We stayed the night at the cool retro motor inn connected to this quaint coffee shop with a retro airplane motif, so for breakfast the next day it was a given that we'd check it out. I had the carmel macchiato, which i considered the best I'd had. They have a nice selection of sandwiches made with your choice of... More

After spending the night in Tucumcari, I stopped by Circa and ordered a caramel macchiato. It was fantastic! I will definitely be stopping here again on my next visit to Tucumcari. There are plenty of neat retro elements to look at while waiting on your order.

Located on the Old Historic Route 66 Motel grounds, this is a great place to enjoy breakfast. Lots of Cold War memorabilia and a strong WiFi signal. The food is great! People are friendly!

Great coffee and panini! The place was clean and offered inside and outside seating. It was warm inside so we ate outside. We had breakfast panini's and they were good. Coffee refills are 99cents.

My daughter reports the frozen atomic blast was great tasting and had enough caffeine to start a lawn mower courtesy of 6 shots of espresso. The hot coffee beverages are good as well. Though we didn't try any of the pastries, they looked delicious. Very friendly staff.

My daughter and I stopped here to have a Latte and macchiato before hitting the road and we loved it! We ended up staying 30 minutes and wished we could have hung out all day. Very comfortable and charming. With historic memorabilia and interesting items of decor we were very engaged. I will make this a stop for sure on... More

For years, my husband and I had wanted to stay at the Route 66 motel in Tucumcari. We finally did, and it was MARVELOUS....but then so was the Circa Espresso Bar that is on the property of the motel. Great coffee, Wi Fi, pastries....all in a real "cool" atmosphere. I noticed the locals were coming in for their morning coffee... More
