Serving size, taste, and display were all average. For what they are charging, there are many other better choices. Consider reviewing your menu.

Great Aussie style breakfast joint. Well staffed, lots of avocado. Three eggs is the norm so you won't feel hungry afterwards. Excellent coffee of course, they roast their own beans.

Our regular end of walk stop for an excellent Flat White coffee here at Kimmy Monkeys (and Jimmy Monkeys Too - opposite). Open early and always excellent. There's something special about their coffee that few others in Singapore have discovered.

I visit the outlet regularly, it's near my workplace. I think I have tried every item on the menu. Generally the food is good but not the most affordable. I would give the restaurant 4 out of 5 stars but the coffee alone is worth a full 5/5. The staff is very friendly. Please note that they are usually quite... More

We went twice during our trip as it was right by our apartment. The first time was for an afternoon snack and coffee. I had a milkshake that was delicious and the coffees were good too. We went back for breakfast a couple of days later and we really enjoyed our breakfasts. The cafe is cute and there's quirky little... More

Menu is not extensive but what they do, they do very well. Staff have always been helpful. Best coffee in Singapore. Love the chilled atmosphere, very cool cafe.

This cafe is well tucked away in a cosy corner inside Biopolis. I have been here several times. I still remembered the very first time I went, I was attracted to the toilet bowl that was situated way up near the high ceiling and the little monkey that is placed high up near the entrance. I noticed that the little... More

After reading good reviews I wanted to taste the breakfast at jimmy's on my way to the airport. When we arrived it was full and there were not seats so we seen a jimmy too across the walkway, so we asked was it possible to order breakfast from Jimmy but eat it at Jimmy too? The answer was yes you... More

excellent coffee, and choice of beans. The owner's complete obsession with coffee makes this a happy, happy place in the west of Singapore. Food is great, go for the smashed avocado. Perfect retreat for any one needing a little Antipodean pickmeup in the tropics.

Came here today for lunch after a long walk along the old railway line. Opted for the shredded pork burger and washed it down with a fairly expensive beer. Followed up with a coffee at the related "Jimmy Monkey Too" in the other building of the One North complex. Coffee was great but a little pricey (around $6). Overall both... More

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.
