DANSVILLE — An old treasure has reopened its doors, and has a few modern twists.
The Coffee Cup, Sugar Bowl, and Caffé Tazza owner, Jennifer Tomaschow, plans to compliment all three of her businesses with one another.
Tomaschow’s vision to bring back the nostalgia of the original Coffee Cup that first opened doors in 1930, and give it a modern twist with her own unique ideas came to life on June 12.
“I am happy about it,” she said. “It has been a long time coming. We have been very busy everyday.”
Tomaschow said she is starting out with lunch, but eventually would like to be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Lucky Number’s Roger Wolfanger said that it is a very comfortable environment she has created for her customers.
“The food is just fantastic,” he said. “It is a great place to go for lunch. This is the best club sandwich I have ever had.”
Wolfanger said he has been waiting for the opening of this restaurant.
“The prices are excellent, and the service is incredible,” he said. “This is my new place to go for lunch.”
Growing up, Wolfanger said he would come to The Coffee Cup, but he prefers how it is now.
“Growing up it was nice, but this is so much better now,” he said. “It has the old school feel with modern touches.”
Tomaschow mentioned that the burgers are all hand-pressed in house, and the food is all fresh from a local supplier.
“I make all of the deserts myself,” she said. “I allow people to take drinks from the Sugar Bowl and bring them over here.”
The restaurant itself is like stepping back in time. It has been stripped down to the original brick, floors, ceiling, and 1800s style windows.
Tomaschow would like to have a large timeline of photos on display of The Coffee Cup throughout the ages. She said she would use a few other old Dansville Main Street photos as well.
Tomaschow still plans to have a brewery in the back of the building, which will work nicely with Caffé Tazza.
The Coffee Cup will be serves the American classics such as steak, club sandwiches, hamburgers, grilled cheese, soups and salads, Fish Fry, and pizza.
The Coffee Cup is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. and closed Sunday and Monday. It is located at 173 Main Street. She is also looking for a breakfast cook.
