I love Belgian beer and they have a great selection on tap. Someone told me that Monk's is rated as one of the Top 5 places in the World to have a beer. I think the rating was from a Beer Magazine. I have to agree. You feel like you are stepping into another country when you arrive. The Bar is small and crowded and you do have to be aggressive to get a beer and wait for a table. My wife and I were able to meander back to the backroom bar and find a corner and then eventually seats. Just a fun atmosphere with awesome beer.
We had had dinner so the only thing I ordered were the mussels becuase I had to try them and they were excellent.
I will go out of my way to get back to Monk's Cafe whenever I am near Philly. Highly recommend but becuase the place is so busy you have to be aggressive and the servers are swamped and this is no slow-paced Cheers type bar.
