loughborough has several great cafés but I would definitely edge my bets and say that this one is the best- and that's just based on the homemade cakes! I have visited this cafe many times now and I have to say my favourite option (and what I consider to be the best value) is the high tea for two- it... More

We found this cafe a couple of years ago when another close by was too busy and we are so glad we did. Lovely smallish place, very friendly staff. All the food is made to order but the wait is never longer than you would want. Tea is served in a pretty flowery teapot with a little shortbread biscuit on... More

Visited 2 Monkey's Cafe for lunch, the sandwiches all looked wonderful, my chicken and roasted vegetable sandwich was very yummy! The cafe is very cosy with lovely sofa chairs & a very friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The cakes also looked very impressive! I thought the food was quite pricey but would go back again.

We have been going to the 2 Monkeys for some time now and their standard of service and quality of food is worth paying a teeny bit extra for. Small but cosy and friendly service, all dishes are cooked to order and the cakes are out of this world!

Nice place, clean and tidy albeit a little on the expensive side, but all told a nice place to stop and take a breather while out shopping and enjoy a cuppa or a coffee with a slice of what you fancy..

Popped in here the other day when shopping in town. Although there were afew tables taken the owner straight away suggested a couple of suitable tables for me to park my pram - I ended up on a table for 6 which did not seem to be a problem. I ordered at the counter whilst he was making a big... More

Both myself and my husband love the 2 Monkeys and have been visiting for 2 years or so. It knocks the spots off impersonal places like the chains.The staff are very friendly and welcoming giving it a neighbourhood feel. It's clean, bright and lovely and warm. It also serves both the best tea and the best coffee in Loughborough. I... More

Lovely cafe, good choice of light lunches and drinks. Very friendly staff, clean and bright. Nothing negative to say, great place to meet up with friends for a coffee break or lunch
