Overlooking the Annerley Soccer Fields and placed smack bang next to a fabulous park for the kids. We stumbled upon this cafe on a Sunday family walk along the south east bike/walking paths. My eyes light up at the thought of good coffee and the kids were screaming “MUM PARK!”. Decision made we were all happy with our cafe discovery.
The menu is unpretentious and done well and on our discovery day, we all decided on coffee’s, milkshakes and sharing the corn fritters with bacon and avocado. We have since been back multiple times on our Sunday family walks to enjoy many more coffees and milkshakes. The Monkey Bar Cafe is a very relaxed cafe that has you grabbing a seat and heading up to the counter to order your meals. They also do takeaways so the cafe can get very busy which may see you relaxing here a little longer on the weekends however the coffee is definitely worth the wait.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful including when we (yet again…) spilled our milkshake. This cafe would be amazing for sunny day mother’s group catch-ups or if you’re looking for a no stress eating out experience with babies and little kiddies. Just remember however that this is essentially an outdoors cafe so maybe not so amazing for rainy days.
