Found the jewel of the city. Loved it. Hot tea, cranberry cream cheese, to dye for sandwiches. A nice little unique shop.

I love Steaming Cup! I especially love the Turtle Mocha! The decor is fun and eclectic. There are separate seating areas that are typically more quiet if you want to have a more in depth conversation.

I usually go to the Steaming Cup just for a coffee. This weekend we decided to try them out for breakfast! It was wonderful. Their service is great and the place itself is small and cozy so sometimes there is a wait for a table, but usually not too long. We both had breakfast sammys with bacon. They are so... More

Great coffee shop. They are very busy during peak hours, line out the door almost. It is a cozy atmosphere and my 5 year old boys love going there to eat and mostly have hot chocolate.

Lunch prior to book club. Yummy soup followed by coffee. Friendly staff. Plenty of seating although the restaurant was busy.

I heard a lot of really great things about the Steaming Cup, but my experience was less than great. Both my husbands and my meals were not good. The atmosphere is great though as they have local bands come in and play. This restaurant is great for coffee and listening to music, but the food is less than appealing.

We stopped here before bowling on 11/19/16. The night was miserably cold, and we were happy to hop indoors. We were immediately greeted with music from a local band that was playing some great swinging songs with catchy rhythms and fun harmonies. Definitely was not expecting that, but we thoroughly enjoyed it! The employees were all very friendly and smiling,... More

We went here for a early dinner and was able to sit and eat immediately. I am usually not a sandwich person but ordered the The Bomb sandwich.(Roast Beef). Very good sandwich, also had the egg salad sandwich on wheat. I wish they would have told me it was toasted. The bread was terribly hard. Overall was a good experience.
