Café Monk

Open from 7:30 a.m. weekdays and until 11 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday, Café Monk is a hybrid café, restaurant and apéritif bar. By day, the same generous “all-day brunch” menu is served as at Well: classic breakfast plate, breakfast sandwich, breakfast poutine, shakshouka, huevos rancheros, and, of course, avocado toast. Their version, the El Pablo, is an open-faced sandwich with avocado, tomato, fried chicken, cheese, and egg. Despite the closure of Well, you can still enjoy the El Pablo at Café Monk (yeah!).
