Great hipster breakfast place

I had a great breakfast on a Sunday morning. It was the first hint of crisp Autumn air. I had the french toast, a friend had the steel cut oatmeal, the setting was a friendly one in which you could sit back and visit with friends. A hipster vibe that one would find in Austin or Portland.

I was heading to Nashville on January 23, 2016 for a concert that night and hit up Frothy Monkey after reading some stellar reviews for the place here on Trip Advisor. The winter storm hit the day before so pretty much everything was covered in ice and snow. After driving around about 10 minutes to find a parking spot (surprisingly... More

Went in New Year's Day. The line was out the door however well worth the wait! I got an omelette with gluten free bread that was amazing AND a gluten free muffin also very good. Multiple cups of the house holiday roast coffee that were very good. If you're willing to wait in a chill atmosphere to order and for... More

I haven't lived in Nashville full time since 2003 and every time I stop for a visit, I discover new areas. On my most recent trip home, I discovered the "12 South" area. While waiting for nearby Sprinkles Cupcakes to open, I wandered over to the Frothy Monkey for some breakfast. I was not prepared for what I found. A... More

This is the perfect place to meet an old friend and catch up on life. The night we went the service was a bit slow, which normally would be a negative (took nearly an hour to get food) but since we were not pressed for time it really wasnt a huge deal that night. There is a bar/ coffee area... More

My wife and I ate here for lunch. I had waffles and she had a sandwich. We were both very pleased with the food. We also enjoyed our latte and mocha.

Came here several times during our 3 days in Nashville, mainly because we were staying in the 12South area and were given vouchers to use for breakfast (or whatever we liked) here. The coffee was great as was the breakfast - the omelettes were really good with your choice of fillings. We did call in on a rainy afternoon for... More
