The penny floor consists of 17,700 pennies. All hand placed by the Hotel Congress staff. Each one of them is proud to be part of such a impactful Tucson landmark. You always want to save room for our award winning deserts. Our rotating selection gets...More

The menu is very creative and much more sophisticated than you would expect. The Cup is located in the historic Hotel Congress. Inside it looks like a 1960's coffee shop. Don't let that fool you. There is also a very nice outside seating area. More...More

We ate here two times this past week. I had a clam appetizer "special" and tortilla soup, first time and a salmon special the second night. More than enough. The Bride had fish tacos and liked them. Outside music on Friday was great!
