The Coffee Cup

520 E. Cervantes, Pensacola, FL - (850) 432-7060
Posted By Michael Stern on 11/4/2007 5:51:00 PM
The Coffee Cup is the sort of place campaigning politicians go for the photo-op that shows they are close to real people. This spacious café is a real-people place, for sure. For breakfast in Pensacola, The Coffee Cup is where it’s at. The big dining room is perfumed by the wake-up aromas of hot toast, sizzling bacon, and hash browns heaped on the grill from the moment its doors open at six.

Throughout the morning, The Coffee Cup maintains the perky ambience of a place where regular customers like to start their day with the sort of socializing that makes breakfast in a restaurant such a completely different experience than breakfast at home. Dishes clatter, coffee cups are refilled, hearty meals are served and eaten with gusto, and conversations spark along the counter and among the tables like electric tumbleweeds.

The menu has a nice Dixie Gulf Coast accent, featuring Naussau grits that are supercharged with a spicy tomato sauce alongside eggs and pork chops or high-flavored Spanish omelets. At lunch, you can get those good grits alongside plates of roast chicken or beef and long-cooked southern-style vegetables.

The Nassau grits have just enough heat to wake up your taste buds first thing in the morning. Highly recommended!

For a dollar extra, you can have your omelet covered with Coffee Cup's Spanish sauce.

With breakfast, skip the toast and go for one of the excellent hot biscuits.

While you can order a side of regular sausage gravy with your biscuit, the soupy red gravy is the way to go at The Coffee Cup.

Coffee Cup is a true small town cafe where the locals eat.
