Coffee with Monkeys


In some restaurants, the term “kid-friendly” actually means a sheet of paper and a cup of broken crayons. But sometimes it means something completely different.
Two Monkeys Coffee & Tea House in Barrhaven is kid-friendly in the truest sense.

Owners Rob Kay and Jill Sheppard designed Two Monkeys as a place for caregivers and their children to eat, drink and be merry, as well as a place for “regular people” to pick up a coffee and a scone. And it’s all done with a clever division of space.

On first view Two Monkeys looks like many other coffee shops we know, complete with comfy chairs and soft lighting. So where are the bright colours? The toys? The high chairs? The crushed crackers scattered on the floor?
