Walk into Frothy Monkey on any given morning, and you’ll see a slice of the 12 South neighborhood: moms with strollers, students and freelancers on laptops, couples squeezing in a breakfast date, and a bachelorette group recovering from last night. Whichever group you fit into - or if you just need caffeine - you’ll immediately feel at home in this house-turned-coffee-shop. There’s a long menu of coffee drinks and local teas, along with homemade pastries, and more breakfast and lunch options. Frothy Monkey also serves a nightly dinner menu with beer, wine, and cocktails.
