2008-09-28 11:36:17   My Starbucks (like I own it haha) closed for a week for remodeling and we were forced to find a new place to get coffee on the way to work. Enter Lovin' Cup, repeat Lovin' Cup....I like a dark roast and the Canal Town Roaster is very good, they also offer a other blends as well so you're sure to find something to your liking. Now here's the best part, they have all the juices and pastries you find at Starbucks but also offer breakfast as well, and not just any breakfast, but GREAT breakfast. Shawn (sp), the guy who made our breakfast, is so enthusiastic about making breakfast food! Yeah, I know. There are so many choices and lots of alternatives for people with varying palates. There's also an ATM, an area to catch the news, a variety of comfortable seating, WiFi, the Friendliest staff I've come across in ages and all are clearly on board with making it a great experience for the customer. I can't recommend this place enough and I'm sure you'll be hearing more about it in the future. It's nothing short of FANTASTIC! Overall, its a very very positive experience and you will leave there with, as their slogan says, "a beautiful buzz". —DeniseDafoe

2009-01-03 17:27:42   I had a much different experience than Denise re: customer service. My husband and I stopped in lovin' cup a few weeks ago. We were the only two customers, although there were three staff members (or perhaps a staff member and two friends) sitting at the bar when we walked in. Not only did the guy behind the counter seem slightly resentful that he had leave his oh-so-engrossing conversation just to make me a latte, he was also very obviously ill, and he coughed right into my drink. Disgusting. I could've asked for another drink... but I didn't want to wait another five minutes for him to make a simple latte. So I walked over to Barnes & Noble, and got a latte there instead.

Maybe I caught the place on an off day; maybe the staff is nicer, faster and healthier in the evenings, when there are more customers around. But I'm not going back in to find out. —LaraC

Im guessing he designed them or they are a rip off. They also have a decent beer selection. I dont drink coffee, so I cant comment on that. The mens room has a pic of Frank Zappa on the toilet, lol. —MrRochester

2009-05-24 22:47:47   I went there for dinner the other night on advice from a friend so I really wanted to like it. I thought the decor was interesting but the food was not memorable. I had the Turkey Reuben which was OK. My wife had the southwest wrap which was blah. She ordered wine and got a nice large wine glass that was about 1/4 filled. We thought that was a little cheap. As more people started to come in and the band was setting up it became very noisy and we could not hear each other talk. I think we need to go later in the evening for coffee and listen to live music to enjoy what it has to offer. Not a place I plan to return for dinner. The beer towers looked interesting. —ScottHendler

2009-11-02 14:15:46   I love going to the Lovin' Cup. I've been there for their monthy wine tastings and beer tastings and always had a great experience. Going this Wednesday again.

I have also been there for some of their live music events and I must say their wine lists and beer lists are nice. Their food is really good, never had anything that I didn't like. My only wish is that they had more food choices... since I go there so often

And no, I am not working for them, I just really like their atmosphere and food, and special events —EmRosario

2012-05-26 11:26:13   Lovincup is a great alternative to the many chains in the area. I'm an especially big fan of their salads and beer selection. I also appreciate the staff's knowledge of the products they serve. The live music can be a bit loud for the venue, but it's usually scheduled well after the dinner hour. —TimGuyot

2013-01-28 13:31:41   I had a good lunch at LC. I tried to go there for a morning coffee, but despite being a coffee place, they don't open until 11:00. —LawrenceAndrews
