“Been about 45 minutes and still waiting for food”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

I haven't been here since they still allowed smoking in restaurants so it's been awhile! The place has had a moderate face lift since then....same old smoke stained acoustical ceiling tiles though.

Clearly this place is a fav with the locals, but ordered breakfast for two almost 45 minutes ago and still waiting.

Food just arrived...looks good! But wait was a bit ridiculous for standard omelets and toast.

“Awesome, cheap breakfast”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

Feel like you've went back in time. Awesome breakfast classics, and the mess is a must try.
Great breakfast comfort food.

“Local staple”
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!”
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.
