A lovely gentle delicious experience

The food is very good and fresh and much thought goes into the ingredients, it seems, of many of the dishes here. The quiche is superb as are the salads. The coffees and teas are sublime. And you feel tucked away as you sit in any part of the courtyard. It's a place you can sit for hours, meet... read more

I have eaten here a few times and have always been very impressed. The service is very slow but the food is yummy. (The quiche (brunch menu on Sat Sun) was probably the best I have ever had!) They have many options for seating including a nice outdoor area (they do have smoking in the way back but most of... More

The atmosphere here is everything. It IS Tucson. If it isn't unbearably hot, sit outside. It has an artsy, eclectic feel- with simple, delicious food. If you just want to spend the morning or afternoon doing some homework, writing, reading or meeting with a good friend, this is the perfect place. It is relaxed and ideal for taking your time...

Best spicy chai latte ever. And the outdoor seating was just so beautiful! I am excited to go back and soak it all in some more.

We went here for lunch; maybe it is better for just coffee or breakfast. I ordered the avocado panini and the avocado was rock hard, not remotely ripe. The food took a long time to come out and our table was sticky.

The service was not good and the place didn't seem clean. The menu was odd and it was not easy to find something I liked.

We would say this not so little coffee café is not so past it's prime as it's name may imply, or are they naming with tongue-in-cheek? I go for cheeky. I can comment that this is a very popular hang-out. It looks small from the front but it goes waaaay back with outdoor patio seating. Definitely a hip crowd hang... More

I asked the bartender where the no-smoking section was; he pointed to the room west of the bar. There sat someone smoking away, at the table nearest the bar. I pointed this out; the bar tender seemed unconcerned, but did ask the gentleman to move a short distance away, around a corner, where you could still smell the smoke. I... More

I love how this place has both the loose leaf tea and tea bag options. I love how they are so grateful for the business, especially with all the construction going on. Oh, how I enjoyed being outside. The sound of water, it was very relaxing and I was so glad to be there. I've heard people highly recommend this... More
