premise - cool as a million bucks. Check out the images that I have posted and you will understand why. :) location - tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the crazy city life of SG, One-North residences location gives you a fantastic ease of mind whilst you sip into their crazy good coffee. Listen to nothingness and enjoy... More

It was an unexpected lunch stop and I'm glad we did. Interesting menu would like to come back and try mor. Excellent coffee and the steak sandwich was really good if not a little too big for lunch. Quirky decor and really friendly staff. Would defiantly come again.

Long taxi ride on the back of good reviews but coffee lacked depth. Good crema but missing flavor and mouth feel. Lunch was really disappointing - poor quality bread and rib eye that was tasteless made my steak sandwich not good value at $21 Sgd.

Met a friend for lunch here because being Melbournian I'm always alert to the possibiltiy of good coffee and decent cafe style food. The place is a little off the beaten track but easy to get to via MRT once you know where it is. The decor is quirky and fun, though I was seated, cheek by jowl with two... More

lucky me that the office I was visiting was at Fusionopolis. Short walk to cafe and as soon as I walked in the door loved the feel of Jimmy Monkey. Then feel in love with the food and coffee. Definitely returning next trip and will work my wy through the menu😄

I visited with friends and their teenage children. Great brunch (The Hulk is avocado and feta smashed together on toast) and excellent coffee. Friendly staff who were chatty and positive. Nice atmosphere.

Jimmy Monkey cafe is definitely a great place to spend some time chatting away with friends or your loved one on a great weekend. Price are slightly steep but justifiable on the quality and service. #foodingsingapore

After a work appointment in the west, my colleague and I decided to head here for lunch - an interesting cafe hidden in a condominium residences. A lovely little Australian cafe with "raw and deconstructed elegance", this cafe is constantly filled up with people enjoying its lovely coffee and food as well as chilling out over drinks.

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.
