Hub Restaurant and Ice Creamery

Hub had a following before it even opened: Its very active Facebook presence led to great anticipation. And the restaurant, which bills itself as offering "lunch/dinner/ice cream," does not disappoint: Whenever we visit, this joint is nearly packed. There are various reasons for that—attentive service, an utter lack of attitude, and limitless tastes of the house-made ice cream (with luscious flavors such as passion fruit/white chocolate, and I-dare-you options like "Grandpa's Breakfast": bourbon and bacon). The guests are not, as one might expect from its location, downtown hipsters: Eastside families, foothills grandparents and every stripe of Tucsonan imaginable seem to find a way to Hub.
