The beer selection is incomparable - for beer snobs and pleebs (like me.) I love trying new things and the staff are incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to what's on top and up in bottles. There is always something to learn and experience when it comes to drinks at Monk's. I will also say one of my fondest Monk's memories was getting mussels with my client, who took my team out as a holiday time celebration. That was an epic night, where I felt like we ate and drank the night away, no concept of time, and the staff made it special and fun because right away, they treat you like family. The mussels ARE amazing, and it's easy to get lost in the menu and specials. I have had some meals since, mostly all "hit," but a few "misses," but I will say the place does a great job overall, especially for having incredible volume for the small space and limited staff. They make it look good!
The beer menu is out of this world, our thumbs got tired from scrolling on our phones to view it. We ordered the fries that came with "world famous" bourbon mayo. They were fantastic and we ate every last crumb! Highly recommend:)
Monk's Cafe has been on my list for years and I finally visited this month. My boyfriend and I waited about 20 mins for an outdoor table on a Thursday night. Duck salad sandwich was my favorite. The Ghent mussels were not as amazing as I expected, but still great, and the pommes frites were perfect. Finally, loved the apricot almond galette for dessert. My boyfriend also liked his beer a lot (house sour). Service was wonderful/waiter Gabriela was very friendly. 4.5 stars.
