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

A visit to Frothy Monkey for breakfast was a great start to New Years Eve. The food was fresh,the wait staff friendly and obliging. The portion size was enough,not overlapping the sides of your plate like many American restaurants. Hopefully they are opened tomorrow.

Coffee lovers from Texas, my wife and I visited here. She ordered iced hazelnut latte and I had their specialty drink... banana mocha! Both were perfectly made. Espresso drinks at their finest!

Sunday breakfast, The California, which comes out quick enough, 2 broken yolked, overcooked eggs (wasn't given choice on how I might like them), on dry toast with a whisp of sprouts, feeble 3 slices of avocado, decent salsa, but...for $8? Seriously? And you stand in line to place your order, which I'm fine with, but unwilling to pay a premium... More

We had a delicious breakfast here - fresh food including great gluten free toast and homemade jam - as well as excellent coffee and tea selections. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff.

Frothy Monkey is the only place I've found in Nashville that makes decaff drinks that I enjoy again.

Come here for really delicious classic American breakfasts (wholewheat pancakes mmm), huge mugs of lovely teas (I'm not a coffee drinker so can't comment on that!) and people watching - the vibe is mild hipster/wood-cabin-diner. Only downside is this place is so popular for breakfast, it can be crazy busy and tough to get a table! In the afternoons, it... More

good breakfast in the heart of downtown Nashville. The food and service were very good without the crowds in the more famous breakfast places.

Stopped in on a Friday morning around 9 am. Place was bursting at the seams! I loved it! College kids, business people on laptops, couples chatting over their steaming mugs, moms with kiddos (strollers parked outside), some studying or just reading a good book. The vibe in this place is great. A little tough to find a table and too... More
