The latte I ordered was absolutely perfect and the blueberry scone was delicious. The staff was extremely friendly and quick. Wish you were in my town!

I always stop by Cuppa Joe when I'm in Traverse. Really good rich coffee and a neat location in a former drive up bank. Actually the coffee is uniquely good and unlike other places...very close to what you get in Seattle..the only thing they could do to make it really great is add a candied coffee bean on top of...

This is my favorite place to get coffee in Traverse City. I usually splurge and get a latte, but the dark roast is good too. I would never order a light roast, so I can't comment on that. Drive thru service is awesome. When the line is long, the servers do come out to take your order so your coffee... More

Excellent coffee, tea & light food. A favorite for many years; friendly service & easy, drive-thru access off Garfield at Front St. Only a couple blocks from Bryant Park for a nearby picnic in the shade overlooking the West Bay.

Stop at Cuppa Joe on our way out of town. We like our coffee bold and this was not that. Only drank about of quarter of the 16oz size. Don't need to go back on my next trip to TC.

It's a good cup of coffee in the heart of TC. It's a must stop if you like a dark roast, cap or late.

Stopped here before hitting the road back to central Michigan in hopes of quickly grabbing drinks and bagels. The word quickly was something that this establishment didn't fully understand. It took my group of four twenty minutes to get simplistic drinks and bagels. The bagels were very delicious, however they were out of some of the varieties. I got an... More

Thank goodness for Cuppa Joe drive thru on 8th and Garfield! I am a mother with a baby that doesn't want to have to get out of the car to get a good cup of coffee. Cuppa Joe's coffee has such a unique and surprising flavor. I have had multiple drinks there and all are excellent.

Hit their drive through on the way out of town last weekend and got a mocha breve with only 1/2 of the mocha and it was perfect. Yummy, creamy, yet good strength coffee with just a touch of chocolate sweetness. I am going back up north this weekend and I am definitely stopping by to get another one.
