The Coffee Cup

520 E. Cervantes, Pensacola, FL - (850) 432-7060
Posted By Jim Clark on 4/17/2007 10:05:00 AM
I lived in P'cola for 16 years and had breakfast at the Coffee Cup at least once a week. All the food is great, but the waitresses and cooks are what makes it interesting. Most of the girls have been there since the Spaniards discovered Pensacola! Creola, the grill chef, (she's a chef, not a cook, in my opinion) has been flippin' pancakes and eggs for over 25 years and has yet to see the first written food ticket. She's amazing!

Lunches are good Southern-style meat & 3's and the soups are made from scratch. The Coffee Cup is famous for their pies; they sell hundreds for Thanksgiving and again at Christmas. They also sell gravy by the bucketful at the holidays.

Just a great place. I hope they made it through the last hurricane OK.

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.
