What we're about

Lovin’ Cup Bistro and Brews is about dreams. It was our dream to build a place the celebrated the good things in life: Delicious, uncomplicated food choices, with a wide range of flavors to appease every palette. A rotating draft selection that is sure to please. A solid selection of bottled beers, to change with your mood. An ever-changing collection of local, national, and international wines, that we are very proud of. Thoughtful signature cocktails that any mixologist would be proud of. A comfortable environment, that transforms from day to night. A deliberate attention to detail when it comes to the vibe: handcrafted tables, rotating local art, ambient lighting, and most prominently our beautiful wine rack. A crew of people who not only take care of your needs, but get to know you. A wide-range of events and music every week! Our biggest driving force? We truly take pride in our conscious understanding of what a community-driven environment is.

 

Lovin’Cup is a family business. We are made up of five owners, each of whom, bring a different set of talents to the table: Erik Ward, Leslie Zinck-Ward, Clay Carpenter, Bob Zinck and Ric Carley. We are only the start of a cohesive family of staff who work to create an experience for you each and every time you walk through our doors.


Lovin’Cup can mean different things to different people. It could be your favorite place to grab a bite and a beer. It could be your favorite spot to see original live music every week. Or the spot where you finally unveil a talent that no one knew you had at open mic. We trust is it the place where you feel like you can be yourself.
