We were looking for lunch before going to the art museum and this place is part of the museum complex. Cute and warm environment and absolutely delicious soup (me) and salad (him). What a treat.

Everything was wonderful - don't know where to start! We went for dinner. Love the location, next to the museum, and both the interior and the artfully tiled patio are beautiful. The Territorial style building is a treat in itself and the artwork really adds to the unique ambiance. We will bring guests here in the future as it is... More

I just submitted a review of the present exhibit at the Tucson Art Museum and mentioned this place as an added attraction but used the wrong name. My "Café d'Art" is not that but "Café A La C'art". My apologies, and do try it for a meal in combination with a visit to the museum or a lone destination. You'll... More

We visit the Tucson Museum of Art often. This is their on-site café. They always have a nice selection for lunches, but you have to line up to place the orders and there is no space for the line. Then you have to find a table - it's just a bit awkward. Improve your process and you have a winner!

Could not asked for a better lunch selection in a fabulous outdoor seating space. Great butter pecan cookies and salads. This is not a 5 star gourmet restaurant but a museum cafe that had excellent and creative salad ingredients and food of that sort in a really nice setting. We went cause we went to the museum right next door... More

We stopped in after a trip to the art museum for a lecture this evening. What a nice experience. Service was fast and friendly and the food was excellent. We started with the mussels app and then shared a Cuban sandwich and then took a Chocolate bomb home for dessert. Very Nice!!

Tucked into the west side of the Tucson Museum of Art block, Café A La C'art is our go-to choice for business lunches and dinners. Out-of-town visitors are totally charmed by the beautiful Territorial adobe building, the latilla ceilings, and the mosaic-covered shady patio. Window seats are cozy for solo diners. Service is impeccable. Menu choices all have a special... More

Enjoyed breakfast here with family on a Sunday morning. Ate out on their back patio. They had musicians playing. Everyone enjoyed their frittatas. I would return here just for the nice relaxing atmosphere.

This place has great good. We ate there several times , trying their breakfast and their dinner. All was excellent plus they have live music at night. The only thing is they only serve dinner toward the end of the week do don't try to go on a Tuesday or a Monday. If you're on a diet stay away from... More
