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 Also Have Limited Indoor Seating

We welcome our guests on a walk-up basis.

Please join us for our outstanding beer selection and our award winning food.

we are trying to keep our beloved Monk's Family of Coworkers gainfully employed.

We really appreciate our long-time guests and we love to welcome new guests...and we really can't wait until things get back to something resembling the pre-pandemic days. Thank you for your understanding for our need to implement so many rules.

Your continued support throughout this ever-changing situation means so much to us.  THANK YOU!

We love you guys.
