The food at Tohono Chul Garden Bistro is fine, but what many come for is the location inside a wildlife sanctuary, surrounded by flowering desert gardens. The Southwestern interior has Mexican tile, light wood, and a cobblestone courtyard. Dine on the back patio to watch hummingbirds and butterflies. House favorites include prickly pear and pistachio chicken on croissant, vegan quiche (a tofu-and-garbanzo custard with veggies), burgers, and assorted salads. Open daily
8 to 4:30, the bistro also serves breakfast, a popular choice on weekends.
