Located on the South Coast of New South Wales, The Hungry Monkey is an award winning boutique cafe and licensed venue with some of the best burgers we have ever tasted. The delicious food and drinks started cooking in 2015, with the opening of the Kiama cafe, and grew in 2019 with a new cafe opening in Berry. Open 7 days a week for breakfast, burgers, super shakes, coffee and so much more, you can enjoy The Hungry Monkey any day of the week.
Kiama is a gorgeous seaside location, about 2 hours south of Sydney NSW. Famous for its attractions such as the Kiama Blowhole, its beautiful beaches, market shopping, and food and wine scene, it is the perfect spot for The Hungry Monkey cafe. There are so many activities to be enjoyed by locals and tourists in the area, from water based fun such as fishing and surfing, to fun on land including rainforest walks, golf courses and shopping. The Hungry Monkey Kiama can be found at 5/32 Collins Street, just look for the winking monkey!
Berry is the second location, a small country town found just outside of Nowra NSW. It is loved by many for its history, charm, scenic beauty and amazing local produce. With heritage listed buildings, stunning wineries and award winning restaurants, The Hungry Monkey cafe fit right in. After the success of The Hungry Monkey Kiama and its title of ‘Best Business on the entire South Coast’, owners Jack Alexander and Taylor Hudson chose to expand in 2019 and open a second cafe in another gorgeous location. The Hungry Monkey Berry can be found at 23 Alfred Street. Once again, just look for the winking monkey!
