I have been here 2 or 3 times and am yet to be disappointed. Great menu and the wait staff is competent and attentive. Food comes quickly and has always been tasty. They make the eggs just the way you want and the scrapple is crispy on the outside and moist on the inside as it should be. If you... More

This is a real hang out for the locals and the food is good. I like the mess they make but always got a good meal there no matter what I ordered. Is is small and busy but the service is fast and friendly. Only open for breakfast and lunch.

So I've been here ages ago and it was a dirty, greasy hot mess of a joint! Said I would never be back.....It took some pushing and convincing and I'm glad I gave it a second chance. It's had a new facelift, with new booths, chairs, a new/refurbished counter and stools. It's definitely got the once over by the cleaning... More

It doesn't get much better than "the Mess." The coffee isn't stellar but the food makes up for it. Staff is pleasant and prices are great.

The staff is exceptionally friendly but the food we ordered (French Toast like pictured) and steak sandwich and fries were disappointing at best. The French Toast had too much cinnamon and the steak sandwich must have used steak'um meat as it was dry. Fries were greasy and we walked out smelling like a greasy diner. Won't be back.

I trust reviews on trip advisor but this one about great food was NOT the case. We waited too long for our food and it was not tasty! We had a new waitress that did need some time on the floor. Overall. Very disappointed. First time with scrapple and last time.

The Coffee Cup is the breakfast restaurant that we look for everywhere we go - local family owned restaurant with table and counter service that has a friendly staff and great food. We've enjoyed their eggs, pancakes, french toast and love their scrapple omelet (essentially a chunk of scrapple in the middle of the egg). If you don't know what... More

Our favorite places for breakfast! You always get a large serving at a reasonable price. A great local breakfast restaurant. We recommend getting "The Mess" (a little bit of everything), a wonderful meal to start your day. Fast and friendly service. Cash only, ATM in the back.

We come here often and know the staff by first name. They know our drink order without asking. Our food always comes out hot and exactly how we ordered. I love the feel of a neighborhood diner. Seating is first come, first served. You seat yourself, so keep an eye out for a table. They go quick!
