This was our first visit to the Cup Café and we'll definitely return. The vintage hotel ambiance is lively and funky. Our dinners were both very good as was the service. There were a number of other menu items that looked interesting. Great place to meet friends or bring guests!

Great food & service. Not fancy but worth the experience if you are in downtown Tucson. We had pretzel encrusted pork and split it and a salad. Excellent!

Historical hotel with a cool restaurant. Very retro with a lobby area decorated with quite a few telephone type relics. Food was great! Service was great! Definitely worth stopping in.

Food was decent but the hotel is more about ambience:maybe the coolest place in downtown Tucson-yeah not that big of a challenge,but really the place has a vibe and genuine-ness that doesn't come that easily here.

Nice restaurant in a historic hotel. We noticed the outdoor patio area but it was too cold so had dinner inside. Food and service was good. Next time we are in Tucson we will definitely stop by again and sit on the patio.

The hostesses this morning, the two ladies were absolutely amazing. I wanted to eat breakfast in a hurry, so I could catch my flight and they watched out for the bar for us. They had great customer service and was very friendly! Thank you again!
