Beyond Buger and beyond... - Edit

The Cup Café now serves Beyond Burgers! It is vegetarian the way it is presented on the menu but a quick swap of the bread (sourdough for the brioche bun) and it is vegan. Comes with choice of side - French fries are hand cut from fresh potatoes EVERY. DAMN. DAY. or you can order it with the house soup - Tortilla Soup - which is vegan if you ask for no cheese. Another awesome vegan option is the Lettuce Wraps - chickpea fritters with pickled veggies and harrisa sauce topped with toasted cashews in butter lettuce wraps - spicy, sweet, crispy, delicious! No need to modify - they are vegan as prepared. Other great vegan options are the tofu scramble, sonoran sopes (with vegan sour cream), and the barrio bread (swap the butter and pesto for extra rosemary infused olive oil).

Pros: Lots of great options, Amazing service, Cozy ambiance

Cons: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

We love Cup Cafe - Edit

The food here is creative, delicious and healthy. The staff is super nice!
The bartender in the little bar in the hotel makes Jammu! Jammu is non alcoholic and made from ginger, turmeric and honey, yum! It's not on the menu yet but ask about it. Every veggie dish we have had here has been outstanding! Bring non veg friends here.
I would definitely give this 5 stars as their Vegetarian food is better then most all veg place I've eaten. Unfortunately Happy Cow disallows a 5 star rating.

Pros: Creative food, Great ambiance , Friendly service

Cons: Could have more vegan options

Best breakfast in town! - Edit

In a town where any breakfast, but especially vegan, is near impossible to find before 9am, Cup Cafe is a real gem and open at 7am. Located in the historic Hotel Congress downtown, the atmosphere is as great as the food. There is a single vegan option for breakfast (Tofu Scramble, $9.5), but its amazing and the best I've had in Tucson. They make their own vegan sausage in house and the very knowledgeable staff knows which side dishes and bread are or can be vegan. They also have soy milk for your coffee.

There are additional options for lunch, dinner, and even on the cheap bar menu, but I've only had the Queer Steer ($13 for dinner), which is also delicious. In the midst of all the new pretentious and meat-heavy, farm-to-table restaurants downtown, it's great to have delicious options at the coolest old bar/hotel/restaurant in Tucson.

Pros: delicious, atmosphere, outdoor seating is dog-friendly!

Cons: parking - its downtown, a little pricey
