Whether you’re missing the amazing coffee culture and bites from down under or just looking for a great place with a 10/10 ambience to eat at, check out Jimmy Monkey — an endearing cafe and bar that aims to bring a uniquely Melbournian experience to our sunny island.
What’s gonna catch your eye first will probably be the uber IG-worthy Jimmy Monkey neon sign placed strategically in the cafe and bar just where you’ll be able to see it through the little window on the side of the building.
As you step into the space, you’ll find yourself surrounded by a charming interior filled with dark wood, grey and marble accents — as well as quirky little pops of colours from the fun signboards and decor scattered around the cafe that gives it all the personality.
Here, you’ll be able to enjoy hearty Aussie brunch favourites and other comforting bites like the Cheesy Vegemite Soldiers (S$14), Roasted Pumpkin Tartine (S$16), Baked Maple Chipotle Chicken Wings (S$18) and more. Of course, we can’t miss out on the classics like the avocado toast which is very aptly named The Hulk (S$16).
If you’re a bit of a coffee snob, you’ll love that they serve their coffee with no-frills — just straight up aromatic coffee that gets the job done like espresso (S$4) and their Jimmy Monkey Filtron Cold Brew (S$7). If you’re someone that prefers something a little sweeter, you can also opt for their rich and creamy mocha (S$6).
They also have a small retail section where you can purchase the coffee they carry so that you can start your day right everyday even when you’re not visiting the cafe (and they’re packaged adorably with the Jimmy Monkey mascot!).
For those looking to be extra indulgent, the cafe and bar also serves three kinds of sinfully boozy milkshakes (S$18) — the Violet Crumble (vanilla ice-cream, butterscotch schnapps, honey and topped off with Violet Crumble), the Dom Pedro (vanilla ice-cream and black nikka whiskey) and the Toblerone (vanilla and chocolate ice-cream, chocolate syrup and frangelico).
The next time you’re looking to indulge in some truly Aussie brunch and coffee, check out Jimmy Monkey!
