This early 1900's historic hotel is in the heart of Tucson and has so much charm. Eating outside on the patio is a real joy too. Love the cast iron baked eggs for breakfast, good burger and salads for lunch and great fish tacos for...More

The Cup Cafe is in an historical hotel in the middle of downtown Tucson. On-street parking may be problematic, but there's an underground lot just across the street that's safe and secure. And while the hotel is spectacular, the restaurant is even better. Large breakfasts,...More

Special Dinner with my Wife. The food was excellent and the waiter had suggested a bottle of champagne that was superb. Great Night in A Great Hotel.

This place has good food and a great historic vibe in the heart of downtown Tucson. There are Dillinger days each year where they reenact the capture of John Dillinger.

Disappointed with lunch. Service was good but lunch was average. Inside dining area is small and needs updating. For a Historic hotel, the current ambiance is more like a college student hang out. Plenty of outdoor seating adjacent to a parking lot.

The Cup Cafe features an inventive menu with some super appetizers. In fact, I'd recommend combining several appetizers if you're not up to a full (and really filling) meal. The outdoor dining area is actually quieter than indoors. They have an amazing bar, many choices.
