This small shop in the Catalina foothills has been the leader in Tucson's frozen yogurt market for quite a while, and once you've tasted the creamy cold stuff here, you'll know why. Choose between different sizes and flavors, cups or cones, yogurt pies and egee parfaits, or get the famous Cappucino Chiller. Most products are available in non-fat varieties, too. The decor reflects the color of the product: all white and creamy, with a touch of pink (the strawberry flavor) around the booths.

The chef is up with the sun to tempt local senses with the sweet scent of freshly baked scones, perhaps the best variety in town. Try the unusual Sage Scone, a flaky sensation for just $2 or a Crunchy Sable, a French pastry that is the rage in Paris. Shake yourself awake with freshly roasted coffee in any size and flavor your heart desires, served inside or on the pleasant tree-shaded patio. Be aware that owner Roger Sliker takes care to use only shade-grown coffee beans, thereby protecting the tropical tree canopy for migratory birds that pass through Southern Arizona during wintertime.

This is where the smokers of Tucson take their last stand. The place serves some of the strongest coffee in town, which is why night owls love to hang out there until long after midnight. Non-smokers usually prefer to sit outside, relishing instead the exhaust fumes coming from busy and noisy Speedway Boulevard. Think dark, think funky: Wooden chairs and tables matching the clothing of the clientele, which is overwhelmingly young, hip and into art. The espresso drinks are very good and very strong. According to Safehouse aficionados, Starbucks coffee is for wimps.

A few years ago, when owner Jo Jensen learned that Baskin-Robbins would not renew her franchise agreement, she decided to go on her own. Instead of closing the store, she hooked up with another ice cream manufacturer in Santa Barbara and now serves up creamy ice cream that is more flavorful than the former corporate variety. This place offers 50 flavors for a single cone. Of course, there is also the whole range of sundaes, banana splits and floats to choose from.
