We stumbled into Cafe Passe on a road trip and couldn't have been luckier. The staff was incredibly helpful and suggested several points of interests for us to check out. The icing on the cake was the beautiful courtyard in the back that was magically 20 degrees cooler than the rest of Tucson. The Bruce Lee (iced) was just the... More

This place is gorgeous. But the food is basic and overpriced. I ordered a breakfast sandwich and it was so dry. I know I asked for it to not come with the honey and cheese but it just so dry and flavorless. Its like they didn't even use salt or pepper. They do offer space in the back for poetry... More

As a tourist passing through Tucson – but one who likes Tucson and has been there before – I wanted to put in a good word for Café Passé. This is an eatery that knows what it is doing in the kitchen, even if the service, I will agree, is a touch slow. Just from the menu, such as the... More

I enjoyed Cafe Passe which provided fresh food (sandwich) and drink. I was a little surprised by the German meat orientation of the menu that limited my options, but I did find something and it certainly was good. Seating options at the bar, the table area or the outside back area allow enough options to suit anyone's needs. This was... More

This was my favorite Fourth Ave hangout. The food used to be really good - now it's average. The music and the outdoor setting used to be excellent - now it seems tired. It's time for this special little place to wake up, hit refresh, and get back to being an outstanding oasis in the Desert. Location is great. And... More

Went this past Sunday (3/15/15) and discovered that Cafe Passé is exactly that passé. THE worst restaurant experience I've had in a while anywhere; I should have known something was not right when my buddy who placed an order for a bagel and side salad but had to wait half an hour for his order, and only received it when...

Ive been going to Cafe Passe for the last 4 years. Besides de wait time being long sometimes, the food and cofe drinks are great. Ive never had any complains besides the slow service. However, i went today 3/14/15 to order my regular double latte and they just changed the price to $5!!! It used to be $3.75 until about... More

The food is very good and fresh and much thought goes into the ingredients, it seems, of many of the dishes here. The quiche is superb as are the salads. The coffees and teas are sublime. And you feel tucked away as you sit in any part of the courtyard. It's a place you can sit for hours, meet friends,... More

I have eaten here a few times and have always been very impressed. The service is very slow but the food is yummy. (The quiche (brunch menu on Sat Sun) was probably the best I have ever had!) They have many options for seating including a nice outdoor area (they do have smoking in the way back but most of... More
