“Superb Coffee”

Red Cup Coffee House

Reviewed August 2, 2014

Superb coffee shop located right in the heart of town on Commercial Street across from the water. We stopped here midmorning to get recharged after a long drive to Boothbay. I had the black eye, which is a 16 ounce mug of their coffee with two shots of espresso (It also comes in a red eye with one shot.) It was a perfect mug of coffee. My wife had the Café Au Lait, which is their name for cappuccino. This was also superb. All of their coffee is served in a huge red mug, hence the name. We had a bagel with our coffee, and it too was fresh and delicious. The ambiance is perfectly quaint for a coffeehouse, and there is also free wifi. Prices are very reasonable. We enjoyed it so much that we stopped in later that afternoon for an iced coffee, which was also superb.

Great coffee. Superb atmosphere. Divine concept for a busy touristy area.

Clean!

Not a chain, and doesn't try to be one.

No gluten free options, but that's fine. They have great java & vibe.

Welcoming to kids too with toys & coloring. Look up! :-)

Red cup is so great! This is the only place on the peninsula where you can get a real cup of coffee. The baristas are fantastic, and the owners Paul and Wendy are so friendly and helpful! I frequently come here for coffee in the morning, business lunches, and sometimes for a glass of wine with friends on their Thursday night open mic nights. Such a fun place with great atmosphere, staff, and food. You can't go wrong here food wise. Highly recommend a visit to Red Cup!

My husband and I stopped in for early morning coffee before exploring Boothbay. The staff was amazing and incredibly friendly. My husband got a regular coffee and I got the best almond milk latte I've ever had. The treats looked incredible the atmosphere was peaceful and homey. I wish we could have spent more time!
