Last chance café before heading north towards Old Tucson Studios and Arizona - Sonoran Desert Museum. I thought that we would be gnawing on the table legs as we waited and waited and waited for our lunch to be served.

We ate here after staying at the Cat Mountain Lodge. The mesquite pecan pancake was excellent as was the BLT and french fries. We loved the atmosphere and enjoyed the food. Excellent place to eat if you're in the area.

We had a brunch and then a few days later had a late lunch here. Both times, the food was very good - not amazing, but very good. My husband claimed that the bacon was exceptional. The service was also great.

Went at lunch, was a full house. Grilled chicken salad was not good. Grilled chicken was not only not grilled it was barely cooked. Some strips of chicken were cold. Wife had avacado tacos.

Decent lunch spot but plan on slow service. There are small shops in the plaza to look at before or after lunch.

This café serves breakfast and lunch the whole time they're open, which is only until 2 PM. They were very busy when we went and we had to wait for a table. It seems they didn't have enough servers because the service was quite slow but very friendly. When our food arrived it was very good. Two people had the... More

Possibly the best chilaquiles I've had in Arizona. Quick service, friendly people, excellent food. A great end to hiking or biking in Tucson Mtn Park. The brownies are pretty on-point too.
