Cozy atmosphere and great coffee! What else could you ask for. Lovely location away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, and just lovely coffee

Went there on Saturday and Sunday. Around 9 on Sunday and they were really busy. Our service and food was still great! Omelets were very tasty and the coffee was strong with great flavor.

Really nice breakfast here today whilst holidaying in Nashville. We are staying in an Airbnb close by and saw the yelp reviews so thought would try it out! The venue is welcoming and easy to find street parking but also noticed they provide parking at rear of building. It was very busy and we were lucky to get a table... More

This place has a few locations, I ate at the downtown venue. Large menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner and all the locals piled in at lunch. Don't miss it for great food, vibe and of course the fabulous coffee

Superchill atmosphere. Great breakfast, lunch, and dinners. Great coffee, and tea. They also usually have a great signature cocktail for brunch! Also amazing sweets (always try their cake). Its a great community place. The workers who have been there for the long run are gems. They cycle through other workers a lot - sometimes not as friendly as the longtime... More

I'm sorry but I really don't know what all the fuss is about with the Frothy Monkey. I'd heard people rave about the place and the coffee so of course I had to try it. I was so, so disappointed. The coffee is average at best, nothing special and not particularly well made. I went up to the counter for... More

I have only ever had coffee or beer there, but they serve food too! There are several locations, I have been to the one in Franklin, 12 S and Downtown. 12 S is probably my favorite one. Some outside seating and a nice homey feeling inside. They have a good local beer selection and make great coffee.

My husband and I decided to try this place for breakfast/brunch. There was a line out the door, but it wasn't too bad. We ordered and set out to find a table. The bad thing, in my opinion, is that they don't give you a table. We were lucky and caught someone leaving. We waited about 20 mins on our... More

The line was at the door, but surprisingly it didn't last long. They don't give you a seat, so it's every man for himself, which if it's busy, it can be like something out of Thunder Dome. Unfortunately we got lucky and they lost our receipt, so we waited about an hour before we finally got our food. Obviously I... More
