Description: This place has a great atmosphere and an eclectic menu. Great deserts! Information is on the menu but the wait staff are very helpful!
Comments: Jan 17, 2017: Jo and her staff were wonderful: friendly, VERY aware of GF issues, and the ambiance there is great. Definitely worth the trip. Let them know you are GF just to be safe, but you will have a great experience. I was in Tucson for 4 days and this was the best meal and best service I had hands down.

Aug 5, 2012: This courtyard restaurant is one of the most forward cooking places I have been to since I found out that I needed to eat GF earlier this year. We had dinner there on 8-4-12 and I'm anxious to go back. Many items are GF, and others, mostly sandwiches, can be served on their own GF bread. The menu states a $1 charge for GF bread on sandwiches, and 50 cent charge for GF bread in place of side bread with salads/soups. I didn't try one, since it was just too hot for a sandwich. My husband and I shared a plate of steak tacos, and left room for a hot fudge sundae later, while enjoying the live acoustic music. The tacos, beans/rice were all tasty and not the run of the mill. This is very fresh, tasty, non-greasy food. The sundae was worth the entree sharing. A big mug of vanilla ice cream, with a hot little pitcher of fudge, that is a house made...dark choc flavor with vanilla. There are many unique cocktails, including some with herb infused liquors. They have live music on weekends, and the surrounding shops of Old Town Artisans is open until 8 p.m. or so. A nice way to enjoy the summer evening.
