“Fun breakfast!”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

A great place to see everyone from the NE (who are not at Le Buzz), to people watch and to eat a good, hearty (if not always heathy) breakfast. Have even ridden our horses over, tied them to the fence, and the owners and staff even brought water for the horses!

“REAL TUCSON DOWN HOME PLACE FOR BREAKFAST”
Reviewed December 3, 2011

If you are from the northeast and wishing for your diner, here's a great alternative. It is in
a strip shopping center but does have an outdoor space if you like that (too cool on our visit for breakfast).

Packed in there with mostly alot of older guys, prob retired Air Force or native Tucsonans.

Great, old-fashioned kind of waitresses with lots of enthusiasm and really seemingly interested in your happiness.

I ordered eggs with corned beef hash, and even without asking the hash was browned on top which is as it should be served.

The only thing negative is the long wait to get our food but it was very crowded.

Lots of pics on the walls of local soldiers serving abroad, Elvis, Marilyn, James Dean, etc.

“Neighborhood breakfast hangout”
Reviewed July 22, 2011

When everything in this strip mall went belly up, Viv's keeps overflowing with repeat business from loyal customers. No frills, greasy perhaps, but good food and lots of it. Ride your horse and tie up while you eat breakfast. They will water and pamper your horse while they feed you!
