Open All Day
I dislike it when restaurants serve lunch only during certain hours. Sometimes at 3 p.m., I feel like a late lunch or a snack. Montana Avenue is now open from 11 a.m. serving menu items at a variety of price points throughout the day at 6390 E. Grant Road; 298-2020. Check out the menu online
Paradise Bakery and Café (PB&C) plans to open a second Tucson location at Main Gate Square on University Boulevard in October 2007. The first location is in Casas Adobes Plaza, 7109 N. Oracle Road; 219-5003. In 1974, PB&C was founded by a group of guys who began selling cookies from a storefront on the Long Beach, Calif., marina. Today, the fast-casual chain operates 47 stores in 10 states and is set to embark on a growth streak that will nearly double the size of the company in the next 18 months. Nine stores will be added to the Phoenix area.

A second Zona 78 is slated to open late this year at 7301 E. Tanque Verde Road, in a new building called Tanque Verde Place, across from Udall Park.
