Best ever

Vacationing in Tucson, escaping Wisconsin winter for awhile, and thrilled to find Crave. What a delightful and delicious coffee shop! I had the White and Black - yummy richness, even in the "skinny" version, and the best cranberry-orange scone ever. We'll be back!

Owned by a young couple who treat customers like family. Great coffees, teas and other drinks. Cozy coffee shop atmosphere. One of my favorite places to sit and enjoy a latte.

After three tries we decided Crave is just not our cup of Joe. The espresso drinks have an odd, licorice aftertaste, and the shop is not especially clean. The staff is friendly and helpful.

My carmel latte was perfect! My daughter enjoyed a frappacino and the ambience was great. Loved the outdoor seating too.

Yes, all of the reviews about the fabulous coffee drinks are true; however, I must also point out that Crave has fantastic pastries (on par with the Beyond Bread, the best of the best, I think, and Babylon Market good, if we're talking baklava). I've consumed several different kinds of pastries (chocolate mousse cake, peanut butter fudge, various cookies, baklava,... More

I spent many years working in Europe. One the things I miss is a great cappuccino. I've tried dozens of coffee shops and the big national chains. The best they can provided is an imitation of the real thing. I about gave up on finding a good cappuccino in the US before stumbling on this little espresso bar. The gentleman... More

This is by far the best place to have the perfect latte and beyond. I love the relaxed atmosphere and the friendliness of the owners. I've tried a lot of other well-renown places for coffee in Tucson and I must say that Crave steals the show in every way. Bonus: The owner's mom makes home-made easter European style cakes. Delicious!

A friend told me their coffee was good. It definetly was. Had a Honeycomb Latte and it was great. Their roast has that chocolatey hint of flavor that I really like.
