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

Just ate here. Excellent food and service. I tried the bar special street tacos. Three different special tacos $3 each. Followed by a pie of key lime pie. Really good deal and more than worth it..

Thanks for the wonderful feedback. The tacos here are a wonderful little gnosh. Fried pork belly are my favorite. The key lime pie here is some of the best I've ever had. Hope to see you back real soon.
