A Noshing reader reported that the Daybreak Café at 8270 S. Houghton Road in Santa Rita Ranch has closed; its phone line seems to have been disconnected.

Award-Winning Tomatoes

Eurofresh Farms of Willcox received the 2008 ChefsBest™ Award for their tomatoes on the vine (TOV). The blind taste-test judging was conducted by professional chefs in the San Francisco Bay Area. Tomatoes were judged on their appearance, aroma, flavor, taste and texture, as well as their flavor and texture when used in a buffalo mozzarella, basil leaf and olive oil recipe. Eurofresh Farms has been growing and selling TOVs since 1998 and currently has exclusive rights to produce and market the "brilliant" variety of TOVs in the United States and Canada.
