Regrettably, I found out about this little hidden gem as I was leaving Tucson. They have great pasteries. It is just outside of the hustle and bustle of the city. It is a nice place to break away and enjoy yourelf.

Sometimes when you walk into a place you immediately feel warm about it...a friendly vibe...and even if you're only having a coffee you know it'll be a pleasant experience. We went there for lunch...I had the burger...and it was excellent. The place was quite empty for a Saturday but that made little difference. We'd readily go back just for a... More

One of our favorite Tucson dessert places. Like the old tucson charm of cafe ala Carte- especially the outside patio dining area. The Chocolate Bomb- & The Key Lime Cheese cake are our Favorites . .......

Awesome breakfast and brunch spot! They make great coffee drinks, the egg dishes are great, particularly the portabello omelet, and the sides are really good. I recommend the roasted potatoes and the fruit. Hard to go wrong here!

After visiting the Tucson Art Museum, we had lunch at the Cafe. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace under the vine canopy. I had the Bistro salad, which was delicious - mixed greens, walnuts, cranberries, grapes, goat cheese with a raspberry vinaigrette. The menu had some heartier fare that we plan to enjoy at a later date and the desserts... More

Ate in the patio with helpful services and refreshing meal. We had the Chicken Almond Salad Sandwich which we split. Plenty for two with a light appetite.

Probably one of THE most relaxing places to dine. Lots of shady tables surrounded by lots of plants, a fountain, mosaic walls and fun birds that would like you to share your meal. Best mocha coffee and cappuccino we have ever had. My scrambled eggs and homemade turkey sausage were delicious and my husband enjoyed the Florentine Frittata very much.... More

Hidden away on the campus of the Tucson Museum of Art, is this exceptional little café...a perfect place to Brunch before visiting the Museum. We went this past Sunday, when the Museum was open to the public for free (every month on the second Sunday). Wow! The food was delicious. We had the Market Skillet - eggs on a bed... More

We had one of the finest breakfast meals I have ever experienced and the privacy was second to none. I would highly recommend Café A La C'art as the place to go. It was right downtown, not easy to find for us visitors but well worth the search.
