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.

First off, this is a very small place where you place your order at the counter before having your food brought out to you. If you are looking for table side cooking or superior ambiance, this is not your place. However, if you are looking for quaint simplicity and amazing food, be sure to visit Coppa. We stopped in on...

The food is a 5 without question. Perfectly prepared food in what appears to me to be the French /N. Italian tradition. Really, truly well-prepared. The overall dining experience is a little... unique. It is counter-service and the runners are polite. But, considering the extremely high quality of the food, the dining experience is left shy of perfect without someone... More

Sunday brunch, line up to order at the counter, then food is delivered to your table. My husband had baked eggs, which were good; as was his Bloody Mary. I had a strawberry mimosa which was too sweet, I could hardly finish it. Also had a vegetable gratin thing in a small pan. Ick! Mostly potato with a little squash... More

My fellow Trip Advisors led me astray in searching for a good breakfast spot before leaving Flagstaff by recommending this place. I will just cut to the chase and list my complaints: The first thing you encounter is the absolutely horrid-looking seating out front which no one is sitting in; neither the woman at the counter nor the cook she...

Just found this place by Siri. It's just a little place in a strip mall, but what a find! Fell in love with the people and the exceptional quisine - haute Italian, delicious, original, and very relaxed..

In a small unassuming strip mall in Flagfrikkingstaff Arizona you will discover why life is too short to eat crappy food...surrounded by fast food garbage on every side you will accidentally wander into the GREAT and MIGHTY OZ...if you've never eaten at NYC or Paris you will discover what true ARTISTS can create.

Firstly, I'm a "foodie". I love dining out, and I don't mind paying $$$$ for great food. This meal was in the top 3 of my dining out experiences. Creative: pine butter, vegetable terrine done to perfection, basil marshmallow! Yummy. Service impeccable. Terrific wine suggestion. If I could change one thing it would be the crowded floor plan, but after... More

The Coppa is an excellent surpise package - we ate at several good restaurants in Flagstaff but the Coppa by far was the most delicious, well served, and most fun. True, it was my birthday, but that only influences so far. The duck was perfect - the hamberger our son ate spoiled me forever, the rabbit was great - as... More
