The food isn't great but the Coffee Cup is a tradition. You HAVE to go at least once.

I grew up in Pensacola and first went to the Coffee Cup back in the 80's. Not much has changed. The restaurant is still a hole-in-the-wall and the bathrooms are scary, but this place is a landmark. You have to go at least once. The servers can be great or grumpy, depends on who you get and... read more

Went on a Saturday morning around 9 and it was packed and had to wait a little while. Perhaps the food would have been better if they weren't so busy. Perhaps not. Just your average down home breakfast food. I honestly would have preferred Waffle House. Sat at the counter and got to watch two staff members get in a... More

Great breakfast food served by a friendly staff. Make sure to go early on a Friday if you want French toast as they turn the fryer over for fish around 11am.

Every time we visit family in Pensacola we hit Coffee Cup! Good down home cooking! Best cooked down grits I've ever had! Full menu with some of the best desserts ....

We went here for breakfast. The waitress was less than pleasant the whole time. It was as if she was put out by us being there. At the end of the meal we were waiting for our son to come out of the restroom. Our youngest was stacking the creamers and the "gentleman" who was taking names at the door... More

Wanted to check this place out during my visit based off of TA reviews but it was closed. Too bad I guess I'll be checking out a different breakfast place

This restaurant has been serving up good food almost forever. Now that there is so much competition in the business there are not waiting lines to get in. They still have agood food for a reasonable price

2 years ago, we were on our way to Disneyworld and got a recommendation for Coffee Cup. We've been raving about it ever since, so this time, on our way home to Texas from Destin, we left the resort early and went a different way just so we could eat at Coffee Cup again. The breakfast here is outstanding!! And... More

Take a step back in time when life wasn't so crazy and everyone in such a rush. The Coffee Cup is a historic piece of Pensacola. Country cooking at it's best - the grits and biscuits are better than you will find anywhere. The gravy is also something to write home about (remember when writing letters was the thing to... More
