Our Story

Christine Chung is a professional pastry chef and owner of The Neighborhood Cup. The quaint, intimate coffee shop and cafe is nestled next to the Aliso Viejo Library at 1 Journey.

A former advertising executive, Christine decided to trade her business suit for a chef’s jacket and went to culinary school. Today, she is busy making cookies, breakfast pastries, cupcakes and other specialty treats. The cafe also serves gourmet coffee, sandwiches and soups.

Christine, who enjoys making chocolate bon bons, truffles and cake, is excited about her new Aliso Viejo venture.

“I plan to retire from this place and wanted to create a neighborhood landmark and a ‘Cheers’ type of environment where I know everyone’s name and get to know families and just offer a great place where people want to gather,” she said.
