Quirky

This is where to go if you want a "different experience" - but be prepared to wait a while for your coffee or meal to come if they are busy. As I say, its more about the experience. The cafe consists of several small dimly lit rooms with one large sun filled courtyard right at the back. They were... read more

Had a lovely mid-week afternoon tea at Three Monkeys. The Chai Tea served in quirky bowls is certainly worth leaving home for! The ambiance is delightful and the service very good. Will certainly be returning for a breakfast, lunch or dinner with another bowl of their delicious Chai Tea.

I had high hopes for this establishment and soon after entering they were gone. There was a table of about 8 of us and we all ordered separately at the counter. I was first to order and hence my raisin toast came out first. After about 20-30min another girl at our table still hadn't received her raisin toast so we... More

Don’t stop at the front door – turn to the left and keep on following the tables all the way out to the courtyard at the back. There’s a lot of space in here, all of it quirky, much of it intimate. Choose a spot that suits you – you’ll find one! Great place for a relaxed catch-up with friends.... More

Sadly we will be giving this place a wide birth in the future. The food left a lot to be desired. The nachos were ordinary at best. A chicken enchilada was ordered but there was no chicken to be found. I wont be back.

This place with all it's little nooks and crannies and old world atmosphere has been an institution and meeting place for many, many years. It has a lovely outside area in the back and while always busy, the service is always pleasant and good. Their coffees, teas and hot chocolates are good and the cakes are fresh and delicious.

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
