Food was delicious. Ambience could have been much better. DJ way too loud; outdoor furniture was rickety; and tables inside too close. Will choose another destination next time.

We drove down from Glendale just to have breakfast in this lovely café and beautiful hotel. The cast iron eggs were amazing! Super cheesy and awesome. The historic hotel is just amazing to walk through and see everything. Also LOVE the penny's on the floor of the café! Will be back again and again!

Have been enjoying The Cup for 18 years now. Great ambiance at all times, for all ages. Food and drinks are excellent and their deserts are, in my opinion, the best in town. Staff is always attentive and friendly. With the expanded patio and many opportunities for live music, The Cup is a great place for people watching. Doggies are... More

Excellent food! Excellent service! Excellent environment! All the desserts looked amazing, but the Tres Leche is probably the best in town!

Prices were fair for a hotel restaurant. Food was good and freshly prepared. Service was very good. I liked that you had a choice of dining on the patio or inside. That works well for the cool Tucson mornings.

I love it when you can enjoy good food in an interesting historical location. This place fits the bill. We enjoyed breakfast and learned more about the infamous hotel guest. We will definitely put this place on our list to visit again.

As consolation for blowing a tire while driving 75 miles an hour toward Tombstone, my husband and I decided on a late lunch at Cup Cafe. He had spotted the Cuban sandwich on a previous visit, and had to try one. Glad we did. The sandwich was quite large (we shared it) and came with crispy fries. Definitely worth a... More

In the heart of downtown Tucson, not cheap, but great atmosphere and great coffee. Lovely outside area to watch the world go by.
