I heard that a couple of Jp’s Java’s better baristas fled to work at a new spot up on Burnet Road; Monkey Nest, so a visit was in order. Monkey Nest has been luxury outfitted for all the new money flooding into the Allandale neighborhood.
Big comfortable chairs, a fireplace and a full gorgeous remodel of the former thrift store it resides in.
The coffee was fine. Texas Coffee Traders if I was guessing the bean origin.
Free wi-fi, sandwiches, pastries and a nice patio overlooking busy Burnet Road.
