Tim at The Cupping Room Café Restaurant & Bar SoHo, NYC
After unpacking at the Hampton Inn in Manhattan-SoHo, Perry and I searched for a restaurant still open at 10:00 pm. A short walk from the hotel, we found The Cupping Room Café Restaurant & Bar. We always pack our Kup Kollars and Kup Kaps to enjoy iced tea and hot coffee wherever we go!
When we were seated, Tim, our waitperson, asked did we know what cupping coffee meant. He was surprised when we answered “Yes.” When you start a company called Koffee Kompanions, you can’t help learning the term! Tim shared several helpful hints about NYC and answered our touristy questions with a smile. I told him he was debunking the myth that NYC was an unfriendly city. He replied, “We stopped the unfriendliness during the 80”s!” We saw Tim three more times while enjoying food at The Cupping Room. He continued to share interesting tidbits about himself, the restaurant, and the city throughout the week. Tim is a great ambassador for NYC!
The Cupping Room Café is L-shaped with two entrances. This is the bar entrance on Broome Street. The front window opens so you can sit at a table near the sidewalk but not on the sidewalk. Tim planted the beautiful flowers in the window box.
