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

We went Memorial Day morning for breakfast. We have been here quite a few times over the last two years. The food is always good and the service is good as well. This morning however, there were only two waitresses for the whole room, and every table was taken. Despite being short staffed, they were still friendly if a bit... More

Found this place while driving though the shopping mall looking for a place to eat breakfast. I ordered the breakfast burrito and my wife ordered the Denver omelet, with a biscuit and gravy on the side. The wait staff were very friendly and kept the coffee mugs full. The breakfast burrito was OK, and the refried beans were (well, they... More

We stopped in based on reviews. We should have heeded the warning about a lot of food and shared an omelet. The california omelet was chockful with mushrooms, tomatoes, avocado etc. it was really good. Wait staff were very attentive and friendly.
