When you walk into the Hotel Congress, it's like going back in time to the wild wild west. It has great history and a fun ambiance. The Cup Cafe is a small diner inside of Hotel Congress. But, in the nice weather is has a great patio. The food was delicious. We went there for lunch and it was a... More

Great ambience! Great menu! I always have the tuna nicoise salad with the purple potatoes and soft boiled egg. Never disappointed! Great light and parking is convenient.

We shared a lovely Tucson am downtown at the Hotel Congress. Breakfast was leisurely and tasty. It was a bit slow and expensive but we were not into rushing anyway. Coffee and water refills were plentiful. RECOMMEND.

A last-minute decision to eat a late breakfast here turned out to be a great move. We sat on the patio, which makes for fun people (and dog) watching. Service was prompt and friendly and our waiter helped us choose from the menu. Both meals were good, but the corned beef hash and poached eggs dish was truly outstanding. The... More

Stopped here with friends after a funeral. Needed something to pick me up, and this place did exactly that. Extensive breakfast menu. Hard to decide what to order. Interestingly, all four of us ordered the same thing: the Gunpowder. Potatoes, covered with turkey chorizo, topped with two eggs of your choice, and cheese and toast. Didn't need lunch, and may...

Have eaten here twice and enjoyed two different experiences. Had breakfast outside on the patio on a beautiful spring morning. Interesting, and filling, choices with a southwestern edge. Well prepared and competently served by a wait staff that had a fair distance to tote all this food (there were seven of us). Kept the coffee refilled, and were quick to... More

This coffee shop inside of the Hotel Congress is wonderful. Always has been...even when this part of town was 'up and coming'. the art, the penny floor' and the food....oh wait...and the coffee...and the PIE! It's always great to go there again.

Cast iron baked eggs. Creamy cheesy wonderful. We ate breakfast here twice while staying at the hotel. The pancakes with walnuts mixed in were also good, but didn't beat those eggs. Also had dinner here - steak for him, jambalaya for me. Jambalaya was good, and I couldn't finish it all.
