“Casual atmosphere but serious attention to satisfaction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014 via mobile

Had coffee and niblies. Scorching hot service. Perfect coffee. It was like having morning tea at a friends house.

“Refreshing cuppa at flying monkey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

They have a limited range of edibles but do a good old fashioned pot of leaf tea. It was quite lovely to have a good quality pot of tea (with full cream milk supplied) that had a really full and rich flavour.

“Cool little cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

I have been here 4 times now and the coffee is great, I love the way they have set it up, it's very homely with the sugar and antique teaspoons on the tables, and some if the tables are made out of old doors, it's put together so well, the only thing I didn't like was the spinach and ricotta roll, it was really mushy and tasted store bought and microwaved so no longer crispy, but this would not stop me from going back there again,

“Cairns' newest hip cafe- LOVE this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

I'm a cairns local and this is one of the best cafés in town!
Absolutely impeccable coffee, great hip ambience (piano and comfy couches) with a local art shop attached beside it.
A small selection of hot, freshly made food (I've had the spinach and ricotta rolls-YUM!!) as well as a handful of gluten free options.
I always end up getting the 'mad monkey' coffee (spanish inspired espresso with a little condensed milk!) The iced teas/ginger beers are so delicious too!
MUST TRY this brilliant cafe for their impeccable service and amazing coffees!
