Monkey Tail Cafe is one of the newest addition to Pantai Indah Kapuk, where countless cafes and restaurants lie. Located right across Bermvda Cafe, Monkey Tail is the cafe that is not easily to be missed. The place itself is quite spacious. The ambience here is nice with its high ceilings and its modern decor create a beautifully clean aesthetic. It is airy and uncramped.
It has lots of different seating options, private or shared table, low or high table, indoor or outdoor. I like how they arranged the seating and I love the spaces between them.
The upstairs seating area is very packed and has a small outdoor area for smoking.
The menu consists of the usual breakfast options such as Egg Benedict, Pancakes and Belgium Waffles, but if you want some Indonesian cuisines, try out their Chicken Bumbu Bali. Sounds delicious.
Brioche Scrambled Egg Smoked Salmon IDR 60k
The dish was simply scrambled egg and smoke salmon, served on a toasted brioche bread. The scrabled egg? Nicely done and spiced. The smoked salmon? Tasted good and well seasoned. Nevertheless, it was a dish with simple ingredients.
Aglio Olio Spicy Italian IDR 55k
The aglio olio was cooked with spicy Italian sauce and served with shrimp. Besides shrimp, you can choose for tuna or chicken. The selections of pasta were spaghetti or fetucine. This was my least favourite dish.
Triple Chocolate Melted IDR 50k
Is it better than Cork and Screw’s? Well, it is so hard to decide as both are delectable. Left to right the flavours were milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate. My favourite was definitely the milk chocolate. The melted chocolate was not sweet so it will not make you sick of chocolates. This was indeed a light and fluffly dessert, which was nice to be enjoyed, especially with the vanilla ice cream and milk sauce. Upon slicing, the inside was really melting.
The Belly Settler IDR 50k
It was an extremely hot day so I got the Belly Settler, which was perfectly refreshing. It was a combination of carrot, apple and kale.
Hot Chocolate IDR 30k
The Hot Chocolate was just okay. Anyway, it was a cute simple presentation.
Piccolo IDR 35k
A really nicely brewed coffee. A strong coffee taste, but not too strong.
To sum up, I would recommend this cafe to anyone wanting a great place for brunch. Extensive menu items, delicious coffee and a spacious place are the appealing things of this cafe. This place is worth trying.
