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

Ok, so maybe I shouldn't set the expectation level so high but really, truly this little cafe is an absolute gem. I opted for the Braveheart following other TA reviews and it was fantastic. Not a typical choice for me (sounded heavy for breakfast) but...More

Dear Alice, Braveheart!!!! A staff and chef favorite! The coffee you enjoyed is our NEW LOCAL roast from HERMOSA COFFEE ROASTERS! We sell it by the pound as well. Please come back soon, we'll keep the skillet hot awaiting the preparation of your next Braveheart.

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

I had read that the Cup Café was one of the best breakfast in Tucson. The restaurant is small and cramped as they've crammed as many tables as possible into the small area. My first cup of coffee was cold. Refills were better. The hash...More

I normally go for breakfast, and I highly recommend the baked eggs. We even went there for Thanksgiving, which was outstanding as well. One of the best places in town, and interesting local history as well.
