Hip Atmosphere at the Red Cup

My family and I enojyed breakfast recently at the Red Cup for the 1st time. I ordered a fresh strawberry scone (outstanding!) made in house with a large coffee. Service was very polite and accurate.

After shopping we had a coffee at The Red Cup Coffeehouse. A great cup of coffee and a nice spot to sit and relax a bit. Before leaving I stopped in the men's room and was amused by the two pictures on the wall. Obviously the owner is a fellow progressive/liberal. I always love find a kindred spirit.

The iced breve hot the spot on a sunny day. Breve is creamier as made with half half instead of milk. Free wi-fi, harbor view and comfy couches. Perfect layover between shopping and enjoying Boothbay.

The people who run it are seasoned pro's who run a volume business. They know their coffee and, have a great array of light foods for lunch or snacks. Best on a foggy, misty day when you need something to warm you up.

This restaurant has some of the best coffee in Boothbay Harbor. Their sandwiches are different from the burgers and fries found in many tourist areas and are delicious. There is a large variety of meals and a variety of seating options as well but seating is limited. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

We needed a light lunch/midday break. This was perfect. We love Coffee by Design's coffee anyway and the hot chocolate was good as well. Yummy pastries!

The charm and character here is contagious! We stopped in one afternoon for coffee and my husband had the most delicious double espresso and I was blown away by the most helpful barista ever who made me a decaf cappuccino with double almond milk foam, yum! Everyone here is friendly and warm from the staff to the other customers. Atmosphere... More

Nice funky atmosphere, service fine, good wifi signal, but the weakest coffee I have ever had in my entire life, and I have had thousands of cups of coffee from all sorts of places! Maybe they got distracted & never finished adding grounds when they made it?

Coffee was very smooth with great flavor. Blueberry muffin was ok. Not many choices for pastries. I would have liked to take home some of their coffee.

Had coffee and light breakfast here. The coffee was meh - OK but not what I was hoping for. We also shared a blueberry almond coconut pastry, which was OK but VERY sweet. The atmosphere was good and the service was friendly, but the food and coffee wasn't great. Glad we found a different place to have coffee and breakfast... More
