Anything you order at Cafe Cups is excellent! We dine here a lot, but they have daily specials so there's always something new to look forward to. Fresh caught seafood excellently prepared. Plus more. Need I say more? Recommend that you make reservations.

We had a lovely meal here while in Homer. Everything was fresh, tasted great. It's a small place, though, and when it's crowded, it can feel cramped and there aren't a lot of servers. We have to say, though, that my husband and I, serious foodies, especially dessert-wise, had what we think was the BEST black bottom peanut butter pie... More

I do not understand how in the world this restuarant is not in the top 2 or 3 in Homer. I have been there at least 2X a year for quite a few years. I have never had a poor or even just average meal here. If I don't feel like something off the main menu the specials are always... More

We went to Café Cups based on the recommendation of a local. We were warned that we might have a wait without a reservation. We did end up getting a table fairly quickly but were there early enough to avoid a long wait. It is a bit crowded as the tables are fairly close together. The service was average; not... More

The three of us went there for dinner and, I must say, it the worst experience during our 2 week vacation is Alaska. Its a cute little restaurant from the outside, but the tables are really closed to each other inside. The lady that served us was probably in a bad mode that day as she was rather rude. Food...

A must go to in Homer. The oysters are great. The "diet burger" was out of this world. Crab legs were delish!

After an all day drive in the Alaskan rain, Cafe Cups was a bright ray of sunshine! We arrived early and got a table without a reservation. LUCKY! The restaurant owner seated every customer and recited the specials (that sounded wonderful) to every group. She was rightfully proud of her dining experience. The atmosphere is very "artsy", the service was... More

Had an excellent meal and then went back the next night for another excellent meal. Pretty reasonable prices for food and wine in Alaska, with an interesting menu and a very nice atmosphere.

Café Cups is NOT a coffee shop as it appears. Quirky, fun, really terrific food described in detail. Food is seasonal and very fresh. Halibut and rockfish special with a blueberry sauce, polenta and delicious quinoa for me. My husband had clam, shrimp and fish pasta. The presentation of the food is lovely. Large portions... so share and keep room... More
