“In the summer while growing up, our mother would make us and our friends some of her famous packed lunches for us to enjoy during our days out at the beach, mixing fruits with tea for us before we left. Not long after she stopped packing our lunches we began to wonder if we could find a similar experience, where we could go to eat. As a family, we started a large restaurant but with her sudden attack of cancer, the restaurant proved too large of a task. The doctors recommended stress relievers to our mother and as such our go to was walking along the beach. Then one day it hit us, there was a lot of variety out in Newport however nothing felt quite the same as those lunches from our earlier days. We decided to try a smaller venue on the beach, setting out to recreate our childhood experience for the masses. Urban Cup Café was founded in August 2016 and thanks to the never ending support, every day we come into work is the next best thing to happen. You have welcomed us with open arms Newport, thank you.”
