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.

We enjoyed lunch in this small, charming cafe that features locally obtained products and an eclectic menu. The service was wonderful--smiling and friendly wait staff who were friendly, courteous and professional. There was a very home town feel that made us want to return again both for lunch and dinner. There were some distractions. The charm was somewhat lessened by... More

Those watching their caloric intake need not go! This is French style cooking at it's best. We've mostly been for breakfast - the croquet madame is amazing, but their dinners are awesome too - risotto. Plus they have scrumptious desserts. Highly recommended!

who would expect a restaurant like this in Flagstaff. It is owned by a couple, internationally and nationally trained on both coasts, uses local ingredients and is highly creative. Flagstaff is a former logging community on the way to the Grand Canyon and is at 7,000 ft. This couple went to 8,500 to hand pick local mushrooms for their "special"... More

We have been to Coppa several times for dinner. Had lunch there yesterday. The food is wonderful and carefully prepared. It is nice to have Coppa in Flag as good cuisine is not found on every street corner here. Menu is broad for a small cafe. Something for everybody. Oh...the prices are very reasonable.

Wonderful meal. Foie gras was perfect as was the Sauternes. The local hand-picked wild mushroom pasta was unique, bursting with flavor - simply stunning. Looking forward to a return visit for a cheese and cured meat plate dinner

Exquisite evening. Everything was wonderful. Recommend the veal, fo grais, halibut, Cabo nara and the breads & desserts are to die for. Do not miss this little gem in Flagstaff.

We arrived here on Fri. at 12:20 for lunch to start our weekend off right. Only problem: they were sold out of the gratin I wanted and the replacement didn't appeal. My husband had quiche which he found to be a bit too eggy (and he likes egg). I had a Panini; the bread was stellar but the ricotta cheese... More

Thanks to Trip Advisory, we found this wonderful tiny bistro that serves gourmet meals! Everything we ordered was outstanding, and well worth the prep time wait! A GPS really help find the location and we arrived early. Highly recommend the high quality meal!

The Reuben Sandwich/ w fries was good, the Shepard pie just so-so. No complaints about service. I decided to try a strawberry tart for dessert and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would definitely return in the future.

I went there for a late Sunday brunch with a group and I think it is fair to say I was blown away. I had the second best croissants to date in the US (my croissant standards are high) and the food everyone had was superb. The place may not have the best location (some sort of a strip mall)... More
