BLUF: home cooking, done better than most of us could manage. Their new name is "The Little One", same owner, same food..just different name. The Huevos Rancheros were some of the best I've had around. Perfectly done eggs with a delicious salsa and salad and fresh fruit and Pinto's and warm corn Tortilla's...quite a spread for around $8. The service... More

Little Cafe Poca Cosa is the best Mexican Cuisine in Tucson. It's not traditional Sonoran food, but an unbelievable breakfast & lunch spot. Any one of my family of 5 drive out of our way to go downtown @ least 2X per week. You go for the food, but partake in an entire experience. Sandra is a wonderful chef, who... More

Food was average, nothing special. More of serving finger food and paying full price meals. I guess it's still a trend for the college students to pay $$ for food that won't fill you up.

Fabulous. Incredible. Wonderful. And more. Great presentation. Mole to die for. Tamale perfection. Always like home cooked or better. We love this place and want the world to know. As good as it get. Yum. Period.

Too pretty to eat! Visually strong, tasty, super fresh ingredients and the owner is a riot and just someone you wanna do business with. Oh and reasonably priced, about $8. I have gone out of my way to eat there.

I used to live in Tucson twenty years ago. When we lived here cafe Poca Cosa was our favorite restaurant. We never had little cafe Poca cosa, but the bigger restaurant was closed the week we were there. We went and the food was as good as we remembered. My kids loved it. The only thing I missed about the... More

I eat at Little Cafe Poca Cosa every day I get a day off. I am always surprised at the freshness and the homemade quality for the value. I wish every restaurant were like this. I have in in many states and countries, but I always return to Poca Cosa because it impresses me most.

I never got a hug by the owner of a restaurant before...but that's what we got after a lunch at Little CPC. There is always a surprise choice on the menu...they pick for you. Preparation of meal was superb... Everything made with fresh ingredients. Not a big place, but they serve a very happy clientele. Owner is sister of owner... More

Had to go downtown for jury duty. On the bright side, it got me to eat at this little gem of a restaurant. Loved the surprise plate. You really can't go wrong with any of the choices. But know this is a cash only place so make sure you have enough before going in. Also, go early because parking is... More

Tucson resident who frequently eats at Little Cafe Poca Cosa for lunch and thought I should add a review. I often eat at Cafe Poca Cosa and several years ago I started eating at Little for lunch. Only breakfast and lunch served here. No alcoholic beverages -- wonderful fruit drinks, fruit-flavored lemonades and horchata more than make up for it.... More
