Place was mobbed when we went. No tables left except outside and the seats were wet from rain, too wet to sit in. Too chaotic and loud inside without direction for newcomers. Long lines, average coffee.

A great spot for a healthy breakfast (any time of day!!) or lunch (amazing salads and sandwiches). Also a great spot for a drink after work! That's right, they serve fresh cocktails and beer and wine, in the evenings. They even have home-made gluten-free bread and Kombucha on tap<3 ! It's a great alternative to all of the hearty southern... More

This is a chain. We had breakfast at a nearby location twice. The price is reasonable, the service prompt, friendly and efficient. The menu choices are fairly wide ranging and our meals were very good both times. A good deal.

Loved it. My wife and I were on our 25th anniv. trip. We'd had enough 'south' food, and wanted a salad for a late dinner. What a great find through Urban Spoon and Trip Advisor. The Architect salad lets you build your own, and the craft beers were tasty. little pricey, but the vibe and fresh food made it a... More

Just as the Franklin location, this is a cozy coffee house. You can't beat the porch seating and the atmosphere. Coffee drinks were made well, home made hummus delicious. Just what the neighborhood needs.

We visited this cafe for breakfast twice on our weekend in Nashville because my Dad liked it so much. It was very busy both times, but the line moved fast and the fancy coffee drinks were good. On our first visit, Luke who turned out to be one of the owners, was standing in line behind us. The food and... More

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... 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.
