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.

“Very nice breakfast place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Consierge in our hotel recommended this place for breakfast. They had huge selection of different types of eggs Benedict which were very good. I had a muffin which was very big but nothing to write home about. Service was very friendly and efficient. Would recommend going there

“Came back after the first visit because it was so good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Brunch on Sunday is crazy busy. We are at the bar and had great food and service. Returned for dinner and the ambiance was quieter and more relaxed with the same great service and food. Must have the "O" cake for dessert! Great variety with pasta and fish specials each night.

“Nice place for brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

I went there for brunch and ordered my favourite: eggs Benedict with smoked salmon. It was a big portion, and there was too much salmon in my opinion. The hollandaise sauce was a bit too mustardy but I have to say I'm very picky about this dish as it's my absolute favorite for brunch. My friend ordered some eggs with bacon and it was delicious.
The service was effective and nice. The atmosphere and deco is very nice. The only thing is that we were by the door and it was a bit cold when people came in.
Overall a nice place to have brunch, very cosy.
