Went on a Saturday morning, near 830. Seated right away, serviced immediately. Their salsa is very different from what I expected, I was pleasantly surprised!

We are visiting the area and decided to give the Sahuaro Cafe a try. We received a friendly greeting upon entering, and the service continued to be strong after that. Coffee and water arrived promptly, and so did our food. My husband had the Denver omelette and biscuit and gravy, both of which he declared excellent. I had the huevos... More

Open at 6:00 am, Sahuaro is perfect for those with an early appointment elsewhere. Lots of typical choices, but many with an excellent Southwest character. Excellent omelettes! An interesting twist for those not on a diet is the option for biscuits & gravy rather than toast, as an accompaniment for eggs.

With all the trappings of a great breakfast spot I'm happy to see nothing has changed since last winter. Great menu, quick friendly service and fantastic food. As a seasonal visitor, this continues to be our go to spot for a great morning meal. Have to try lunch someday soon :). Did I mention the coffee is good?

I really hate to tell people about this wonderful little restaurant. It is already busy beyond words. The service is fantastic and the food, yum! Only open for breakfast and lunch, but worth the drive if you live down in Tucson. Small little shopping center with a Safeway and gas station. Everything you need to get back down town!

We went early Sunday morning like 7:30. Very friendly and attentive staff. Corned beef breakfast was great. Eggs benedict was so-so, eggs overdone and hollandaise seemed broke. Hash browns good, coffee good, prices good. We will return. We like the home cooked style and friendly servers.

Four of us picked Sahuaro Café based on your reviews. We really enjoyed it. Our friends split the breakfast tacos. They thoroughly enjoyed them. My wife and I shared a California omelet. We too enjoyed ours. Both were freshly made and served hot. The service was good and friendly. It seemed like we were the only non- locals there for... More
