I have visited Cuppa Joe twice before, and it has been a pleasant experience. The location is where the old Tangy Tomato joint was off Carter Road, right between the Citi ATM and Yogurt Bay. The interiors are well done, with seating predominantly in the basement portion.
I have tried the Cappuccino and the Mojito on the menu once respectively. The Cappuccino is average, not something new or exciting with respect to the coffee beans or the taste The Mojito has a very strong flavour and could do with a slight revision. We did try to order a Snapple yesterday, which is listed on the menu, but were informed that they do not have any at present.
What IS noteworthy about the establishment is the food that they have to offer.The Paneer/Mozarella/Mustard Panini was really tasty. All the flavours were combined just right and tasted great; in fact, I added some more mustard on my own as it really complimented the dish! ;) Even the pesto Panini is a worthy contender.
The cookie monster (aptly called so) is a large cookie that fits on the palm of your hand. Prepared with CHUNKS of chocolate chips,a dash of sugar and baked to near perfection (just a little more time in the oven wouldn't be a bad idea in my opinion), it is definitely something worth trying for anyone with a sweet tooth craving.
My only gripe with the place was when I asked to turn the music off whilst seated downstairs (they offered to lower the volume but didn't do that either) and secondly when I wanted to clear the bill by card only to be informed that they are accepting cash alone (both events took place yesterday). A prior notice would have been helpful, especially if any patron visiting doesn't have the liquidity.
