All About Frothy Monkey in Downtown Nashville
One of Music City’s Original Neighborhood Coffee Shops
Today’s visitors to Nashville might not know it, but there was a time when there weren’t many coffee shops in town! In 2004, Frothy Monkey became one of the first coffeehouse concepts in Nashville. The first location opened in 12 South and has been a staple in the community ever since. There are now five Frothy Monkey locations spread across Nashville and nearby Franklin, Tennessee. Find the downtown location at 235 5th Avenue North in the Arts District!
At the heart of Frothy Monkey are the local ingredients used to create an array of delicious, original dishes. The chef-prepared menu features a host of breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner items in addition to the usual coffeehouse standards (pastries and other treats). Brunch is served every day until 5 p.m., so you’ll be able to indulge in Frothy Monkey specialties anytime! There’s also a kids’ menu for the little ones. If you’re hungry for more than just a pastry, be sure to try the biscuits and gravy, an artisan cheese plate, or a braised beef sandwich. Pair your food with a rosemary honey latte for the ultimate experience at this local favorite!
Finally, don’t skip Frothy’s craft beer, wine, and cocktail selection. This is the perfect place to spend the day if you’re here on business. Start the day with a robust espresso beverage, get some quality work done, then end your afternoon with a glass of Merlot!
