My husband and I always like to reward ourselves after a hike on the Phone Line Trail in Sabino Canyon with a late breakfast at Eclectic Cafe. Oh, the huevos rancheros! The breakfast burros! And the breakfast enchiladas! So mouth watering and so much food,...More

The Eclectic Cafe has a great and varied lunch menu. Salads are crisp. Sandwiches are tasty and Mexican food is yummy. The wait staff is nice and professional. It is a popular place so I recommend going a little early on peak days like Fridays.
