Never disappointed going here. Best range of teas/coffees, cakes, and very inexpensive but quality food! I live for bread, and the bread and dips platter here is amazing for $11! I love the setting and decor this cafe provides. Whenever I'm around west end, there's no questions asked where I'm off to for lunch!

Seem to be taken here by family each time we are in Brisbane as it seems to be their favorite place to go to, fully understandable as the iced choc is fantastic and the food is very good, great atmosphere in a little cafe that has a lot going for it, the food looks and tastes great, Brisbane is lucky...

We love this gorgeous teahouse, especially sitting outside in the garden, which can't be seen from the entrance. The counter is always full of an amazing array of yummy cakes, and the coffee is excellent. Everything comes in large portion sizes too! Perfect place for a coffee and cake before or after a night out.

Been to this coffee house plenty of times. From the outside it is deceiving. Has a great outdoor area out the back. Staff are friendly and food is good. Great cakes very rich. Recommend this place if your catching up with friends for a coffee and a chat. They are now open for breakfast.

As everyone's comments, cakes are fantastic & coffee (cappuccino) was nice as well. From the entry, first we thought such a small cafe. Boy! Were we wrong, it continue to side and all the way through to back yard. Nice set up.

I visited with friends after the West End Markets. I love the ambience. It is a unique place with an eccletic decor. Inside is cosy, dimly lit with little places to sit. Keep walking through and there is a nice courtyard with some seating for larger groups. The coffee and various other drinks were great. The selection of cakes was... More

One of my favourite cafes in Brisbane for many years. Never disappoints. Lots of yummy food choices & the coffee is excellent. It's a one of a kind place & easy to just sit back & relax with loved ones and/or friends. Don't miss it if you're in Brisbane anytime soon...

lovely place with dangerously delicious cakes! you'd better be hungry to fit some of them in ;) particularly appreciated the seating area at the back and overall special atmosphere.

I can't remember how long I've been going to Three Monkeys, probably nearly thirty years. Hidden away it is like the home of an eccentric relative, nothing about it is manufactured. Food has always been reliable as has the coffee.

The Three Monkeys is a standout cafe where locals and visitors have many to choose from. Cafes come and go - some barely last 6 months - while others endure. The Three Monkeys is a West End institution that gets the important things right. The tea, coffee and range of cakes on offer are just what you would hope for.... More
