    Monk's Cafe: Beer, Beer, Beer

    Great brew-pub with an excellent choice of beers, ales, lambics, etc. with tasty food to boot. Traditional looking inside, dark, cosy and pub-like.

    Favorite Dish: Pommes Frites: Yukon gold fries with a dipping sauce of bourbon-mayonnaise.

    The mussels are very good too, and I'm not even fond of mussels!

    Warm, comfortable back room, knowledgable wait staff (knew every beer on the menu and could make recommendations). Even people who don't like beer with love it! Cozy and not too loud.

    Favorite Dish: Mussels, mussels, mussels. All prepared in beer, but with a variety of garlics, tomatoes...all are great.
