Stopped for soup and sandwich lunch after walking out from another local establishment ( soup of the day in menu but was not available and bec. place was filthy) ) Cup of The Day Tomato Basil Bisque was delicious and plentiful and Manhattan Reuben is...the best in town, and atmosphere was relaxed, service friendly and place was clean. Got out moneys worth for sure.More

My family and I have been attempting to have a socially distanced road trip through northern Michigan for the past week, and every establishment we’ve visited has had protocols in place that accord with CDC guidance (and rationality) re: COVID: mask requirements, hand sanitizer, procedures...that indicate that the restaurant is taking this global pandemic seriously, etc. Except Cup of the Day. The owner’s utter disregard for even basic safety measures was glaring. He wasn’t wearing a mask at all, nor was there a mask in sight behind the counter. And the owner makes all of the sandwiches and pours all of the coffee by (COVID-infested) hand. I was shocked and alarmed, to say the least. The message the owner wanted to send to his customers was crystal clear: He didn’t think COVID was real, let alone something worth making even the most minimal of efforts to combat. I was stunned by the blatant indifference. In fact, the owner went out of his way to make it clear that the health of his customers was utterly subordinate to his personal/political views. As you can see from the picture, in the owner’s mind, masks are “useless” and COVID is simply an “ordeal” that doesn’t warrant even basic safety precautions, in a food establishment no less. Bottom line: Cup of the Day would be a mediocre cafe in the best of times, and now it’s a mediocre cafe with an utter disregard for the health of its customers. Don’t bother.More

Sorry folks but I have to clear up some facts with this belligerent little family from New York and their petty inaccurate review. First of all when you visited Chippewa County and cup of the Day in July there was no mask mandate requirement in...More

Great value for the price. Large portions and only $1 a cup of coffee. Specialty coffees are made from scratch no mixes.

If you spend any time in Tony's establishment you would know how much care and effort goes into every handcrafted beverage and meal. I may be biased but after observing the family oriented atmosphere and a warm home-y feeling attached to this business there is...no better place to get lunch in town. If anything I can guarantee you will be greeted with smiling faces and ensured a great experience.More

Quick trip through town thought I would go local. Only wish I went to fast food instead. Garbage coffee.

lmao. I guess that's why I have been here for 25 years and serve hundreds of cups a week.

Mediocre food for price. Service was challenging, "iffy" at best. Serving up reheated sysco food is a tough sell.

Took my niece here for lunch during Spring break for something new. Big mistake. Someone needs to tell the guy working that if you're gonna be smug to paying customers you better have the quality to back it up. Anybody can serve Sysco food. Won't...return.More
