I have been regularly going to Ike's Coffee and Tea for about 3 years. They have a pretty wide selection of teas. They will accommodate you and make ice tea out of their types of normally hot teas. I mostly purchase the "Prickly Pear" Ice Tea. It has a nice refreshing taste and is not brewed too strong. Their have their own label for coffee. I have been pretty satisfied the limited times I had their coffee drinks. A friend that regularly visits Tucson, raves about their coffee. She states it is the best coffee she has had from a cafe.
I was a vegetarian and have only tried a couple of their plates. They do have a few vegetarian options. They have a Veggie a la Rosene, a sandwich with humus, green chilies, apples and feta. I regularly get the Humus Plate, which is a good snack for two people. Now, that I am a vegan, that is the only daily option for me.
The staff have always been nice and pleasant. They always greet you with a smile and have tried to answer my questions about certain menu items. Make sure you leave a tip when you visit here. They deserve it.
They do have daily soups. Which is my only negative comment about Ike's. Some of staff does not seem for sure to know the allergen content of the soup and if it is vegan. It would be a good idea to have a book that states what is in each soup, so the staff can reference it. I have been to other restaurants and cafes and they have this type of chart to help their customers.
Overall in my opinion Ike's is one the best coffee places in town. They are a weekly stop on when I go to the grocery store or doing my errands on that side of town.
