Monki in The Beltline

Our first breakfast club located in Calgary’s beltline!

Monki Breakfast Club & Bistro Beltline

Our original Beltline breakfast club is located along the southwest corner of Downtown Calgary on 10th Ave SW right across from Community Natural Foods. Upon coming here, you can enjoy a hearty breakfast in one of Calgary’s oldest heritage buildings! The building’s unique red brick character and artsy surrounds will have you feeling warm & right at home. We are excited to share our building with the Banbury Lane Design Center, one of Calgary’s premier home hardware boutiques. 

Having been consistently voted the best neighbourhood in Calgary, the Beltline hub boasts numerous artisan boutiques, specialist local supermarkets as well as trendy cafes, bars & restaurants. In addition, the community is just a few blocks away from the trendy Kensington district located just across the Bow River.


Despite being at the periphery of downtown Calgary, parking is surprisingly easy to find here! Public parking is available throughout 10th avenue and 12 street SW at modest rates of $1.50 per hour on weekdays and just $0.50 per hour on Saturdays! Furthermore, unrestricted FREE parking is available just a few blocks away on 14th avenue SW. 

If you didn’t know, we have bike racks located right in front of our establishment on 10th Avenue SW! Monki loves cyclists! 

Planning Your Brunch Visit

Our Beltline-Calgary breakfast club was showcased on Food Network Canada’s Big Food Bucket List on Season 1 Episode 8 ‘For the Love of Brunch’. Being small albeit incredibly cozy, the breakfast club does tend to have a wait on the weekends. However, you can skip the wait & ‘Get in Line’ virtually on your phone. We will then simply notify you on when to make your way! We aren’t accepting reservations right now due to our limited seating but we do have our large,spacious&kid friendly Inglewood location!

Be it a weekend family outing or a quick catchup before shopping, a fulfilling brunch at our iconic Beltline spot is sure to make your day better!

Coffee and food were delicious. Service was friendly and cheerful.
Nice ambiance, good coffee, food was not bad too. Kinda disappointed by menu options, everything looked pretty much same, sweet waffles and eggs with potatoes.
Really great food at a reasonable price. Service is great, had the perogies and they were delicious.

We went to Monki and were delighted with the quality of the food and the service. It was the first day of the season for the patio, and it filled up quickly. Our server, Olivia, did a fantastic job handling the surge of people and created a great atmosphere for everyone. She was knowledgeable and friendly.The food is consistently incredible here, so if you haven't tried it yet, now is the time. Absolutely 10 out of 10.

Monki bistro was very accomodating to our party of 4 adults and 2 kids(5 and 3yo).They don't do reservations, but do wait lists day of, so, being a larger size party, we called it in. Unfortunately, the other couple we were with were involved in a small collision and were about 20 mins late. Monki was still very patient with us despite this.The food was fantastic. The reverse French toast was amazing. If you have a bit of a sweet tooth, this is perfect! The others ordered the brisket hash, and they said it was delicious.
Oliver Gaythorpe
Very good food and attentative service, would recommend

Amazing experience and consistently good service!
If your ever having trouble deciding between another breakfast/brunch spot and Monki you better be choosing Monki. I’ve had some really great breakfast at restaurants all across Canada, and Monki by far has become my #1 spot.

We are new to Calgary and are always exploring new places to eat. We had heard so much about Monki and decided to brunch there randomly on a late Saturday morning. We joined the waitlist online which was super convenient rather than waiting at the venue in the cold. Once there the place didn't disappoint us, it was small but cozy. We ordered the Chorizo poutine and Classic French toast. Both were lip-smackingly good and quite filling. Definitely returning to try other items on the menu!
Justin Laatsch
Big thanks to Olivia!

Loved it overall. But I certainly wouldn’t mind to have more options on the menu with other protein/meat, besides just eggs and briskets.

Mijail Rojas Carvajal
It's a really nice place to have breakfast or brunch. I have had breakfast at other similar places, and the price-for-quality ratio here is really up there. I had a Huevos Rancheros, and it was really good. A rich balanced flavor, great textures, and a great combination of "traditional" and non-traditional ingredients. Benedict eggs were well made. The coffee was also a good surprise. It's better if you let them know in advance you're going since the place is rather small. It's cozy though. Me and my wife just walked in and they found us a table right away, but there were some people wanting to get in when we were heading out. The service was really nice and despite the place was full, the food arrived fast and hot. Great place.
Magally Otarola
The place is very good and gets very crowded. The french toast was really good 👍
Stacey Parker
Best brunch in Calgary!
Ryan Hofos
Our server was wonderful but got almost zero help. Great job!
