“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

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.

“Tasty food, fun location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

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.

“A star in downtown Tucson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

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.

“Delightful Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

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.
