Yummy lunch

Lots of mixed reviews below, but our visit was delicious. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. Homemade tomato basil soup was delicious and the panini's were perfect. Our party of four each had a different panini. Prices were also very reasonable. No complaints here. A nice spot... read more

We stopped here for lunch and ordered an Asian chicken salad and a pesto chicken panini. After what was a shockingly long wait for such a simple order, we were served what was one of the most disappointing meals I've ever had. The salad had cucumber that had clearly been frozen or that had gone off and was completely inedible,... More

I didn't know there were so many types,of coffee. Mine was a little strong (I couldn't even pronounce the name) but the barista (coffee guy to most of us) helped me through it. They could open a little earlier..I had to wait for them.

No crema. Harsh finish. At least it was hot. But otherwise disappointing. The after taste was earthy, not coffee/espresso flavored.

We had the pleasure of wandering the Grand Traverse Commons on October 11th and 12th and stopped at Cuppa Joe both days. Their scones are creative, MOIST and delicious! The staff is always so delightful. We experienced Gabriell M, Matt B and Aleks B while there and learned more about construction at the Commons and just chatted with very friendly... More

HomeBoy and I were about to get the keys to our new TC residence and wanted to celebrate by getting a quick coffee and breakfast for the ride there. For whatever reason, HomeBoy fixated on the indoor seating area of the coffee shop and parked rather than went through the drive thru. The girls inside were very friendly, but very... More

Typical coffee house attitude,or maybe we're not cool enough to be here. In typical fashion I'm going to pile on a bad review.... They have a "place order at counter" system. Cool, but if we sit down without being aware of this you could hold the snobby attitude and point this out politely...maybe your an aspiring drama siren...well done, btw,we... More

Awful, hot and smelly. Took 45 min for a grilled cheese, Greek salad and diet coke. Cost $18. Guys had no clue what they were doing. Cannot recommend, there are other better, cheaper places in town. Must be they cater to the folks who work around there. If they didn't have that customer base, they couldn't make it.

Today I had yet another great coffee experience at Cuppa Joe. I've worked in coffee for many years, traveled for coffee, and can't live without it. Pleasant, easy going atmosphere and friendly people make this a nice spot to visit, but the quality of the brew really sets it apart from run of the mill espresso joints. Knowledgeable baristas, great... More

Cuppa Joe accomodated a last minute group of 35 people for lunch. Great service, AWESOME food, very fast. Highly recommended. They have the best coffee and smoothies! Their chicken cherry salad is yummy.
