delicious food

We really enjoyed our lunch here after visiting the Tucson Art Museum. The food was great (amazing desserts) and the staff were friendly and helpful. You order your food at the counter, then they bring it to you.

My husband and I discovered this cafe while visiting the Museum of Art and were really thrilled to see such an artistic setting. Cute little nook-like rooms as well as an outdoor patio, and lots of energy as there were quite a few people enjoying the spot.

Great outdoor dining. We had lunch on the patio. Good food and great ambiance. Right next to the Tucson Art Museum. Great temperature in March, could be a little hot in summer months. Plenty of shade.

Well, we seemed to have it just right tonight. Perfect Spring evening for outdoor dining in Tucson. Excellent live music, Judy (Owner/Manager) is an Uber-woman. We were seated outdoors in the wonderful covered patio with vines overhead and being Springtime, lots of sparrows in the vines. The music was wonderful, our server, Nikki was so friendly, professional and enthusiastic, the... More

Enjoyable brunch in a pleasant outdoor patio. Been a few times now and the food has always been good. It may get sunny, bring your hat.

This is a charming place just outside the Tucson Art Museum. Although you stand in line to place your order, any inconvience is soon forgotten when the food is delivered to your table. Everything is good (although being from the Pacific Northwest, I'd probably skip the salmon salad next time.) We have had soups, sandwiches, and salads - all beautifully... More

I love the location of this restaurant, in an old historic adobe home in the heart of downtown Tucson, by the Museum of Art. The patio is lovely, as is the interior. The food has been somewhat disappointing. The french fries are actually terrible. Both my husband and I felt quite awful for about 6 hours after eating the fries.... More

Went with my husband and four friends for a light supper. Choices were very good, and portions large. I agree with one of the reviewers who said the desserts looked outstanding. none of us had any room for dessert, but we did take some home! Will definitely go back.

The pkate had been left under the heat lamps wsy too long. My wfe's portobello burger was tough. But the salad that came with it was good.the patio was... More
