Busy and eclectic

The atmosphere is relaxing, busy and it seems like the entire city visits there. It's on the corner of beautiful downtown Waukesha. The food is excellent, people buy as many meals, as they do coffee drinks. Well worth the stop!

One of my favorite places to eat. Great menu, good variety. I like that there menu is unique. It can be a bit of a wait to get your food, especially during lunch time. This is understandable, being a small, family business. Worth the wait, though! Large variety of tea choices. Love the internet access, board games, and newspapers available... More

Slow service Standard bagels, croissants, biscotti. Sweet pastries. Warm weather outdoor seating. Downtown Waukesha, nice for a break to have a seat and watch the world go by. On Friday nights (during summer) they are open and sometimes have music. Not an unpleasant way to spend a Saturday morning or early evening Friday night.

I travel to Waukesha frequently for work and always make a point to stop here for breakfast. The coffee is really outstanding. The oatmeal for breakfast is also really great. It has cranberries And walnuts and is just lightly sweetened with brown sugar. They also serve it with a dollop of whipped cream but I typically go without the cream.... More

Great place for coffee and excellent soup and sandwiches, but breakfast is when I love going to the Steaming Cup!

The owners went above and beyond our expectations for the bridal shower tea we had here last spring. The entire experience was wonderful. From the special vintage china in the intimate Tea Room to the delicious food (with special attention to our various food allergies and sensitivities) and personalized tea presentation - we could not have been more pleased. They... More

I have been at this corner restaurant several times. There are numerous light menu items and of course, coffee. I have been there when musical artists have been there and when the Waukesha Freeman newpaper sponsors "Friday Night Live" during Friday evenings in summer which include local talent performing free on various street corners downtown. One site is commonly outside... More

You can grab a great cup of coffee. The staff is friendly. I love that is walking distance to The Clarke Hotel too.

I love this local restaurant! It is my favorite coffee shop but they offer more. The coffee, tea, sandwiches and salads are very good!! The atmosphere is quaint and you will admire the paintings on the wall of local flavor. Sometimes the restaurant features 1-2 local musicians. During late Nov and through out Dec there will be carolers. Check out... More

I love this coffee shop! It is not your typical coffee shop! It is very unique and eccentric with a 60's twist to it. It has awesome food and great coffee drinks/teas as well as fantastic desserts! They have games you can play if you so chose to do so. On occasion, they will have a person play guitar and/or... More
