We used to frequent Claire's for breakfast when we lived in NW area about 5 years ago. We had to be in Catalina early on a recent Saturday and thought we'd revisit. First clue should have been how empty the place was for a Saturday AM. Food and service sucked. Don't know what happened to this once great place.
This place is great, the yogurt is creamy and good. They have fat free, dairy free, and low calorie/carb options. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to visit a beach themed atmosphere with tasty yogurt. Yay for Malibu
Our Saturday night date night place.
A great and varied dessert selection, but their coffee really leaves something to be desired. Good coffee is a must for a good dessert shop.
Jason's Deli has closed in Tucson. The franchisees have gone out of business as of May 30 2010 at both locations.
Fun crowed but don't come for the food. You'd do just as well eating at a truck stop. Seriously! They basically serve up greasy grill grub. But again, nice enough crowd.
Their service is so slow that I walked out without trying the desert. If I was to ever return to their business I would for-sure take my sleeeping bag.
The Cup Cafe is one of my favorites. I am a regular. Great food and speciality drinks.
Worst Service / Good food. We arrived a party of 8 on a recommendation from a neighboring restaurant. Upon entering the empty dining room I assured myself we would have good service. The menu looked great and after some time waiting for simple bus service, we ordered appetizers and drinks which came out very quickly. After that the server was non existent and I had to get up 3 times to get some one over to our table and the main course took over 45 minutes to get out, 2 plates at a time. The head chef did come out to our table and offered an excuse that the pasta we ordered took extra time to boil water for ( really ???) . I guess the guaranteed %20 tip was enough for our server to justify her totally ignoring us. An offer of free desert or the free stale cookies and brownies they gave our kids is not enough to make up for very poor service. WILL NOT RETURN
An excellent place. The setting may not be Arizona macho, but the food is superb, the staff is overwhelmingly pleasant, and the prices are reasonable. Lunch out doors on a pleasant day is about as good as it gets.
I keep on hoping this place will catch on since its on my side of town. The set up is fun and comfortable, great for small get togethers with firends. The food however is uninspired. The baked goodies are great, but if your looking for a light meal its not so great. Not horrible, just plain and sometimes not as fresh as I'd like.
I've eaten at the B Line a hundred times. Their weekend breakfasts are great. (Try the crepecakes -- even if you don't like pancakes you'll love these. And the biscuits are fantastic.) The fish tacos are the best in town. The pasta alla vodka (or try it with half-salad) is amazing. Deserts vary from great to awesome. Don't neglect the microbrews on tap.
As for the price, it's higher than you might expect an average fare -- but the B Line isn't average, it's really good food. The quality of ingredients is extrememly high (organic greens, high quality chicken and eggs). I expect to pay a little more for food that is this tasty and good for the planet.
Our favorite restaurant in Tucson. Really excellent and imaginative food, in a terrific space. Doug Levy is a fantastic chef, and a warm and friendly host.
I have to admit I don't go here often enough, but when I do I love it! I always have a fresh and delicious salad, they have great iced-tea and end with a yummy chocolate chip cookie. Anytime someone suggest lunch on 4th I opt for Delectables. Plus have NEVER had a problem with the staff, they've always been very friendly. The atmosphere inside is nice and soothing and when it's cooler we like to sit outside and just relax and enjoy 4th. Delectables is Delectable!
Call me crazy, but none of these reviews accuratley deplict my numerous, positivley wonderful dining experiences at Delectables...My husband and I cherish the soft and sensual lighting, music that dosen't overpower our conversation, the wait staff that know when to approach and how to service our table without interupting our mood enhanced by a wonderful selection of wines and accompanied by flavorful, fresh and savory salads and entrees. The owner is hands on, has been in business for over 20 years and would certainly welcome any opporutnity to satisfy her guests. My favorites are the more classic, original Delectables menu items; Greek salad, Tabbouleh, Chef Salad with feta and house dressing, Exotic Turkey salad with pineapple and celery all accompanied by fresh, french bread. The evening entrees such as the Crepes are flavorful, moist and portions are sufficient especially with the desert heat.
I encourage folks to speak up and talk with the Owner, or Manager if their expereince falls short.
ate there several times, service was slow and once my chicken was undercooked. Never go there again.
great food, excellent breakfast, and the baked goods are amazing; i eat here every week and have never had a bad experience, a must try
Eaten here twice. Rundown:
*Nicely rounded beer selection
*Relaxed yet refined atmosphere
*Med-Lg sized portions
*Balanced flavors in all dishes had (fish burrito, salmon salad w/pasta)
*Need to stay open later (suggestion: hire a manager to keep it open later during school to bring in some financial aid :) )
*Deserts, though visually appealing were ho-hum
Ate here once; I got the hummus plate and my friend got the hummus sandwich. Rundown:
*Bruised/not fresh veggies cut up and served
Food here is high quality with great presentation. I have to say that I feel the B Line is a little overpriced for what it is, however. Just bear that in mind if you choose to go here: it is good, but spendy.
The B Line serves a variety of standard cafe fare, sandwiches, soups, and salads, as well as a heartier assortment of entrees, such as Penne alla Vodka and Salmon Salad.
I had the Salmon Salad; the salmon was deliciously marinated and grilled, then laid on a generous bed of mixed greens with various garden salad fixings on the side. You get a choice of dressing, and I chose Soy Ginger. I do wish the greens had been chopped before serving, as there were huge pieces that were awkward. That's my only complaint about the otherwise fine meal.
Someone in our party had a quesedilla, which he claimed was the best he'd ever had.
Everyone in our party was satisfied with the food.
The B Line is housed in a restored building on 4th avenue, which has a rustic kind of ambiance. It's very visually appealing.
The B Line is also usually very populated; would be nice if it stayed opened later. The owner also maintains Time Market at University and 4th ave, which is another Tucson favorite of mine.
