Welcome to Frothy Monkey!
At Frothy Monkey, we believe we’re better together.
We’re Nashville’s local all-day cafe serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner with a focus on community and genuine hospitality. Whether you’re a neighbor or visitor, we invite you to join us for a cup of coffee, brunch with friends, or to top off the day with dinner and drink special. Through sustainably sourced coffee and ingredients, we aim to provide a safe and welcoming environment that can nourish our guests and our community relationships.
12South is the original location of Frothy Monkey. This cozy bungalow welcomed its first guests in 2004 and has maintained its charming indoor seating, while expanding outdoor space to include a beer garden. This location is nestled between historic homes and the bustling commerce of the growing 12South district.
At the original Frothy Monkey in 12South, guests are welcome to dine-in with full-service wait staff at indoor and outdoor tables in the beer garden or outdoor bar. Please see the host stand to be seated.
Our dining rooms are open! Seating capacity may be limited in some cafes, but all locations are open. Safety protocols and updates are available on our COVID-19 Updates page.
Guests are welcome to order at the counter for to-go coffee or food. Come in for a latte or signature drink before strolling the neighborhood or heading to work! Food items, drinks, and fresh baked goods from BAKERY by Frothy Monkey are available to go.
