Let’s be honest: You are not going to go to the Nestle Toll House Café by Chip on North Stone Avenue for a flatbread or panini.
You’re going for the signature Toll House chocolate chip everything — ice cream cookies, gooey chocolate chip cookies, cookies parading as birthday cakes, cupcakes, brownies — we could go on but we’re pretty sure your drool level has just reached public embarrassment.
The café at 17. N. Stone Ave., a stone’s throw from Fox Tucson Theatre, is open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
The Royal Room wine bar downtown opens
The Royal Room, Tucson’s newest wine bar, opened its doors Tuesday on the same southeast corner of East Sixth Street and North Sixth Avenue as the newly opened Anello Pizzeria and Crooked Tooth Brewing Company.
The intimate locale (about 1,500 square feet) is just up the street from Tap & Bottle and a couple blocks west of North Fourth Avenue. Its offerings include a rotating list of wines from around the world, said Royal Room co-owner Ian Stupar.
“We want to help start the conversation about wine in Tucson,” Stupar said in an interview with the Star over the summer. “It seemed like an exciting time and opportunity to do something like this.”
Craft beer options and small food dishes meant to complement the wine — things like charcuterie plates, house sandwiches and bruschetta — also are available.
