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

Four of us had dinner and the food was scrumptious and very affordable. The staff couldn't have been more attentive, friendly and helpful. This restaurant is so attractive and comfortable. We just love eating there!

Everything on the menu was appetizing..You must try the Croissant encrusted with parmesan and other ingredients. Just wonderful! The only minus was if you come at the height of the lunch crowd you may have a long wait for your food!

Tucked away in a historic building near the art museum is a go to place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Reasonably priced and delicious. Try their brisket. Dinner service is new but the small but creative menu does not miss. Desserts are the highlight of this restaurant and their cakes are the best in town. Weather permitting sit on the... More

We were in the area to explore the Presidio District. We initially stopped in this cafe to get change for the parking meter. They were very nice and gave us change without requiring that we make a purchase. This kindness, and the fact that the interior was so cool made this place our choice for lunch. Upon entering from the... More

A Relation booked this out for the night for a post-wedding party - GREAT choice. They served a three course buffet which was delicious. Starters served at table and then a choice of two options (fish and Beef Brisquet, from an orginal choice of 10+ options) for their 80 or so guests. Iced Beer, wine and kids drinks served from...

I have come here a few times for lunch and especially enjoy the setting -- an old adobe building (former home) with many small rooms and a lovely outdoor patio. This is very "Old Tucson" and a nice place to eat breakfast or lunch when visiting the adjacent Tucson Museum of Art. The staff is always friendly, professional and helpful.... More

Cafe a la C'art is a lovely cafe with indoor and outdoor seating. It is housed in one of the historical adobe homes connected with the Art Museum. The ambience is great whether dining inside or out.
