Cafe A La C'art is a jewel of a cafe in Tucson. The food is excellent and the environment is cozy and beautiful. I've been coming here for years and the consistancy of the food is amazing. The menu consists of really well prepared dishes with top notch ingedients. I have been to catered affairs and Cafe A la C'art... More

We really think all the items we have had here over the years, including the especially tantalizing desserts. We enjoy eating outside, weather permitting, but the inside rooms are cozy and comfortable, too.

This remains one of our favorite restaurants in Tucson. The food is exceptional and the desserts are the most delightful. They boast that they have one of the only French pastry chefs in the entire southwest and the desserts never disappoint. The owners, Mark and Judy, are personable and very involved in making the visit enjoyable. They constantly strive to... More

If you spend a day in Tucson this ought to be one of your meal stops. We visited on a Sunday and sat outside. Our lunches were delicious and we didn't see a meal go by us that didn't make our mouths water. Especially attentive service was frosting on a wonderful cake.

A perfect spot for lunch if you're in the area.....we were visiting Tucson and went to the Museum's Spring Art Fair this past weekend. We had reservations for lunch at the cafe and arrived on time, seated quickly and placed our order at the counter.....it took a little while to have our food brought to the table, but we were...

This is a cute little cafe next to the Tucson Museum of Art. You order your food deli-style, you're given a number for your table, and when it's ready, the food is served at your table. This is a great little place with indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor seating is covered by a canopy of vines so you're not... More

We were on our way to Phoenix and found this cafe on Tripadvisor. They were very helpful in directing us to their cafe. We then had a great lunch on their outdoor patio. The patio was covered with very comfortable with a nice breeze. The sandwiches we had were excellent and the selection was also very good. It was close... More

Located in one of the old mansions of the Museum of Art and a family owned business. There are small intimate rooms or an inside cafe area but if the weather is good, definitely sit out on the patio. It can get very busy for a weekend lunch, so get there early, particularly on the first Sunday of the month... More

The chai here is very spicy and tasty. The red velvet cake was crazy good with a fab cream cheese frosting. A cherry scone was very good as well.
