3 3/4 stars. Simple wholesome fare. Had the fish tacos. Salsa was very good. Not enough. Fresh ingredients. Clean. Although I sat by the window and there was a smudge on it. There were flies buzzing around where I sat. Good variety of choices. The deserts look great. Did not try one.

I love this very Tucson place on 4th Avenue; the pastries are out of sight and it is a great little place to have a cup of coffee or lunch. You'll see a mix of mostly young people but seniors too; all much hipper than I am. Wow -the desserts!

This is a funky spot staffed by energetic young people. It's mostly self-service, but they offer free wi-fi and don't rush you out. The breakfast menu has elegant and creative touches, like the crepes pancakes. Don't expect an elaborate menu, but it's worth the visit for the cute neighborhood in a historic district near a light-rail stop.

I have been going to B-Line off and on for the past year that I have lived in Tucson and always enjoy the atmosphere, convenience and great customer service. Recently I decided to try their fish tacos and I was so delighted that I did! I rarely eat fish, but when I do crave it, I want it to be... More

When the Tourist Information Center continually lists this as one of Tucson's Must Do, how could you go wrong. Now our 4th year in a row, and, we are in total agreement. EVERY year the food is just as good as the previous year, if not even better. The pancakes w pecan butter, the grilled quesadilla, and, any dessert -... More

We stopped in for a late lunch with friends. The service was great and we didn't have to wait long for our food. Everyone enjoyed their food and the pie was wonderful even though the pie was a little pricey. We lingered for quite a while and they continually filled our water and coffee. Great place to go and I... More

Such a fun place to go to when exploring 6th street! Very casual and always relaxing. Take all out of towners here for a great lunch after shopping.

Popular place. My burrito was tasty though my companion's burrito was dry. The menu had good variety and was priced reasonably. Good assortment of desserts though I didn't try any.

The coffee was so strong it tasted as if it had been standing for a long time although we knew it was freshly made. All 3 of us couldn't drink it even when hot water was added. The eggs and bacon were dry and overcooked. The biscuits were very good as was the strawberry jam which had whole strawberries and... More
