Hotel we stayed at had weak coffee and wanted full throttle caffeine fix. Circa delivered the fix I needed to get on the road to Kansas. Great service .

I saw this place while driving by and had to give it a try. Unique like everything else on this section of Route 66. The staff was excellent and made great suggestions. I tried an iced americano with half and half and white chocolate drizzle! Would go back if in town.

We stayed the night at the cool retro motor inn connected to this quaint coffee shop with a retro airplane motif, so for breakfast the next day it was a given that we'd check it out. I had the carmel macchiato, which i considered the best I'd had. They have a nice selection of sandwiches made with your choice of... More

After spending the night in Tucumcari, I stopped by Circa and ordered a caramel macchiato. It was fantastic! I will definitely be stopping here again on my next visit to Tucumcari. There are plenty of neat retro elements to look at while waiting on your order.

This place serves a great need in Tucumcari: great coffee! It's a modern solid coffee shop in an otherwise stuck-in-1950 town. They have alternative milk, organic and all-natural offerings; it's a sprinkle of cosmopolitanism in a small, quirky town. I love the quirk and history of Tucumcari but I also love a big-city coffee option when it comes to my... More

Located on the Old Historic Route 66 Motel grounds, this is a great place to enjoy breakfast. Lots of Cold War memorabilia and a strong WiFi signal. The food is great! People are friendly!

Great coffee and panini! The place was clean and offered inside and outside seating. It was warm inside so we ate outside. We had breakfast panini's and they were good. Coffee refills are 99cents.
