great combo of art and food

a great opportunity to visit the museum and then enjoy lunch at the café with friends. All of our group's luncheon entrees were delicious and sitting in the outside area was enjoyable and relaxing.

I return to Cafe a La C'art every few weeks for breakfast or lunch because I am never disappointed in the food. The sandwiches and salads are always very good and the desserts are outstanding. The staff has never failed to be pleasant and efficient. Until allergy season hits, I enjoy sitting out on the delightful patio that is covered... More

We spotted this charming cafe while visiting the museum and decided to go back. We have eaten there twice and will go again. We love the ambiance, eating under a grape arbor with light flickering through the leaves, the colorful mosaics, the staff, music and other customers. We have ordered the four appetizers with a glass of wine and it's... More

When you have a chance, check this place out for a Sunday morning gathering place. If you get there in time you can get a table out on the patio under the awnings. Very relaxing and the food is very good. Bottomless cup of coffee and lots of great choices on the menu.

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.
