We hadn't been here for about 6-7years, we had got fed up with waiting 30-45 mins for a coffee. We thought we would give it another try. Our first impressions were that the décor hasn't changed one bit in all that time. We ordered coffee and cake and found a nice corner to sit in. To our surprise the coffee... More

I love 3 monkeys as it has been a family and personal favourite for a long time now. Over time it has changed hands which is obvious with the changes in staff and layout however the food is always beautiful and drinks and menu is great. I love the culture and variety brought the to place. Has both indoor and... More

Firstly, I had no idea how big the cafe really was and was of course amazed by how cool it was! Once ordered, I was pleasantly surprised again by the quality of the food (and drinks). Definitely the best nachos I've tasted in Brisbane! (And I'm a bit nachos fan!) And also the best iced mocha in Brisbane! I was... More

The location is unmatched and so relaxing in the evenings as the sunsets and you enjoy the rice paddy next door. The food is excellent and the service is very good. It is more expensive than most places in Bali but the quality reflects the price and service is better than most.

This Teahouse has been an institution in Brisbane for many years. It started off as an old Queensland but has expanded with a lovely covered outdoor area. It is full of interesting bits and pieces, carpets on the walls, board games to play, things for children. And it has a great range of light meals and scrumptious morning/afternoon teas. It... More

The Three Monkeys Cafe has been around for a very long time, little has really changed over the years and is always busy. The cafe is very different to other cafes, the decor is quirky and eclectic, low ceiling, dim lighting, with little nooks and crannies to hide away in if you choose. Out the back of the cafe you...

Picture this. Cosy Ambience, great feel, wide menu. Good start. Then you order your coffee and once you have a sip you begin to reevaluate a lot of your decisions in your life thus far. It's a profound exercise in character building which I would suggest to all! But don't take my word for it! Come and meet the three... More
