This little gem of a place is perfect for me. I live only 2.5 blocks away and when I don't want to cook at home, my legs take me to the Guilty Monkey for breakfast or lunch. The omelets, Swedish pancakes, cinnamon buns and traditional...More

My wife and I had lunch here. It is just off of 5th Ave. Great little courtyard setting with plenty of shade. The Turkey and Pesto sandwich was outstanding! Everything is made fresh when you order. Staff was very friendly also! Great find...will be back!

I came here with some local friends and ordered the Eclectic Omelette, it's really tasty. Beatriz, the owner, prepares the bread included in the dish, it's awesomely good. The coffee is really good too.

I absolutely love The Guilty Monkey. Set within a little divers' hotel, the owners are an adorable Swedish couple who make all food to order. I stumbled upon this little place because of their bar area that peaks out onto 10th street in downtown Playa...More

We ended stopping by twice. We really wanted to try the cinnamon rolls every one was raving about but they had run out. Our boys were disappointed. We chatted with one of the employees who was very nice and told us to try again later...More
