A Wonderful, Unique place to unwind and have a cup (or seven) of tea! The well-informed staff will explain things about tea to you that you never would have guessed, making the enjoyment of their vast selection that much more fun.
Quiet, cozy, comfortable, a "gem". Excellent food and great service. I've had the cheese by the ounce and have been able to try many different varieties, it is served with fresh pears and a raspberry jam that complements the cheeses perfectly! The Wild Mushroom Salad is to die for, every bite of the delicious meatiness of the mushrooms, spicy crunchiness of the pecans and sweet tangy bacon vinaigrette satisfied me beyond my expectations, I've ordered this salad on three different visits, it's just that good! The grilled pineapple pound cake is light but indulgent and a perfect end to a perfect meal!
This place is awesome! Truly a must see place if you visit Tucson or are from here but have never stopped in.
The food is top of the line, mostly organic including their outstanding coffees!
Staff is friendly and really makes you feel welcome as does the owner/creator of the Glass Onion, Jen has out done herself with this charming Bealtes themed cafe.
Appropriate for all ages as they do not sell alcohol. The live musical performances really add to the flavor of this rare find (LOCALLY OWNED AND OPERATED)
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'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.
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
Dine in, take out, cater, it is all first class at Feast. The talented, friendly chef aims to please and he doesn't miss. Feast is an adventure if you are only popping in to pick up a picnic carry out, have lunch from the inventive menu, or order a catered party.
This is one of the places we think of when introducing friends to downtown dining. Casual but hip, well-prepared dishes, and a friendly staff. Favs are the mac & cheese, and steak frites.
Had my daughter's birthday celebration at the Cup in April and as usual, we loved it! Great food, relaxed service and that great "downtown" experience!
Their desserts are amazing, and their specials will sometimes blow your mind. Their staff has always been very friendly every time I've gone in. To accentuate the laid-back atmosphere, they have games you can play, or you can bring your own. They also have a great selection of hot teas, along with the standard milk selection. Sometimes you have to wait a while to get a table, and sometimes it takes a little bit to get your stuff, but that's because they're always busy with people who know just how amazing they are.
gone here many times and always enjoy it. Love the planked waldorf salad.
This place is fun and I really wish more people knew about it and gave it a try. It opened in May 2010 but it isn't really promoted anywhere but Facebook and is tucked inside the Pioneer Building where Monkey Box used to be, by Ike's. However, it has great hours--one of the only places downtown (if not the only one) that's open early for breakfast and late for dinner 7 days a week-- and has a fair number of regulars. The printed menu is limited, with a number of seafood dishes (I say the fish tacos are the best in town), a kobe burger, a few salads, and the like, but I've seen the kitchen staff accommodate a number of special requests, including vegetarian and vegan. The ambiance is very pleasant, with gallery space on the walls, not-too-loud music, a full bar, and a little patio outside. The drawbacks are mostly logistical in that the space is not very big, but at least it's laid out pretty well so it doesn't feel cramped. You also have to get a key and go down a hallway to get to the bathroom, which is kind of annoying, but the well-lit building is mostly used for professional offices, there's a security guard, and the bathrooms are clean. There's only one TV and it's usually on mute--a welcome change from most places in town, for a lot of us--but they do show the big games (like UA sports, World Cup, etc.) and, again, all you have to do is ask if there's something you want to catch. There's been some staff turnover but the steadies are friendly yet professional, and it seems to draw mostly a mellow-but-not-uptight crowd during the day. Weekend nights will sometimes have djs spinning house music until the morning, and there's live jazz every Friday.
Had a great breakfast on the patio recently. Good food!
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
The place is nice and laid back. It is great to be able to watch people go by in one of the few areas where there is actual foot traffic in this city. However, sometimes I feel as if the staff are a little prejudiced toward what I call the "hemp-necklace" crowd and can be quite dismissive toward people who don't wear the badges of their little alternative society, such as ragged clothes, multiple piercings, and tattoos.
We used to stop in to grab coffee on our way to work quite a lot. Owner was nice, but so chatty that it kind of got on our nerves...so we didn't go in as much. The last time we did stop in, she must have been in a bad mood, because when we placed our coffee orders she said something to the effect of "It's going to be awhile because I'm cooking these orders" in a snippy voice. Okay.....fine.....sorry to have bothered you. And we haven't been back since.
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.
