Traditional dining at this desert oasis.
Arizona Inn is a Tucson landmark. The historic grounds are an oasis in the middle of town.
Entering the dining room transports you back decades to a time when service was a different art form and mornings were spent quietly with well-prepared food and the Sunday paper.
The Vegetarian Omelette ($14) at Arizona Inn is a simple American-style omelette featuring melted havarti and fresh spinach and tomatoes, topped with a large fan of creamy avocado. The tangy, garlicky tomatoes burst with flavor and the house potatoes are tender and delicious.
Save the sweet treat for last — their vibrant house-made marmalade. It’s best served on toast with the addition of agave butter and paired with a cup of joe as a slow start to the morning.
*Please note that the omelette appears on the breakfast menu and is served until 11 a.m.
Arizona Inn is located at 2200 E. Elm St. For more information, visit arizonainn.com/dining/main-dining.
