I got an iced chai latte. It was delicious. They also sell it bottled. They offer coffee, tea, food, and more. There are a few areas for seating and two single restrooms. It was a great place to relax and the staff were engaging.

We visit Nashville every fews months. This was our first time dining here and we will be back! The food is great and the wait staff very friendly. It's a few blocks from broadway but worth the walk!

Wow! If you want to go to a hip and trendy place on 12th street in Nashville go no further. Great staff super friendly, coffee is amazing, breakfast was amazing. Doesn't matter when you get there it's a wait on a Sunday morning. Outside and inside seating. Great for families, friends. Love this place.

The food is great and the service is as well. Had breakfast here twice while we were in Nashville. Prices are very reasonable as well.

The coffee and beer options are good but the Breakfast is great. The Bacon is to die for any day. I have been there twice and they just know how to cook the bacon perfect. Hope to order some of that Brand and try at home soon. My children love this place for the coffees. They live nearby

My husband and I have heard from many people we have to try Frothy Monkey. We love 12 South so we picked this location and we were not sad. First, I love anywhere dog friendly and that was a fun, welcoming site as we walked up - many owners and their four legged friends. We got there about 9:15 and... More

I enjoyed a breakfast here - they were very accommodating allowing me to substitute more veggies instead of the meat and cheese for my omelette. I liked that they had gluten free toast, but it was a bit stale. Cappuccinos were great, service was amazing. (we had several very helpful servers!)

The first time I went to Nashville two years ago my mom and I went here and fell in love with the place. Specifically two items, however... the drinks (they had a peppermint something that was very good), and most of all the cowboy cookie. It makes the whole Nashville experience that much better. On our most recent trip (I... More

Being a new arrival into Nashville and the US, it is pretty hard to judge where the bar is set for local standards. Was looking forward to trying Frothy Monkey as lots of people had said it was a fun place to go. My coffee was great (apart from the chipped cup) but the food was really disappointing. No attempt...

Spoke with other guests that enjoy completing a punch list of every specialty drink offered. Sounds like fun! Cool atmosphere - Busy - but worth a visit.
