A Enjoyable Breakfast for the Community

I go here often for breakfast and lunch. The service, flavors, atmosphere, options and specials are consistently good. Definitely not an high end or sophisticated experience; it's tailored for the older retirees. This is community cafe where everyone knows everyone.

The views are stunning and some of the best in Oro Valley. We had not been here for a couple of years. It was okay the last time we were there, but they have since changed the menu and the food was fabulous. I recommend the "black and blue chicken sandwich" a grilled chicken breast with blue cheese. The service... More

Our fiends' previous, pleasant Happy Hour experiences made them want to share that time there with us. We were delighted with the evening. A cocktail on the patio with it's lovely mountain view would have been enough to call the night a success. However, the facts that the appetizers & entrees were reasonably priced & delicious, there was musical entertainment... More

Serving breakfast and lunch as well as a limited happy hour menu makes it something for any part of your day. The daily lunch specials are very good and varied. Relax on the terrace with a drink and enjoy the view.

The Cafe hired a new manager a few months ago and that has made all the difference. Chris Sapp has brought about amazing improvements. Better food and far better service. The Friday Happy Hours with terrific live entertainment and really good HH selections are worth the trip. There is an entertainment free HH on Thursdays with the same food and... More

Cafe at Sun City is a delightful place to have a meal. Great food and fabulous views. We have had breakfast and lunch here often and I have never been disappointed. Great chef and wonderful, friendly wait staff. There is also a wonderful patio to enjoy your meal outside.

Nice cafe atmosphere, pleasant staff, and decent food. Nothing over the top but we stop by occasionally because it is close to the house.

We are so delighted to read that you had a wonderful experience at The Cafe recently. Thank you so much for the kind compliments. Late afternoon dining is pleasant, and Fall is right around the corner, making patio dining an absolute must. Nothing like enjoying a good meal while admiring such magnificent views.
