Food was good and service was excellent. The breakfast sandwich and coffee were good. I only give it 3 stars because many of the other items were pre-packaged (i.e., fruit cocktail and guacamole with a breakfast sandwich, and a number of pastries).

We were hardpressed for a good cup of coffee as we drove along the old Hwy 66. This place not only filled our need for coffee but also had great smoothies and breakfast options. The need to do a better job of advertising so people know they are there!

We took Historic Route 66 though Tucumcari trying to find a good cup of coffee. We found it at Circa Espresso Bar. The breakfast panini was good, too, with a decent selection of bread and filling choices. The staff was friendly and the place looked very clean.

A small cute coffee shop with 2 very sweet baristas. I was very impressed with the food and drinks, and they even had homemade energy protein bars unique to Tumcumcari. I will definitely be staying at the hotel beside that shop, just for the fantastic breakfast and coffee ! (And sweet baristas obv)

I was on jury duty & out for lunch & really needed good coffee. I happened upon this place & am glad I did! The staff was extremely friendly & my caramel macchiato was the best I've ever had! Better than Starbucks! I went back the next day & the girl remembered me & asked how jury duty was going!... More

Passing through Tucumcari is an annual event, and was SO TICKLED to find this gem on my way to the Teepee Curio shop! Substantive Americano and grilled panini with spinach, egg, ham n egg. Clean funky aviation/Route 66 themed dining area, sweet little patio. Friendly staff and patrons, great vibe!

Excellent coffee! The service was fabulous! The staff were so friendly. Try one of the sandwiches for breakfast or lunch. Load up on a great cup of Joe and take in all Tucumcari has to offer.
