MONKI

Monki in Inglewood

Come get breakfast in calgary’s oldest & boldest neighbourhood!

Be it a weekend family outing, business lunch or a brunch date, enjoy a fulfilling breakfast dining experience in Calgary’s Inglewood. 

Monki Breakfast Club & Bistro Inglewood

From The Beltline to Inglewood

For almost 6 years since opening our original Beltline joint, ‘Small space, long waits’ was the most frequent complaint we continued to receive. We could only address this by expanding into a new location – at a neighbourhood that fits the ‘Monki mantra’ – innovation, collaboration & community. Where else would that be besides Inglewood! Our Inglewood breakfast club was opened in April 2019. 

About Inglewood

Located just east of downtown Calgary, Inglewood nurtures a culturally rich community of local artists, musicians, boutiques, eateries, breweries attracting locals & tourists alike. The neighbourhood boasts iconic live music destinations like the Blues Can and Ironwood Stage and hosts a variety of festivals aimed at promoting local artists & businesses such as Jazz YYC, Sunfest, Fringe Festival & Mid Winter Film Festival. Furthermore, Inglewood is a popular family attraction with its proximity to Calgary Zoo, St. Patrick’s Island Park, East Village & the Fort Calgary Histroic Park. 

Parking

In Inglewood, Parking is predominantly free & relatively easy to find. You will be able to park for free (2 hours) along our block on 9th avenue SE or in the nearby streets – 11th, 12th, 13th or 14th. Being of course incredibly cyclist friendly, the neighbourhood is fitted with bike racks throughout the Main Street (9th Ave) and adjacent streets. 

Planning Your Brunch Visit

With a capacity of almost double our Beltline location, our Inglewood breakfast club offers a comfortable, spacey & family friendly dining experience in Calgary. We aren’t accepting reservations due to our limited seating. If you plan to walk-in during the weekend, you may experience a wait-time. You can instead skip the wait & ‘Get in Line’ virtually on your phone. We will then simply notify you when to make your way!. 

Enjoy a delicious start to your day by getting breakfast in Calgary’s artsiest neighbouhood!

Monki in Inglewood is our go to for brunch. The service is fantastic and the food is delicious. James and team offer a pleasant atmosphere and recommend their favourite dishes. Today my family enjoyed the Brisket, Bacon and Salmon Eggs Benedict. If you are looking for a cozy spot to brunch in a hip little neighbourhood in Calgary I would recommend Monki!

Excellent service, delicious food and fast delivery of the order. The cafe is clean and cozy. But when we were leaving, we heard a song played by a children's Ukrainian group, then we put 5 stars without question 😛🥰

Living only blocks away, my boyfriend and I have been here multiple times now. The food and service have always been impeccable. I highly reccomend you get on the waiting list before you arrive as it is a small place and it gets packed easily, which I dont mind, the best places are often like this 😉 Food wise, I typically like sweet stuff, but here, I prefer the savory dishes. My go-to is the avocado toast with smoked salmon, and my boyfriend's is the brisket poutine. Both delicious!

Joined the waitlist and the table was ready in no time on a Saturday around noon. Staff immediately offered us a high chair and got our little settled with pancakes straight away. Pancake tacos (3) for me and salted caramel latte with brisket hash for hubby. No complaints whatsoever. Great people watching spot along the window, fabulous service and super flavourful food! You can’t go wrong.

He made sure we had everything we needed - 10/10.The food - absolutely frickin delicious. Grilled cheese with pesto and a side of the Monki hashbrowns? I could eat it seven more times. 😋Thank you so much for today!

Our server was very kind and attentive! I booked a reservation for 4 but last minute needed to add 1 more and they were very accommodating. The food was amazing, I’ve recommended this place to my family and other friends ever since I tried it for the first time with my best friend! The French toast is our go-to but the perogies are sooo good for a savoury dish!

This place was so cute. It was quiet and easy to get to. The prices are on the higher end and it’s not completely accessible as the door does have a lip and a step in, but there is wheel room for walkers at least. The chairs are also light enough to be moved.However they are not safe for plus sized folks. The bathrooms are not wheelchair accessible and they are single stall, but too small for a Walker.The server was really sweet and incredibly attentive! The food came hot and was tasty. The hot chocolate however was a little too mild, but the lemon shortbread cookie was really good with the lavender whip. I didn’t enjoy the lavender floaties in the drink though.I ordered hashbrowns and I enjoyed that it was a mix of sweet potatoes and potato, but I would have liked to see more sweet potatoes.(There are unfortunately not very many plant based options)The music was nice and calm until they randomly played “it’s raining tacos” 😂I would recommend this location for a brunch spot.
