Food was great and well priced. It was perfect for a sit down breakfast that didn't take all mornining. Coffee was really tasty! Very cute inside. Love the atmosphere.

Always wanting to keep it local while on vacation, I decided to skip my usual morning go to, (Starbucks) and try the FM, while in Nashville. Without reservation--I'm going to applaud the Monkey for serving me the very best non fat, no whip, Mocha I have EVER had...then I bit into a delicious donut muffin & the day somehow managed... More

Based on rave reviews from folks I trust I've visited this location and the one in Franklin a few times each and have not been impressed. The coffee is consistently mediocre or worse. The staff has been okay at best and rude normally. Even though they occasionally have gluten free items, no one can tell me if they're dairy free... More

My mom and I walked from our downtown hotel to this place twice for breakfast/brunch. The food was fresh and delicious. My cappuccino was pretty and it tasted fantastic. I would definitely return.

I made it my mission to try as many local coffee houses as I could on my first trip to Nashville. I give Frothy Monkey two thumbs up, and a promise to return if I can on my next trip! First of all, I LOVED the atmosphere inside and out, I felt comfortable bringing my kids and my stroller and... More

Went here for late lunch. The food was decent and even the atmosphere was nice. However, for a "coffeehouse" the coffee was horrible! The first cup tasted so bad I took it back (which I rarely ever do). Since they had two types of coffee brewed I asked to try the other coffee. I thought maybe the coffee somehow would... More

This is your typical nashville coffee house. They have fantastic coffee and brunch items but you will almost always be greeted by a line. I am not really into waiting 20 minutes for a cup of coffee but if you are a serious coffee drinker this is your spot. People are friendly and laid back atmosphere. If you want to... More

If you are expecting Starbucks type of drinks then this is not the place for you. If you want an authentic macchiato then you should try it. Cookies were very good. Good atmosphere and friendly knowledgeable staff. Coffee snobs would enjoy.

You walk up, you order and you pick a table! The food was fresh and delicious and it had the coffee house community vibe! I really enjoyed myself there!
