I've been eating at Cafe A La C'art for years. Tucson old-timers know (and I've heard... I've only lived here for 15 years) that this was actually the original location for Janos' (the famous Tucson chef) restaurant. They've recently (in the past year or so) expanded into all of the old rooms. The beautiful rooms indoors are filled with art (and, recently, with lots of people dining!). Their outdoor seating is at tables under big umbrellas -- with a long mosaic mural added to the walls a few years ago. They've expanded their hours to include breakfast and dinner.
The food is fabulous. Another reviewer recommended the walleye; Judy (the friendly owner) told a Minnesotan friend of mine and me that the chef flies in the walleye from Minnesota. My lunchtime favorite is the Cuban sandwich with fries...delicious comfort food to die for. I'm in California now, but just writing this review makes me hungry to be back here. Go! (And visit the museum, as well as the historic houses, before or after your meal.)
