I walked to Cheeky Monkey with a friend today, and I would give it 5 stars but I thought it was pricey for what you got. The food was great though.I ordered the turkey sandwich and it was amazing, the chips were so good too. My friend ordered a salad and I can't remember which one but it had blueberries... More

After reading all the positive reviews we decided to try the Cheeky Monkey while visiting our son in St. Paul. We were quite disappointed. We walked in waited several minutes to be acknowledged, and seated. Several employees walked by us. After being seated and our drink order was taken, it was 15 minutes before our server came back to take... More

First time here. Great food. Sandwiches are awesome. Great quality as well. I went during the deli hours but it changes to bistro after a certain time. I'm going to try that in the summer.

This place is always busy, which I can believe since the food is so great. This is one of my favorite brunch spots in Saint Paul, cheap mimosas and menu with lots of variety. The homemade chips are a crowd favorite. The sandwiches are all original and a perfect size. This is a great place for date night, girl's brunches... More

We go to this restaurant often in the summer. The name Cheeky Monkey got me to try it. I was pleasantly surprise at the quality, service and unique dishes. Love their pot roast, cubano and salads. Great outdoor sitting and service.

Jeanne and I had dinner this evening at the Cheeky Monkey. We were tired of the "same old-same old" so in reading the Minnesota Monthly's dinning guide,the Deli was recommended. We thought we'd try it. Located on Selby Ave, it's in a remodeled store front. We went for dinner and we were quickly seated. I ordered Meatloaf, buttered corn, potato,... More

We have eaten at the Cheeky Monkey mulitple times and have always had a great experience. Last evening was one of the best. The menu choices included many typical standards. When they arrived at the table they had modern updates and included high quality ingredients. We enjoyed the shrimp and chorizo tacos, ham and brie sandwich, wedge salad, cubano sandwich.... More

Normally, I would not rate a deli so high, but this one is different. More of a restaurant than a deli; a nicely varied menu; and a focus on healthy eating. I went twice: first, with my daughter, after my arrival from SFO. She lives close by, and is currently trying to be gluten-free, which this place offers. She had... More

I live on Selby and I love the walk up to Cheeky Monkey Deli. It's in a great location and you can choose to dine inside, outside in the front or outside in the patio in the back. Whatever you choose, you will have great service and yummy food. They have a specific menu depending if you're there for brunch,... More
