Cupping Room Cafe
Book your next event with us
We had an awesome waiter and more than enough food. The coffee was excellent and everyone was very good about helping me with my allergies! Recommend!
The staff was super helpful. We were seated quickly. No one rushed us and we had a great time. The food was excellent.
It's an incredibly noisy place, to the point where we had to lean far across the table to talk. To make it harder, the tables are close together. But the food was terrific and very plentiful. The service was great. So long as you don't mind shouting it's not a bad place to eat.
Glad to finally visit
Will definitely return and see what it's like at different times of day.
Full of tourists
Cold cappuccino with no foam
Horrible dried chicken sausage
Burnt pancakes and very dry
Eggs were ok
Home fries were good
They called to confirm and said are you sure you are coming and will you definitely be here at your reservation time because we don’t want to set the table unless you are definitely coming. We confirmed Yes and they said ok but everyone in your party needs to be here . Okay- we planned to be. We get there and the server did not understand us. Omelette came without toast that was ordered with it, salad came without avocado, sandwich had no ham, kids hated their grilled cheese which is nearly impossible. It was not toasted on the bread with butter or oil in pan. It was dry. Eggs Benedict was overcooked like it was hard boiled. Drinks never came! When we asked server bar tender had to ask what the drinks were. We said they are actually drinks that on the menu. Were told they were short all bartenders. It was awful service and food and drink.
Haven’t been here in a long time and it was still as good as I remembered. Great for breakfast.
Multiple aspects of our order were messed up, things came out slowly, and the waitress seemed to want to avoid us rather than rectify the mistakes. I will say my food was good (chocolate chip pancakes and chicken sausage) though my friends were less impressed.
What a find! A fabulous place for Brunch with a great wait staff. Food was excellent and many options for Vegans and GF eaters. Highly recommendable!
A wonderful visit for brunch. We've been once every time we find ourselves in NYC.
The food was delicious, the service was attentive and a lively ambience.
I usually love this place for brunch but service was a bit of a disaster this day.
Everything was delicious! Excellent service! Will definitely be back
Decent at best, other then our waiter who was delightful in personality but distracted in service, I wouldn’t go back.
We stopped by The Cupping Room for lunch. Our food was delicious (hamburgers, salads) and our server was great. The restaurant is charming and in a great location. After lunch we strolled around SoHo then walked to the 9/11 museum. A+
We’re told when we sat down they were only serving salads and sandwiches-would have been a great weekend sea to notify people with reservations of that so they could choose to cancel.
We ordered a tuna melt, quesadilla and quinoa salad. The salad was great, the quesadilla was boring and bland, the tuna melt was dry, cold and on stale ciabatta bread.
Was not my first time here but will definitely be my last!
Horrible sodas and lemonade. It should be simple to achieve
Food was wonderful. We went for a birthday brunch and everyone enjoyed everything they ordered. The Eggs Benedict options were great. Really enjoyed being able to customize your own. 6 people attended and 6 people all got different options. The grilled salmon was absolutely delicious on the Eggs Benedict. Our server was very nice and attentive. The place was crowded but we felt like he only had us to focus on. Will definitely go again when we are back in New York.
It was amazing as usual!
The food was very good, but the music was outstanding! Kenny Shanker's band is fabulous and we highly recommend going when they're playing.
We went in for a casual lunch. The food was great and customer service also was great. We will return again!
I reserved a table here for a Sunday brunch for some old friends visiting from Portland, Oregon, their daughter, and my daughter. The atmosphere is nice, though a bit noisy for a 'regular' conversation. It was one of those 'have to lean way-forward to hear what they're saying' type of restaurant atmospheres...
Our waitress took a while to finally greet us. I really dislike feeling like I'm waiting and waiting for first-contact from whoever will be serving us. It wasn't that crazy. I know this place can be crazy full, and it wasn't, so I didn't know why it was taking so long for first contact.
The food was good. I mainly took my friends here because of the atmosphere, though perhaps I should have thought a little more and considered a place that wouldn't be so noisy, so my friends and I could catch up without having to say 'what?' so often...
It was basically a nice choice though, considering.
Food was incredible and ambiance was perfect! Great find!
Great brunch with a focus on eggs Benedict. Portions were very generous but prices were a little high. Service was great. Atmosphere is cute.
Great place! Highly recommend it.
I hadn't been to the Cupping Room in years (possibly 30!) but when I went Friday night I was pleased to see nothing had changed. It continues to be super laid back. The food is delicious, the server's are incredibly nice, and there is still wonderful live music. Got to hear the incredibly talented Sarah James and take part in her birthday celebration. Wonderful evening!
Always a pleasure to come to CRC when we are in the city. It's laid back and cozy. The food is delicious with a good variety, and the service is outstanding.
Old place with great food and reasonable prices, relaxed vibe, not “super cool!” I had strip steak which was great and reasonable.
Very good food. Good portions for reasonable prices. Artichoke ravioli was cooked well and tasted great. O cake for dessert is a cheesecake lovers dream and can easily be shared.
Classic NY dining experience. Great neighborhood to walk around after your meal.
The food was epensive but it was a lot. I likr that thwy could add cheese to my avocado toast.
The hostess was as terrific, our waiter excellent. Love the ambiance and everyone enjoyed their meal. Thanks!
Great atmosphere. Generous food portions and the staff was great.
Went also to see show and listen to music, which was great
Excellent service. Our waiter was outstanding.
We sat at a lovely table with window to Soho. Unfortunately that is all that was good. My brioche french toast was over cooked and dry. My husbands avocado toast and egg was not particularly tasty and my granddaughters scrambled eggs were also over cooked. The location was nice but the food was not. Would not recommend to others. By the way we arrived with a reservation for 11:30 and they were not crowded at all.
Having visited Cupping Rooms in the past I was disappointed with my recent visit. Waiter was hovering too close and too long, lighting too dim, air temperature too cool and the tables unclean and sticky.
Having said that the burgers chosen by my teenagers were good and the Cobb salad was excellent.
Servers were not that friendly or attentive. Couldn’t find our waitress for 20 minutes. The place is also dirty and the vents above us were caked with dust! Would not go back.
On Mothers Day- They put a large, very loud group in the center of the restaurant. We couldn't hear each other speak. Soup was cold hamburger was over done and stale bread. We ordered a virgin bloody mary- it had alcohol in it!!
We wont return.
Initially I was not thrilled with the seating arrangement which was near the bar & what I believe to be the employees or coat room, but the friendly service and good food outweighed my initial displeasure. Plus it turned out to be the quiet section of the restaurant. It was Mother's Day and the place was full.
Highly recommend the French Toast......
The place is known by its pancakes. I went there specifically for that. There was no pancake...and the sweets I had to substitute were old.
