Ask for the cranberry chocolate cake. And make sure you at least two people to eat it because it is the most wonderful and decadent cake you have ever tasted. The atmosphere is also one of the most wonderful places I have ever visited. A patio so romantic that you could swear that you see character from Renoir's paintings in... More

You have a choice of indoor or outdoor seating. Orders are taken at the counter and later delivered to the table. It's busy at lunch, so we arrived at 11.30 am. Service was fast and the atmosphere pleasant. I had an Angus beef hamburger with bacon and provolone cheese, which was delicious. It came with salad or fries including in... More

Regrettably, I found out about this little hidden gem as I was leaving Tucson. They have great pasteries. It is just outside of the hustle and bustle of the city. It is a nice place to break away and enjoy yourelf.

Sometimes when you walk into a place you immediately feel warm about it...a friendly vibe...and even if you're only having a coffee you know it'll be a pleasant experience. We went there for lunch...I had the burger...and it was excellent. The place was quite empty for a Saturday but that made little difference. We'd readily go back just for a... More

One of our favorite Tucson dessert places. Like the old tucson charm of cafe ala Carte- especially the outside patio dining area. The Chocolate Bomb- & The Key Lime Cheese cake are our Favorites . .......

Awesome breakfast and brunch spot! They make great coffee drinks, the egg dishes are great, particularly the portabello omelet, and the sides are really good. I recommend the roasted potatoes and the fruit. Hard to go wrong here!

After visiting the Tucson Art Museum, we had lunch at the Cafe. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace under the vine canopy. I had the Bistro salad, which was delicious - mixed greens, walnuts, cranberries, grapes, goat cheese with a raspberry vinaigrette. The menu had some heartier fare that we plan to enjoy at a later date and the desserts... More

Ate in the patio with helpful services and refreshing meal. We had the Chicken Almond Salad Sandwich which we split. Plenty for two with a light appetite.
