Best Place to Pretend You're Scorcese


One of the best "diner" movies--Martin Scorcese's Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore--was filmed right here in Tucson. Mel's Diner was home to greasy food, sassy waitresses and unusual regulars. Not so at Robert's restaurant. At Robert's--not where Alice was filmed, but similar--you'll find great food served up by cheerful waitresses always ready to fill your cup with hot coffee. Breakfasts are hardy and delicious. Lunches could pass for something out of mom's kitchen. But it's the baked goods that really bring them back. Breads are housemade, and the cinnamon rolls and pies are the tops! On any given day, you'll find at least a dozen fresh pies in the case. Robert's serves breakfast all day, but hours are limited to 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
