Mea Cuppa Coffeebar

Mea Cuppa Coffeebar opened in April 2015 when the previous coffee shop's manager, Venu Menon, decided to purchase the business and own his very own coffee shop at Capitol Market.   Venu has been in the coffee industry for over a decade and most of his expertise in managment, customer service and barista life stems from his ten year history with Starbucks. 

Since opening, Venu has added numerous new menu items in addition to coffee offerings.   You will find, cupcakes, baked goodies and more.  Venu loves to engage with his customers; so never hesitate to drop by to visit Venu to learn more about coffees from around the world.   He is quite knowledgable and fascinating to chat with about's almost like you are learning about all the flavors in the coffee as you do wine. 

Expect more to come in the future.

Mea Cuppa opens at 7am Monday through Friday for early birds needing their coffee fix.  The entrance on Smith Street is exclusive to Mea Cuppa for early arrivals.
