Highly recommended by a NY friend and deserving of its long history of serving locals rather than tourists. Great atmosphere. Recommend booking. Strong emphasis on local organic produce. Highly recommend Eggs Benedict with any of the mimosas. Impressive Bloody Marys too. Burgers were great. Nice walk down either 6th or 7th Avenue. Or subway.

This place is iconic. I know someone who worked there in the '80s. We booked after having a really great evening sitting at the bar there last week, with excellent live music. We even rang to check everything was okay on the day as it was a special occasion and we were told all was good and our Reserved table... More

My daughter and I ate breakfast here and the food was delicious. The waitress was a bit of a pill. She could have smiled a bit more and been pleasant. It was on the pricey side. $40 with tip for 2 but that's what pay for breakfast in the city if you can't find a Greek diner close by.

My family of four and I had a lovely time at the Cupping Room. It's just a block off broadway and in a beautiful part of SoHo. They have gluten - and lactose free options, which is an added bonus!

Found this cafe on yelp and thought to give it a shot. Had a little trouble finding it even though our Uber driver told us we had arrived. We wandered around a little bit until we finally found this little gem. The food was decent I wouldn't say it was the most incredible meal I've eaten but the place it's... More

Every time I come to New York then I have to visit this place for breakfast. It's just delicious and I can't knock the service or food over the few years I've come to this city. Once again the food was fresh and hot with coffee strong and amazing. A perfect start to any day.

Description
The Cupping Room Cafe was established in 1977. It was originally a wholesale coffee establishment. Different blends of coffee were brewed and tasted by perspective customers. This act of blending and tasting different coffees is called cupping - hence the name The Cupping Room. The coffee tasting went so well that the owners decided to change the name from The Coffee Connection to The Cupping Room Cafe. They also decided to open the back of the store and sell coffee and pie to the local artists.

The building hosting The Cupping Room is a landmark building. It was the first "tall" building in SoHo and is more than 100 years old. The high tin ceilings, hard wood floors, pot-belly stove and exposed brick walls are all part of the original setting.

The Cupping Room was a home for artists and locals. Today it is still a neighborhood place where you can see the locals and the famous come together in our homey environment.
