weather cooperates. We are unable to construct an outdoor shelter because of all the dirt, noise, traffic and mayhem created by the condo construction going on next door to Monk's. They are nearly finished with the facade and will be transitioning to all indoor work in the next month or two.

3. We are in the midst of installing a state-of-the-art HVAC system that has MERV-13 filtration to capture particulate matter and UV-C Light that kills viruses. One unit for each of our three dining rooms. That is already way beyond what the Philadelphia Department of Health, the CDC and NIOSH recommend, but we will also add floor HEPA filters with additional UV-C Lights that will provide what we feel is a safe environment for our coworkers and guests. We are hoping to welcome guests back for indoor dining within a couple of weeks. Details will follow soon. Please feel free to call us for updates!

We love you and will miss seeing all of you.  We look forward to welcoming our amazing guests back when we reopen.

We will still be offering a couple of Very Special Beer Sales since we have decided to share much of our rare inventory with our loyal guests. 

Please stay safe in these times.

Tom Peters & Bernadette Roe, proprietors

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.)
