I decided to try the Special of the Day (eggs, spinach, basil, sweet potato, sausage). It was an excellent choice.

Went expecting to grab a quick cup of coffee, had no idea the breakfast menu was so extensive. My wife and I both had omelettes that were excellent. Service is fast and the staff is so friendly. Great breakfast spot!

If you're in the health and organic foods group, then this is the place for you. Personally, the coffee was just okay (they charge for refills) and the bagel/egg sandwich was nothing to write home about. Maybe I'm just too old to appreciate a place like this, but I didn't see anything that would cause me to go again.

This became out favorite coffee and breakfast place in Nashville. Even bought beans to bring home. (Which delivered more awesome coffee experiences). The Honey Rosemary Latte was an amazing coffee experience. I'm a coffee snob and I was so happily surprised! My counterparts became addicted. Often buying a before and after meal coffee latte - they were that good .... More

I had multiple individuals recommend Frothy Monkey and after having an early breakfast and coffee, I can see why. In fact, this breakfast was much better than another I had at an extremely popular restaurant the day before. I had a fantastic (build your own) omelet and the Coconut Cream Latte. I was also happy to see they have a... More

On our trip to Nashville we came to the Frothy Monkey for breakfast each day. Good choice, excellent coffee and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Downside is that it can be very busy with lots of people taking up tables for four and working in computers, but worth waiting for a table.

On a recent trip to Nashville we made a point of visiting as many coffee shops as possible. The Frothy Monkey was one of our most enjoyable finds. On this particular day we were looking for more than coffee. We each opted for different versions of their oatmeal. Huge portions and creatively served. Do you self a favor and include... More

We'd heard of this place so we were eager to try it. The lattes are fantastic, and the chai latte smelled like a cinnamon roll. Very good. We went on a Monday afternoon and it was packed. Inside was very loud, but we found a table outside which was much more relaxed.
