Our new fall menu

Posted by on October 4, 2021

We are so grateful for you and your support, particularly over the past year and a half. You showed up through it all and we can’t thank you enough. Climbing out of the pandemic has been and still is the biggest challenge we’ve tackled, and we’ve learned that taking care of each other is *the* most important thing. 

This time of adjusting, pivoting, and readjusting has given us a reason to reflect on who Frothy is and how we will grow in the years to come. We have added table service to the Frothy experience as well as online ordering and more outside seating. And we recently announced that we will be opening in Birmingham and Knoxville in the coming year and we are so humbled and excited that we have the opportunity to grow! 

Starting today we are making some changes to our menu in an effort to create less waste in our kitchens and with the goal of delivering you delicious food with less wait. We’ll be shaking things up a bit by saying goodbye to some long-time favorites, but you will also find some delicious new additions to the menu such as Brioche French Toast, Purple Potato Hash featuring Porter Road Butcher Andouille sausage, a couple of new omelettes, and Avocado Toast. We have also added more local and regional farms and purveyors because when you know where your ingredients come from you can taste the difference.

Change can be both hard and exciting and we are looking forward to seeing you soon and hearing your feedback. Welcome to Frothy! View the menu here.

Frothy Cold Brew Launch Party at Jackalope

Posted by on August 9, 2021

You may know that we launched our cold brew on draft and in cans earlier this year. But, did you know that it is locally roasted, brewed, and canned right here in Nashville? Jackalope has retrofit their brewery to help us bring you the tastiest coffee, and they are now serving it on draft in their taproom!

Come celebrate with us and our friends at Jackalope on Wednesday, August 11th at The Ranch taproom (429B Houston St., Nashville, TN 37203) from 3-5pm. The first 25 people who order a cold brew will get a Frothy Koozie!

PS- Masks are encouraged in the taproom and they have a fantastic outside patio to hang out on.

Frothy Monkey is taking over the Urban Standard space in Birmingham!

Posted by on August 3, 2021

It’s official! Frothy Monkey will be taking over the former home of Urban Standard in the 2nd Ave North district of Downtown Birmingham, AL (2320 2nd Ave N). At Frothy Monkey we have been fans of both Birmingham and Urban Standard for a long time so when Tom (Urban Standard) reached out to us about reopening the Urban Standard space as a Frothy Monkey we jumped at the opportunity.

“I opened Urban Standard 14 years ago as an extension of my home and a place where people could gather and exchange ideas and inspiration, said Tomasz Wrzesien, Owner of Urban Standard. “I was introduced to Ryan Pruitt, Managing Partner of Frothy Monkey by a mutual friend back in 2019 and after spending time getting to know him and Frothy Monkey I knew that they would be a wonderful fit to take over the Urban Standard space and to carry on our mission to serve this neighborhood and community. Please give a warm welcome to my friends at Frothy, you’ll love them!”

No firm date has been determined for opening, but we are currently working with Creature on the space. “Excited for Frothy Monkey to open their first Birmingham location and bring life back to the Urban Standard space that played a pivotal role in the momentum of downtown revitalization,” says Mike Gibson, CEO and CO-Founder of Creature. “Their unique menu, style and focus on creating a personal experience is going to kill it downtown.”

We will post updates when we get closer to opening. We can’t wait to get to know you #Birmingham!

Frothy is coming to Knoxville!

Posted by on June 28, 2021

Hello, Knoxville! After a few years of spending time in Marble City, Frothy Monkey is working toward opening a Downtown Knoxville location of our all day cafe in the Kress Building on Gay St. in 2022. No firm date has been determined for opening, but we are currently applying for permits and working out a few final details before construction begins. There are many unknowns at this point, but we will post updates when we have them.

Reusable Cup Discount

Posted by on June 2, 2021

Every little bit matters when it comes to sustainability, and we’re hoping that you can help us cut down on the use of disposables. We use sip lids for our cold cups to eliminate the need for a straw, and for guests who bring a reusable cup into our stores they will receive 15 cents off of their beverage purchase. We have some great reusable cup options available for purchase online or in our stores if you don’t already have one. For those of you who are making the effort to reduce waste we thank you!

Colombia Claudia Samboni: Roaster Series Coffee

Posted by on May 28, 2021

We’re kicking off our Roaster Series line with our first coffee: a Colombia Pink Bourbon sourced and roasted by our own Daniel Lopez. The Roaster Series is a project dedicated to showcasing coffee producers and the innovations they’re making to drive the coffee industry forward. Colombia has long been regarded as one of the premier coffee-growing countries in the world, and what better region to kick off our Roaster Series than a country known for its consistent quality.

This coffee was named after its producer, Claudia Samboni, whose team at Finca Las Nubes has developed a truly exquisite coffee with this Pink Bourbon. We love its lively notes of strawberry and dark chocolate, with a cherry acidity and rich body. It’s beautiful and sweet and deeply complex, and we’re so excited to be featuring it.

Check out our Roaster Series page to learn more about this project!
