Have been here 3 times and food was excellent. Love the Cubano sandwich and Sun Devil fries - the crispy chicken sandwich is also very good. Salads and pizza look amazing and will try these on future visits. The outdoor patio is large and in the cooler weather we are currently experiencing, they have a huge fireplace as well as fire pit. I highly recommend this place.

My first time here and was impressed with the atmosphere and the food! A very chill (relaxed) place with a friendly bartender. I think I found my new hangout. ?

I have always loved this cafe. Great atmosphere and food. Stopped by today with Google saying they were still open but had this sign on the door. (Difficult to read because of refection) "It is with the heaviest of hearts that we make the following announcement. Effective today January 17th, Tempe Public Market Cafe will be closed." Truly sad. It was a great place.

Cool lil place!! Great atmosphere and delicious food. Prices are okay, happy hour time is best to go. We ate there, but saw it had some other pieces we didn't experience. The service was not that great. Good people, just not that attentive. Took about 15 minutes before someone came to our table. Maybe saw her 4 times in our time there. The people behind us were complaining about the same as well as missing food(we had ours!) We ordered a coffee before we left and took about 5minutes until they get back and said they were out of stock on the drink we ordered, so we cancelled it.

Speed up the service, and when a burger is ordered well done, don't serve it rare. When you get a complaint, do something to make up for it. This joint isn't worth the high prices for slow svc. and mediocre food.

Most delicious cauliflower ever!!!!! The meatloaf was excellent too. With regret, the service was not good. We had to grab other servers for nearly every request and it was seemingly slow for the number of patrons. We finished our appetizer before we were ever served our adult beverages. Great to go containers and bag for the extra meal to go!!

This place is Fantastic not sure why it only has 3 1/2 stars. Food was great as bad Mickey our server was excellent. The only area for improvement was turning down the music volume on the patio as it interfered with table conversation.

Orders are taken at the table in the evening. It gets a little confusing. The staff is very friendly and knows the menu well. They have a great patio with heaters and numerous indoor tables. It is a great place to chill and have dinner. They do have a few items on the kids menu. The pizza is enormous for a kid size. Happy hour has great pricing. Ranch and Chicken pizzas are only $10. They do a great pizza crust. Fired in a hot oven. I've had the BBQ chicken pizza the last two visits. Both great. Today was a bit spicer. Yet great. My wife had the vegetarian pizza. The waitress noted she orders with cheese. My wife had a side of vinaigrette. Just to help tie all the vegetables and salad together. A great neighborhood place!

Stopped in around 530 with a friend! Really cute set up inside and outside. We ordered happy hour veggie pizza, cauliflower wings, and happy hour pretzel bites! The veggie pizza was very vegetable tasting lol. The cauliflower wings were deeelish! Must try! Pretzel bites were good too, mustard was a tad too spicy for us, but my friend loved the cheese sauce. Definitely would go again and try more things on the menu. Lots of vegan and vegetarian options as well.

One of our favorite happy hour spots! The patio is great and now that they do table service it's even better. Food and atmosphere #1. Service... so so Seems to be a revolving door of new servers and everyone is in a constant state of confusion.

This place was really great! Super cool vibe inside and wasn't too crowded when we went. Everything was really fresh and the ingredients were of great quality. The lemon tart was amazing!! Not keen on the sugar cookie I chose for a free cookie with help check in, but their complimentary mini choco chip cookies made up for it. Highly recommend this place! We actually ended up going here after ghost ranch had too long of a wait, and we're really really glad we tried them.

Overall a good place to have a smaller meal. Both indoor and outdoor seating. They did a good job with making you feel in a private area. The location is the corner of rural and Warner.

Usually great food but absolutely the most disgusting, horrible coffee I've ever tasted in my life. It doesn't smell like coffee, it doesn't taste like coffee, and it looks like tea in the cup. They should be ashamed to serve that nasty swill with their often delightful food. Barf! The owners/management are apparently not serious about being in the food service industry. The whole affair seems more like someone's hobby. Disappointing for such a cool space and location.

Great food usually and the set up is fun and inviting which is a selling point. My rating stems around the cleanliness of the staff and stations. We love coming but often see staff shoveling ice after handling dirty plate and rags. Weve mentioned it several times.

Food is literally farm fresh. Amazing how good the food was. And I recommend the "Impossible Wings"! They're really not called that, but why not? The cauliflower wings are awesome!
