Great coffee and sandwiches – Skip the Columbian and the House blend, but go for French, Ethiopian, and some of the others - it's worth it. The avacado sandwich is also really nice.
Awesome Cuisine – Love this place. Tons of healthy vegetarian food, and everything is from scratch, right down to the pie filling and the chili. Gorgeous.
Great Coffee and a friendly staff – Its great to see a local coffee shop other than starbucks making it in this conservative city. In response to the comments made by kd5878 I have to say you were probably a little grumpy the day you went to the red cup...am I right? The reason why the conversations are always the same...and I do agree that they are, is we live in a city where a vast majority of the population is stuck in the 60s or something. Sometimes its nice to talk to other people that share the views you have. Its a great coffee shop relaxed enviroment and if you don't like the conversations you a listening in on...go outside its lovely out there too :)
Super progressive lefty liberal cafe – This is the perfect example of why even though I'm a tree-hugging, NPR-loving, latte-sipping liberal, I hate going to places like this. The food, coffee and service are all fine. I had the Frito pie and it was a little on the small side, but it tasted pretty good. But why do liberals have to talk endlessly about liberal issues? Why can't we just sit around, put aside politics for 30 minutes and enjoy our food? Let me give you a rundown of the conversation at the Red Cup: Sarah Palin is evil, the police can't be trusted, San Francisco is cool, hemp is good for the environment, Evangelicals shouldn't teach their values in public schools, Wal-Mart is destroying the country, yadda yadda yadda. Even though I actually agree, I don't want to hear about it constantly. I guess the reason places like this exist is that people secretly enjoy feeling like an embattled minority, the few liberals in a basically conservative town. Then they get to talk about it all the time and feel so cool and enlightened. Otherwise, if they hate it here so much, why don't they just move to some hipster town like Portland or Austin already?
Fun place – Such a nice place to visit and I love the music. A little retreat compared to the coffee places that have popped up these days. I just wish I lived closer but I will travel the 25 miles as many times as I can.
In a world bombarded by busy and impersonal StarBucks, this place is a gem to be treasured. – The Red Cup is an older home transformed into a funky coffee shop. I went on a Sunday afternoon and the place was lively and busy, full of people meeting friends for conversation over a hot beverage or students studying on laptops, or people like me, just wanting a fun place to sip and read a good book. The chairs themselves are a bounty of character, each of them different and all of them have been 'well loved'.
A double mocha soy latte and chocolate cookie ran me about $5, and they were both excellent, as was the friendly service.
In the midst of the world's largest strip mall (a.k.a. Oklahoma City), the Red Cup is a refreshing reminder of what a coffee shop should be. People, stop supporting the Commercialized Coffee Starbucks Invasion, and spend your money and calories on a fun experience like this one.
Friendly atmosphere and Fun people – The restaurant and coffee house has a lot for such a tiny place. They have wonderful daily and weekend Breakfast and Lunch specials. On weekends live entertainment from Jazz to Rock to Celtic fill the house, Most dishes are vegetarian and fresh. They also provide Wi Fi.
albertnswoz – Red Cup is simply the best coffee house in OKC.
Great coffee – I have been going to Red Cup for over 5 years. They have great coffee and a wonderful atmosphere inside and out. Breakfast and lunch are served and are always fresh and unique.
