Frothy Monkey’s 12 South location is one of the city’s most popular coffee shops, open from early morning to late at night. Several separate rooms, plus patios, give locals plenty of seating in this retrofitted house so that they can relax and enjoy a cup of Joe. Frothy Monkey, which now also has shops downtown, on 8th Avenue and downtown Franklin, is known for its better-than-coffee shop food and its responsibly sourced coffee. Then menu is filled with gluten-free and vegan choices. 

Directions and Parking

The 12 South location is definitely the most social of the outposts, so this is the place to convene with friends before or after a hike. There's a small parking lot in the rear of the building (access from the alley), and there is often street parking in the neighborhood.
