Breakfast Spot
$$
“High-ceiling, wood-beamed eatery for housemade pastries & elevated breakfast dishes & sandwiches. Tucson's to-die-for breakfast spot takes no reservations, so you'll have to join Yelp's waitlist to get in line. Indulgences range from duck confit to croissant sammies and French toast (stuffed with nutella, or with green chilies), plus more health-oriented options like the quinoa bowl and chickpea scramble. Mimosas, Bloody Mary's and champagne turn breakfast into brunch. Hours of Operation: Monday - Sunday: 7am - 3pm”

“*The Cup has good food & is open breakfast, lunch & dinner. However, I am mostly recommending for the historic ambience - and since you need to visit the hotel anyway at some point - you might as well stop here :). I love the interior, but the patio can also be lovley. Sunday brunch gets insanely crowded - I think because they have a bloody mary bar.”
