We got the window seat which was separate from the rest of the restaurant and lots of fun! We just had drinks & an order of steak nachos! Nachos were great (definitely worth the $16...the steak was wonderful) and the drinks were definitely different!

Strong, menu with many items. Coffee and iced tea excellent. Went there for brunch. Food very good except for the waffle, which somehow was rubbery. Eggs, though, were fine. Chicken sausage was awesome! One of us ordered sourdough, and the waiter brought whole wheat by...More

Food was pretty good for its price point. Ordered the turkey sandwich and the fries paired perfectly. If you're in the Soho area shopping, this is a place I'd recommend that's within walking distance of the main street Broadway. Service was a bit slow to...More

Really good central Soho location. Welcoming staff and efficient service. Good menu but having eaten here twice in the week the meals themselves were quite average. I had scrambled eggs with mushrooms the first visit and the eggs were overcooked and the mushrooms gritty. Second...More

Once the artistic hub of New York City, SoHo (South of
Houston) is now one of the premiere shopping
destinations in the world. Housing everything from the
most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you
won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated
shopper’s dream come true. Broadway teems with
big-name stores and people during the day, while
Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to

The Cupping Room Cafe was established in 1977. It was originally a wholesale coffee establishment. Different blends of coffee were brewed and tasted by perspective customers. This act of blending and tasting different coffees is called cupping - hence the name The Cupping Room. The coffee tasting went so well that the owners decided to change the name from The Coffee Connection to The Cupping Room Cafe. They also decided to open the back of the store and sell coffee and pie to the local artists. The building hosting The Cupping Room is a landmark building. It was the first "tall" building in SoHo and is more than 100 years old. The high tin ceilings, hard wood floors, pot-belly stove and exposed brick walls are all part of the original setting. The Cupping Room was a home for artists and locals. Today it is still a neighborhood place where you can see the locals and the famous come together in our homey environment.
