A diamond in the rough
Group of 5 visiting from Oregon, found on Urbanspoon and yelp. Love that Tryst sources foods locally where available. Server, Rachael, was knowledgable and friendly. We felt bad that she had to make so many more stops with coffee at our table than any of her others, we live on the stuff up here in the Pac NW.
The Food: I had the Benedict and while not traditional that is a plus in this case and did not detract.The capicola added a little heat to balance the richness. Paired perfectly with the Cucumber infused bloody mary. Companions had the Pecan crusted french toast and tryst omelet. Both had glowing reviews, the texture of the brioche was decadent and best omelet ever were two of the remarks. Out of room. Go to Tryst, make reservation!

I have loved Tryst since it
I have loved Tryst since it first opened. Their food is reliably good, with interesting selections, especially for lunch.

I've been coming to Tryst for about 2 years now and have always had an enjoyable dining experience. The food is local and organic and their menu is diverse and creative.
We usually frequent Tryst Cafe for both brunch and dinner. Brunch is usually busy and you can expect a small wait, especially on the weekends.
I've had almost everything on their breakfast menu and the repeat offenders include eggs and chorizo and the Hawaiian breakfast. My wife is a big fan of the waffles, both regular and the chocolate bacon selection. Brunch and dinner usually comes out to $30-$40 for two, depending if we ordered any cocktails with our meals.
Tryst Cafe is a restaurant that we will continue to frequent in northern Phoenix.

Had an early lunch there. Great GF options. The Bloody Mary was good but the Mojito was aweful.
I had the Roast Beast which was great. Hummus app was also wonderful.

Welcoming staff in a thoughtfully designed space combine nicely for dinner (2 people). Service was pleasant and responsive as we enjoyed a bottle of red wine, mixed green salads and perfectly-seasoned Bistro Steaks served with grilled asparagus and potatoes.

Had heard about this restaurant and their organic ingredients, and was interested in trying it out. It met my expectations and more! The food was delicious and I had difficulty deciding what I wanted to order because I wanted everything! Can't wait to go back and try more. I had the grilled chicken and goat cheese salad and beer battered green beans they were all really good. I also loved that the proportions were not "American" size, but rather normal. Will be dining here again very soon!

The steak dinner was as good
The steak dinner was as good as Ruth Chris and other famous steakhouses. The service was excellent. We enjoy our dining experience. What a pleasant surprise!

Will be back
It was nice to eat somewhere with so many gluten-free items. The menu was very clear. Everyone enjoyed the food (GF and other). The service was friendly and helpful.

First time there
I will definitely return!! My son and I had the BBQ burgers with bacon and sweet potato tots and they were delicious. I ordered my burger med-well, and I received a med-well burger. The bacon was crisp (the way I like it), and the tots were hot and crispy. In addition to this, our server was wonderful--helpful, attentive and courteous.

Great little place tucked away in the outdoor mall. Great service, great wait staff and wonderful mindful choices to choose from- it felt like food with a purpose.

Food was excellent, but a little slow in coming out. It probably was because we were a party of 8 and all of our meals needed to be brought out together. The dishes were very presentable and everyone at the table enjoyed their food. The prices were reasonable and our waiter was very friendly and accommodating.

Tryst is a Healthy Delicious Find!
Who says healthy food is boring? It is not at Tryst Cafe. I have been there twice and had two different salads that were both excellent. Greens are fresh, and toppings are perfectly seasoned. I wish I lived around the block but will drive the distance to visit again!

My family and I have been coming to Tryst since it opened. We love the food! It is fresh and always good. Service can be sketchy at times, but Sunday mornings are typically good and we always love to have Charlene wait on us. I wish they would have had their Friday Night Fish Fry back this last summer. It was a great value and good meal.
We will continue to visit Tryst on a regular basis.

Desert Ridge Gem
Great to see a local restaurant do so well. The food is very well prepared, tasty and well presented.

Great Menu, Healthy Options
Love the selection of organic and gluten free items. I took my parents here for lunch and we all loved our food. My salad was delicious, and my dad, who doesn't care about organic gluten free options, thoroughly enjoyed his sandwich. The service was excellent...can't wait to come back!

So glad I stumbled upon this place.
I was so happy to discover a restaurant close to home that uses organic, all-natural ingredients and also has many gluten-free options. The menu has so many delicious items to choose from, pretty much anything anyone could want. The service is excellent. They really aim to please. We tried it for the first time Friday night and went back Sunday night too. They serve food all day so we are looking forward to trying breakfast there soon as well. I would highly recommend this place.

Yummy Organic and Gluten Free
Love that half of the menu at the Tryst Cafe can be made gluten free. They also use organic produce, and the food is absolutely delicious. Definitely a place I will be returning to again and again.
