I'm sorry but I really don't know what all the fuss is about with the Frothy Monkey. I'd heard people rave about the place and the coffee so of course I had to try it. I was so, so disappointed. The coffee is average at best, nothing special and not particularly well made. I went up to the counter for... More

I have only ever had coffee or beer there, but they serve food too! There are several locations, I have been to the one in Franklin, 12 S and Downtown. 12 S is probably my favorite one. Some outside seating and a nice homey feeling inside. They have a good local beer selection and make great coffee.

My husband and I decided to try this place for breakfast/brunch. There was a line out the door, but it wasn't too bad. We ordered and set out to find a table. The bad thing, in my opinion, is that they don't give you a table. We were lucky and caught someone leaving. We waited about 20 mins on our... More

The line was at the door, but surprisingly it didn't last long. They don't give you a seat, so it's every man for himself, which if it's busy, it can be like something out of Thunder Dome. Unfortunately we got lucky and they lost our receipt, so we waited about an hour before we finally got our food. Obviously I... More

Came here with my mom for breakfast. She had an omelette and espresso that was customized just for her. She loved it. I had an omelette and we shared whole grain pancakes. Will definitely come back. Extensive coffee/drink menu.

A very nice and super busy coffee shop. Good expressos. Friendly staff. We didn't eat here, but the food coming out the kitchen looked good

We ate breakfast here a couple of times using the gift cards provided by our B&B. We had no complaints! I had the architect omelet and my wife had the oatmeal. Both definitely great! We also bloody mary's and mimosas. Cute location and close to other shops. Recommended.

I stopped in on our way home to use our gift cards. Service was fast but Sunday mornings are not the time to go. Very busy. Our drinks were good and the food was fine as well.

Love this stand alone house turned into a coffee house. Very cozy. Two story seating area. Service can be a slightly slow to order although turn around is very quick. Take time to read their signs and posters for additional local activities. Pricey coffee and treats so keeps the caffeine addition under control.

Thank Cheryl D
