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. The food is delicious and the desserts are huge!! We ate several meals there during our stay in Tucson. It's definitely worth a... More

Had lunch yesterday at this limited-hours cafe, second time I've been there. Creative choices (grapejuice mimosa with rosemary was unusual but very refreshing; all the salads and sandwiches sounded interesting, hard to make a selection), fresh greens, and desserts to die for. Don't go another week without having their chocolate bomb; life's too short.

I've been going to Cafe A La C'art for about three or four years now, and so have my family and many many friends under my suggestion! A family member introduced me when he worked down town and discovered the adorable little cafe and since then it's been a hit. The staff have always been wonderful. We've never had a... 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.

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...
