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.

Great food, even better coffee

We went here twice our trip. The second time was because of the first experience. On our first, they were extremely busy, yet managed to get everything done quickly with a smile. The second trip, the staff seemed a bit...abrupt. Not rude, just very self-absorbed and non-communicative. No big deal... read more

We went here twice our trip. The second time was because of the first experience. On our first, they were extremely busy, yet managed to get everything done quickly with a smile. The second trip, the staff seemed a bit...abrupt. Not rude, just very self-absorbed and non-communicative. No big deal, just didn't really understand the difference. Absolutely fantastic coffee

This is where I go to celebrate my birthday each year and every chance I get! Can't beat the food, the staff, or the atmosphere! Make sure you check out the glass case to the left when you order your food-it is full of delicious goodies! This place is the best!

It's simply one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at. They focus on using the best ingredients and preparing them incredibly well. That seems simple to do but so many restaurants miss something in that process. Have never been disappointed in anything I've tried on the menu and am a devotee of Brian's soups and Paola's pastries.

This restaurant is by far the best in Flagstaff. Josephine's, Tinderbox, and Brix are not even close! If you are looking for large portions and uninspired usuals(that you could make just as good at home or better) DO NOT GO HERE. This is a place to experience the exciting and tasty creations of people who are truly passionate about what... More

Every time we go to Coppa we marvel at how wonderful it is! It's just a lovely little spot with outstanding food and service. Some of the best in Arizona, not just Flagstaff. If you are in the area you really must treat yourself!

My wife and I have been to Coppa a couple of times now and plan on returning each time we're in Flagstaff. Brian and Paola have adopted a simple, yet elegant approach to their menu which often times made me ask "how do they do that" because each item tasted was so remarkably good. The soup de jour (butternut squash)... More

Coppa is one of the best places to eat in Flagstaff. Brian and Paola do an amazing job, utilizing fresh, local ingredients whenever possible.

It took us four years to find this place. They offer food you don't expect in Flagstaff A couple own the place. He cooks and she is the pastry chef and server. They start you off with butter infused with pine bark and needles to accompany your fresh baked bread Both the salad with Dijon dressing and the creamy carmelized... More

Such a charming and creative restaurant in a very unexpected location. The food is quite creative and a certainly much higher level than one would typically find a mountain/college town in northern Arizona. My favorite dish was the root vegetable salad - an assortment of delicious vegetables, some uncooked and some cooked, and finished with a very lovely beet sorbet!

Our favorite time to dine here is Sunday Brunch, but we've been here many many dozens of times for lunch, dinner, specials (like the pig roast!) ==== Paola and Brian never fail to deliver the best meal yet. Consistently awesome. The soups are exquisite. The quiche flavors vary, however Brian outdoes himself with each one; each week its a new... More
