Eating while riding horseback was pioneered by the efficient Mongols, who also adjusted to reading, receiving haircuts, and filling out their taxes atop their four-legged mobiles. Enjoy the convenience of chairs and tables with today’s Groupon. For $7, you get $15 worth of flavorful eats and drinks at Eclectic Café. The Tanque Verde Shopping Center café serves up fresh fare for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Eclectic Café's diverse menu of fresh soups, salads, sandwiches, and Mexican fare, as well as vegetarian and gluten-sensitive treats, will satisfy the noshing needs of every member of your book club or Frank Lloyd Wright cosplay group. Early risers can fill up for a long day of canvassing for dog senatorial candidates on whole-wheat pancakes with chocolate chips and strawberries ($8.75) or a fresh asparagus, ham and Havarti omelette ($9.75). For a lingering lunch or dinner, feast on a warm salad such as the vegetarian Angela’s spicy black-bean Cuban salad ($10), loaded with crunchy veggies and topped with a protein-packed Sonoran black-bean patty, or a corned beef sandwich ($8) overflowing with house-baked meat and melted Swiss cheese. Eclectic Café also makes a full selection of classic Mexican favorites like the carne asada chimichanga ($12.75), crab quesadilla with pineapple salsa ($10.25), and Leos's special chicken tostadas ($11). A cool key lime pie ($5) or house-made Mexican flan ($4.75) provides the sweetest ending since the big shoot-out/sing-off of Clint Eastwood's Hallmark Christmas special.
Eclectic Café boasts an inviting, family-friendly atmosphere, with a shaded outdoor patio best enjoyed over a cool glass of lemonade ($2.50) while eavesdropping on the heated conversation between the two charred inventors in tattered lab coats at the next table. One Groupon can be used for every two people, so casually screen blind dates for signs of madness and excessive knowledge of X-Men chronology over a meal at Eclectic Café.
Remaining true to its name, Eclectic Cafe introduces taste buds to an array of fresh offerings from both contemporary American and Mexican cuisines. Chefs sizzle up double havarti cheeseburgers and albacore melts alongside international dishes such as sonoran black-bean torta and the carne asada tostada. They offer gluten-free options, as well as catering services to accommodate those hosting special events or congressional summits in their home or office.
