Monk’s Rock Coffeehouse and Bookstore

Run by the students of St. Innocent’s Academy, this recently remodeled café mixes Russian icons with Reuben sandwiches. The name references the Orthodox faith, but any visitor can enjoy stocking up on samovars, matryoshka (“nesting”) dolls and gilded portraits of saints here. Just upstairs is a sister outlet, the High Tide, a thrift and consignment shop.
