With a 4.5-star rating out of 63 reviews on Yelp, The Yellow Cup is off to a strong start.

Yelper Jacqui L., who reviewed it on Oct. 8, wrote, "Great coffee shop with airy/open vibes and good coffee! They have a wide selection of teas too, which is a plus, and a few fun seasonal drinks as well. Stayed safe with an oat milk latte, which was tasty."

Emilio A. noted, "What a great new local coffee and tea place! Very knowledgeable staff and the coffee, tea and pastries are great!"

The Yellow Cup is open from 6:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m.-5:30 p.m. on weekends.
