The scrambled eggs and bacon are absolutely delicious! The hash browns are also good. Less one star as coffee was burnt.

Loved this busy cafe located in a row of historic cottages in Kiama. We ate outside in the sun for lunch 2 days ina row. Excellent service and the cous couscous salad with chicken is to die for. Green juice also great. Highly recommend. NB:...v v busy on weekends and may have to wait but worth it. The QR code is on the menu, so check in v simpleMore

Great little restaurant, good location and great value for money. The staff were efficient and friendly. They are obviously very popular and we had to wait a few minutes for a table but it was worth it. Had both indoor and outdoor dining in a...local heritage area. Highly recommended.More

Dropped in for lunch to this buzzing, very busy Cafe to find they have no services NSW QR code for check in. On request t we were referred to their website, but thus is just not good enough. Customers around us hadn't checked on when...asked.More

Called in yesterday on our way home to the Central Coast for Brekky and after placing our order received our delicious breakfast but no drinks..we waited and waited and also approached two of the girls that work there and mentioned we didn’t get our hot...drinks..our meal was well and truly finished and we were still waiting..the drinks came out with no apology which was a shame as the cafe is really nice..I found the customers ordering take away got their orders first.. Anyway it was disappointing even though the ambience was lovely and the staff friendly. Great Customer service is such a winner in restaurants and cafe so maybe this cafe needs to take a bit more care with every order 😁More

We visited the Hungry Monkey on a Wednesday which happened to be their burger night with all burgers at $10. We tried the bad boy, southern fried, pulled pork and the Royale. The standouts were the first two which were generous and full of flavour....However what would have elevated the burgers more were if they had heated the buns so the burger was a consistent heat.More

We wanted a table for 2 and the wait was only a few minutes. My daughter had the Açai bowl and I had the Eggs Benny. Both dishes were fresh and tasty. I loved the concrete laundry tub outside the toilets. We had one growing...up.More

Made a pretty advanced booking and were made to sit with kids on the cold wet deck no options given. Pretty disappointing considering there were two empty tables inside. Pretty sure they like to fill the deck to make it look popular.

Our party of 8 went for mum’s birthday dinner and the staff were just fantastic. They kept the drink offers coming, timed everything perfectly and went above and beyond with accommodating our cake and photo requests. Thank you, Hungry Monkey, will be back soon 😊
