This is a really interesting coffee house which I have visited several times over a few years. There is a great selection of cakes and the coffee is great. Today the service was unfriendly but that's life!

They open until 11pm which is good as Brisbane has not many places open this late. The experience is not always nice as there are a mixture of different people.

Chai Latte - strange taste, watery, bitter. I have had proper Indian Chai Latte and this is nothing like it. Staff seem disinterested. maybe they are just too busy.

Oh ... The Three Monkeys! This lovely coffee house has been part of West End coffee culture for ever... And for good reason. This coffee house has grown til it has spilled into its garden creating with it its own little tree house atmosphere. The coffee is great - as are the meals and cakes - and I have always... More

This is a great little coffee shop with a huge selection of cakes. The food is basic - nachos, pasta, salads and very tasty. Prices are average. Speciality is the Chai tea - made in a bowl so maybe cut back on the cake if you're partaking of this particular beverage. The venue itself has lots of dlittle nooks and... More

My friends and I ordered their fruit drinks which were very fresh and tasty! We also ordered their nachos with beans and shared it between the three of us. It's arguably one of the best nachos I've ever had. And on a final note service was quick :)

While there are a heap of rowdy pubs near by and delinquent behavior just around the corner most Friday and weekend nights The Three Monkeys is sort of a haven. Inside too one can find a bit of "social shelter" and privacy. All up it has a good vibe. Coffee is good but some bigger sizes would be the go.

I was there with friends and I think that is one of the best places to go in Brisbane. Perfect to have a good conversation, enjoy the different kinds of desserts and taste the tea or the coffee. All is really good. The environment is very kind and comfortable.

Recently caught up with a friend for coffee and cake, the place is cosy and very low lit inside (would be great in Winter) but outside opens up to a lovely leafy courtyard. The cakes were pretty good although together with some hot drinks it was pretty pricey but it's really the laid back ambience you go there for! Will... More
