When the doors of The Coffee Cup first opened in the late 1940'S, Charlotte, NC was still segregated. Today, The Coffee Cup is proud to be recognized as the oldest and the most integrated restaurant in the city. What makes The Coffee Cup so memorable? Consistency!!! The passing of the proverbial baton not only included the restaurant name, same menu, same counter, stools, tables, booths, recipes and atmosphere. Each new owner amazingly embraced the culture and found it important to maintain and protect it. The face of Charlotte is changing. Taller buildings, neighborhoods are now communities, but one thing remains the same. Embrace a piece of charlotte's history. A place where different ethnic backgrounds come together on a common ground for one main reason…."Good Food and Friendly Conversation."
