What a dump!, 12/28/2011

We had heard great things about this place, and showed up for Open Mic night. What a disappointment! The music is performed in an alley at the back. It was cold and raining, the only cover is... plastic sheeting. The performers were terrible (apart from one act). A young girl boasted that she had trained as a singer for 6 years, then proceeded to murder "Bobby Magee" - the worst singing I have ever heard! The coffee was okay, nothing special. Restrooms are disgusting!! I will not be back!

Beyond Starbucks, 6/16/2008

This is a great coffee shop if you want more than just coffee. They have a great atmosphere, live music, poetry reading, the works. I live close by and frequent it often.

Java Monkey

Java Monkey combines a few of my favorite things: good coffee, good conversation, and good music. This is a chill place to do some work or catch up with friends. There are plenty of cozy places to sit, and tasty treats to order. The crowd that gathers here is awesome. I love the live acoustic music & wine selection.

fun place

Right in the heart of Decatur, the Java Monkey is a perfect hangout before or after dinner. It's a great place to meet up with friends or to relax with a date. The atmosphere is very casual but not uncomfortably so. The coffee and desserts are great.

great place for live music

coffee is better than average, but the entertainment on the weekends makes it worth the trip

mmm...Java Monkey

This coffee shop is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of your favorite warm (or cold) beverage. The interior is an eclectic and artsy atmosphere. Prices are very reasonable and the staff are friendly and willing to help make a recommendation. Depending on when you go, this popular joint can get a little crowded.

Great Coffee, Relaxing Atmosphere

Fresh coffee, great espresso drinks, a wonderful veggie sandwich (with cheese, peppers and eggplant) and chocolate cake to die for! All can be enjoyed...
