This is a very popular place. The morning we dined here with friends, the place was packed and every table was either occupied or contained dirty dishes. It appeared that they were very short-handed.

We have been her a couple of times because we have followed our favorite Server (Janice) from another restaurant. Good breakfast food and lots of choices. My daughter likes the Churro french toast. Tastes just like a churro. The staff is friend and they will also make sure that we get to sit in Janice's section or will switch tables.... More

Easy to find and lots of parking. Family run business with decent prices for better than average food. Had the pulled pork sandwich on homemade bun. Very good. The homemade pies were made with canned fillers and the pastry was the worst I have had. Recommend for a quick breakfast or lunch... go with no expectations.

When we are back in Arizona, it's always nice to go back to Sahuaro Cafe. The staff here are alway very helpful and friendly. We have always found the food very tasty and nicely prepared. If you have not been here yet, give them a try. I think you will be happy you did. Gary/Mark Thanks.

We had breakfast on Saturday morning. The place was very busy, and the only seats available were at the counter, but service was prompt and friendly. The staff clearly work together! The decor is nice -- don't let the strip-mall exterior throw you -- and the food was very good. The Sahuaro Cafe looks like The Place for breakfast in... More

What a great neighborhood find! Had to wait a few minutes to be seated & worth it! My first visit & my boyfriend's second & he was certainly right! Interesting menu, friendly service & was hard to decide because so many unusual choices. We both had their signature omelet & was so large I couldn't finish it but worth every... More

We have been to the Sahuaro Cafe several times. The food is never bad, but also never great, just unremarkable. For a small cafe the wait time between ordering and getting food seems to be on the far end of acceptable. It would be great if they offered some specials. On our most recent time at this cafe, my wife... More

The best breakfast in Oro Valley. Staff is friendly and on top of everything. Food is excellent. Only open till 2 pm for breakfast and lunch. If you have to wait well worth it.

Went on a Sunday morning and found a line-up. Took to seats at the counter and were served right away. Extensive breakfast menu featuring both traditional and Southwest items. It was packed and busy, but service was still reasonable and friendly. Cooks never stopped pushing out food and service staff remained attentive. Food was good and prices reasonable. Nice decor....

In three years I've found just two good breakfast spots in Oro Valley and this is one of them. This is one of those memorable very few breakfast spots that we've all encountered at one time or another ...but only find rarely. Open just for breakfast and lunch, the coffee is good, the quick service comes with a smile and... More
