We dined to catch up with old friends from out of town. We wanted a place to gather for some quiet conversation. On a gorgeous summer evening, the inside seating was empty, except for our table... And even the outside wan't full, to our surprise. The food we had was fine, though I had the Caesar salad, with added Salmon for a topper, and I was surprised at what seemed like an unusually small Salmon portion.
We could have had our quiet conversation, except for the SCREAMING motorcycles on the street in front of the cafe. We literally jumped in our seats when the cycles raced by. This is not the restaurant's fault, but I suspect it must impact their business. I think we will hesitate to come back when the sidewalk windows are open, due to this noise.
So, the Cup is a pleasant space, in a great location, hampered by motorcycle noise.
