I never knew that this gem was in Tucson. Our large network group had our monthly get together her. They handled everything beautiful. They served us finger foods and drinks. We can hardly wait to go for lunch and enjoy a full meal.

There is no link on their website and I didn't find them on OpenTable. I really thought I had seen them on OpenTable, but I just checked and the app said to call the business. Perhaps you can email them for reservations.
