Also on 5/27 at both Whole Foods (Speedway and 7133 Oracle Road), 5% of the day’s net sales will benefit the Tucson Desert Museum.

Closed: Caffe Diva
What has been a Campbell Avenue landmark, closed May 16. According to this website, Caffe Diva had bad customer service. Can one person cause the demise of a long standing  favorite?   I haven’t been to Caffe Diva for about a year and during my last visit, service was fine. But when I’m on Campbell Ave., and meeting friends for coffee—I go to Raging Sage.  Does anyone know if Coffee’s On is still open? I have been trying to call their phone number (300-5493) for a few days and the line is always busy.
