Opened in the mid-'90s by Terri Stevens and her wife Cari. They were hands, Carri worked as a waiter, and Stevens as a dishwasher they were able to establish the restaurant. Visitors come in from all over the world, some bring coffee cups from home and enjoy drinking with the owner.
Many visitors who are staying in nearby Las Vegas come up to The Cup to escape the noise of downtown. They come to Boulder City to relax and have some real home-cookin'.
Offering a little slice of western culinary Americana, Al’s pork chili-verde omelet, “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives,” and the tall-glass bloody marys served with a thick wedge of bacon as a stir-stick, have earned the Coffee Cup a national reputation as a stopover for RVs and SUVs en route to nearby Hoover Dam.
All of their food is cooked fresh to order and prepared in-house and they cater special orders and include special items on the menu.
Gravy's, meatloaf, roast beef, chili and chili verde sauce, potato salad, coleslaw, and tuna salad are their own special recipes.

Front Desk About Us. The Coffee Cup was established in 1994 at 558 Nevada Way, Old Town, Boulder City. Carri was my wife and we worked together as waitresses and cooks. There were also two cooks, a dishwasher and a busboy.
It was a good life. Carri, Terry and I both worked seven days a week, while Lindsay and Terry helped us out. Lindsay and Terry prepared biscuits for Carri while I was doing prep work. We bought an Old Town restaurant in January 2003.
The restaurant was 3,000 sq ft and had an enormous kitchen. It was exactly what we needed. We had to go through an expensive and lengthy remodeling process before finally moving The Cup into its new location at 512 Nevada Way. The business has flourished.
We now have 4 cooks and 1 prep cook. 2 dishwashers. 6 waitresses. 5 bus girls. One hostess. Carri and me still work seven days a week. Our mainstay is the Boulder City residents.
Our everyday friends are our mainstay. Most of our people know us by first name and know exactly what we like to eat. Many visitors visit us from around the globe. Many visitors bring their coffee cups and hang them at The Cup.
Visitors who live in Las Vegas often come to The Cup to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. Boulder City is a great place to unwind and enjoy some home cooking. Our food is prepared fresh every time. We often take customer requests into consideration when creating our menu.
After cooking several special orders, we made the decision to add them on our menu. We prepare and cook all of the food ourselves. Our gravies, including our meatloaf and roast beef, chili and Chili verde sauces, potato salad and cole slaw and tuna salad, are made from scratch. Visit The Cup to see the excitement.
We have plenty of props and pictures to help you look. Not to mention our wonderful customers. We are excited to meet you Al Stevens Family and The Cup.
