Went to the Funkey Monkey this morning for breakfast on a recommendation.
Very nice cafe, great decor and very busy. Very inviting. I did find I was a bit crampt, the tables are very close together. Also got the feeling the waitstaff were new or maybe just a little stressed this morning- but they are the only negatives.

Food was quick and beautifully presented! My husband and I both had the big breakfasts, which were very tasty! Coffee was great, which I was very pleased about as its often hard to find!

I believe the cafe had recently been taken over and I believe they will do very well. It's worth a stop in!

Had 2 experiences with previous owners. Both really ordinary one bordering on terrible. New owners now and a real chef who can cook what you ask for. You even get tea and coffee in crockery cups instead of take away cups as the previous owner was too tight to pay for a dishwasher. No wonder they sold.

I like my coffee and this place did not disapoint. Food was of very high standard. I ordered the seafood bisque which was just beautiful. The biggest let down was from the inexperienced floor staff. But the food was delicious

We loved sitting outside in the sun at this restaurant. They also opened bi fold doors inside to give more air on a hot day. Very popular you have to be quick for morning coffee.
Chai Spiced Latte is to die for. Best ones I've ever had.
Staff efficient and willing to please. Will return when passing down that way again.

New Owners:- young couple - exceptionally talented in gastronomical delights!
Kept company with a group of friends here on the 'Opening Night' on 14/2/2014
The place generally open during the day as a cafe'
The service on opening night - great
The food extra exceptional - with each mouthful of food there was a party happening inside my mouth; this I could easily have endured to no end - yes the food was that good!
If the opportunity arises to dine here of an evening - grab it with both hands.
