The service was good but the " branch" was not as expected. Needs a lot of improvement. We order omelettes and eggs benedict but were not as expected. To dry.

Nice restaurant. The inside is set up cute. We sat on the back patio. Our server was prompt and friendly. Be sure to ask about the hash of the day as they have a new special daily. Sandwiches can become salads upon request. They are very accommodating. A nice selection of side dishes too. It's be nice if the sandwiches... More

Food was awesome, a little over priced, but delicious. The feel of the place reminded me of several places over seas.

We tried the Cheeky Monkey Deli based on reviews and it was spot on. Sandwiches were interesting and tasty, the special Southwest soup with chicken was nice and spicy, outdoor seating on the street or the patio out back, in addition to able seating inside, give you lots of options. Order at the counter and food is delivered to your... More

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.
