I know little about vegan faire, so I relied on the staff to guide my breakfast choice. I got the breakfast scramble. The potatoes (home fries) were fantastic. Nice and crunchy, The scramble (naively thought they were eggs) was tofu based and very flavorful. Great decor inside with wonderful books on healthy eating. The owner came out and shared a... More

Stopped in yesterday for lunch. I had the Adzuki burger. It was totally unappetizing - It lacked flavor, actually had no flavor at all, no seasoning, and it was served on a tasteless white refined flour hamburger bun you would find at any commercial grocery store. Also included was a sm. bag of greasy kettle chips, not very healthy. It... More

I've eaten here for years now. Every time I'm in Tucson, I make sure to get breakfast here. They had some amazing french toast on the menu this time. My omnivore husband likes eating there, too. Definitely check it out if you are in Tucson!

Vegan by choice a vegetarian restaurant that actually makes a burger that tastes like a burger but is a healthy alternative. Most vegetarian burgers do not come close to the real thing but the wildcat burger (named for the Arizona wildcat sports team) hit the highest marks ever on originality and taste combinations like bacon that tasted like bacon and...

I was thrilled to "rediscover" Lovin' Spoonfuls during my recent trip to Tucson. A great little casual vegetarian cafe with a nice selection of meal options - all freshly prepared. I'll definitely be back!

While visiting Tucson, my sister-in-law took me to Lovin' Spoonfuls for lunch. I had never eaten at a vegetarian restaurant before. This was a wonderful experience. I had the chili and my sister-in-law had a lentil soup. Both were flavorful. The chili was packed with vegetables - the usual ones you expect in chili plus mushrooms and more. The lentil... More

Healthy, family style meals that are delicious! The owner, Peggy Raisglid, is a Ph.D. chemist turned vegan 20+ years ago who loves to cook and entertain. She has taken all time favorite (non vegetarian) recipes and turned them into vegetarian meals. Meat eaters and vegans both love the food here! I have taken deserts, entrees and appetizers to events for... More

The crew at Lovin Spoonfuls have created an intimate bistro experience in the heart of the Old Pueblo. This is one of my "go-to" spots for out of town visitors, everyone, Vegetarian or not, can find something to fall in love with on the menu. My particular favorites are the Adzuki bean build a burger, and the Coconut curry over... More

I finally ventured over to this place on a Friday this lent season (read: no meat allowed) and I am so glad I did. I even convinced my husband to go, although he was less than enthusiastic to try anything vegan. Between the two of us, we order the chili "cheese" fries, Portobello wrap, and bbq "chicken" sandwich. We enjoyed... More
