“Excellent, simple, local place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013

The coffee here is consistently good, the breakfasts are simple and properly executed (try the especially good French Toast) and all this is served in a very spacious roomy setting. This establishment does the simple things well and doesn't pretend to be anything too flashy. Packed with locals enjoying good food and value for money, this is the best breakfast place locally. Free wifi is useful as well. I have been a regular for about year, and it is consistent although the staff are always very busy. For anyone in the area, this is highly recommended.

“Great breakfast venue!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2013

Catching up with friends for brunch we looked for a place in the Entertainment Book that was close to home. Saw Two Monks Cafe and had a recollection of someone mentioning it so we thought we would give it a go. Service was good with polite staff. Food and Coffee were great as was the freshly made juice. We will definitely come back again, they take bookings which makes it nice to know when you arrive you have a table.
