This place is run by a wonderful lady who travels to Mexico to help the children in need! Don't forget to leave a contribution in the large glass jar. Only open until 2 and crowded but the food and hugs are awesome. No phone, so no reservation.

Open weekdays m-f breakfast and lunch. The food is good and you get lots. She makes her own soups from scratch, as a former chef I say her creativity is wonderful. You will most likely get a hug from her, we have . So clean, friendly, tasty food you get it all here.

The Little One has got to be the friendliest place to get downtown, and quite possibly anywhere, Tucson. The service is quick and attentive. The food is outstanding. We just love coming here!

Amazing food in a very small and cozy place. Lunch time might be crowded but it is totally worthy. The food tastes as home-made as you can hope.
