“Make this your local”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

Make this your new local if you want to be part of a friendly, prejudice-free Cairns art scene. And the coffee is so good it makes you emotional.

“Great coffee!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

I only popped in for a coffee but was impressed by the friendly service and funky but antique like feel of the place. I can't comment on the food sadly but the coffee was great!

“Feels like home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

I am such a big fan of the Flying Monkey! From the chairs covered in fake grass to the changing wall art, this place so many cute details that creates such charming and non-assuming ambiance. As well as ridiculously friendly staff, this cafe has fantastic inexpensive coffee in generously sized cups. I would liken the experience to having a relaxing cup of coffee at a friend's house where there is no rush to leave. I will be back... many times.
