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’.

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!

Love this brunch spot! Their Hollandaise sauce is by far the best in town…. I would drink a glass of it if I could…. Yum.

Sam Williams
Great food with a large variety. It also came out super fast around brunch time on a Wednesday.
This was my very first time coming here with my mom, and I have to say the experience was great! Our waitress was most accommodating. I ordered the Brisket Breakfast Tacos with Birria and it was fantastic! The Birria sauce is something I recommend to ask for extra of! My mom ordered the Not-So-Classic Huevos Rancheros, and that too was really tasty! This place is definitely added to my map, I recommend you to try it!
Paul Hanley
Nice breakfast joint. Service and staff both friendly and efficient. Defiantly recommend the spiked earl grey drink as well as the Brisket hash Delicious 😋
Sheri Rhodes
I’ve had this place on my list to try for a while. Glad we jumped on the wait list early from home - 90 minutes wait but once we arrived, we were seated right away. Delicious brunch with fantastic service from Megan, our server who hails from Limerick and was the perfect combination of attentive and not hovering. The Pumpkin Spice French Toast I ordered was delicious. We also had the Bacon Bene (amazing hollandaise with a drizzle of Pesto sauce), Brisket Poutine (the brisket was so good), and Monki Perogies (yum!). We will be back!
Kham Ma
Great service, great food. Very reasonable prices.

Cute brunch place...its quite small so expect long queues and wait times. We waited for about 20mins to get in. I had the fall french toast and it was amazing! My favorite part were the apple slices inside, a perfect blend of maple syrup, cinnamon and caramel. Did not need the white chocolate though! I hope this item stays on the menu long term because the other french toast options are too sweet.
Ben Lutzko
This place is great! The neo quaint aesthetic is stunning and cozy. Our server Alex not only matched the aesthetic but provided irrefutably excellent service to matching this warm restaurant’s warm vibe. Each chef and server seemed to have their own unique flair and style enhancing the homey feel of this spot. The food is very rich across all menu items, but overall quite tasty. Definitely try this place out

Service was great - Alex was wonderful!
Erin Fidler
We both quite enjoyed our breakfast poutines and the banana coffee was worth the wait until 9 am (alcoholic). Nice spicing and flavouring in the food and good portions. We will definitely be back to try some more items off the menu that we didn’t have room for this time.
Jessica Tetreault
Thanks Myah! We really enjoyed our time.
Halie Ferguson
Myah was amazing. Super sweet and funny and topped up our coffees often. Brisket poutine is also delicious

Favourite go to for brunch is Huevos Rancheros and Monki ranks as one of the best I have had, will definitely be back again. Shout out to our server Maya who was super attentive on a busy Sunday.
Amadeus Starkanvitch
Great food, great drinks, great atmosphere, and great service. Went for brunch with my brother on Saturday and was really impressed with the experience. The menu is very fun and creative - I've tried many of their food options and I very much recommend the Brisket Poutine (which I had on this particular Saturday) as well as the Pancake Tacos. Great coffee too. Our server Alex gave us amazing service, she was very kind, and she made sure our drinks were never empty. I would recommend Monki on Beltline for anyone.
Sophie Symanczyk
Delicious food! Our server Alex was amazing, attentive to my nut allergy and made sure we had a great experience!
I had an incredible dining experience at Monki Bistro thanks to the exceptional service provided by Bianca. The food was not only delicious but also served promptly. Bianca's attentive care ensured that my drinks were never left empty, and her helpfulness truly enhanced the evening. Bianca was so polite and friendly. I highly recommend Monki Bistro, and I look forward to returning soon.

The bacon benedict was a awesome dish to eat. The benedict itself really goes well with the hollandaise that was poured on top of it the hashbrowns is really filing the stomach and the server we were accompanied today is Bianca, she did the phenomenal job of explaining to us the dish that monki offers and did a awesome serving and keeps asking how we were doing. Inside the restaurant was a little cramp because its small but its a vibe definitely come back.
Angeline Croker
I had a brisket poutine today it was very fantastic I really enjoyed it with the hollandaise sauce on top and the hot sauce added some spice to it. Bianca was the server that serve us and she was very lovely and she made our stay very welcomed with the smile and made sure that we got everything we need.

I recently dined here, and ordered the ‘Monki Avocado Toast.’ The sourdough bread, whipped avocado smash, and pickled red onions was rlly flavourful and fresh. it complemented beautifully by the egg and salmon.Bianca was our server, and she ensured everything was perfect from start to finish. She was attentive, made spot-on recommendations, and genuinely seemed to care about our experience :))

I absolutely love the atmosphere, people, and the food of this fine establishment. I had the brisket poutine with a coffee and was not disappointed. It's top notch with the flavors and ingredients they assemble into their dishes.Totally devoured the dish and was satisfied for the rest of the day as a result. Highly recommend trying them out, you'll be hooked.

Myah was a gem!!! The Morning After Breakfast was super generous - 5 slices of thick cut bacon made to perfection, delicious hash & eggs. I liked having the gluten-free bread and accommodations on spices - very friendly and warm service.
Delicious food and a cool atmosphere
