It is definitely one of the best hangout spots in cmb. It has free wi-fi, great food and coffee and you can hangout as long as you want. Special shout out to the staff of cup cafe. They really helpful and friendly. Currently the place is closed as they are shifting. Would love to visit again at their new spot.

The best and most convenient place with the best friendly staff.... More

As of today, there is absolutely no information on their Facebook page about... More

Cup cafe has a great vanilla latte that is worth a try, espresso could be better though. Their sandwiches are pretty yum... More

The prices here are cheaper than most other coffee shops, and considering the quality of the food and the size of the portions, I will guarantee you it's well worth every penny. To add to that the atmosphere is so cozy and peaceful, and the... More
