We were looking for a warm spot for lunch on a rainy day. Found a table upstairs. Loved the wall artwork and plant pots. Very cool. Food was great - had roast vegetables & haloumi burger & chips, and lychee mint cooler. Very tasty!

Had a lovely experience at Monica's. All of the staff were so lovely! I ordered Vege breakfast. Bree added extra hollandaise on the side for me, which was delicious. Great atmosphere, felt at home!

NO, I think you could get one as there are lots. If you have a preference for wither outside or upstairs, might be an idea. It is busy, but it turns over fairly quickly.
