3 Monkeys Cafe, Newcastle

3 Monkeys Cafe is located in the main strip of Newcastle and was buzzing with people.  It is rated quite highly on Urbanspoon/Zomato. Currently, it's sitting at almost 4/5 on Zomato. There aren't as many other cafes to compete with one another in Newcastle compared to Sydney so I wasn't sure what to expect.

I ordered the Wagyu Beef Burger with a side of fries ($17 above) which had double serving of smoked bacon, tomato, lettuce, pickles, aioli on a brioche bun. It was nice burger with a generous serving of bacon. The pattie was not too bad. Overall it was a decent burger compared to Sydney standards.

The chocolate milkshake below probably needed more chocolate flavouring.


I also ordered the vegetarian Corn Stack with Garlic Mushrooms ($17.5). There is also the option to have bacon instead of the mushrooms. The corn pancake-like cakes are topped with an avocado salsa and aioli. It was a great flavour combination and very tasty. A great brunch dish but a small portion for what you pay for.


3 Monkeys Cafe also has a nice range of teas if this is your 'cup of tea'. I had a nice blend of jasmin and green tea.  Overall 3 Monkeys Cafe is a nice spot for brunch or lunch if you are nearby or in the area.

Summary: Lisa's Rating: 
Food: 7/10 for Casual Dining
Customer Service: 7/10
Atmosphere: 7/10
Value: 6.5/10
