Local charm

Small little coffee shop with an incredible array of breakfast options. Try the tamale breakfast or the jalapeno scramble. The coffee is good and strong.

Don't be fooled by the looks or size of the Coffee Cup. So worth the wait! Had breakfast there three times during our last visit to La Jolla. Went for breakfast again this visit. Even though the special we had previously was not on the menu they made it just for us! That is service! The Rosemary potatoes are wonderful!... More

The best menu for breakfast and lunch , in all of La Jolla. It is a tiny Resto ,in the heart of La Jolla Village. It has kept its 1966 charm, except for the menu. The menu is quit amazing, with very healthy items, or regular American breakfast entree's., Asian infusion & Mexican favorites. Fabulous service, one is greeted and... More

We LOVE Coffee Cup! We come at least twice a month for the delicious, plentiful food and the service. They always keep the excellent coffee coming and have great specials if we want to try something different. Best of all, I'm happy to eat here both on the days where I want something that won't sabotage my efforts to eat... More

From the outside (and inside), this looks like a little dive breakfast diner. Don't let the decor fool you! Because, if this is a dive, it's the best dive breakfast food I've ever had, seriously. I ordered the avocado scramble with no tomatoes and changed it to all whites. A large plate filled with food arrived and everything was incredible.... More

Went there twice and had two different experiences. The egg or breakfast dishes like poached eggs and pan cakes were very good while Mexican style breakfast were not so good. The Mexican style dishes were not as flavorful and it felt piled on. They do make great coffee and that was true both times. The service was also very good.
