It really was the best breakfast that I’ve ever had. I had the big brekkie and my friend had a tailormade combination of vegan with sausages. We certainly didn’t need lunch after this extravaganza. I never eat beans but I just loved their smoky beans...More

We were not looking for this place but reading they smoked their only bacon with hickory was the winner for me. Excellent serving portion of eggs benny but they had heaps of choices, good change from standard buffet breakfast. Highly recommended.

Had brunch at monkey joes - it was excellent. Especially loved the bacon and beans. Nice extra touch of the toy monkeys for kids to play with!

We had breakfast at Monkey Joes several times whilst in Port Douglas. The meals are delicious,fresh and well presented and quite reasonably priced. The house made beans are the best as well as the house smoked bacon. The staff are all very nice and friendly.
