"KEEP ABILENE BORING" Tshirts are a trademark in this shop. My first time traveling to Abilene, I wandered into MONKS downtown and instantly fell in love with their funky artistic vibes and comfortable atmosphere. Full of hand-me-down couches, tables, and chairs, MONKS coffee shop is a place where tons of students and other people in the community come to hang out and get stuff done. Many artists' works are displayed on the walls and every Thursday you can count on Open Mic Night. This design reflects the fun, laid back atmosphere of the coffee shop and also incorporates an interactive element by allowing the labels to spin, revealing little "pick me up" phrases among the frames on the walls. Eco-friendly glass containers allow for easy refills.
