Mercado San Agustin
The Mercado is a public marketplace just outside of downtown Tucson. This great little gathering area features a number of restaurants, authentic Mexican bakeries, a wonderful coffee shop, and a few local shops. Seis Kitchen serves up the most delicious breakfast tacos and burritos you will find anywhere in the city. Presta Coffee Roasters is a wonderful local coffee shop. La Estrella is a really popular bakery which serves up the best authentic Mexican pastries in town. Agustin Kitchen is a classy French restaurant which uses locally sourced ingredients for all their dishes.
Mercado in general is just a great place to enjoy a leisurely brunch or meet up with friends or exercise groups. The vibe is casual and relaxing with a beautiful shared old-world style courtyard amongst the businesses. It’s heavily treed so perfect for the hot summer season. Many cyclists and hikers stop for a nice hearty breakfast at Mercado before hitting nearby trails like Tumanoc Hill. It’s definitely the best place in the city for coffee and brunch in a beautiful atmosphere. On going events include farmer’s markets and special antique markets.
