Love the atmosphere, but the food was tasteless and over-priced. I was so surprised to pay over $26 for two sandwiches, two bags of chips and two iced-teas for lunch. I also dislike it when I'm asked to tip at the register by the person that is taking my order. If you are running a restaurant where you order at... More

So in full disclosure, I am friends with the owners of this cafe. I ate here with a group of friends from work. The food was exceptional and beyond just your normal choices for sandwiches. I had an ambrosia chicken salad sandwich. It tasted great. The portion size wasn't giant, but it was sufficient and I followed it up with... More

The coffee is robust in flavor so state your preferences in strength when you order. They also give to charity on certain days. Lots of room to sit and enjoy.

If you're looking for a place to get a great coffee or hot chocolate drink, the Steaming Cup is your place! We love their coffee and they have a great lunch menu with unique sandwiches and bakery. Come for the coffee, stay for the great atmosphere with live entertainment on certain nights.

It's been a few years since my last trip to Waukesha and I've missed the sandwiches and friendly atmosphere here. We both had The Bomb with our own tweaks and it was yummy! The customer service was excellent as usual.

I am lucky enough to live within walking distance to the Steaming Cup. Everything I've had has been delicious, especially the breakfast sandwich. The pulled pork sandwich is also one of my favorites (I could actually go on and on about how great the food is.) The Toftes have done an excellent job running the Cup since they took over... More
