The portions are huge but everything is based on fried items or loaded with sugar pancake/potatoes type of food. A rude waitress made me move to a single table and I did because I thought that table had been reserved, no, she just didn't want me to sit at a 4 chair table. I sat in a back corner looking...

Breakfast is without a doubt one of the best in the metro area. Large portions you have to take 1/2 of a full order home. Pancakes & bacon is one of my favorites. Veggie omelet is also a wonderful full meal.

We finally stopped here after hearing about it for years. This place is your classic neighborhood diner. Huge portions. Very friendly staff. We shared the everything omelette and one pancake and still took home enough for breakfast for both of us the next day. Classic food. I would definitely recommend to anyone in the area.

One of my brothers brought me here on a recent visit to Minnesota. I ordered one of their omelettes which came with a generous helping of hash browns. I took more than half of it home with me. Nothing fancy smancy but really good food at a great price.

The service was great. The food was pricy and greasy. The omelette seemed pre-made and heated into the microwave. The toast was soggy rather than fresh. The bill for two was $26.00. There coffee flowed freely but taste like cheap grounds.

My husband and I went to the Coffee Cup restaurant today for breakfast. We have been there before, but not for several years. I do not think it will be several years before we come here again. I ordered the French Toast - two slices. My husband ordered three pancakes with sausage. The three pancakes were HUGE and instead of... More

The eggs were cooked perfectly and the toast was delicious as well! Not a fan of the link sausage or patty, must have been the brand they use. The bacon was good though. The hash browns were good but lost their seasoning in such a thick pile. Portions are huge! Prices reflect this. Be prepared, they only take cash and... More

Jimmy is up at 3am, not only he owns the Coffee Cup he does all the cooking. The portions are epic. People will drive 40 miles to come and experience comfort food that it's hard to replicate. I love their French toast, their omelette and I never left disappointed.
