Vegan donuts that taste exactly like the real thing. They offer 3 or 4 varieties, each 99 cents. There is no seating (nor AC) inside. They mostly specialize in non-vegan cakes & cookies. Open 7 to 5 ish.

Love this place...the only place I can go in Tucson and have so much choice as a vegan! Their breakfasts are fantastic, especially the tofu scrambles. I suppose their menu is mixed Americana, nut loaf, burgers, country style platter, stir fry, curry...but all vegan. My favorite is the adzuki burger, I could eat it every day.

Ambiance is nice, but order at the counter makes it quite casual. The owner is nearly always there, she is wonderfully friendly.

The desserts are a stand-out, any of the chocolate varieties are fantastic. They always have several cakes, pies and cookies, sometimes I go just for dessert.

As previously said, very hip and stylish decor. I've been here several times and had different entrees each time. The service is fantastic and are always willing to accomodate. You can ask for the naan without butter, the ones I've had were fantastic. Nothing on the menu is marked vegan, but we usually ask to make sure it will be.

The Aloo Matar Gobhi, Mumbai aloo, Baingan Bharta, Mushroom Do Pyaza are wonderful (the last two are my absolute favorites). I often bring home leftovers with the saffron rice, so tasty!

Really a classy place, but a fair bit out of the way from central Tucson.

Absolutely nothing vegan on the menu. It was really busy and the server took forever. We had to veganize a pre-existing item, which ended up being ridiculously expensive for what we actually got. Nice setting, but would have been better off trying to find something to eat in the gift shop.

The Tucson Tamale Company in Tucson, Arizona

There are a couple of vegan options and are labelled as such. The Berkeley, Austin and New Delhi are great. They sell a few other flavors frozen only. The New Delhi is quite tasty and ingenious blend of flavors, coconut milk, sweet potato.

The restaurant is decidedly un-fancy, order at counter, food in baskets. You can also get the tamales hot or frozen at the farmer's market, such as Sundays at the St. Philips Plaza. You can also find them frozen at Sunflower and Whole Foods.

The tamales are pretty good, but overpriced for what you get. $6-7 for 2 tamales. Eh.
