Best Lunch Spots Walking Distance from La Suprema Works

Updated: Jun 24, 2020

The Featured Four — Places to Eat in Barrio Viejo

From Tex-Mex style cuisine and Ethiopian flare, to locally sourced ingredients backed by a mission to empower, Barrio Viejo is your place to enjoy and explore. Here are four favorites among the many places to eat deliciously within walking distance of beautiful La Suprema Works & Events — a new Tucson coworking space.

Going on four generations of family-ownership, this place is known for its carne seca. When El Minuto first opened in 1936, the only menu items were menudo and tacos. The menu has expanded to incorporate Sonoran-style recipes that include an array of lunch special options. Enjoy an assortment of mini-chimis with rice and beans, or sip of some warm albondigas (a brothy, meatball soup) with a quesadilla on the side. The restaurant has been open for nearly 84 years and is going strong as a Tucson staple, located across the street from La Suprema on Main St.

This place is on a mission to take care of people and the environment.

Retail items are sourced through a strong mission to prioritize women- and women of color-owned businesses.

Cafe Desta opened in 2010 and is now managed by co-owner Huruy “Zee” Zerzghi. Dr. Zee also works at the University of Arizona and though he had not planned to run a restaurant, he had close ties working with the Eritrean refugee community. The original owners were in need of a chef to continue preparing the traditional cuisine, and Zee found the perfect fit in Minet Abay. Today, Zee, Abay, and 3 others joined as co-owners to keep the restaurant going and we are so thankful they did! All spices are shipped from Ethiopia and the highest quality teff grain is used in the traditional, healthy, and gluten-free injera. Enjoy the flavors of Ethiopia and discover for yourself why the Amharic word “desta” translates perfectly to “joy.”

Open Every Day

From 11 AM to 9 PM

This little neighborhood gem is almost as new as they come. The sister cafe to The Coronet, and once just a dream, Fonda la Hermanita is a beautiful place for locally sourced, rich flavors with friends inspired by the rich origins of Mexican gastronomy. Pop in for a counter service breakfast or lunch made with wholesome ingredients, or come to enjoy a sip of exceptional coffee and a snack in the quaint courtyard.

Open Every Day

From 8 AM to 2 PM

Buen provecho!
