Descent food at very reasonable prices!

Greatest view of the Santa Catalina mountains while eating your breakfast or lunch...especially outside! Soup, salads, sandwiches for lunch, and excellent breakfasts! Very easy to access and good parking.

This cafe was originally just a place for grabbing a quick lunch and a beer after a round of golf. Basic sandwiches, burgers, salads... Then this new GM came (wish I could recall his name; he always checks in with every table) and what a HUGE difference! It's now a GREAT Restaurant-experience, with destination-worthy dining! The food is now--without exception--prepared... More

Been here a couple times and always get the quiche. They change types every week but they're always good. 3 kinds of potatoes and I like the hash browns best. Next time in Tucson's Sun City, try it out.

Gave it two visits: One weekday and other weekend. The view of the Catalina Mountains is lovely, and the reason we gave it a second chance. As the sign stated, "please wait to be seated,"we did just that. And we waited without an acknowledgment that we were standing there, as if it was the noon rush, even though there were... More

First, please allow me to apologize for the less than perfect experience at the Café.

I have lived in this community for about 14 years. Over the years many people have been fired and replaced. Including the entire wait staff a few years ago.

The food is good, but not great. Great views and right next to The Views Golf Club The local Sun City residents all eat here. Good for breakfast and lunch not always open for dinners. Quite busy Sunday mornings. Good service with great views of The Catalina Mountains

Being a resident, we eat at the grill 2 to 4 times a week. Breakfasts are excellent and the pastries are made fresh each day. For the last few months, the turnover of cooks has been very obvious. The daily soups used to be excellent. The Friday specials are usually Clam Chowder, Alternating Manhattan and New England. With our old... More
