I, personally, value 'truth in advertising', and so, my main complaint about Lovin' Spoonfuls is that, quite misleadingly, it persists in advertising itself as "vegetarian". Vegetarian it is, decidedly not. They use no butter, no cream, nothing from animals, at all. And so, their 'Apple Betty' desert for Thanksgiving was little more than a baked apple with raisins and oats... More

We had lunch here twice and enjoyed it very much. I'm not a vegetarian but I'm interested in healthy food, and if I lived in Tucson, I'd be a regular. The first time, I did their "build your own burger." I chose a falafel burger on pita bread, with raw spinach, grilled mushrooms. and grilled onions, and the cilantro mayonnaise.... More

Our son is vegan so we met here for lunch. We were pleasantly surprised by the food. We enjoyed our meals.

You walk in and order at the counter and they don't take AMEX. We ordered the nut loaf which they say is one of their best entrees. It was just ok. The prices are low, the service sparse but preset, the ambiance friendly but very much MacDonald style, and yes, they do vegan, but in this town there are so... More

This is an unpretentious, well-lit, friendly little place that offers well-presented basics. I ordered a build-your-own bowl with quinoa, olives, broccoli and "meatballs". The "meatballs" were a tasty surprise: packed with flavor. I also sampled one of their tiny cupcakes--a relief from the dinner-plate sized things that pass for cupcakes in CA. It had real strawberries in the middle! Also,... More

As far as vegetarian food goes, the food we got here was pretty standard and not much innovation or inventiveness. What you see is what you get. But, on the other hand, I have to give it to them for having a vegetarian restaurant. We visited Tucson and enjoyed it, but if we lived in Tucson, we wouldn't necessarily make... More

Lovin' Spoonfuls is a vegan treat- you can order anything off of the menu and not have to ask if the ingredients are vegan as this is a 100% vegan restaurant. The ordering is at the counter and then you chose a table while your food is prepared. The food is sort of vegan dinner style with sandwiches, burgers, fries... More

Visited here and was delighted at the wide range of food offered and the variety of gluten free options. Food was very tasty and quickly prepared. Staff was professional and helpful. I was delighted by how involved in the community they are and their ties to local charities and ethical causes.
