What can I say. This is a must do when in Pensacola. Once your in those double doors, you will have stepped back in time, and you are in for a treat. The "chef" is manning this little grill and getting it done. Whether you order a delicious Omelette with your favorite fixings in it or something as simple as... More

The Coffee Cup is a Pensacola institution. Great food and friendly service. Try the Nassau grits, they are a house specialty.

My husband and I saw this coffee sign when visiting my sister at her Air B&B in Pensacola. We walked over early one morning to get coffee. We had to stay for breakfast at this simply friendly, good home cooking cafe with a no fuss vintage feel. We sat at the counter on red chair backed swivel stools and had... More

Always a line, always good food. The coffee is great, the food good home-cooking. The wait staff, though busy, always gets the job done. Our coffee cups were never empty.

We have been here several times and love the old school breakfast, location and staff. The Nassau grits are good, coffee is decent and breakfast will fuel you for the day. But I never think of stopping here for lunch. I was in the area and looking for a simple burger and fries. The are open to 2 and the... More

Roll up! Get your eggs and meat and enjoy with proper American coffee. Open till 2 in the afternoon. Fast service as you'd expect. Nassau grits are weird, red in color as you'd expect from tomatoes and Tabasco and a slight vinegar taste is decidedly odd but intriguing. Other than that, no surprises. Enjoy!

If you're handicapped you enter thru the kitchen. Worth the trek. Just a basic coffee shop with great food. The Beignet French toast is to write home about.

Great breakfast! There may be a long line, but it's worth the wait. Try their Nassau Grits if you're adventuresome. Closed on Sunday.
