Went to Jimmy Monkey this morning. Was very excited as we have just moved to this area so it's great to have a brunch cafe local to us. Interior - lovely. Staff - lovely. I am so sad about leaving the following review: The worst cooked eggs I have ever tasted. We both ordered different egg dishes. The egg was... More

Jimmy Monkey is one of the best places for coffee in Singapore. The staff is very friendly and I like their the breakfast/lunch/brunch menu a lot. The 'hulk' is a must-try. This place is also worth the visit because of relaxed, urban atmosphere. If you like the Tiong Bahru cafes, you'll definitely like Jimmy Monkey. I've been there many times:... More

This place has the best coffee in Singapore! It is owned by a charming owner from Melbourne, and run by some exceptional baristas. Great brunch menu too. Definitely worth a special trip..

My husband and I attended Jimmy Monkey last Saturday for brunch with our 15 month daughter. We had a bit of a hard time locating it but what a hidden gem! We chose it based on reviews of having the "best coffee in Singapore"...fantastically the reviews were right! I had a flat white & my hubby a cappuccino - both... More

Loved this place the moment I walked in. Its quiet and cozy on weekdays. Decor and ambience is superb. Coffee is definitely one of the best I've had in Singapore. Staff are friendly and tries to go out of their way to accommodate requests. Only issue I have is the limited food choices. But all in all, good coffee experience... More

We arrived with a group of 4 to have late breakfast. I ordered a plate with two semi-hard boiled eggs. After 30 minutes the plates arrived. Unfortunately my eggs were nearly fully rear, with nearly all egg white liquid. They apologized and I asked them to simply make the eggs fully hard boiled. After 15 minutes (others had meanwhile finished... More

Hi there, that is truly a disaster breakfast, there is no 2 ways about that. No matter where it is you go to spend your money, having that happen is unacceptable, especially when you decided to spend it with us. Having said that, we would like to thank you for your feedback (it's feedback like this that makes us aware... More

The owner is passionate about coffee, and it is indeed, probably, the best coffee I ever had in Singapore. The food is unsophisticated, but really tasty! I had a steak sandwich, and I highly recommend that: worth every penny! However, the best part is the unique atmosphere. Service is impeccable, good taste for music, very relaxing! Will definitely be back... More

You have to give the owner credit, the PR he's doing is working, pity it stops there. How it got a mention in the Singapore Airline's magazine, I'll never know cause if it was in Melbourne, it would barely rate a mention. Average coffee, really average menu.

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.
