Had breakfast for lunch while waiting for my truck to be serviced across the street. Food was very good, service was friendly and exceptional. Typical diner atmosphere but clean and well maintained. I wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend to others.

I gave this place an excellent - which I rarely give out just because of the whole experience. The service was great. There were a lot of servers running around but I think it is because it gives each of them time to talk to their tables. Ours was very friendly and nice. The food was good - was it... More

Not fancy, more like a time capsule for those who remember the 50"s and 60's diners. Quick, polite, great service. Meals made from scratch give you a chance to chat up your companion(s) over some fresh brewed coffee. Get there early --- this is a favorite with locals and a line into the street is not uncommon, but worth the... More

I've been looking for a good breakfast place in Tucson and have finally found one. I had eggs and chorizo. They were delicious. I took about 3/4 of the chorizo home. I love good bread and the sour dough was very good. My only complaint was that it didn't have enough butter on it. I ordered a cinnamon roll to... More

We were meeting with friends for a day in Tucson and decided to gather at the Bread and Butter for brunch to start our day. This is a fun little diner, plain and simple with a good menu and good solid service. The place is clean, the food good and the prices reasonable. What more could you ask for?

We've had meals here several times when traveling to or through Tucson. The food is good diner type food, friendly service and reasonable prices all with that homey feel. It's in a fairly rundown strip mall but don't let that deter you. We've never been disappointed.

Been to both their restaurants in Tucson. We loved both of them. Had breakfast at one and lunch at the other. We will definitely go for future meals.

We had breakfast while in town for the Gem Show and it was quite a find. Service was very friendly and many of the staff have been there for a long time. We will be back to try lunch some time during our next visit to Tucson.

Thank Dino S
