Cozy may be the word of the day when you walk in to the Coffee Cup Diner, but you will walk away with a full stomach and good taste in your mouth. The coffee is excellent. The pancakes, bacon, French toast, and eggs are all excellent choices. Owner Pai (pronounced "Pie") usually cooks, and she does an amazing job. Always... More

The food is ok and the service is great but since it is such a small place you hear and see everything that goes on. You can watch the owner (Pai) yelling screaming degrading and throwing things at her employees. New workers every few days because of this.

There's an old train car that has been converted to a diner. The owner is from Thailand and knows her regular guests by name. The restaurant is small and busy. The food comes fast, so any wait time is brief. There are always a couple of spicy Thai selections on the menu. I usually choose the big bowl of soup.... More

The Coffee Cup is a very old-fashioned coffee shop with some surprises on the menu. Owned by a Thai woman, there are usually some Thai dishes on the menu, but other than that, it's a small town, classic breakfast and lunch diner. Still has the stools at the counter. Favorite of local professionals and laborers.

I really can't say enough great things about The Coffee Cup or its owner and staff. The food, prices, service and the atmosphere are all incredible. Traditional American breakfast and lunch fare with some INCREDIBLE Thai dishes tossed in. Steak and Eggs are my favorite breakfast and either the Thai chicken salad or the Thai "Big Bowl" round out my... More

Great lunch spot for something different. Try the Big Noodle Bowl. It is big! Pick up a carton to go and take it to an ailing friend. Other good things but this is my go-to.

Best food in the county. This small diner which is family friendly gives large quantities of lip smacking offerings. They have daily specials some of which are traditional Thai food. You won't be disappointed if you vist this small deli...they close at 2 however!

Pai (owner) has a heart of gold and golden too is the food! Thai dishes in a diner in rural Michigan is not what you would expect, but it is very well done. The food in general is very good and fast service. Seating is limited, but worth the wait or sit at the counter. A local favorite and many... More
