Both myself and my husband love the 2 Monkeys and have been visiting for 2 years or so. It knocks the spots off impersonal places like the chains.The staff are very friendly and welcoming giving it a neighbourhood feel. It's clean, bright and lovely and warm.
It also serves both the best tea and the best coffee in Loughborough. I prefer loose leaf tea, but if you prefer tea bags there's a range of those too. It arrives in a generous sized teapot, with pretty cups, complete with small shortbread, or with coffee, homemade chocolate. There's generous sized portions of delicious cake baked at the cafe and freshly prepared snacks and lunches. Wish we visited more often!!
