About Us

About Us

We are always hiring for our Frothy team! {For more details visit our job board }

We feature creative folks using local ingredients to prepare original dishes served in a cozy and approachable atmosphere. Frothy Monkey has been a staple in the Nashville community since 2004. We were one of the first coffeehouses in Nashville and one of the cornerstone businesses to open in the transformed 12th South Nashville neighborhood. The chef driven menu offers breakfast, brunch every day until 5, kids menu, lunch + dinner with expanded beverage offerings including coffeehouse standards as well as craft beer, wine + cocktails.

We’re a neighborhood cafe, and a proud member of the neighborhoods we serve. You can count on Frothy to deliver quality, creativity, and approachability in everything we create. Our relationships with farmers and others who care about where ingredients come from is at the center of who we are.

Check our social media posts for daily specials that accompany our regular menu items. We host Wine and Beer dinners throughout the year and also a weekly happy hour called Wine Down Wednesday.

We have Breakfast through Dinner locations in several neighborhoods in the Nashville (12South + Downtown Nashville + The Nations + East Nashville), Franklin (Downtown Franklin), and Chattanooga, TN (Southside) areas. BAKERY by frothy monkey bread, pastries, and cakes are made in Nashville, TN. Frothy Monkey Roasting Company began roasting our own coffee in the summer of 2014.

On this day of honoring Martin Luther King, Jr., we have to wonder what he would say about what little progress we’ve made when his words still ring so true.
