“excellent!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Excellent food and the pennies on the floor I wish it opened earlier because I come from New Mexico and the time change in the summer throws me off! But don't get me wrong the food is great I am just an early bird.

We have to give our night cleaners a chance to keep our hotel tidy, but we hope the early-birds can forgive us for only opening at 7AM. Glad you otherwise enjoyed your stay at the Hotel and we'll see you again the next time you're in Tucson.

“Tucson institution”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

I love breakfast. This place is a treasure. Housemade corned beef, potatoes and poached eggs that was melt in your mouth wonderful. Plus super blueberry pancakes. We ended up going twice during our visit, it was so good. The DH loves pie. The lemon meringue was also made in house and really very good. Even the crust was made there which is very impressive these days. Only complaint was the coffee which seemed weak to me but improved the next day. Tucson is so lucky to have a place like this. The hotel is really worth seeing. Art Deco meets Arizona southwest. I'm sure it hops during the school year.

Busy and fairly cramped, but really good food and superb service. Locals eat here so it must be consistent.

I like to think of our place as a favorite of locals who have friends visiting from out of town.

“Good food in nostalgia hotel”
Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

Well,

Quite the beer selection. The menu was specific so not to be overwhelmed with choices. I have come here twice. The staff is always friendly and the desserts are made fresh daily. The atmosphere is cosy. Nothing to oooo la la la about though.

“Possibly the best Brunch EVER”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

The English hit Cup Cafe for a jet lag recovery Brunch on the first day of a 2 week road trip today. Our first time in Tucson, so had no idea what you expect. The choice could not have been better. The ambience is fabulous, the service excellent and the food to die for. Our only regret is not staying In the hotel.

Your food takes a little time to arrive, but if you want quality you sometimes need to wait. Besides who wants to rush on their first day. A great start to the holiday

We know that the people who eat here come from all over the world, so we love to hearing that when someone travels thousands of miles and finds us they are satisfied.
