While the number of dining options in Tucson has grown significantly over the past few years, it's easy to get stuck in the all too familiar "where-should-we-eat" rut.
One of the more unique options is Cafe Botanica inside the Tucson Botanical Gardens. An uber-quaint cafe featuring mostly patio seating, Cafe Botanica is a worthy addition in a beautiful setting pushing the boundaries of regional cuisine with local ingredients and crafty offerings.
From 5-8pm, this Thursday, July 16 the garden cafe continues Twilight Thursdays with complimentary garden admission (with a confirmed reservation) and a fresh menu. In fact, every Thursday is Twilight Thursday and features a fresh menu. You'll need to check the Cafe Botanica site regularly to stay abreast of current offerings, but for this week, the menu is as follows.
As pictured, Cafe Botanica offers a delightful and refreshing selection of original non-alcoholic beverages, including Mint Cardamom Iced Tea, Sonoran Prickly Pear Sparkling Soda, and Apricot Grape Limeade, but if it's wine or beer you prefer, you'll have to bring your own.
