Who can resist those cakes?? Not me!!

I was meeting a friend for coffee, just coffee. First mistake, coming here, second mistake, standing in front of that amazing cabinet full of super delicious cakes, sweets & decadence my friend & I were trying to avoid. Next problem after our coffees were ordered was to admit defeat & deciding... read more

This place is raved about and has been for years but I don't get it. I came here two years ago and was disappointed and the same today. Food was average and overpriced. Service was minimal. I swear they have dim lighting to fool people into thinking they are having an "experience" when in fact they are being scammed.

Came here for lunch with family and was surprised at the amount of space at the rear of the restaurant where it opened up into a courtyard. The food here was ok, without being fantastic and having a wow factor. Coffee was good.

The Three Monkeys is a little coffee and tea house in West End, not far from the city. The coffee and tea is good too.

Three Monkeys is the place to go before or after a show. We eat here on an almost weekly basis - usually light meals, sometimes just cake and chai if it's late. Food is consistently good. The atmosphere is why we go here, we love the dark, hidden away nooks. It feels great. It is popular, very occasionally it is... More

In westend this funky little cafe is very deceiving. It looks like a pokey cafe until you go inside and out to the back. With an indoor and out door eating area out the back, it provides a mix of food and yummy cakes at a good prices. Open until late it's a good stop in if your on your... More

I must confess to having trouble finding The Three Monkeys in West End, but once I did, I was delighted. At first you enter a tiny area where cakes are displayed and orders taken. I was initially worried, after reading reviews, that there wouldn't be much in the way of actual meals--that there were mostly cakes. I mean, everyone mentions... More

This is a little coffee and tea house in the middle of West End. This is only a few min. to the centre of the city. This coffee shop is a surprise as it looks small from the front but opens up to lots of little nocks and crannies within a small garden area. The coffee is good and the... More

Love the edgy deco inside. Plenty of seating area. It's kinda rainforest environment inside. Yummy cakes and great coffees. Can't complain more. Good spot for chilling out and catching up with friends over coffee.

The apple pie was very tasty and I really liked that there were gluten and dairy free choices for my friend. Service was fast and friendly and prices were reasonable. The big surprise was just how big this place is. I was amazed at how far back it went and the garden area is lovely. Decorated in an ethnic vibe... More
