Delectables owner Donna Fiore was the first to introduce gourmet items to Fourth Avenue in the 70s back when the Avenue moved at a slower pace. The menu showcased mustards, pates and imported cheeses that Fiore had specially shipped in from New York long before such products were common. Housed in a converted vintage motorcycle dealership, Delectables has always served as a place for students, locals and guests to relax and grow with Tucson through the city’s changes. Between their gourmet menu, sophisticated catering and mouth-watering pastry case, Delectables has something for everyone. Delectables offers “Yappee Hour” on Mondays for patrons with pups, half priced wine bottles on Wednesdays, Poker Night Thursdays and an ever changing lineup of entertainment. Their “customers and staffers for life” program is a strong one and still evolves today as new folks walk thru the door.
