Welcome to Frothy Monkey!

At Frothy Monkey, we believe we’re better together.
We’re Nashville’s local all-day cafe serving breakfast through dinner with a focus on community and genuine hospitality. Whether you’re our neighbor, or a visitor, we invite you to join us for a cup of coffee, brunch with friends, or to top off the day with dinner or a 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.

Frothy Monkey in Downtown Nashville is just north of the hustle and bustle of Broadway. This location is surrounded by historical landmarks like Woolworth’s, rich artistic culture in the Arcade, and lots of Nashville spirit just down the street at Bridgestone Arena, The Ryman, or Tennessee Performing Arts Center. Our cafe’s unique shotgun layout was developed to include the original brick walls and tile or wood flooring, as well as a new mezzanine level peeking out over the dining room and 5th Avenue.
