Lots of variety, food and drink

This is an informal cafe on 4th Avenue and seems to always be busy. You order at the counter and food is brought to you. Check out the pies on the rotating glass cabinet!

Great Real Food . Fresh, abundant, like prepared at home. And.......certainly the best home made pastry anywhere. Whenever I am in Tucson, I am coming here.

The view of the desert case from across the street through the large bay windows drew me in. There was a Black Forest item that looked like a cross between a Cream Puff and a Macaroon and was abut the size of a Big Mac. However, IMHO, the Key Lime pie was the best!

Ate here three times in two days. Dinner, lunch and evening wine with dessert. They never fail to impress, good honest food. Simple, healthy and tasty. The desserts really shine.

Based on a recommendation from one of the employees who works here, who happened to be filling in at sister restaurant Wilco, I went to B Line for the "Crepe Cakes". They were amazing! And my companions breakfast burrito was stellar as well. Great little breakfast spot that I will keep in mind for future visits to Tucson!

Instead of eating at the Arizona Inn we made our way here for breakfast on both days we were in Tucson. My husband had the chorizo, egg and cheese burrito. I had a toasted sesame bagel.

Okay we have only ever had the pie there. Anytime we drive through Tucson we stop and get a piece of pie. It is that good! The pies are freshly made and we have never had a bad slice. We have tried quite a few. I'm looking forward to passing through Tucson again, for the pie.

Went to the B-Line for lunch and ordered the Italian sausage and roasted peppers in a red sauce with a side of herb penne rigate. OMG. The in house made sausage was lean and not salty and very tasty. Paired with penne pasta with olive oil, garlic slices, parsley and basil - the overall taste of the dish was phenomenal.... More
