No Monkey Business at the Frothy Monkey

I had read reviews of the Frothy Monkey on TA and decided to check it out while in Nashville. It was outside of the DT in the 12th S area, but as i had a rental car it was not too far nor hard to locate. It is in an area that has other restaurants and small shops that are... read more

But this one was terrific. It had a nice energy about it, it was busy without being packed, the clientele was delightful, and, oh yes, I enjoyed my coffee immensely. It was a lovely way to start the day.

Very busy, long line, hard to find a table. The coffee and food are typical coffee shop. Many people on laptops, so they don't change tables over, those people hang out too long. As a visitor I wanted a quick coffee & bite to eat to start the day. We had gift cards from our B&B, so we wanted to... More

Love this place. Great menu and food and delicious coffee. I also bought a couple of delicious pastries. Setting is very neat, very urban and earthy.

Family of 6 had meal for $62. So... Budget away for good trout dish and nice toasty chicken quesadilla . Kids pasta is large rigatoni and a mild marinara. Kids chocolate milks well liked and local dairy producer. Nearby bar scene made all our kids (under 12) a little uneasy as we walked about 6:45 pm up tr streets to... More

You may not find a seat, so get your eating and drinking while standing talents brushed-up before going. Besides that, the place is super cute. The breakfast burger with arugula, egg, cream cheese and chives on a bagel had me singing. The coffee comes in a great big ol' mug and is roasted tastiness. Heads up, don't go in your... More

We went there because we wanted to visit a hometown coffee shop. We totally recommend ordering a Latte made with Rosemary Honey and Cinnamon. It was delicious and I would go back just to get it.

You can order very quickly but it takes a while to get your food for Saturday brunch so allow yourself some extra time. Waffles, Pancakes, and California were all great options and the bacon was spot on! Pretty much all of the choices were less than $10. I'll definitely be back!

Great coffee, specialty lattes, but what is surprising is great FOOD! Not only great bacon, grain pancakes, but great sandwiches and the best chips and homemade salsa! Come on a sunny day and sit outside! Must visit this place on 12-south!
