We visited this because we liked the name. We had been to see The Monkees show at the concert hall the night before. We found a wonderful quirky little café that served a fabulous breakfast. For 11 dollars we got 2 eggs (poached perfectly) bread, spinach, plenty of bacon and tomatoes. And the orange juice was delicious. Find a seat,... More

A good weekend breakfast place to go! There is a homey feel to this place that you get as soon as you walk in. The food was good and reasonable value for the money. I'll be back!

Its a funky place with many little rooms and a quaint decor thats interesting and cosy. The coffee is great and the cakes really good. Its a casual place that serves breakfasts light lunches and snacks . Its a pleasant cool place to unwind in an otherwise bustling Westend.

I laughed at the writing outside claiming that this is the most atmospheric cafe in Brisbane. But they are right!

looking around the area for a quick bite to eat for lunch. Came across the 3 monkeys, and on the recommendation of my friend who had been here before, we stopped for lunch. Great value and food, mixture of choices and the cakes will make me come back to try with coffee next time i am around

I have already been here for few times now and I must say i have never been disappointed. This is an absolutely lovely restaurant\coffee shops, ideal for chilling out with friends after dinner. The small entrance hides a way much larger space than expected from the outside. Why should you stop here? The ambiance is just incredible, charm, quirky, arty,... More

This place rocks for ambience, friendly service and the most delish array of cheesecakes. Great range for rbrekky and lunch too or an evening pizza. Lovely covered garden area out the back and popular entertainment paraphernalia of past icons who have visited in the past are plastered over the front rooms. This is a converted house which flooded a couple... More

Loved this place, it was my first time and absolutely loved the atmosphere, the staff was very friendly and the chai was to die for. I went with some friends, unfortunately I had to say no to the desserts because I of my training regime and trying to stay clean eating, but I ordered halloumi platter, and it didnn't disappoint...
