Brunch at Cuppers

The day wasn't quite so cold. Evidence above, the first thing that friend Georgene & I noticed upon arriving at Cuppers, the well established coffee house over on Cortez Street.

I suspect that it also has the longest menu of any. Quiche, home-baked goodies of all sorts, sandwiches. Etc.

And features. Wi-fi, of course. Since I couldn't get around town if I had to carry a laptop, my favorite feature is the busy bulletin board.

Three rooms to handle the bustle of customers that started arriving noonish. I had wondered how Cuppers was handling all those people, since we were holding down one table of the four in the entry room and a guru/acolyte combo was holding down the second. That's when I had the presence of mind to ask where all the people were sitting. Doh!

Since the house brags of being a good 30 years older than any Whiskey Row business, finding this handsome rolltop desk in room #3 was not too surprising. Specific date for the house: 1872, BTW.

Eclectic is the word for Cuppers. Not just its customer mix, but its decor. All posters in the entry room feature airplanes and flight. Table tops vary all over the lot. One covered with postcards from customers...

...a proper coffee table for two...

...and a table made from an old panel door. Quite obviously a one-of-a-kind establishment, unlike the big players. My kind of place.

This looks like an interesting place to sit with a cup of coffee.

Oh, yes, steve -- we both sat there, catching up on local politics & at the same time trying to figure out the guru/acolyte position in the world of ideas...

What a great place! I would visit often I am sure.

Granny J said...

meggie -- so I shall. We have a neat collection of un-Starbuckers here in Prescott.

What a coincidental post, I just went into Cuppers for the first time last Friday!! I have to say that I was quite enamored with it, and the coffee was REALLY good (compared to some other coffee establishments around town).

Definitely a cool place, which I will be frequenting for some time to come. :)

tombo -- and speaking of coincidences, I just caught your portfolio of alley pix over on Flickr. You caught some very nice ones!

Thanks!! If only I had more time on my lunch hour, I'd be able to see more alleys. :)

I like Cuppers so much I am moving back to Prescott from Montana. Call me crazy but I really miss Prescott and I was a daily customer. Will be back in February. Yippie!!

Granny J said...

tombo -- I look forward to whatever you find time to photograph...

boobie -- I can certainly understand leaving Montana for Prescott in the middle of winter, whether the coffee is better or not! Welcome home.
