Hi all, my trip to Tucson was purely business, but I sure would have loved to stay longer so to get more from what the area has to offer. The ambiance, setting and dinner was great.

It is the only place to have breakfast at the resort, the menu is boring, and, if you can wait till 11, go outside to bill's grill.

You MUST make the time to partake of the Sunday Blues, Brews, and BBQ brunch buffet. All you can eat bbq, beer, mimosas, breakfast items, dessert--what is there not to like!

The Canyon Cafe at the Loews Canyon Resort has an AMAZING buffet! It actually has TWO buffets. Both are AMAZING! The staff is wonderful too - Debbie, William Arce - they treated us like family. Treat yourself to these buffets! You'll be glad you did!

Four of us have enjoyed the Sunday Brunch a few times over the past three years and have NEVER been disappointed. The food is wonderful, the atmosphere relaxing, and the service is very attentive. Melonie, Alex, Debbie & Johannah have been especially personable in their service! Wish we could attend more often!
