On Saturday and Sunday the restaurant offers a breakfast menu up to 11 a.m. We enjoyed authentic breakfasts. I had molee breakfast burritos and my husband had huevos rancheros.

I was a little nervous since this restaurant was rated over 100, but it was close to my appointment. From a distance it looks like a nice restaurant in Old Mexico. Inside they served the best Bloody Mary I have had in years. We ate two bowls if their tasty salsa. They served us quickly as I had an appointment... More

Excellent Mexican food. Good prices, too. Fresh flour and corn tortillas are constantly coming off the grill. Soups, specials, and all around good food.

I stopped by Mosaics for breakfast after seeing it on my Diners, Dives and Drive-ins app and ordered their recommended Huevos Rancheros (I added the Chorizo for an extra $2). The breakfast was excellent on its own, but when drowned in Theresa's Salsa it was out of this world. Hands down the best Salsa I've ever had.

They had me at the handmade tortillas! This is a very casual, open layout restaurant with windows that face the mountains in the distance. The food was fresh, with great flavors and plenty of variety. The guacamole and salsa were super. Our service was prompt and helpful. Nothing but good things to say about this place - very convenient if... More

We spent several days in Albuquerque and missed out on sopapillas there. I started looking online for sops on the way home to Az. Found a good review at Teresa's Mosaic Cafe in Tucson. Oh my, I have never been so disappointed in an expectation in my life. We did not find the puffy airy pillowy sopapillas that we were... More

You can't really go wrong with a bean and cheese burro. Mine was very good. Both of my friends enjoyed their meals, too. The best part was the view. If you're looking for an amazing view of the Santa Catalinas at sunset, this is the place to be.

Stopped by with others from work. We have traveled down to Tucson from phoenix for a meeting and we're looking for a different place to eat before heading back. One of our group had been to this resturant before and recommended we try the Mosaic. Tucson can be a tough place to find good food, while the are many average... More

We returned to the restaurant to catch breakfast even though we rarely do so while traveling. We like to always find a new place to eat but decided to chance another meal. Should have thought that through more! We arrived after the breakfast rush so there was no wait to be seated. We quickly got water and salsa (no chips... More
