Love the menu, everything from eggs to eggs benedict, burritos to oatmeal. Friendly waitress today, good food!

Our family tries to support small dining establishments as they have been hit hard with the Covid restrictions and illogical reqirements, so we drove a fair distance to Monument to try the Coffee Cup as it had good ratings.Upon entering, we were told that there...was no room inside and that there would be a 15 min wait unless we wanted to dine outside. We sat at an outside table and immediately realized that with the chilly wind, that choice was a non starter. Our server took us to a waiting area with no other customers and we waited there with our menus and flatware, until a young lady approached us and rudely said we would have to wait outside. That was rather strange as we had been led there by a server and before we could leave the EMPTY waiting area, another server approached and abruptly moved us outside with an attitude worse than the previous server. While waiting in the blustery wind, we were speculating what discomfort diners would experience in the winter months as they provide no pagers that would let customers retreat to their cars. After a short wait we were led inside with no apologies for the inconvenience. Our assigned server however was delighful and very attentive and the food was wonderful. We highly recommend this diner if you can overlook rude hostesses and being treated like cattle. Management needs to be reminded that even though customers sympathize with the plight of restaurants during the pandemic, there is zero excuse for rudeness and indifference to their comfort. Patrons do have a variety of choices and even though the food is good it doesnt trump poor service. Regretfully, we will not return.More

This was a great restaurant. The food and service was amazing! The only problem was it was a little difficult to find but overall it was great! I recommend the fresh squeezed orange juice!

Honestly the best green sauce huevos rancheros I’ve ever had...full stop. Would have a hard time ordering anything else.

This is the best breakfast in northern El Paso county. Ignore the picky reviews; probably people who can never be satisfied. Coffee cup cafe always finds us a table quickly, the food is delicious, the service good and the prices better.

The coffee cup is an ok place if you do not want anything special. The name says it all as the coffee is quite good. Went there for breakfast. Nothing special just routine eggs and bacon. I asked for scrambled eggs and got chopped up...fried eggs from a flat grill. My female friend got about the same with her omelet. Just short order flat grill trying to pass for an omelet. Pass on this one unless you can find nothing else.More

Coffee cup Cafe has good comfort food. With servings sure to fill you up. I had the BBQ hamburger which comes with bacon and I can say the bacon is some of the best served anywhere.

After a nearly 7 mile snowshoeing expedition on Spruce Mountain, my wife and I decided on Coffee Cup Cafe for lunch. Great choice! Lauren was a great waitress - friendly and professional. My wife decided on the gluten-free Chicken Club wrap with Sweet Potato Fries...while I chose the Crab Avocado on Focaccia with onion rings. My wife loved her wrap and I chowed the crab sandwich. The Sweet Potato Fries were awesome and the Onion Rings were amazing. I also had the Caramel Thing iced (a coffee drink) which really hit the spot. Great old-fashioned restaurant with a family feel.More

If you are looking for a very good local hangout out with a great breakfast, this place is for you! Laid back, relaxing atmosphere with plenty of room to talk and discuss news or business.

I don't think this question was meant for me. We love the coffee cup.

Yes, Jeremy sold it to his manager, Ben, some months ago. Overall, the breakfast food seems to be very close to the past. The hash browns do not have all of the onions and bell peppers as in the past, and the bacon has not... More
