Nice place on a cold afternoon

This is a friendly, warm, and inviting atmosphere to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee on a cold day. The location is wonderful in downtown Waukesha, and the service is friendly.

Went there for first time yesterday for lunch with a good friend. We met the owners (Christine? and Justin). Very friendly. Justin used to be Exec Chef at Eddie Martini's one of my top five restaurants. I ordered the "Bomb" a roast beef sandwich with caramelized onions, etc on a Cabatta roll. My friend had the Prime Rib Sandwich -... More

Over the past six years I have stopped to work on my sermon for Sunday. I love their mochas!!! I have had a number of delicious cinnamon rolls and an occasional soup or sandwich. Steaming Cup is my regular stop when visiting my son and his family.

Steaming Cup is a favorite lunch spot for me. There is a nice selection of hot sandwiches along with a refillable mug of good coffee.

The Steaming Cup has the most unusual and tasty sandwiches you have ever tasted. Coffee of the Day along with several coffees and teas are offered. There is a Tea Room in the back. When in Waukesha I always go here.

I was closer to the Steaming Cup than I was to Starbucks so I popped in. Just a strong black coffee and a tiny fruit pastry was delicious and a very pleasant ambiance

While visiting a friend in Waukesha, we decided to do lunch at the Steaming Cup. I understand that it is under new management, but they are doing a wonderful job of keeping it the way people have enjoyed it before. We went outside and sat at a table to enjoy the weather. Our food was brought to us by one... More

Great, casual, local owner place to eat. Owner just retired but very carefully selected the new owner so it can only be as good or as better. Nice sandwich choices. Great pie!

Several newspaper articles announced the recent change of ownership of Steaming Cup after candidates interviewed for the opportunity. Last night I got to meet them, and I can see their potential to continue the traditions that have made Steaming Cup a friendly place to stop in downtown Waukesha for great food and great coffee and much more!

The coffee here is outstanding and the food is superb, but the thing that is most special about this little coffee shop is the ambiance. It's a fun place to meet friends, bring the kids for board games or to enjoy lunch and soak up the local atmosphere!
