The cup has consistently been a great choice for breakfast or lunch. Hotel is like going back to the 30s and 40s. Rooms are original.

First time there. The wait was nearly an hour. We found a seat at the bar instead. The food, service and people were amazing!

Perfect place for a brunch or other meal. Relaxed environment. Wide-ranging menu. We had a quiche and juevos rancheros, with white wine.

Five of us, three generations, ate here recently. Even though the place was hopping, our server was attentive and the food arrived quicker than expected. I had the winter salad which consisted mainly of beets, watermelon and feta. Delicious! Our appetizers of bacon wrapped dates...More

The food, coffee, and deserts are delicious here. Very small place and maybe a little difficult to find for out of towners. Worth the trip if visiting in Tucson. Right in downtown...very close to University of Arizona and Fourth Avenue. Parking is a challenge...but don't...More
