The Secret To Frothy Monkey's Awesome Espresso Drink Revealed

Frothy Monkey in Nashville was recently recognized by USA Today for serving one of the nation's tastiest iced coffee drinks. Here's a quick video that shows how to make the steamy version, which includes house-roasted beans, milk from a local dairy, chocolate and a bit of banana syrup.


This Music City hot spot also earns big brownie points for doing something rare in the coffee house culture: It puts a laser focus on an extensive food menu, which runs from breakfast and weekend brunch to wine pairing dinners. The owners also recently bought a bakery, so the pastry case is extra gorgeous these days and sandwiches are made on house-baked bread. Don't you wish more coffee places would take a cue from Frothy Monkey? Are you listening Starbucks?
