Ranked #10 of 280 restaurants in Flagstaff
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Cuisines: European, French, Café, Bistro
Dining options: Breakfast/Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, Reservations
Description: Coppa is a European-style cafe/bistro set amidst the mountains of Flagstaff serving lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. While northern Arizona might at first seem an unlikely dining destination for serious epicureans, Coppa Cafe's combination of talent and unconventional procurement methods have set the small, casual eatery atop the "can't miss" list of every discerning foodie from Phoenix to Santa Fe. Choosing to go against the grain of the franchise and chain restaurants often found in smaller-town America, husband and wife owners and chefs Brian Konefal and Paola Fioravanti instead favor house-cured meats, ingredients locally procured from nearby farms and ranches and foraged foods found in the forests around Flagstaff to incorporate into their dishes. Though their procurement methods might seem unconventional for the region, their talents are rooted in tradition, following lifelong culinary careers spent crisscrossing Europe and the U.S., Training under the tutelage of some of the finest and most decorated chefs in their respective countries. As Coppa's tagline states, the tiny, intimate venue offers "a taste of Europe in the mountains of Flagstaff," and the culinary team prides itself on providing just that through balancing local finds with progressive techniques, resulting in an unprecedented, sophisticated and pilgrimage-worthy experience.

Seriously, if you are in Flagstaff, or just passing through, please take the time to experience Coppa Cafe. I started going here when the first opened and when I did move away I was sad I wouldn't be able to have my weekly visit. The owners are not only lovely, but very talented.I couldn't give you a recommendation on the... More

Unlike many Flagstaff restaurants, Coppa Cafe refuses to cut corners and always delivers a top quality, gourmet dining experience every time. Very few restaurants consistently exceed my expectations as well as Coppa Café. Do not miss this hidden gem!

Unique Flagstaff dining experience. Consistently excellent food and the best pastries anywhere, with live background music on certain days. Keeps getting better.

We have been to most restaurants in Flagstaff and had to check out the Coppa Café to see what all the praise was about. Food was excellent, although pricey for Flagstaff, but I cannot give 5 stars because: - When we arrived with reservations on a summer Friday night, we were asked if we wanted to sit on the patio....

My wife and I really enjoy this place. Have been there twice for lunch. You MUST try the french fries. The best ever!!!! The aoili sauce on the side is wonderful. Enjoyed the baked meatball and also loved the turkey sandwich. My wife says the chicken salad is very good. A tad on the pricey side, but worth it. And,... More

Had lunch with my family and ordered the shepherd's pie and baked meatballs. For the prices, I expected a larger portion but it was not to be. Also, the food wasn't that great and the salad was over seasoned, making it very sour. Wait staff practically ignored the fact that my toddler was having a meal with us and did... More

A group of 10 cousins went to Coppa Café this past Saturday for dinner. We had a wonderful time and left waddling out. My end of the table started with a three cheese plate and an order of prosciutto (made in house) all of which made us very happy. I continued with the steak frites (locally sourced) and tried to...

Lovely little place, wonderfully interesting dishes. Visited two nights. Enjoyed halibut special. Had it pushed again second night, different sauce, after eagerly looking forward to trying something else. Did very much enjoy sharing enormous and flavorful venison shank. Everything here is very unique, and quite delicious. Second night somewhat disturbed when chef/server berated other server. Very tiny place several diners... More
