Reservations are highly recommended for dinner due to limited indoor seating and high demand for patio seating. For breakfast and lunch, we have returned to our previous model of first-come, first-serve, no reservations.

The Cup Cafe is an established downtown Tucson tradition with a reputation for delicious, creative and eclectic fare, alive with flavor. A full-service, historic modern bistro, The Cup Cafe appeals to locals and visitors alike.

Enjoy the variety of The Cup’s all-day menu and the fresh, delectable, and ever-changing daily features. Selections include build-your-own omelets, unique salads, great appetizers, full-course entrees, classic sandwiches, as well as vegan and vegetarian options.

The Cup also proudly features homemade desserts, baked in-house, as well as a comfortable and expansive outdoor patio, full-service bar, unique signature cocktails, and intriguing wine selections.

Thank you!

Restaurant is very eclectic...kinda a cross between an old diner and a casual "come as you are" cafe. However, once the show starts all assumption is off. Very friendly and knowledgable, with no rush at all. Cocktails are fine, but a small pour and the wine list is minimal at best, but it doesn't matter. The foods center stage and should be. The Ciopino was devine, and the Carbonara was full of guanciale....also excellent. Once you get over the initial impression, you will fully enjoy the experience.

Wait staff at fort very attentive, then we were forgot about for long periods of time. Drink glass were not refilled in a timely matter. Drinks refilled and no ice offered. When new courses arrived the old dishes were not removed making for a crowded eating environment. I will take a pause thinking about our next experience at the Cup

She had tofu that was overcooked and burnt. I ordered the crab eggs Benedict. The crab was scarce in the crab section of some kind of crab salad. The main problem I had with all the food served was it was cold. Accompanying the eggs Benedict was just some fried potatoes, lukewarm. Also my friend is a vegetarian which I indicated at booking. She ordered a tamale pie. The menu didn't say there was meat in it and it had meat in it! And our 3 course meal was just a salad or soup, A main course, and a mousse in a cup. The price for that was $55 per person? All the food and the soup required salt and pepper to be edible. I just felt like we were treated as an afterthought and our food had been sitting around for a while and then hastily taken to us with no care by the chef to give us fresh food instead. The price for what we received was ridiculous. I feel ripped off. Thanks for ruining mothers day! Never ever will I go back. Also the hostess was rude to me for arriving too early. She didn't have to be like that. With the drinks and an additional piece of cake, I paid over $300 for a bad experience.

Highly recommend the Seafood Cioppino!! And French Fries! Sadly, no room for dessert, even though they had a gluten-free, vegan, key lime cheesecake!! The drinks were MARVELOUS!!! I love this place and need to get back again soon! Highly recommend!

The brussel sprouts are fab, as are the burgers and fries. Skip the salads, meh. $12 for a bagged caesar w/ 5 croutons? no thanks! A wonderful spot for people watching and listening to music. Bennu!
