Met a former neighbor here for breakfast on a recent road trip. It is quaint, busy place, just off I-110 in Pensacola. Although busy with many locals, we were shown a seat to wait for our friend. Staff was friendly, food was hot and tasty.

Nothing fancy, but great food and excellent service. Come early to avoid the crowds. There is a feel of timelessness here..

This place is an institution in the downtown Pensacola area - it's evidently been around since the 1940's. EVERYONE comes here - from lawyers, college students, construction workers, brokers, on-and off-duty police officers, tourists, to local retirees - there's a great mix of people here. Don't let the looks fool you - yes, the place is old, and it's dated,... More

When I want a great southern breakfast and a good reason to walk off the gluten free life for a minute of comfort eating....here I go. Same food every time. ..grits, bacon, scrambled eggs and gravy and biscuits. Heaven. If only for a few minutes on a plate. Popular place. Love the old time atmosphere.

We've been staying in Pensacola since January. Only 2nd breakfast place we've made multiple visits to. Always busy but weekends are extremely busy. This place has been here for a long time and is filled with lots of locals. Good breakfast, seasoned and fun staff. To watch the cook is something else...she never writes anything down and is like a... More

This one of the classic breakfast places in Pensacola. I generally have the one egg special with bacon or the corn beef hash with a biscuit or wheat toast. i have also had the pancakes. All of this is good. You watch the cook behind the counter covering several grills, toasters a pot of grits, etc. I saved the best... More

Whenever relatives come to town, I ALWAYS take them for breakfast at the Coffee Cup. Excellent prices! I love this place. Warm fuzzies.

I don't get to Pensacola as often as I would like to, but when I do, I always try to visit the Coffee Cup for either breakfast or lunch. LOVE their French toast (battered & deep fried) ! No, it's not very healthy, but it's OK to splurge once in a while. Another favorite is their grits. I was born... More

Most every town and city has at least one. A place to enjoy a great breakfast or lunch in a friendly relaxed location.A place to meet friends and business associates. A restaurant and social gathering place that has been there since the 40s, Friendly long time employees who recognize the "regulars".

Amazing atmosphere with great food and staff. One of your last places to experience "Old Pensacola" . This resturant has not changed for the 40 years I have lived here and from the pictures on the wall, it hasn't changed since 1947. Biscuits are the best anywhere. Omelettes are the most amazing you will every taste. You won't be disappointed... More
