In town for just one night so thought we would give this place a go. I had the salmon salad and my wife had the fish tacos. Both meals were absolutely delicious, and would go as far to say that was the best salad I have ever had. My wife also loved her tacos, which were polished off with one... More

Spinach salad was fantastic. Service was thoughtful as I warned them that I needed a grilled vegie sandwich to go but that I didn't want prepared too soon as it is supposed to be served hot. The timing was great and the sandwich and drink was wrapped and delivered to our table about the time we finished our salads. When... More

If you are cruising 4th Ave either during the day or out at the bars at night you need to stop by the B-line Cafe for dessert. And by dessert I mean the holy grail that is the Strawberry/Mango Pie! Have them warm it up for you and do not plan to share...it's so good you won't want too!

We enjoyed dinner here last night, the food was great but it was a little pricey. They have a great dessert selection. The atmosphere is really fun too.

We stopped for breakfast about 9:00AM. The line really started after we sat down. There aren't a lot of tables so Dinner would be another problem for them. The breakfast was good except for the Canadian Bacon. It was paper thin, dried out, and unappealing. The potatoes were too done and dried out. The eggs and toast was good. We... More

We were just wandering in the Fourth Avenue area of Tucson playing tourist. Fourth Avenue is a bit similar to some areas in San Francisco and old Sausalito from the late 60s & early 70s, funky shops and restaurants and is actually a pretty cool place for 2014. We decided to have lunch as we wandered along. There were several... More

This place was one of Rachel Rays favs so we have it a whirl. Full of college kids on a weeknight. Good sign. I had a burrito and wife had a salad. Got dessert for the road. Nice! Eccentric place. Give it a try!

This is a very fun, small restaurant with fabulous desserts! They also have a varied menu and serve beer and wine. It is a very friendly place and during our 2 visits it was bustling. Much more a local place than a touristy one!

We are only in town for a short while and the B Line was a MUST on our places to stop and eat. We've been coming here for a few years. The seasonal soup is always fantastic. I always get the fish tacos for dinner and for lunch, the tuna salad sandwich or black bean burger. My husband can never... More
