Description: The Cupping Room Cafe was established in 1977. It was originally a wholesale coffee establishment. Different blends of coffee were brewed and tasted by perspective customers. This act of blending and tasting different coffees is called cupping - hence the name The Cupping Room. The coffee tasting went so well that the owners decided to change the name from The Coffee Connection to The Cupping Room Cafe. They also decided to open the back of the store and sell coffee and pie to the local artists. The building hosting The Cupping Room is a landmark building. It was the first "tall" building in SoHo and is more than 100 years old. The high tin ceilings, hard wood floors, pot-belly stove and exposed brick walls are all part of the original setting. The Cupping Room was a home for artists and locals. Today it is still a neighborhood place where you can see the locals and the famous come together in our homey environment.

Went here for brunch and breakfast a couple of times on our trip. The food is excellent, the coffee is delicious and the service is great. The large room at the back is sunny and light, with a great atmosphere. The best breakfast we had in New York!

Perfect for breakfast or just a stop and go bite, or ice cappucino to go. The sandwiches are very good and the juices very fresh.

This was our first morning in Soho after arriving from England the day before. We were up early and at the cafe by 8am.Two other tables also arrived at the same time as us. We ordered a pot of tea each and a toasted bagel with cream cheese with a side order of bacon and eggs benedict with Canadian bacon... More

Oh my gosh, what a lush place, we enjoyed it that much we went back twice. So much choice to choose from, BUT I had the same both times, fruit salad and nuts and Yoghurt with Pancakes on the side. The portions are huge so it suited me down to the ground. Service was excellent and very prompt, totally loved... More

I had the best omelet, it was all filling consisting of mushrooms and swiss cheese, served with a delicious salad. The atmosphere was lovely, it was a sunny day and the sun steamed in thru the windows. My friends all enjoyed their selections, but I would recommend any omelet.

We visited the Cupping Room on a Wednesday evening, luckily just in time to catch the last five minutes of Happy Hour. We were particularly drawn to this place because live music was on offer. The food was good - seafood linguine and lobster ravioli from the specials menu were both very tasty and cooked well. Choice of wines and... More

Welcome home! We chose the restaurant by total random - went off the Subway at Canal Street (A-line) and we were "home". The place was crowded with locals on a painting-course and the athmosphere was great. We were served wonderful food by a very nice servant and are already looking forward to the return.
