Great place, amazing coffee, lovely breakfast and brunch dishes. Waiter service dinner after 5PM possible. An afternoon beer is also an option, especially on the outside deck. Friendly staff
Fast, fresh, friendly, that's how I'd describe what you get at Frothy Monkey on 12th Avenue South. I stopped in and got the Ned sandwich to go. The best sandwich I've had in a long time.
"Italian herb tofu, hummus, cucumber, sprouts, red peppers, spinach on toasted multigrain $8.50." It comes with round tortilla chips and fresh homemade salsa. Lunch was excellent but I was disappointed with the chi tea late, a little bitter for my taste but other coffee drinks I've had there are excellent.
super friendly service and delicious food- prices reasonable given how popular the place is... love that they have prosecco therefore mimosas on tap... all day!
Went to Frothy Monkey while waiting to get seated at a nearby restaurant. Enjoyed a good chai tea latte, and the service was very quick!
A great place for drinking high-quality (if overpriced) drinks, ranging from hot chocolate to fancy coffees to wine. There are also limited food options, and comfortable corners for chatting and relaxing.

The Frothy Monkey, located in the heart of 12th Avenue South, is everything you want your neighborhood coffee shop to be. And then some. It’s clean, cozy, efficient and eclectic; overall, it’s a very comfortable place to spend an afternoon.
As far as food and drink go, I have to call out The Frothy Monkey here a little bit because I would assert it’s actually more of a café masquerading as a coffee shop than anything else. I know that will make the baristas shudder with anger, but I’m sorry: if you want your coffee to be the main attraction, you’ll need to fire your chef and go back to serving the standard microwavable blueberry muffin other coffee shops push as “food.”
As coffee shop fare goes, the menu is pretty extensive yet very affordable. For just over $10 I got a full sandwich, a cup of soup and a side of chips, and I topped that off with a solid Chai Tea Latte for $3.35. The sandwich was “The PMP”, a popular choice that features prosciutto, mozzarella and provolone with basil, mayo, and avocado on toasted sourdough. The prosciutto was salty and perfectly portioned, and the natural creaminess of the avocado and mozzarella balanced the sandwich in a satisfying way.
The soup of the day was Cream of Mushroom, and it was smooth, tangy and garnished with pieces of sautéed mushrooms which gave it great texture. To be honest, after that, I really didn’t even care about the chips (which were tortilla). Actually, I don’t even think I was supposed to get chips, and I’m pretty sure they gave me a bowl of soup instead of a cup, so go ahead and add “generous” to the heaping pile of compliments I’m doling out to The Frothy Monkey staff today. Finally, there was the latte: it was piping hot, not overly sweet, and finished with a good kick of spice. But as I’ve already said, this show was seriously stolen by the goodness of the grub.
