I've been going to Canyon Cafe's Sunday brunch every so often for over a year now. We always ask for Dannelle as our server! She takes great care of us, as do the rest of the staff, and we're always treated to amazing food in the beautiful Sonoran desert. If you like a wide variety of food, bottomless mimosas, and great service, then this is definitely the place for you :)

Found the biggest gray hair in my oyster. Everyone didn't finish eating. What a waste of $42.00 times 6

We had a great view. This was my first brunch at this site. The extras that were included were impressive such as bloody marys and beer.

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, our server Melonie and her assistant Denis were very accommodating. Fantastic variety of foods to choose from. Though we were unable to try many things on offer at the buffet (because we were so full), everything we did have was very tasty and the bottomless mimosas were also a really nice touch.
We will definitely be back.

Six of us went for the Buffet. It has the best variety of seafood, meats, desserts, etc. and great Mimosas. Service is excellent, our dishes are picked up once they are empty so we may get more food.. We have gone numerous times over the years and the quality of the Canyon Cafe has never changed, always fantastic. Danelle our server always has a smile and is very efficient. I ask for her when making reservations. You never feel rushed when sitting and enjoying the conversation of the people you are with. It is a great place, we will return again soon.

Have been to brunch a few times. Each time it seems to decrease in quality. Breakfast food was cold. Waffles were cold, stale and that was usually my kid's favorite part. Dessert cookies stale. Granola berry bake was also stale and not edible. the Mac and Cheese is normally the best but this time it was left out sitting too long and cold, clumpy. I tried to tell someone about the waffles and cookies but they just looked at me. Breakfast food not rotated and was cold. BBQ stuff was good. I hope it gets better. Mothers day was awesome and fathers day was great. This time, not so much, especially for such a heafty price tag.

We've done the Champagne brunch with our bunch several times. You can't beat the variety of food.......omelets on demand, eggs Benedict, Sushi, oysters, salmon on the grill, roast beef, grilled veggies and of course, Mac and cheese. Don't miss this if you are in Tucson on a Sunday. 11:00 till you quit. Oh yeah, live music too and the servers are great.

Requested special occasion recognition (25 yr anniversary) which was NOT recognized. Brunch selections have been reduced. Service was spotty at best. At $42 per person, we expected at least, our anniversary cookie or cup cake w/sparkler. Swimming pool users should be required to use basic pool cover up attire when entering/using the food service and eating areas.

Lowes Canyon Cafe is one our favorites for a relaxing sunday brunch . Its always busy and reservations are recommended all year. Never had a bad day at their sunday brunch. Its a very happy crowd and great choices of food for your enjoyment and be sure to save room for Desserts..

Very disappointing all the way around. Was really looking forward to brunch and booked a table for 7 to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. When I confirmed my reservation I was told that the birthday would be recognized. We arrived and were seated a table for 6, not 7. We had to find an extra chair on our own and waited 10 minutes for service and to get an extra place setting. I asked for coffee but my husband had to ask again 20 minutes later to remind the server to bring coffee. Although all of the adults at the table drank coffee we never got refills. We had to ask almost every time to get refills on our mimosas. The food selection was varied but most of the food was marginal at best. The service was terrible. We had to stack used dishes on our table as a hint to the servers to clear the table. Although we saw other servers recognizing birthdays at other tables, my husband's birthday was never acknowledged. The biggest insult was that a 20% gratuity, which in my opinion should be reserved for service that is well above average, was automatically added to our check with no option to adjust appropriately. Ridiculous. Do yourself a favor a pay the extra $10/person for Hacienda del Sol. I will never return.
