Description: 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.

Been to JM a few times, this was the most disappointing. Fast service. Ordered the haloumi salad ($17) which was way overpriced. Two tiny pieces of haloumi on a bed of mesclun. 3x as much haloumi may have been about right. Eggs Benedict were so so too .... tired of all these reheated poached eggs people serve these days.

Been coming here a while now with my family and friends the staff always greet us with the biggest smiles which is nice to see! The coffee is excellent and food is good value for money, the chefs always give good size portions and the poached eggs are perfectly cooked!

Definitely would recommended to anyone nearby really nice place with a great atmosphere and welcoming staff.

My boyfriend and I visited Jimmy Monkey’s on Saturday morning and were treated with a delicious breakfast. The cafe itself is nicely laid out and open. A friendly waiter brings the menus over but you have to order and pay at the counter. I had a cheese and ham toastie on doorstop bread and my boyfriend had the steak sandwich. Both were delicious but I think the steak sandwich was definitely the best. The coffee was also really nice (if a little strong for me - but that wasn’t their fault!) Overall definitely worth a little visit if you are in the One North/Buono Vista area.

Hidden and chill hideout for food and drinks. Was there with a girlfriend and we enjoyed the atmosphere. The staff were warm and friendly. There seemed to be a familiarity with some of the regular patrons when they made their orders.
We ordered the steak sandwich and 'The Hulk'. The tomatoes and onions on the steak sandwich were fragrant but the steak was slightly chewy. However, 'The Hulk' was a delicious blend of avocado and feta cheese atop toasted bread. Lovely flavours!
We will be back to try the coffee!

Lovely place to have brunch (Australian ) in weekend - that is you can find any available space..Great coffee; very nice owner of the business (he was very attentive and kind with my children).
People come here for a variety of coffee however I like the food as well. Very nice team.
