The best darn Cafe in Tucson. The Burgers are thick and juicy, grilled to perfection. I've had burgers all over Tucson and you can't beat The Cup Cafe. All food menu items are very tasty. We've dined her many times since they opened. I use to go to another Burger Place, not any longer. The service is top notch. I... More

This is a quaint little restaurant which seems to be packed all the time. It's noisy but the food is worth the waiting and noise. Service was great and the quiche of the day was amazing and huge. We also had the corn beef hash which my husband said was the best he's ever had. We added a half order... More

Every time I've ordered the fish tacos, I've felt loved. Everything is just so. The soft warm tortillas, lightly dusted with flour, the crisp, hot, delicate, fish, the pungent cabbage, and tangy lime aioli . . . it's all amazingly put together. It taste like someone with a carrying touch did everything just right to make your experience something special.... More

Although a little pricier than other places, this is a great breakfast/brunch place in downtown Tucson! I've also really enjoyed dinner there

A Tucson classic in the hotel where Dillinger was captured. Excellent food with classic flavor. Beautiful desserts. Parking can be a challenge.

Good menu selection to choose from. They have some god looking dressers too. By the appearance, you wouldn't think the food is that good, but you'd be wrong. They have a small indoor area and a nice patio.

Great place to hangout after work when visiting Tucson . When all people from different shows we met hangout together the place turns into a party zone, the bar at the lobby is best with great signature drinks
