Have had brunch, lunch and dinner here! Always a great choice! Mimosa for brunch! Gluten Free options, bread and desserts! Beautiful outside seating in back of the restaurant, some outside seating out front too. Sophisticated flavors and child friendly at the same time.

We enjoyed the complimentary lemon and cucumber water while waiting (short wait) for our sandwiches. The flavor combinations were unique and well balanced. My meatloaf/bacon was "not my mother's" meatloaf sandwich, but spicy and flavorful.

We ate dinner here one summer evening. The selections were just right for this type of meal. We loved the beet salads. Prices were reasonable. Service was very good. Just a good spot to have good food in a casual setting and not strain the budget.

I recently tried The Cheeky Monkey Deli for Sunday brunch with my family, and was very disappointed with our experience. The brunch menu is very limited, and service is extremely slow. Although the restaurant was not busy, we waited nearly an hour for our food. When the food finally came, the Eggs Benedict were completely raw, and the French Toast... More

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
