Great place for delicious coffee and tasty breakfast or lunch. We got a picnic lunch to go for our trip to Monhegan Island which worked out great.

I'm a photojournalist traveling up the Maine coast, visiting a friend in Boothbay Harbor. I'm originally from Maine and don't consider myself a tourist. So, whether that is a valid reason for this review or not, I was not pleased with my experience stopping into the Red Cup Coffee House. I felt the obligation of buying something small to work...

I'm sorry you felt obligated to buy something for the use of our "free" wifi. I'm also sorry you didn't place your order at the register( like the sign says) but instead helped yourself to the piece of pizza with your bare hands and placed it on the counter that money had been also placed on all day(there was no...

Stopped by here w/ family on vacation and ordered a red eye, mocha latte, vanilla latte, & chai tea latte and all were really good. Service was great and great atmosphere, saw several people buy cookies & sweets which looked really good, fairly busy late in the day, but wasn't made to feel rushed or rude. Great place.

I got an iced coffee. Was excited to see that they offer simple syrup, as sugar does not always dissolve in cold coffee. Delicious!

My friend and I stopped in for a nice hot cup of tea. It was busy, but we were able to get a table. There is a nice little play space, if you have kids. The staff was great. I ordered a chocolate croissant, not realizing it was filled with a nutella type filling-didn't care for that. But overall, nice... More

Service was friendly. Coffee was spot on! So happy to choose between almond and soy milk. Vegans don't usually have such a luxury!

This coffee house is filled with "regulars" and all the staff-and the staff will remember you and your order quickly. It is a wonderful coffee shop atmosphere with tables, a bar and some comfy chairs. A few additional tables and a bench on the sidewalk outside. The coffee drinks are very good I thought the breakfast sandwich was great--grilled sourdough... More

Every summer we come to Boothbay, and I look forward to getting my morning coffee at this great cafe. It's full of locals and the staff are super friendly. The coffee is delicious -- I like it iced. Also awesome: the breakfast sandwiches and salmon bagel (featuring Ducktrap smoked salmon). The pastries are hit or miss -- all baked onsite,... More

This is one of those fun, quirky places where you order at the counter. It was fairly full, with both locals and tourists, but efficient. I ordered a breakfast panini, which I assumed was going to be thoroughly hot, but that's not how it turned out. The bread was warm but not really hot and had only the faintest grill... More

Great Local Coffee Shop! This is a great place to sit and chat with friends. Don't forget to decorate a shingle with markers while you are there.
