Monk's Cafe one of the beer meccas of the world. After seeing the ad in BA mag so long for this place I had to go see it for myself. The space is bit tight but has 2 bars, one in the front and one in the back. I have been here twice and both times went for the back bar because it always seems to be less crowded. The draft selection is a really nice mix of rare Belgian beers and quality domestic brews. I have seen Russian River beers on tap both times I have been here so that alone makes this place awesome in my book. The food is well done and features a fair amount of vegetarian items for those that choose that diet. Anyone who subscribes to BA, goes on this site, or enjoys good beer has to go to Monks cafe at least once.
Cheers

Monks needs to be on your must visit list if you are visiting Philly and love craft beer. The place is small but a wonderful atmosphere and great service. My glass was empty very little and wish I would have had to time to go back during my trip.

Food was not to my taste, they only offer a veggie cheese steak to give you an idea.

But the beer atmosphere and service more than makes up for the food.

If you skip this one you are making a big mistake folks.
