Update restaurant details
Ranked #4 of 276 restaurants in Flagstaff
Certificate of Excellence 2013
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.

Coppa Cafe is one of our favorite restaurants in Flagstaff! My husband and I come here quite a few times a month...mostly on weekends for lunch or the Sunday brunch. We also come with friends and family for special occasion dinners or when they do specialty nights. The owners, a husband and wife, are the chef and run the front... More

We have dined at Coppa Cafe numerous times and it is always excellent . The owners take great care to make everything from scratch using only the best ingredients. The menu is creative, seasonal and always appealing, something you would expect to find in a larger, cosmopolitan city.

Coppa is always fantastic and has become our favorite restaurant. Every dish is amazing! For lunch the Reuben and fries is to die for. Dinner atmosphere is fancier than expected but comfortable and we don't hesitate to take our kids (ages 5 and 10). Paola and the staff are very welcoming and we are never disappointed at Coppa. Don't forget... More

The food is superb, perfectly done with homemade local ingredients and delicate presentation. Brunch in Sundays is not to be missed! Their dinners are not "Flagstaff" cheap, but seriously he hangs and hand carves local veal and venison does charcuterie from scratch. If you were to pay for a meal like this in any other major city it would be... More

What an amazing meal! As soon as we read a glowing article in the AZ Republic about Coppa Cafe and Chef's foraging for ingredients in the forest, we knew we wanted to visit. We'd recently returned from a trip to Scandinavia, where all of the chef's we came across were making incredible dishes from foods they'd gathered in the forests... More

The first time my fiance and I went to Coppa Cafe was on a whim. We try every local restaurant possible and avoid chains. Due to the location we didn't realize that it was a little fancier than the places around us but that was fine and a nice surprise. We enjoyed every morsel of food! We even got desserts... More

I have been to Coppa numerous times and never let a chance go by to recommend it to others. It is in my top 5 list of favorite eateries in Flagstaff. I love the local inspired specials they come up with. The fabulous soups. The heavenly desserts. The selection of drinks. The quaint atmosphere. I love Coppa! It always makes... More

The ambiance of this restaurant is not high class, it's quirky and eclectic and interesting. The food, however, is very high class! It is inventive, and amazing in both appearance and taste. The french fries are the best I've ever eaten. The salmon melts in your mouth. The pastries are unlike baked goods normally found in US bakeries. The pastry... More

I was shocked when I read about Coppa Cafe in Phoenix Magazine and I didn't know about it. We are part time Flag residents and eat out all the time and how did I not know this great restaurant was in town. The food is inventive, fresh and cooked and served with such care. Yes, it's slightly off putting that... More

Coppa Cafe is hands down THE BEST restaurant in northern Arizona. The food is so fresh and extremely tasteful and the service is impeccable. It was such a surprise and is something you would expect at a 5 star fine dining establishment in NYC. I cannot wait to go up to Flagstaff just for the food!
