Lush, green tangles of leaves sway from the high ceiling of Sunrise Cafe, one of Tucson's best kept secrets for sixteen years, comprising a veritable hanging garden above diners' heads. As this suspended forest glows with pockets of sunlight, Mediterranean cuisine floods the dining room with garlicky, char-grilled fragrances. While some American favorites, like pancake breakfasts, show up on tables, the menu primarily highlights Kurdish and Greek dishes. Owner Amed Mamood, himself a Kurdish American, mines his own gustatory heritage to plate the likes of babaghanouj, gyro platters, shish kebabs, and falafel sandwiches.
