You have to be prepared to wait if you get there at peak hours, but the funky atmosphere and experience are worth the wait. The food is classic diner, with a southern flair.

The coffee cup is one of Pensacola's oldest restaurants still in operation. The walls are adorned with pictures of old Pensacola and everything is exactly as it has always been including the original counter and stools. They operate from early morning breakfast through 2;00 PM every day except Saturday where they close at 1:00 P.M. Closed on Sunday. You can... More

We recently had a delicious breakfast at the Coffee Cup in Pensacola. The service is great and the breakfast menu is delicious with standard fare cooked to order including Bacon, eggs, pancakes , waffles, and grits. Prices were very reasonable. We will definitely return! While we were able to be seated immediately, space is limited and there may be a... More

If you are visiting Pensacola then a stop at the Coffee cup is essential. They have the fluffiest omlettes and the best grits in town. They are open for breakfast and lunch with daily specials. The biscuits are also wonderful.

I am going to tell you that this is a MUST visit while in the area. In business since the 40's in the same space...and for a reason. Do NOT miss the biscuits. The bacon, eggs, and sausage gravy ain't too shabby either!!!

Great local breakfast choice. Old school charm with a warm family feel. You have to give it a try sometime. Nothing fancy but good old fashioned country food...like it should be prepared. KEEP IT UP

Great, local restaurant with a laid-back atmosphere. You won't go away hungry. Try the Nassau grits! I don't know where the name came from, but they're good!

First time visit. We asked the waitress for recommendations and she said everything is good so we ordered the sausage gravy biscuits, grits with cheese, Nassau grits, corned beef hash, a fried egg and wheat toast. Everything was underwhelming. The Nassau grits cannot compare to specialty grits offered at other restaurants. The "sausage" gravy had 1 crumble of sausage on... More

It has been a year since my husband and I have visited this wonderful little restaurant, and we absolutely cannot wait to go back. Unfortunately life and work have been busy, so I've just now had a chance to really take the time to review. But I think it says a lot that even a year later we talk about... More
