Best breakfast in years. More than I could eat and wanted to eat all all of it. Good coffee. Staff was Avery friendly. Bloody Mary bar was fantastic. Order one made to your specifications. Clientele was very interesting. Fun just looking around at the decorations....More

The Cup Cafe is in an historical hotel in the middle of downtown Tucson. On-street parking may be problematic, but there's an underground lot just across the street that's safe and secure. And while the hotel is spectacular, the restaurant is even better. Large breakfasts,...More

Took our daughter there while visiting for parents weekend at U of A. Their breakfasts are quite unique. The baked eggs in a skillet were amazing!

Mild jazz playing in the background and the soft lighting make this a lovely venue for dining. Service wasn't the best. Food was okay. There are several options so maybe we needed to try something else.More

Late lunch/early dinner and decided to do multiple appetizers. Way over ordered because the portions were so generous but we did our best. They never disappoint!

I would not recommend this place at all. Some locals like to go because it is so familiar to them but it is nothing special. The waitstaff is just inexperienced kids and the food is blah. I have had better breakfasts at many other places...More
