About the restaurant
Enjoy exceptional service and a friendly atmosphere at Nook. It's a wonderful spot for enjoying a delicious meal while catching up with old acquaintances over lunch. Nook is located just south of the Prima County Public Library on East Congress Street. It opened in 2015 and has become a trendy eatery that serves up New American cuisine. Owners Nikki and Matt Thompson along with Todd Anderson are fellow Tucsonans who love their community. Local artists have work showcased throughout this contemporary restaurant. Nook also prides itself on serving up locally sourced food. Try the Godfather Benedict with prosciutto, arugula, poached egg hollandaise and balsamic drizzle for breakfast, or come down during lunch for a green corn tamale pie with cabbage salad. It offers take-out service and is open for breakfast and lunch during the week. This restaurant also serves brunch on Saturday and Sunday.

About the restaurant
Recently awarded "Top 100 Neighborhood Gems in America" by OpenTable!

Reservations are highly recommended for dinner due to limited indoor seating and high demand for patio seating. For breakfast and lunch we are first-come, first-serve, no reservations.

The Cup Cafe is a downtown Tucson tradition with a reputation for delicious, inspired fare, alive with flavor. A full-service, historic modern bistro, The Cup Cafe appeals to locals and visitors alike.

Enjoy the variety of The Cup’s all-day menu and the fresh, delectable, and ever-changing daily features. Selections include build-your-own omelets, unique salads, great appetizers, full-course entrees, classic sandwiches, as well as vegan and vegetarian options.

The Cup also proudly features homemade desserts, baked in-house, as well as a comfortable and expansive outdoor patio, full-service bar, unique signature cocktails, and intriguing wine selections.

Thank you!

About the restaurant
The Grill at Quail Creek is truly a delightful centerpiece, a gathering place where neighbors come to catch up on conversation or plan that next big adventure. With the renovation and expansion complete, it now features larger indoor & outdoor dining areas, board room with fireplace for private parties, and a U-shaped bar for enjoying happy hours with friends.

Happy Hour “Wednesday” features their yummy Pork Rib specials, and the Drinks are always on point! We sat on the open patio and found their use of umbrellas sufficient for summer shading. Certainly going to be another date nite, soon!

Food and service were excellent. Drink menu sparse. Margaritas were just ok, rather small at $10. Will be going back!

Spectacular food and service! Great selections. We were doing Mother’s Day brunch. So it’s more than normal of course. Great views. Outdoor seating if you want it.
