For over eighteen years, Café a la C’art has been serving its classic yet quirky fare from the historic Stevens-Duffield House, tucked behind the Tucson Museum of Art. Known for brunch and lunch, Cafe a la C’art added dinner four years ago, which it serves Wednesday through Sunday.

Café a La C’art’s sandwiches get rave reviews, and top picks include The Rothschild—wine-braised beef brisket, roasted red pepper, chipotle aioli and melted pepper jack on a kaiser roll, and the Achiote—slow-roasted pulled pork, avocado, melted pepper jack, and crispy onions on focaccia.

For lunch, they also offer burgers, salads, and soup. The dinner menu builds upon the lunch offerings, and includes appetizers (the prosciutto-parmesan brussels sprouts and the chef’s charcuterie-and-cheese board are good bets), entrées and tacos. Breakfast and brunch options include a Cobb Frittata (think Cobb salad in baked eggs), banana cream french toast, chai spiced steel cut oatmeal, and green eggs and ham.

Save room for the baked goods and desserts, which café patrons have called “out of this world,” “fantastic,” and “oh so delightful.” The cherry-vanilla scones—which are often, but not always, available—are a customer favorite. Dessert options also vary, depending on what’s in the pastry case, but keep an eye out for the chocolate bomb and the chocolate raspberry cake.

This quirky café also has a lot to offer when it comes to beverages. Its coffee menu includes espresso, lattes, and hot chocolate. The bar offers an extensive selection of beer, wine, martinis, and cocktails—including the Sonoran Monsoon, which is made with rum, ginger beer, lime, and a vanilla-sugar rim. Happy Hour is served Wednesday through Saturday from 4 to 6 pm, and includes a special menu of $5 appetizers.

Café a La C’art’s charming atmosphere is the icing on the (freshly baked and mouth-watering) cake. You can eat in the chic, peach-hued dining room or sit out on the patio, which is draped with vines and festooned with party lights. It’s the perfect choice after a trip to the art museum, for a lunch with friends, or for a romantic night out.
