A fantastic restaurant with very reasonable prices. A great place if you are allergic to gluten. Friendly staff, a fun decor, and all around great experience.

Cheeky Monkey is a cozy deli and bistro, located in downtown St. Paul's Cathedral Hill neighborhood. We're open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week and brunch on both Saturday and Sunday. Cheeky Monkey is all about comfort food: brioche French toast and eggs benedict for brunch and gourmet sandwiches, soups and salads during lunch. At night, Cheeky Monkey transforms into a quaint bistro with offerings such as meatloaf, mac and cheese, steak, salmon, pork and chicken prepared fresh by our chef, often with locally sourced ingredients. We also feature a great beer and wine list. Ask about our great Gluten Free options as well.
