MONKI

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.

Parking

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!

Had a really tasty meal here. Our business CrossFit Sunalta is right down the street and we were able to come for some tasty food with a personal training client. Best part is they have lots of healthy options and good quality ingredients. We will be back 🙂

Salmon Bene with extra avocado is tasting great! Very nice and friendly staff. It might be a bit noisy with the trains passing by if you take a seat on the patio. Great place for breakfast though!

All right Calgary, if you haven’t checked out this place for breakfast, you’re missing out. I ordered the brisket Benedict and I have to say it was delicious. The brisket is credible and mouthwatering, they’re hashbrowns are second to none with the seasoning. Note you can buy the seasoning and you will want to have it as part of your spice Collection. Meagan who we had the delight to have as our server was beyond amazing. I have to say again if you’ve not checked out this place you are missing out. Small, quaint, great atmosphere and just great people.

Delicious- very kind and accommodating staff. It’s a busy spot so definitely get yourself on the waitlist an hour or two before you plan on showing up on a weekend.

This place is really great. Food was next level and the price was reasonable, especially for the portion, I got the pancake tacos and I could barely finish.My kid got the pancakes, there’s chocolate involved and she could only finish one.They have a great menu for kids with decent variety.The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. I only ticced 36 times (out loud) to my typical 100 plus on occasions when go out.The server was really pro. She was friendly, easy to talk to and seemed very non judgemental.I am a fan.
justin Burden
Always a great experience! Ooo ooo ahh ahhh 🐒
Liam Morrill
Consistently excellent food and service. My usual favorites are the brisket hash or brisket poutine. However, the standout dish is undeniably the Kimchi Hash – absolutely incredible flavors that linger. It's unfortunate that this is only a feature item. I strongly advocate for the Kimchi Hash to secure a permanent place on the menu.
Justin Ridley
Amazing food and great service both time we've been here 😊
Randall March
Really delicious food! Halle treated us very well - thanks!
Rob Milton
I often visit here for brunch. I really enjoyed their new Kimchi hash bowl. The service is always friendly as well.

Monki is my favourite brunch place in Calgary, they have delicious hearty food and you wi not be disappointed with anything sweet on the menu. My personal favs are the brisket poutine and every feature French toast. Always worth the wait for the pumpkin and mini egg French toasts 😍🤤

I finally went to Monki after hearing about it from my co-worker. Went to the beltline location which was smaller but cozy. Went on a friday morning, it was not so busy and got seated immediately. We really liked the candied tacos, it was savory and sweet. The reverse french toast I thought was too sweet and my sister said it was ok for her, so I guess depends on preference, nothing to rave about. Drip coffee was very weak.
Ferdinand Furtado
Finally a place that took my breakfast and brunch experience to the next level... Waiting for spring and summers to try the crazy French toasts !!!
David
Amazing food all around! Thank you to our server Lena for the excellent service. Ambience is very cozy, it made me feel like I was at home with my friends. There aren’t a lot of tables though so make sure to join the waitlist ahead of time on the weekends!
Erika
Our server was fantastic and helped with making our experience the best I would definitely be coming again
Yoana Georgieva
I had the kimchi hash and it was sooooo good!! Also I asked for some changes to the dish cause of dietary restrictions and they were really nice about it. Super nice staff!! And service was quick as well even though it was busy 10/10
