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.

You will find the perfect spot for a family meal, remote work, or relaxing Happy Hour at Frothy Monkey in the Nations. We opened this 3500 sq. ft. location in 2017. Once home to the Belle Meade Hosiery Mill, our expansive space still features original posts, beams, floors, and brick walls. This space’s high ceilings and natural light provide a fresh and airy vibe, while a full bar of spirits, wine beer, and coffee options grounds the space with expansive stone surfaces.One hundred and fifty flexible seating options including bar seating, booths, and community tables can accommodate all of our neighbors dining needs.

Take a peak outside and you’ll find it hard to miss local art like Lee Estes on the Nations Silo, Centennials’ Patrick Swayze mural, and the naturally beautiful sunsets to the west.
