“Delicious, Ample and Pleasant Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

I have been going to Mosaic Cafe since it was tucked into a strip mall. The food was fantastic and authentic then, and has improved now that it is situated in a lovely stand-alone building full of vibrant colors with a fantastic view of Tucson. The dishes are cooked in the traditional Sonoran Mexican style and the portions are large. Fresh tortillas are made on site, fun for kids to watch! There is a small bar to wait and have a drink. The tables are mosaic tiles, reflecting the name and adding to the vibrancy of the ambiance. The restaurant can be bustling during high-traffic times, but can also be more relaxed and casual during off days/hours. I recommend going to Teresa's Mosaic Cafe with people visiting Tucson, especially if you are already on the West Side of Tucson visiting the Desert Museum of Saguaro National Park West!

“Good service, delicious food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

We were very pleased with the service and even more pleased with the food. I ordered Flan for dessert and it wasn't very good. It tasted like it had sat in the refrigerator for a few weeks. The decor is really interesting and it's fun to watch the Tortillas being made.

“Favorite breakfast in the world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Love the Divorced Eggs! The staff and owners take great pride in their work. The tortillas are some of the best in town. It is the first place we go when we arrive in Tucson.

“Good food and nice scenery...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

The restaurant has alot of charm with the tables who are done by mosaic artists and the windows look out at part of the city. The mexican food is wonderful and you cannot top the handmade tortillas that are made on site. Enjoy!
