Super health and also delicious

Love the protein breakfast which is tasty as well as super nutritious. Sitting outside on the sidewalk is fun. The staff is hip and friendly.

i'm vegan, but my family isn't, so it's always a pleasure to find a place to eat that caters to both tastes. The Coffee Cup was it for breakfast! I had an awesome marinated tofu, rice, beans, and broccoli dish while my daughter had berry pancakes and my husband had a breakfast enchilada. The quality of the food matched the... More

Small restaurant so there is usually a wait. But it's well worth it! Delicious flavors, reasonable prices, generous food quantity! Highly recommend! Service is dependent on server.

Great little local spot. Amazing food, good service and cool atmosphere. We were 5, all ate different dishes for breakfast and all loved them. The rosemary potatoes are delicious!!! Generous mimosa, yum!

Good food. Fun food. Lots of different breakfast options which is good to see. Even my 5 year olds pancakes were made interesting by adding fruit and a few swirls of strawberry and blueberry sauce. That said, the tables were wobbly and the chairs totally uncomfortable. Not to mention, people were packed like sardines and sitting right next to the... More

A bit of a wait on a Saturday around noon but you sign yourself in and hang out in the beautiful weather. Delicious crispy potatoes topped with tomatoes and green onions was my favorite part of my meal. The eggs were great as well. The rosemary bread lacked salt (weird comment maybe but it almost tasted like nothing) and despite... More

The breakfast tacos were to die for, super refreshing yet perfectly filling. The pesto scrambled eggs were delicious. The rosemary potatoes looked fabulous on our neighbors plates. The GM and waitress were super sweet and welcoming. If we had more time we would have returned for lunch. Well worth the trip from Boston!

Hubby had an omelette and tea. Ate every bite. get a table outside too. nice people watching and plenty of shade unless you want to... More

The ambience is 1950s throwback, but that's not why you're there. The food is, and it makes you want to come back for more. Diverse menu. Our omelets were excellent. Rosemary potato sides were perfect. Service was good, and menu tempts with many interesting and tasty options.

Around a month ago, my family and I came here for breakfast on a Saturday morning. It is a tiny little cafe, with very little seating inside and a few tables outside. There is no hostess, and you have to write your name down yourself on the waiting list. I tried to catch the waiters eye to ask him approximately... More
