Met two friends at Monty's last month for a catch-up and arriving at noon unfortunately there were no tables available, however the team sat us down in the 'waiting area' and were directed to a table 10minutes later. Friendly Team, Yummy Food, efficient team, child friendly and great coffee. Certainly recommended for a non fancy breakfast/lunch.

Stopped off for a bite to eat and a coffee and came across a really busy vibrant cafe. Lovely choices of breakfast items on the menu and everyone was tucking in.

Monty's is situated in Plymouth's beautiful Barbican area. It is small and can get crowded, but is a lovely place to sit and relax over a coffee or maybe for a relaxed breakfast. I did find the staff a little lacking in enthusiasm on my last visit; we were handed our tray of drinks over a railing rather than the... More

we just popped into Montys whilst having a walk through the Barbican, although it was busy, the staff found us a table at the back. The coffe was hot but the toasted teacake was cremated and the butter portion (note one portion) was frozen solid, and no way on this earth was that going to cover the teacake. There were... More

I am very sorry to hear of your bad visit to Monty's. If you had complained at the time a replacement tea cake could have been sent out with soft butter. We will do better next time. Paula More

I have eaten here a lot and its always lovely food and coffee and a friendly atmosphere, apart from on the day I chose to come with my family who are not familiar with Montys. I arrived early in the morning at about 9:45 on Monday 19th December, hardly any people there and wasn't busy at all, I saw my... More

Regular visitors to Monty's over the years and is a great little kids friendly cafe on the Barbican. After testing out some birthday presents on the hoe, we popped in for some milkshakes & a tea cake! Great service and massive ice cream milkshakes so two very happy chaps 😃
