“Consistently up there. Worth visiting.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2012 via mobile

Three Monkeys is on Darby Street, the premier cafe strip of Newcastle where a restaurant not up to scratch would simply not survive. If that's not reason enough to drop by for a lazy weekend breakfast or lunch the innovative and delicious fare should be. We came for lunch on Mothers' Day, arguably one of the busiest restaurant days of the year. Despite that the nothing-is-too-much-trouble reception, crisp service and simple but honest food didn't fail to impress. Try it, you won't be disappointed.
