// 04.08.22 //

It’s hard to believe that it’s been two years since we started posting these updates and we love seeing your smiling faces once again! We continue to expand our seating options as it is possible (hello, new patio at Frothy East), and both online ordering with a curbside pickup option, as well as table service are here to stay. We want everyone who spends time at one of our cafes to feel taken care of. From a warm greeting, or cooking your food from scratch, to delivering you a latte that is created with our locally roasted coffee and house-made syrups and sauces, the connections made within our walls are why we do what we do.

Take care of each other and we’ll see you soon! xoxo

// 5.14.21 Mask Update //

We can’t overstate the fact that we are so grateful for you and the support you have shown throughout this pandemic. We are aware of the CDC’s updated guidelines as well as the loosened restrictions made by our local governments.

We are currently reviewing our own COVID-19 safety policies and procedures but it will take some time to consider the impact of our decisions. Since there is no mechanism to easily identify those who have been vaccinated or who may be immune-compromised, for the health and safety of all, our staff will continue to wear masks for now and guests who are fully vaccinated are welcome to enter our buildings without a mask.

Thank you for your patience while we navigate these constantly changing factors. Stay well, take care of each other, and know that we are doing our very best to do the same!

// 06.01 Our Reopening Plan + Safety Protocols //

You WOW us every day with your support, and we are grateful. Now that more folks are starting to enter back into public it was clear to us that in order to best serve you, we needed to put more systems and controls in place. Our plan is to slowly open our buildings, so we can roll out changes effectively to provide the safest experience possible. On June 2nd, we’ll start by opening our Chattanooga location, which is already set up to be conducive to distanced flow and seating. We will add our Downtown Nashville location next for dine-in service on Thursday, June 4th, followed by Franklin on Tuesday, June 9th. Once we determine dine-in dates for the remaining locations we will announce them.

We love to be a part of your daily routines. Please bear with us because there are a few changes we have made that may seem unexpected.

After nearly 16 years of counter service, you will now check-in with a friendly masked and sanitized host. They will seat you, and then a server will take your order at your table. This will allow us to limit the number of people in our spaces, the number of guests at each table (no more than 6), and ensure that your table is sanitized and socially distanced before you sit.

Staff is required to be symptom-free before reporting to a shift. We are utilizing CDC guidelines promoting handwashing, facemasks, social distancing, sanitizing, and training staff on health measures. We will be maintaining our already high standards of cleanliness while adding more frequent cleaning practices.

We have made changes in order to manage lines, eliminate paper menus (although they will be available if needed), and cut down on other high touchpoints such as condiment bars. We have also installed contactless payment options (yay Apple Pay!).

Due to the unique features and layout of each location, the flow may vary. But, the general policies, safety changes, and high levels of service will be the same. We will also be keeping some of the products and amenities we have added in the past few months including groceries and prepared foods, as well as online ordering for curbside pickup.

Hours will continue to be 7 am – 8 pm at all locations until further notice. We are looking forward to seeing you soon! As always, please email us at frothycares@frothymonkey.com if you have any questions.

// 05.25 Updates for Nashville, Franklin, Chattanooga //

Without the unending support of our communities, these last 2+ (very challenging) months may have broken us. Thanks to you all, and one kickass team working around the clock, we are somehow still here. There are no adequate words to express our gratitude, but we want you to know that we will continue to be here for you, as you all have for us.

Our dining areas will remain closed at this time, but we are still open for take out and delivery. Our goal is for each guest who enjoys Frothy to feel comfortable and confident in their experience. 

As a small business, a family, and members of our community, we want to be part of the solution and do our part to provide and sustain jobs during this pandemic. Like you, we want Frothy to survive and thrive, and we want to serve you in the safest way possible. 

We are creating our own timeline for opening our dining areas based on the responsibility to provide for the unique needs of our staff, guests and neighborhoods. 

We are working diligently to make thoughtful changes to our operations and service in order to begin opening our dining areas in some capacity, but we are just not ready yet. As you can imagine, there are so many adjustments to be made, so please stay tuned for updates.

Thank you for your continued support, your patience, and your kindness to us and to each other.

Let us know if you have any questions by emailing frothycares@frothymonkey.com.

// 05.08 Updates for Nashville, Franklin, Chattanooga //

Due to the sudden announcement from Nashville’s Mayor about entering phase one of the plan to reopen the city, we wanted to reaffirm our decision to keep dining areas at all locations closed until we feel it is safe for staff and guests to gather in them. We will remain OPEN for curbside pickup and delivery.

In addition to that, we have several exciting things to announce!

• Beginning Friday 05.08 we will be expanding our hours at all open locations (12South, Nations, East, Franklin, and Chattanooga) to 7am – 8pm seven days a week.
• East Nashville now has a full line of beer, wine, and cocktails!
• We are launching our spring / summer menu including seasonal drinks
• We will be re-opening our Downtown Nashville location very soon (more on that later)

We will continue to innovate to stay relevant in an effort to employ more staff, and continue to offer the best quality experience possible. As we closely monitor the situation we will be carefully considering factors including the unique needs of our staff, our guests, our operations, and the recommendations of health organizations. Our goal is to invest our resources in sustainable practices as we add staff and begin the process of reopening fully and there is not an exact timeline.

Thank you for your support. We will continue to take every precaution to provide the safest possible service for our guests and work environment for our staff. We hope that you continue to enjoy Frothy Monkey with confidence. Let us know if you have any questions by emailing frothycares@frothymonkey.com.

// UPDATE Sunday 4.26.20 //

As you know, we are in a time with many unknowns and challenges which are changing day to day. In light of the communication from government officials in the past few days about plans for reopening our cities, we wanted to give you an update on what our plans are for Frothy Monkey. 

We will be carefully considering factors including the unique needs of our staff, our guests, and our operations, while using recommendations from health organizations, as well as the phased plan presented by Nashville’s Mayor, as guidance for our decisions company wide. Our decisions will be data driven, not date driven, which means we do not have an exact timeline for reopening fully.

Our dining areas at all locations will remain closed until further notice until we feel it is safe for staff and guests to gather in them. We will remain open for curbside pickup and delivery, and over the next few weeks begin to expand our hours of operation as well as our menu. We will continue to innovate to stay relevant in an effort to employ more staff, and continue to offer the best quality experience possible. Our goal is to invest our resources in sustainable practices as we add staff and begin the process of reopening fully. 

Thank you for sticking with us through this challenging time! We will continue to take every precaution to provide the safest possible service for our guests and work environment for our staff. We hope that you continue to enjoy Frothy Monkey with confidence. As always, let us know if you have any questions by emailing frothycares@frothymonkey.com.

// UPDATE Monday 4.13.20 //

We realize the times are tough and making as few trips out of the house as possible is essential. That’s why we’ve expanded our grocery offerings to include meat, produce, and other pantry staples. So when you order dinner or a coffee for curbside pickup you can skip a second stop.

A la carte grocery items are available to order for pickup within the hour and can be added to any online ordering purchase. Support our farmers and bakery while stocking up.

Butcher boxes, produce bundles, and sandwich kits are available for pickup on Tuesdays and Fridays (The first available pickup is on 4/17. Orders must be placed in advance – more details here).

Family style meals that serve 4-6 are available by ordering by 3pm a day in advance.

We’re in this together! Be well.

// UPDATE Thursday 4.09.20 //

We are in full swing with online ordering and curbside pickup, delivery (through Postmates and Uber Eats) and lots of sanitizing. Our staff our equip with gloves and face masks and are taking every precaution to provide the safest possible service for you. For now, our Downtown Nashville location is still temporarily closed, and our Chattanooga location will be open Wednesdays – Sundays.

We realize the times are tough and making as few trips out of the house as possible is essential. That’s why starting tomorrow (Friday 4.10.20) we’re expanding our grocery offerings to include meat, produce, and other pantry staples. So when you order dinner or a coffee for curbside pickup you can skip a second stop. We will also be introducing family style meals and more grocery options. Stay tuned for details!

// UPDATE Monday 3.23.20 //

Sunday was an eventful day of updated regulations from state and city authorities (some restrictive and others quite the opposite). We temporarily closed one location to open another, and we are continuing to adapt to all of the change.  We are launching curbside alcohol sales (all locations except for East Nashville- yet) which you can add to your online order along with grocery items. We are paring down our menu in order to be more efficient and offer you breakfast, lunch, and dinner items from open to close.

We will be taking a couple of days off at our Chattanooga location to reboot and prepare to launch delivery. For now, here are our updated hours for Monday, March 23rd:

East Nashville | 7a-8p
Nations | 7a-8p
12South | 7a-5p
Franklin | 8a-4p
Chattanooga | taking a few days off

Service will be take out only with online ordering and curbside pickup during the hours posted. Our dining rooms are closed will no longer be allowing walk-in ordering. All orders must be placed online or by phone.

Thanks for sticking with us through all of this. Stay well!


// UPDATE Sunday 3.22.20 //

We have some bigger changes to our schedule tomorrow, so bear with us and please read this entire message! We are making the difficult decision to temporarily close our Downtown Nashville location until further notice and shift our focus to opening our new East Nashville location. We believe that this is an opportunity to serve a larger number of neighbors who will need access to food (and COFFEE). Don’t worry, we’re not closing downtown for good, just shifting things around a bit. In light of that, please see our new hours beginning Sunday, March 22nd:

East Nashville | 7a-8p (running a limited menu which can be viewed here)
Nations | 7a-8p
12South | 7a-5p
Franklin | 8a-4p

• We have increased the frequency with which we clean and disinfect touched objects and surfaces, including screens, tables, chairs, bathrooms, and door handles.

• All beverages are available in single use cups if requested. We will still be offering a reusable cup discount but we will not be filling guest’s containers.

• We will discontinue use of hand held menus when possible and use posted menus as well as a QR codes posted for menu access on smartphones. 

• Condiments will be available by request.

• We ask that any guests exhibiting signs of sickness not enter our buildings.

It’s our favorite time of year, and we’re proud to offer a delicious coffee that honors a tradition that’s very dear to our hearts. Day of the Dead is one of the most important annual celebrations in Mexico and Latin America, and we cherish the opportunity to help preserve and communicate the cultural heritage of Dia de los Muertos and its importance in our communities. We’re pleased to bring you an exceptional coffee from the Heart of Sierra Sur in Oaxaca, Mexico, by our longstanding partners in the Sicobi group. Beautifully balanced with notes of caramelMcIntosh applestoasted almonds, and sweet baking spices, our Mexico Sicobi is one of our most anticipated coffees of the year, and we’re delighted to share it with you. 

Mexico Sicobi is one of those special coffees that gets better every time we taste it. Now in its fifth year, our relationship with the Sicobi communities gives us the opportunity to watch and taste the efforts they continue to make toward quality and sustainability. Coffees processed at Sicobi are known for breaking the mold of the standard Mexican coffee profile. With its warm and comforting flavors, this year’s offering is essentially “fall in a cup”!

Available in-stores and online now!

We’ve been developing a relationship with the Sicobi group for six years now, and continue to be impressed with the consistent quality of the coffee they’re exporting. Founded nine years ago by the non-governmental organization GAIA, as part of its efforts to support and encourage biodiversity, Sicobi now manages 1,500 hectares of coffee plantations that belong to 500 growers in their region of Oaxaca. They select only a small percentage of the available coffee, in order to focus their efforts on developing quality and differentiating markets.

 

 

The coffees processed through Sicobi don’t fit the standard Mexican cup profile you may be familiar with. Some of them almost have the fruity character of a natural, despite being fully washed; that happens because of the natural conditions of the region, particularly the very dry landscape that creates a unique micro-climate. This year’s lot is another strong one, boasting a pleasant citrus acidity and a malty, sweet character.

About Frothy Monkey Birmingham

Caretakers of the Space

We are so grateful to be a part of the Birmingham community. We recognize the familiarity many residents have with this storefront from its long run as The Urban Standard, so it was important to us to preserve certain design and structural elements. Our goal with this space, and all of Frothy’s cafes, is to preserve the character of the building while creating meaningful spaces and new experiences for the communities we serve. 

“We were given the gift of this building with so much character.”, says Brittany Russler, Director of Hospitality at Frothy Monkey. “We have to recognize so many guests of the previous business, Urban Standard, know this space, and have wonderful memories here. There’s comfort in maintaining some familiar pieces of that history for local guests.”

Window Seating
New Cocktail Bar

Intentional + Inclusive

Frothy Monkey is intentional with the spaces that we create for our guests beyond paint and wallpaper. It matters where outlets are placed for remote work and where we have larger tables for family meals. It matters where you’re seated for a date night. It matters when guests visit Frothy Monkey and they know there is a place for them, no matter the reason.

In our all-day cafe, you’ll find a different level of service. We offer table service to everyone to connect with guests and provide the best possible experience. Whether you’re here for 10 minutes, or two hours – we’re here to make your day a little brighter. 

The Patio

We’ve expanded seating options to include a new 1,400 sq ft semi-covered outdoor patio. It is perfect for happy hour, a sunny brunch, or romantic dinner. There are a multitude of seating options like the work bar, adirondack chairs for post-work hangouts and cozy corners for catching up. Outdoor heaters and fans will help manage changing seasons, too!

Stir Up Something Fun

We hope you notice another new addition to the space – our fun and funky bar! Located at the back of the main ‘lobby’ area, you’ll see a fun play on vintage themes with milk glass fixtures and multiple patterns and textures in the tile and wallpaper. We cannot wait to serve up your favorite libations, but we are still waiting for our liquor license. Stay up to date on the status of our license by following us on Instagram @frothymonkey

Rwanda Sholi Washed & Natural Coffees

Posted by on June 1, 2022

The Abateraninkunga ba Sholi cooperative (meaning ‘mutual assistance’) was originally established in 2008 by 30 women and received official recognition in 2013. In 2014 they received funding to build their own washing station, and in 2015 received their Fair Trade certification. Today the cooperative is made up of 400 farms, 3 washing stations, and 451 members, 196 of which are women.

In 2016 the cooperative received a grant to build a community center and a health center to serve its members and other local residents. The nearest hospital is over 45 minutes away on poor roads, so services for things such as malaria, parasites, pregnancy check-ups, and basic first aid that the health center can provide are invaluable. The community center also provides education on nutrition, cooking, and gardening in order to combat childhood malnutrition.

In November 2019, members of our team traveled to Sholi with our partners at Atlas Coffee Importers. They cupped their coffees and toured one of the processing stations, a farm, warehouse, and the health and community centers and formed lasting relationships along the way. We’re excited and proud to offer this exceptional coffee that has done so much for the community from where it hails. As one of our newest relationship coffees, we are taken with its dark fruit characteristics mixed in with the classic base of spices and deep sweetness that the region is known for. Innovative thinking, attention to detail, and great growing conditions point to a very bright future, indeed.

We’re thrilled to present these two similar (but definitely different) Fair Trade specialty coffees, side-by-side. Both of these coffees are the same varietal, from the same farming cooperative, harvested at the same time, but they’ve been processed in very different ways, to give each its own wonderfully distinct flavors and attributes.

The Rwanda Sholi Washed has a buttery mouthfeel, with croissant and figgy pastry characteristics, paired with a base of spices and chocolate sweetness that the region is known for. The Rwanda Sholi Natural, by contrast, was processed in a naturally drying style, which results in a fuller, more syrupy body than the Washed.

This Natural has comforting raisin cereal flavors, topped with the airy citrus of lemongrass tea and delightfully tart and sweet berry notes. We hope that by tasting these two cups together, coffee lovers can gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for coffee processing, and also for the incredible coffees coming out of Rwanda!

New Signature Coffees from Frothy Monkey Roasting Company

Posted by on May 11, 2022

The Signature Coffee line at Frothy Monkey is getting a facelift and new additions.

Introducing two new members of the Frothy Monkey Roasting Company’s Signature Coffee line – Howler and Midshift. We can’t wait to get these two coffees in your hands or in your cup! Patience and lots of #FrothyLove was poured into the creation of these additions to the Frothy Monkey family of coffees. We’re proud to offer a new espresso roast and half caff option to our customers in our Nashville, Franklin, and Chattanooga cafes, Coffee Perks members, and to our wholesale and online customers. 

As a part of this new launch, we’ve also revamped our Signature Coffee Bag Designs and renamed some Frothy classics. French is now Brute, and Unwind is now Eventide! Read on to find out more about these exciting updates.

New Signature Coffees

Howler – An Elevated Espresso Roast

12South has been our workhorse coffee for drip, espresso and cold brew for many years. Once we started using Cold Brew blend for our kegged and canned Frothy Monkey Cold Brew Coffee, it wasn’t long before we set our sights on developing a coffee specifically for espresso. 

We started with a natural Brazil and a washed Peruvian coffee. Because coffee availability changes seasonally, the blend will change over time but retain the same tasting notes. Our goal was to create a chocolatey and smooth taste profile with subtle fruit notes. We roasted it specifically for a more balanced, approachable shot that decreases the sharp acidic and bitter notes we tasted while brewing other coffees as espresso. What we created is a smooth experience that pairs perfectly with milk. 

The roasting development for Howler took about a month, and was made in small test batches. It challenged our roaster’s and came with a lot of trial and error while we dialed in the correct ratios. These tests included experiments in blending the coffee beans pre-roast or post-roast, ratio variance, and roast time. The process was drawn out further because each batch needed rest for 5-7 days before our roasters could taste the product. 

Now that ratios are dialed in and larger batches can be roasted, we have already started serving Howler in our espresso drinks at Frothy Monkey cafes in Nashville, Franklin, and Chattanooga. If you’re a regular and you recognize the taste of your favorite 12South coffee, you may have noticed! The main difference is that Howler is less acidic, but still so delicious. Because Howler is roasted “lower and slower” it reduces that acidic punch and blends well with your favorite milk option or provides a smoother experience on its own. 

So, why “Howler” you say? Naming this espresso blend was so fun. We tried some word play with Nashville being the Music City, but things like “harmony” and “melody” didn’t fit. We played with location titles and street names and ultimately leaned into our name. So how can we use a monkey name in a cool and modern way? 

When someone threw out “Howler Monkey”, we loved it. Ironically, Howler monkeys are native to Central & South America where a lot of our coffees are imported from and it was a great way to convey the  energy espresso gives you with an expressive “howl”. Our production team members have even started “howling” every time we roast a batch.

Midshift – A Half Caff Coffee Blend

We’re ecstatic to bring a new half caff option to the line of Frothy Monkey Signature Coffees. Without sacrificing flavor and quality, we developed Midshift to offer a more low-key experience for those who want a little afternoon kick, or coffee to sip on through the whole day.

Our friends in the specialty coffee industry inspired and supported us through the development of our half caff roast. Our partnership with Swiss Water Decaf had already produced great results in our Eventide decaf roast and gave us the confidence to pursue a half caff option. 

We used our chemical-free, decaf Swiss Water Process coffee and blended it with a washed Ethiopian coffee. The bright and juicy flavor components of the Ethiopian, balanced out the darker cocoa notes from the Swiss Water Decaf. 

We combine both coffees in a 50/50 blend, after roasting and cooling them separately. This is why you may notice some color differences amongst the beans when you open a bag of Midshift. 

For the name we wanted to evoke the feeling of shifting gears, not fully slowing down, and not ramping yourself up. That afternoon coffee that will get you through the day without keeping you up at night. This coffee is perfect for the folks who are caffeine sensitive, but still want to enjoy a really tasty cup with a little more kick than a full decaf. We also found it to taste amazing with fruit forward desserts, like strawberry pie!

New Names for Old Classics

French is now, Brute!

French Roast has been a staple in the Frothy Monkey Signature line for some time now, and we couldn’t be more proud of how delicious it is. It’s perfect in its approachability and its lovely dark and lucious qualities. By renaming this roast, we wanted to ensure pre-conceptions about French roasted coffee weren’t a concern for consumers and make the bold, full-bodied profile take center stage. We aren’t changing the formula, just the name. 

Brute’s new bold, black look really represents the coffee’s flavor profile. Brute also is a little cheeky in its French reference to the gorilla, ‘la brute’, and ironically named after the “Brute” buckets we use to transfer or store coffee throughout the roasting process.  

Unwind is now, Eventide!

Don’t worry, if you were a big fan of Unwind, this is the same product! With a different name. Nashville’s favorite decaf coffee just got a little facelift. 

While taking the time to reassess the Signature Coffee line design and name, we could see a pattern emerging among the coffees. If you think about the coffee line in the context of our all day-cafes, you can see a pattern emerge for a full-day of coffee. Start your day with the Howler or 12South and get a sip in the mid-day with Brunch or Brute. Midshift is perfect for a mid-afternoon kick, and now Eventide will be your non-caffeinated evening (or anytime) sip when you want that delicious coffee flavor.

Seeing the new line together, the half caff and decaf needed a bit more differentiation, so the name Eventide was proposed. It’s a bit of a nod to nautical language for “evening”, but really a good example of when you’re in the groove, no caffeine needed, and just need a little something to enjoy during “smooth sailing”. Unwinding looks different to everyone and coffee might not fit in to that picture, so this new name should give consumers a bit more context to this friendly roast. 


We have been waiting for this day to arrive and we are proud to reveal our updated line of signature coffees from Frothy Monkey Roasting Co! We would love to hear your thoughts and welcome your feedback. Take a look at the full line up in our online store!

Local Nashville Cold Brew Coffee

Posted by on May 2, 2022

The only cold brew coffee roasted, brewed and canned in Nashville, TN.

Why is our Cold Brew So Good?

Locally Roasted Specialty Grade Coffee

No matter what you’re brewing, baking, or cooking the quality of ingredients makes a difference! At Frothy Monkey, we prioritize quality – in experience and in products. In order to bring you the best cup, we only roast and brew specialty grade coffee. This includes any of our cold brew, signature coffees, blends and specialty series coffees.

Coffee beans, just like many other food products, are graded depending on their quality. Specialty grade coffee is the highest bean classification. When coffee is graded, professionals look for consistencies in features like bean shape, size, and ripeness. The more defects in each batch, the lower grade it is given. 

Because higher grade coffee requires more care and attention to produce, we have the opportunity to build working relationships with farmers and purveyors that share similar core values, to Frothy. When sourcing our green coffee, we focus on partnering with farmers who practice sustainable farming, fair-trade practices, and unique farming or drying methods.

Locally Produced Cold Brew

While coffee is not a Tennessee crop, it is the home to the roasting, brewing, canning, and distribution of Frothy Monkey Cold Brew! Our product is the only cold brew coffee who’s entire production is done here in Nashville. Of course, we couldn’t do it without our partnership with Jackalope Brewing, who brew and can each can at their brewery right here in Nashville. 

You can find Frothy Monkey cold brew at your favorite cafe, and a participating Kroger near you! To make it easy to locate, we’ve created a cold brew locator map. Take a peek at our location pages or locator map to find fresh cans in your neighborhood. 

How It’s Brewed

The process of making cold brew coffee is different from quick brewing methods requiring hot water.  General brewing guidelines for coffee and tea suggest the higher the water temperature, the less time it takes to extract the best flavor. Because brewing cold brew coffee steeps in lower temp water, it requires more time. 

Cold Brew creates a slightly different flavor profile because the solubles from the grounds are extracted slower. Many people comment that cold brew is smoother, less bitter, and sometimes more sweet than a typical drip brewing method. 

There’s a lot of fun science involved in brewing and our Frothy Monkey Roasting Company friends are more than happy to go more in depth about the geeky, albeit cool, chemistry behind it. It’s chemistry and science, and it’s delicious!

Cold Brew Coffee is Great for Most Diets

Need to Stick to Your Diet Plan? 

Hot and Humid days call for something refreshing and energizing, but many beverage options are loaded with sugar or calories. Grab a can of Frothy Monkey cold brew to enjoy a refreshing sip without worry of breaking your diet! 

Cold Brew is naturally calorie, sugar, and gluten free, which makes it ideal for vegan, paleo, keto, and gluten-free diets. Coffee is also 0 points for Weight Watchers and fits seamlessly into those who follow a mediterranean diet.

Canned Cold Brew Coffee is a Great Travel Partner

Anywhere you can go, cold brew can go, too! The convenience of cold brew cans makes opportunities to enjoy, endless. When packed in a backpack or cooler, don’t forget the ice or cool packs to keep your cold brew fresh. Because cold brew is not carbonated, you won’t have to worry about our product going flat.


Imagine reaching the summit of your favorite hike and cracking open a can to cool down. Maybe you need something refreshing during a long bike ride or a little pick me up to hide in the stroller on a family walk. We see you parents out there! 

Coffee’s natural caffeine is a great alternative to energy drinks pumped with artificial sweeteners and flavors. Grab a can or 4-pack before your favorite activity and you’ll be ready to rumble. If you’re close to a cafe, you can always stop in for a cold brew when you dine in or to go! Because most of our cafes have a patio and are close to a neighborhood park, you’re only a few steps away from enjoying your brew in the sunshine. 

How to Brew Cold Brew Coffee at Home 

While we love seeing your face in our cafe, we understand not all morning routines can accommodate an extra stop. If you’re craving cold brew in your morning routine we can help! To stock up for the week, visit your local cafe on Mondays for $4 off 4-packs of cold brew coffee cans. You can also locate the closest Cold Brew retail partner by using the Cold Brew Coffee Locator Map!

If you want to take matters into your own hands, it’s easy to brew at home! With our Cold Brew Coffee Brewing Guide and a bag of our Cold Brew Blend, you’ll be a few steps closer to building your morning bev like a professional.

At our restaurants, you’ll find thoughtfully prepared dishes and respite filled with intention and warmth. Find “your spot”. Maybe it’s the cozy corner seat at 12South or a patio table that’s just perfect for watching sunsets. Trust us, they are spectacular in The Nations!

Your dinner dollar can go further with our weekly events like Wine Down Wednesday, Happy Hour every weekday and 1/2 off wine bottles every Friday. Locally sourced items don’t have to blow the budget, so go ahead and order your entree AND a cocktail. Order your wine, ½ off on Fridays AND your favorite dessert.

“A trip back home to Nashville is incomplete without a Frothy Monkey visit! This place is so versatile. I have so many memories studying for exams here, catching up with friends over coffee, birthday dinners, etc. The coffee is excellent, probably the best in the city. And most people know that, but what most people don’t know that their dinner menu is also incredible!!! I recommend the soups, chicken + gnocchi, and salads.

Dinner Options

Starting at 4pm, we shift to a more intimate vibe, but still meet guests where they are. Take your time. Maybe start with a cheese plate and an Aperol spritz before wine and dinner entrees. Bring a book, a game, or just yourself to rest and enjoy. You’re our priority. Whether it’s time to decompress at the bar with a friend, bring a date for coffee, or treat your family to dinner, Frothy is your spot for a safe and comfortable experience.

Dinner at Frothy is also a great option for varied diets. We know it can be difficult to entertain groups with multiple dietary preferences or restrictions. We’ve mindfully curated the menu to include at least one option for vegetarian, pescatarian, gluten-free* and vegan guests. 

Available 4pm – close at all locations except Downtown Nashville at this time. Visit our locations page for more information on specific cafes.
