Description: Nestled in the lush greenery of one-north, built within historic old army barracks, Jimmy Monkey is certainly a gem sparkling in nature. The décor at jimmy monkey boasts of raw and deconstructed elegance. Exposed beams and brickwork of the old original army barracks against new age furniture and equipment set the atmosphere of rustic urbanization. The visual spectacle of coffee beans roasted, ground and made into a fresh cup of coffee can be observed at the Barista’s Bench, as trained baristas will pull shot after shot from the SlayerTM.Grab scrumptious brunch on the weekends, or lazy morning breakfasts in the weekdays. Delectable lunch and dinner served everyday too. Kick back, unwind, surf - all with your beverage of choice: coffee, tea, some wine and beer.

“Best coffee in town in a relaxing atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2014

The place is not the easiest to find. Take a cab to go there.
The relaxing ambience and very laid back & friendly staff makes you feel like you belong there. The flat white and cappuccino are excellent.

“Fare enough but overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014

I'm living the cond nearby, so I visited and have lunch.
I arrived at 12:00 so there were so crowded. I suppose you should avoid that time because waiter couldn't support customer well.
Anyway food was fare enough but overpriced. Atmosphere was fabulous though.

“Cant beat the coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014

Coffee is Singapore is generally getting a lot better, but this place still sets the benchmark for Flat Whites. I guarantee you cant have just one.
Staff are pretty friendly and helpful also, they seem to care about what they do.

“Favourite little quiet hanging-out spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

Nestled in a residential area, it takes quite some time to spot the cafe for newcomers. However probably due to its location, the cafe is mostly quiet and quaint during my time of visit.
The quality of their coffee served is always impressively consistent. The staffs are friendly, which really adds to the whole laid-back ambience. An excellent and charming little cafe to unwind and savour a good cup of joe.
