Best latte in twon

We like our lattes! So in Tucson, we were looking around. And found the best here. I don't know the secret. But there is a slight sweetness to the coffee as opposed to the typical bitter. It's not sugary or too sweet, just delicious. We didn't try the food but came back several times for the... read more

Okay, so I'm like Goldilocks. On my recent Tucson visit I checked out 6 coffee joints. Some are just too loud, and some are just too dineresque. And some, alas, have not special coffee. Crave is a keeper. Quality coffee drinks, nice atmosphere, friendly owner staff, and tasty food that even goes beyond a bakery case.

I spend a lot of time in Seattle so I wasn't expecting much when I dropped in here with a friend on a weekday afternoon.What I got was good coffee and great service in a nice ambiance. The usual suspects appeared on the offerings board but I became intrigued by the separate hot specialty drinks list and ended up ordering... More

Love this little hole in the wall with all the offerings of a coffee bar and a fresh, fun atmosphere for socializing as well as stopping in for a business meeting and eating a quick,healthy sandwich or salad, also it's a great place to sip on a hot beverage while studying for exams.

I met a friend for coffee. A macchiato made just like in the old country. We chatted but most of our fellow customers were working. Quieter than the pima county library, good WiFi, a very comfortable spot.

If you love coffee and mellow atmospheres, this is the place to go! Crave has the best coffee in Tucson, the owners are wonderful people with an old world sense of community and customer service. It is not huge, but it is good!!!!

Went here while vacationing in Arizona. I have never had a marocchino like I had in Milan until I tried Crave's. The chocolate marocchino was spot on. Brought back many memories of Italy. Also purchased a raspberry and white chocolate latte and a slice of fig and walnut pastry. The latte was perfect. The pastry was to die for. Absolutely... More

Vacationing in Tucson, escaping Wisconsin winter for awhile, and thrilled to find Crave. What a delightful and delicious coffee shop! I had the White and Black - yummy richness, even in the "skinny" version, and the best cranberry-orange scone ever. We'll be back!

Owned by a young couple who treat customers like family. Great coffees, teas and other drinks. Cozy coffee shop atmosphere. One of my favorite places to sit and enjoy a latte.
