The fried chicken salad was tough and not cooked well. The other salad was OK but not great. It may be the times, but not impressed

Some friends and I were practicing our social distancing and came here to order take out. We parked out front and called the number published on the door. It was immediately answered by a very pleasant man who made suggestions, asked questions, and took our...order. He said these food would be ready in ten minutes. Before the ten minutes were up, I received a text message that our food was ready and waiting for us on a table outside. And there it was, freshly made, steaming hot and absolutley delicious! I highly recommend Eclectic Cafe for takeout during this time and can't wait to come here in person. I commend the owner and staff for their service and attitude during this trying time.More

This place had an old-school diner feel, which these days is actually pretty unique. We went for lunch and it was great. As far as diners go, they do a great job of catering to dietary restrictions. I was able to get a great gluten-free...meal and dessert. Our server was awesome; very personable. As soon as everything re-opens, we plan to come back for breakfast.More

We ate here twice during our month in Tucson, and liked it both times. The food is good and fresh, the wait staff OK but rushed. It's a very popular spot, so some waiting is possible. The biggest downside is how crowded and noisy it...is, but the food makes up for it.More

A friendly clean café. Staff seems to know everybody which shows repeat customers. If You’re from out of town this is it please please to get advice and directions to practically anywhere.

This restaurant is in a strip mall but they had a very nice patio with shades pulled down so it was a pleasant place to have lunch. The traffic noise was a bit loud. They allowed our dog to sit near our table and they...brought him a dish filled with water. All of the employees were super friendly as was our server. He was very attentive and friendly. The food was delicious and fresh. Our salads were tasty and crisp. My turkey melt was great and my husband loved his sauteed veggies with parmesan cheese too. Their house merlot wasn't bad either. The prices were more than reasonable.More

Went there for dinner. No reservations so you may have to wait. Busy but staff were attentive and helpful. Food was more than I could eat. Ok quality and flavour. Reasonable value for money.

Plenty of vegetarian choices, including many Mexican/Southwest dishes. Also had great gaspacho, sangria, and bread pudding. Servings are ENOURMOUS!

Recently three of us went to the Eclectic Cafe for lunch. This was not our first visit and hopefully we'll go there again when in the area. The Cafe is casual and has a very eclectic menu--lots of different options. We each enjoyed our lunch...very much. My husband had chicken salad and two of us had very good salads. The cafe gets quite busy during meal times but take a chance and go. I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as we did.More
