Food For Ascension Café offers Tucson’s finest plant-based cuisine. This authentic farm-to-table restaurant is located in the historic warehouse art district and embraces a new paradigm of sustainable community by providing pure food through fair systems which interact to support a vibrant culture and community by serving the finest all-organic cuisine.
Food For Ascension Café brings food justice to the world by showcasing slow food preparation and providing a welcoming, home-cooked experience. More than 90 percent of the ingredients on the Food For Ascension Café menu are sourced in a 100-mile radius. It is a locavore’s paradise, with vegetable-forward culinary creations that do not disappoint.
Food For Ascension Café has developed synergistic relationships with local growers, farmers and crafters, and the menu is creatively prepared in harmony with nature’s rhythmic cycle and changes as often as needed, based on the quantity, variety and accessibility of local produce.
Food For Ascension Café is also planning cooking demonstrations, classes, lectures and workshops on locally sourced and naturally grown food and its preparation, sponsored by the nonprofit Soulistic Medical Institute.
