The Coffee Cup Cafe started in 1970 with old fashioned cooking with great recipes from the community. We bought the Cup in 2004 and took that philosophy to heart, hoping to use our restaurant experience to improve on a good thing. Our commitment to providing a comfortable atmosphere and fantastic home-made meals will never change. So... Sit back, relax, you’re home at the Coffee Cup Cafe.
We take extreme pride in our "made from scratch" cooking. This commitment to quality has brought us local and national recognition throughout the years...
