“Local staple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

The Coffee Cup has been in Downingtown as long as I can remember. It's a local place where the waitresses know your name, if you've been there more than a few times. The food is good solid breakfast food, but take a stretch and order "The Mess". It's everything but the kitchen sink and it will fill you up! It's always crowded, but that's just the way it is! Enjoy local flavor and enjoy an old school spot!

“You have be scrooge not to like this place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014

This is the real deal---a small hometown dive with lots of local color and good food. I have only been here for breakfast, but can say that the breakfast is good, affordable and a step back in time. The Coffee Cup is full of locals and the waitresses have been serving breakfast and lunch for decades. Everyone knows everyone else here. It's not gourmet, but it is good hearty food served with a smile.

“Old School Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2013

Our foursome goes here for breakfast when it's too wet or too cold to golf. This is a place that hasn't changed much with time and that seems to be just what it's graying mostly male clientele likes. The food is very reasonably priced and served by friendly middle aged gals who call you "hon". Nothing innovative here (the "mess" a possible exception), just a hot, honest, and relatively cheap breakfast. I've never been here for lunch but imagine it to be perfectly fine,too.

“Wonderful - good food, clean dining room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

This little gem only serves breakfast and lunch. I have never been there for lunch, but I go there for breakfast as much as possible. Everything they make is great. The prices are reasonable. The waitstaff is pleasant. It's very clean. There is not one thing about this place that I don't like. So go there for a nice breakfast (not fancy, no alcohol) to start your day!

“You're Much Better Off Staying at Home”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

This is as boring and bland as breakfast can get. I have more variety in my kitchen at home, and that's not saying much. Don't waste your time or money at the Coffee Cup.
