The Cupping Room Café was established in 1977. It was originally a wholesale coffee establishment. Different blends of coffee were brewed and tasted by perspective customers. This act of blending and tasting different coffees is called cupping - hence the name The Cupping Room. The coffee tasting went so well that the owners decided to change the name from The Coffee Connection to The Cupping Room Café. They also decided to open the back of the store and sell coffee and pie to the local artists. The building hosting The Cupping Room is a landmark building. It was the first "tall" building in SoHo and is more than 100 years old. The high tin ceilings, hard wood floors, pot-belly stove and exposed brick walls are all part of the original setting. The Cupping Room was a home for artists and locals. Today it is still a neighborhood place where you can see the locals and the famous come together in our homey environment.

Tourists from London, came here twice for breakfast on our 4 day stay. Pancakes are exceptionally great but then so was everything. Highly recommend. 5 stars!

Great place, lotta fun staff was very nice, took a long time for the food to come out. We were in no rush though, the waitress recognize this on her own and brought us a complimentary pastry which was delicious, you would think that on a Sunday at 11:30 in the morning that would be enough staff for a brunch, overall I liked it and would come back

Ambiance was great and food was good. A bit pricey given that the food wasn’t particularly outstanding but the experience was very relaxed and enjoyable.

Food was very good but fries were cold as well as hollandaise sauce. Overall very noisy atmosphere but still would come back.

Was really looking forward to trying it out. Food was very average, dining room cold, waiter hard to find.

I had not been there for 20 years and other than a remodel it was exactly as we remembered. The only disappointment was the sour cream muffins which are now stuffed with jelly. Otherwise it was excellent

We are from out of town and happened upon Cupping Room. It was the perfect NYC nighttime experience in Soho. Great food! Amazing, friendly service, and the atmosphere was so warm and inviting.

I met my two girlfriends here, one was visiting from Florida. We had a reservation for 10am and were seated right away. That was when all service ended. We literally sat for 45 minutes without a server coming over to us, not even to give us coffee. I had to get up and go over and find someone to take our coffee orders and then our breakfast orders. Thankfully we were so happy to see one another since we don't get to but once a year, that we didn't become rude or nasty. However, the service was atrocious. The worst service the three of us have ever experienced in NYC.

Service was horrible. Took 1 hour just to get cappuccinos. And 1.5 hours for our food. Waiter never came back to offer more coffee.
Food was average and 2 out of our eight dishes were cold!
The restaurant itself was cold and drafty. Not warm and cozy at all. Had to eat with coats on.
Would not recommend this place. The city has far better options to choose from.

the host seemed to not care about anyone who had a reservation. we went the previous year and had no issues or no wait. overheard another couple who was having a similar issue and had to wait even though they had a reservation. the food was great so it made up for the first part

Food was just ok. Nothing wrong with the restaurant but I’ve been to better. Food presentation was lacking. Taste, ok, nothing special. Waited awhile for our drinks but the bar was not busy. Just not a good or bad experience but expected more from a place in SoHo, so slightly disappointed and will not return when there are better places to attend.

We've been to the Cupping Room several times, almost always for brunch. My husband is an omelette connoisseur - he orders them everywhere we go and this is consistently his favorite! He calls it the "best omelette anywhere, period". The Cupping Room is cozy, comfortable, and delicious every time, and the staff is always pleasant and accommodating. Definitely one of our favorite NY restaurants.
