“Good breakfast at a good price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Viv's serves a good breakfast at a good price. Their biscuits and gravy are really good - light biscuits and tasty gravy. My husband really likes their omelets. We've also eaten lunch here a couple of times, and the sandwiches were excellent both times. This is a great, informal, little restaurant here on the East side. We're lucky to have them.

“It's no Frank's!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Got the corned beef hash which was out of a can and undercooked. The chorizo and eggs were so salty I couldn't put them in my mouth. The biscuit gravy was good though. Unremarkable, probably won't be back.

Great place for breakfast or lunch. Had the roast beef special today and it was very good. Hubby had a Denver omelet.

“Eastside's Best Diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Viv and Mike welcome everyone by name, as many of the customers are regulars. The service is always cheerful, the food is consistently good, and the atmoshphere is upbeat. Great value. Tucson Eastsiders are grateful to have Viv's Cafe in our neighborhood. If you are looking for a true diner-style eatery, see you at Viv's!

“Wonderful food & service they treat you like family.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012 via mobile

Every one here is great and the food is just like mom or grandma used to make. You have to try the roast beef melt its to die for.
