We only had drinks at the Funky Monkey, but they were incredible! My husband had the Funky Monkey shake (espresso and banana), and I had a hot latte. Both were fantastic and the staff very kind.

We eat here for lunch and dinner. By far the cheapest and best quality food going I. Chaing mai. Try their smoothys, we like the coconut and ask for it with yoghurt. They don't put ice in which means the flavour and texture is better. The food is out of this world and only about 40baht per meal. Recommend to... More

I've been staying just down the street from Funky Monkey and I love coming here in the mornings for a Muesli and Coffee. The Lady and her family who runs it are super friendly and polite. The shakes are something to experience on a hot day, Coffee and banana Shakes (Funk Monkey) and the Banana Chocolate (Choco-chimp) are excellent (if... More

The Funky Monkey is a nice little cafe in the old quarter. It's right at the end of the soi for Julie Guesthouse, so I came here a lot for breakfast. They have a good mix of Thai and Western food. The two things I'd highly recommend are the Funky Monkey Shake (Espresso and Bananas) and the fruit muesli (all... More

I stayed across the street at the Diva and found the food better here at this cafe. No nonsense, clear easy to read menu, that was easy to order from. As the title says the funky banana coffee shake was super as was my daily latte. Try it

This place is in the Old Quarter, just around the corner from many guesthouses. It was a great place to stop in for a quick snack or refreshing drink. They have a nice fruit & yogurt muesli and a great "Funky Monkey Shake" which is a delicious coffee-banana smoothie. The owner and her family are very friendly and helpful. She... More

This simple street side cafe is totally the place to go when one wants to have breakfast or a nice snack in the old town of Chiang mai. Funky monkey shake is the gem of the menu, its a must have! Another dish that is worth mentioning is fish taco.
