Cafe A La C'art is a jewel of a cafe in Tucson. The food is excellent and the environment is cozy and beautiful. I've been coming here for years and the consistancy of the food is amazing. The menu consists of really well prepared dishes with top notch ingedients. I have been to catered
affairs and Cafe A la C'art is one of the best in the city. It's a restaurant must when you go to the Tucson Museum of Art. While you're there, you might like to sit in the Mosaic garden. It's a very European style dinning experience.

We really think all the items we have had here over the years, including the especially tantalizing desserts. We enjoy eating outside, weather permitting, but the inside rooms are cozy and comfortable, too.

This remains one of our favorite restaurants in Tucson. The food is exceptional and the desserts are the most delightful. They boast that they have one of the only French pastry chefs in the entire southwest and the desserts never disappoint. The owners, Mark and Judy, are personable and very involved in making the visit enjoyable. They constantly strive to make a visit a wonderful experience. They have expanded the restaurant into a variety of smaller rooms that are so warm and cozy that you can't wait to return.

If you spend a day in Tucson this ought to be one of your meal stops. We visited on a Sunday and sat outside. Our lunches were delicious and we didn't see a meal go by us that didn't make our mouths water. Especially attentive service was frosting on a wonderful cake.

A perfect spot for lunch if you're in the area.....we were visiting Tucson and went to the Museum's Spring Art Fair this past weekend. We had reservations for lunch at the cafe and arrived on time, seated quickly and placed our order at the counter.....it took a little while to have our food brought to the table, but we were in no hurry and realized the cafe was very busy. I had a delicious salad and my husband had the pulled pork sandwich which he also enjoyed. We shared a lemon tart, and all the other desserts looked yummy. The ambiance is lovely, both inside and out; we opted for an indoor room as it was quite warm ourdoors and there were no tables available that were shaded......all in all, we had a great afternoon and enjoyed our meal as well as the art fair. We highly recommend this cafe and would definitely return when visiting Tucson again.
