Would certainly come again, reasonably priced at £12 for 3 sandwiches a coffee a tea and some water.

Great place to visit for a light lunch or tea/coffee with fantastic homemade cakes. A little on the pricey side but in the end you get what you pay for.

I found this little café just by chance and I'm extremely glad that I did! All of the food and drink that was served to us was of a very high quality! The staff that served us were all that you could want; polite, funny and friendly. Some of the prices, at first glance, looked a bit steep however as... More

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!
