I LOVE Three Monkeys and so do my family. I return to Newcastle several times a year and always stop in for breakfast or lunch. It has been consistently good for years. The smoothies are the best in the world and you could live for a week on one of them. Service is always top notch. I love eggs. All... More

Honestly this was probably the best breakfast out we have had in Newcastle. The food was devine and the service lovely.

The first time I went here for breakfast I vowed I would return. And I have many times. The food is great, the restaurant is small and often crowded but worth it. I love this place.

Came here for breakfast and from the moment we walked in the staff are very friendly! We sat upstairs on the balcony and were asked for drinks almost immediately. Tried the Nutella latte and it's addictive! Will definitely try making it at home. Breakfast was yummy and catered to my allergy needs :)

I went here with my partner for the first time and I was amazing with the level of customer service. I ordered the bacon and eggs and my partner had the big breakfast, Monkey fry. They make a delicious mushrooms, relish, sausages and ect. The environment was very earthy, it had seating out the front, indoor and out the back.
