The Monkey Bar Café: A Dog-Friendly Alfresco Café in Greenslopes

If you are craving for coffee and wondering where to could go with your kid and dog tagging along, then you might like to try The Monkey Bar Café at the rear side of the Annerley Junior Soccer field at 98 Victoria Terrace in Greenslopes.

Now on its fourth year in the business, The Monkey Bar Café is the perfect place for you to sip and enjoy your coffee whilst watching your child play because it is directly situated next to a lovely playground.

With sturdy outside seating shaded by trees, the café is well-known among locals because of its location as well as its range of food and drinks.

It is most popular for its richly-flavored Genovese coffee, but there are other drinks available like milkshakes, iced coffee, mocha, ginger beer, smoothies, and iced tea.

Milkshakes come in delicious flavours such as Belgian chocolate, strawberries and cream, or vanilla bean. For smoothies, you have a choice of mango, mixed berry, banana, or groovy green.

The café has an unpretentious menu. It offers all-day breakfast and lunch made from locally bought produce in support of local businesses.

Breakfast and lunch options include sliders and shoestring fries, buttermilk pancakes with fresh bananas, maple syrup, hazelnut dust or Nutella cream, bacon and eggs on English muffins, veggie deluxe paired with chunky avo, or spicy bruschetta.

Also, the café offers puppycinos and treats for the furry pal that you brought along.

Like their menu, The Monkey Bar Café is an unassuming place with a very relaxed atmosphere. It is the perfect place on a sunny day to catch up with a friend, the go-to place after a soccer match or training to refuel your kids, or a place where you can have a business breakfast meeting with your children and pets beside you.

But you should remember that it is basically an outdoor café so it may not be so amazing on rainy days.

The café is open seven days a week from 6:30 am to 1:30 pm.
