Best cafe The Hungry Monkey in wollongong for 2016

Double espresso on White Horse has some nice cherry to start becoming more cocoa. Cold brew came with ice and was rather mild in flavour - would have been more flavour as it warmed but then the ice would melt and dilute the flavour.

A surprise find in Kiama. Packed and unpretentious. Good basic cafe fare. Great coffee that packs a punch.

Have been here a few times. The coffee ( White Horse Coffee) - espresso on the single origin, and the long black on the blend, both excellent. Great vibe. Caring, friendly staff and great cafe menu. Can be a bit crowded on weekends but there are good reasons for this! The number 1 choice in Kiama.

Never fails to impress. Christian has built up such an unreal standard and it is expressed through his staff members, he must be unreal to work for, staff absorb and recycle his knowledge and enthusiasm and have taught me a lot about coffee I didn’t know, I thought I was quite knowledgeable myself until I met these guys. Niri in particular, always friendly, always so passionate and thorough with every cup I’ve ever ordered, sit down or takeaway the attention to detail is like no other, keep it up guys, 10 years next year!! Kings of the coffee trade, hats off!! Well done Christian Lovatt. You’ve set a standard that’ll be hard to match as the area grows here.
