Good Brunch but BUSY!

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!

This is a trendy coffee shop that also has an earthy feel. The food is delicious and can cater to gluten free dining. I liked the atmosphere and went for breakfast both days I was in Nashville.

This was a busy place on a Friday morning. You order at the counter and find a table. The indoor patio was sunny and warm on a cold winter day. The eggs and bacon were perfectly done and I enjoyed the homemade jam, too. Definitely try the bacon!

Great atmosphere, nice people, amazing coffee. Never had a Monkey mocha before but I liked it! The food was great too. I can't remember which sandwich I had but the woman taking my order suggested it. Take their advice, they know what's good. I loved the little touches. The table numbers for receiving the food were so cute, they had... More

Could not believe how unfriendly the staff was. I wanted so badly to love the place, as the downtown location has a gorgeous space. From the time we entered and were told we couldn't sit down until all 7 of us waited in line and ordered until we waited over 40 minutes for various ladies' meals, we were treated very... More

This place definitely has a coffeehouse vibe with most patrons on a device of some sort. Staff was friendly and helpful. You order at the counter and they bring it out to you. Large place with two floors, draft beer and wine selections as well. I had the Gail salad and three bean vegan soup. Both were made in house... More

Six of us headed to the Frothy Monkey for breakfast Sunday and were disappointed. Although we were in line together to order, mine and my husband's meals did not arrive until after our friends had completed theirs. In fact, we had to have ours boxed to take with us.. No apology was offered. The eggs and bacon was fine, the... More

Had chocolate cake and a snicker doodle cookie with a very good cup of decaf house coffee. Not normally a coffee shop kind of person but this one was much more laid back than the franchise places

Very hipster place - anyone over 25 will feel old and out of place. Prices make Starbucks look like a bargain. My daughter and I got small hot chocolates to go, and they were SMALL and $3 each. Average taste- nothing special. Way overpriced. The barrista had no common sense - if you have hot drink in a paper cup,... More
