Mere moments before hitting the road to head home during our first trip to Nashville, we stopped in the Frothy Monkey for some coffee...and ended up hanging out for 45 minutes. Coffee was tasty, muffins delicious (try the blueberry honey for sure!), and atmosphere was festive and fun. All the staff were very nice and we would have stayed longer... More

This is a counter order, self-seating place. The food was ready quickly & was decent, but it is pretty expensive for breakfast.

I LOVE this place. Their lattes are fantastic. I have run into a few celebrities while here as well. Their food is great as well. You have to visit this place if you are in Nashville.

If A. You are not a hipster, and B. If you like decent coffee A line out the door would lead you to believe this place is fantastic. They messed up my order(basic hot chocolate) and gave me a latte. My boyfriends iced mocha tasted pumpkiny??? Both coffees were gross and this place was a waste of money. We ended... More

A colleague and I were in town and wanted a truly good cup of coffee to get our day started right and we did not want to hit up Starbucks. If you're in the area, go here. There is a good vibe, cortado is spot on and the pumpkin scones will have you coming back for more.

Had a bit of time to kill whilst in the area so thought I'd partake in a beverage and hang out in the Frothy Monkey. Love their choice of teas! Love the vibe. And the staff are friendly and helpful. Atmosphere is very chilled. And to top it all the music was (must have been!!) chosen for me personally!! You... More

A quick stop into the Frothy Monkey. We had iced tea and coffee, but saw a lot of great looking food passed by. It is in an old house and has a funky atmosphere. Will be back when we visit 12 south again.

We ate here a couple of times on our recent Nashville trip. My wife and I enjoyed all the meals. Simple, but each dish had a little twist to make very enjoyable.

We went here on a Friday morning and it was packed!! We didn't have to wait long to order though, which was nice!! You pick up a menu at the door and place your order at the counter. If you order food, you simply find a table yourself and they will bring it to you. We almost couldn't find a... More
