Cheeky Monkey Deli's wide, open space of bright, white tiles, red & glossy white walls, huge fireplace, chalkboard menus and an eclectic collection of “frame within a frame” artwork of Andy Warhol prints, comic book covers, record album covers and vintage black & white images welcomes you with open arms and huge smiles from the staff! There are no deep fryers hiding in the back making it very easy to enjoy the amazing aromas drifting from the kitchen, even after 14 months in business.

My friend, Beverly, was back in the City and we decided to return to one of our favorite casual evening eateries for breakfast. This was our first visit for breakfast BUT will not be the last!

Nick, our energetic and extremely friendly server, was spot-on with a recommendation - the seasonal quiche. Today, it was mushrooms, brie, and tidbits of roasted chicken in the fluffiest egg mixture. All this goodness was resting on a buttery homemade crust - the lightest and flakiest crust I have eaten in some time. Nick mentioned that they serve and incredible andouille sausage. He was right. The side of andouille sausage made locally in Cannon Falls MN has a snappy skin that explodes with flavor. The lean sausage was surprisingly juicy; I'd expect nothing less. The delicious dark roasted organic coffee from Equal Exchange was a never-ending mug of happiness.

Their slogan "Meat & Drink" is so fitting. Aah. . .another fantastic meal and a perfect way to start the day!

Mmm... Mmm... Mmm...
