    Cafe Roka
    MODERN AMERICAN FOOD Chef/Owner Rod Kass has evolved a very personal style of cooking over the past 25 years. The dishes on our menu are inspired primarily by Italian, Californian, Mediterranean, and vegetarian cuisines.
    THE FRESHEST SEASONAL INGREDIENTS Rod seeks out the highest quality foods, focusing on local organic produce, naturally farmed, grass-fed meats, and sustainably harvested seafood.
    WINE BAR New! Featuring the best of Arizona wines. Local and regional selections offered for tasting on the weekends. A limited menu is available for a light lunch or appetizers.

    Cafe Roka serves modern American food. The ‘signature’ of Chef/Owner Rod Kass’ cooking is a style rather than a particular dish or dishes (although you won’t find his Portobello Mushroom and Artichoke lasagna anywhere else). He offers many different tastes, textures, colors, and looks throughout a four course dinner. We are one of the few remaining restaurants in the United States to offer four courses (soup, salad, sorbet, and entrée), without a prix fixe menu.

    Rod often uses nuts, polenta, pasta, and citrus, to create opposite palate combinations of crunchiness/softness, tangy/sweet, spicy/muted, or subtle/rousing. Plates are artfully presented, because the eye plays a large part in anticipation of taste and appreciation of food, often with bright accent sauces complementing the natural color of the food.

    Soups, which vary nightly, are vegetarian based and might be, for example, black bean/smoked white corn, mushroom/potato, or tomato/green chile/cilantro.

    Salads are generally a mix of organic greens. Dressings might be a roasted pine nut/white truffle oil vinaigrette, an apple/sherry vinaigrette, or a creamy basil dressing.

    Sorbet, lime or lemon, is a palate cleanser and prepares the way for the entrée.

    Many people are on restricted food diets. Fortunately we are able to provide interesting and good food for those who are vegan, have problems with gluten, or are on special diets. We also offer innovative and tasty vegetarian food with two or three vegetarian options on every menu.

    Generally, we change our menu twice weekly. About 35 different dishes are rotated through the menu depending on the season and product availability.

    Rod Kass is the chef and owner of Cafe Roka. From 1986-1989, Rod apprenticed at the Phoenix Biltmore, worked at the La Champagne Room at the former Registry Resort, and was chef at the Market Room of the 8700 Club in Scottsdale. He moved to Bisbee in 1990 and after working in a variety of food settings, opened Cafe Roka in 1992.

    Cushing Street Bar & Restaurant
    Cushing Street Bar & Restaurant opened in October 1972 and is still operated by the original family owners. Portions of the main dining room and private dining rooms date back to the 1860s when Arizona was still a Territory.

    The oldest parts of the building feature original two foot thick walls made of adobe (mud and straw) which was a popular building material of the 1800s. An antique cut glass chandelier in the bar is from an old French mansion in Mexico City, as is the Art Nouveau statue of Cleopatra, which is our trademark. A tall display cabinet was used in 1880 as a legal bookcase in Hermosillo, Sonora. The beautiful Steinway piano is a centennial piano, made in 1876.
    Featuring weekly Jazz nights, Cushing Street is a great place to unwind and enjoy a good meal. Cushing Street Bar & Restaurant features comfortable garden patio dining in a very charming courtyard setting reminiscent of old Mexico.
    Dos Cabezas Wineworks
    Planted, harvested, and fermented in Arizona! Come try a glass!

    Dos Cabezas WineWorks is a family-owned and operated winery that challenges the perception that Arizona does not produce exceptional wines. Dos Cabezas WineWorks has been producing wines in Arizona since 1995. The winery was originally located on the 80 acre Dos Cabezas Vineyard near Willcox, AZ. Just after the harvest of 2006, winemaker Todd Bostock purchased the winery with the help of his wife Kelly and his parents Frank and Paula. The winery was moved to Sonoita, Arizona, close to the vineyard the family planted in Elgin in 2003.

    Our wine has been enjoyed at the White House, earned critical acclaim and grabbed international attention. Yes, we make great wine. And yes, it's made near the rolling hills of Southeastern Arizona where birds, bobcats and pronghorn antelope call home.

    Come down to our Dos Cabezas Tasting Room in Sonoita. It offers a relaxed yet inviting vibe where chats with the owners are as common as the great wine. Dos Cabezas wines are available in many fine Arizona restaurants and retail locations.
    Elvira's Restaurant
    Established in 1927 Elvira's Restaurant of Nogales, Mexico is now in Tubac, Arizona bringing you the best Mexican cuisine and award winning dishes! Come and enjoy our restaurant with its vibrant design.

    Chef Ruben Monroy, who has degrees in graphic arts and interior design, selected and purchased all the furnishings and wide-ranging blend of traditional and contemporary Mexican arts and crafts that adorn the bright and lively location during many trips throughout his native country.

    He painted the restaurant himself, with a series of electric blue walls, decorated with colorful dots. “I decided to change the whole design of the restaurant with a blend of traditional to fun and funky items. I want people to come and get a taste of the new and old Mexico, and experience not just the food, but the culture, the colors and the spirit,” he said.

    After he completed his studies in interior design and graphic arts, Monroy headed off for cooking school in Mexico City to become a chef. He creates all the recipes and does much of the cooking at the new location, his preference being for “more inventive cuisine.”
