This one of my favorite coffee shops. I have been coming here for over 15 years and what I like about Three Monkeys is the service, the decor and the clientele. The crowd is your university kind, bit alternative and different rather than mainstream. The other thing I like is the fact that its not over priced, I feel that... More

I visited with a group of friends for post-dinner cake/coffee. The best thing about this place is its atmosphere. It has such a great vibe. The interior is so different and intriguing, I felt like a was in Spain or South America. Although it was a very busy night our food came quickly and it was delicious. Will definitely be... More

I love having a bowl of coffee or hot chocolate on a cold night here. Good location although it can be hard to get a seat for a small group or at busy times.

I have frequented The Three Monkeys Coffee & Tea-house in West End, since I moved here to the big smoke of Brisbane a little over a decade ago. It is a Brisbane institution and a must-visit. A decor that reflects Mediterranean and East-Asian influences. Lots of decorative pieces inside add to the character, as well as Memorabilia from its famous... More

Visiting some friends up in Brisbane and they brought me to this place. Surprised there was a line even late evening. Great place to hang out, essentially great coffee, hot chocolate, cake, apple pie until midnight and there were still heaps of people around.Loved the atmosphere.

This cute cafe has a great vibe, it's cosy, comfortable and does a great chai tea! The cakes displayed are all so tempting and I think it's good value for money.
