This classic Tucson hotel/restaurant (where John Dillinger was arrested) is centrally located, has great food, offers prompt service ... and you can bring your dog if you eat on the patio. We stopped here after the Meet Me at Maynards Monday night walk.

I had the cast iron skillet breakfast and it was delicious. I did not want the ham, so the server gave me several options to replace it. I chose the avocado and it was placed on top cut into a very pleasing fan shape. The...More

We had brunch here and really enjoyed it. I have never had a bad meal here, and have eaten here many times in my life. I am happy to see them continually expanding their menu. It's a foodie experience not to be missed.More

I'm reluctant to give Cup Cafe and excellent review because I don't want it to get even more busy than it is. This is my favorite Tucson place for brunch, lunch, dinner and, especially, breakfast. I'm lucky to live nearby.

The Cup Cafe is in an historical hotel in the middle of downtown Tucson. On-street parking may be problematic, but there's an underground lot just across the street that's safe and secure. And while the hotel is spectacular, the restaurant is even better. Large breakfasts,...More
