Veggie, Vegan, and Gluten Free Specialties.

Delicious veggie and vegan offerings of all sorts. Decadent deserts. Great herbal iced tea. Owner and staff are very knowledgeable chefs (kitchen chemists) where you can comfortably know that plant-based options are real and wonderful.

This place is one of the best restaurants I've ever been to! I have gone several times for breakfast and for lunch, usually in a mixed group of vegetarians and meat eaters. I have yet to see anyone disappointed by the food here. The meat eaters usually leave puzzled by how they can't even tell the difference that they weren't... More

This place has a wide variety of lunch and dinner options. I stopped by for dinner and tried their Thai Vegetable Curry with Mock Chicken. I am not a vegan, yet I still enjoyed the food. It was rich with flavor and the meal was very appetizing. The dinner item also comes with a salad as well. Photo: https://instagram.com/p/3zxfMITTex/

First time visit & I left highly impressed! Very friendly, top notch employees that are happy to answer any questions. The owner introduced herself & was very friendly & knowledgeable. Large menu with much to choose from. The atmosphere is laid back (comfortable), clean & inviting (NOT colorful & hippy style like some other veg places.) My meat eating friends... More

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!
