Tucson restaurants close for summer 2022

Summer holidays are not just for students

While warmer days in the summer mean “ramp-up time” for restaurants in many cities, people in the industry here in Tucson are used to the opposite. As students and snowbirds go on sabbaticals, many restaurant owners have become accustomed to following suit, closing shop for days to months.

Whether it’s giving their teams time to freshen up or using the weather to freshen up their space, we thought it would be great to spread the word to those we know and invite you to use their summer vacation as an extra excuse to try something new.

Keep in mind that some of these dates are subject to change.

Cafe Past

415 N. 4th Ave.

The Café Passe team beckoned us “so long” for the summer. With plans to improve the kitchen and bar (hint hint?), we look forward to their return in the fall.

77 W. Washington St.

There’s no exact date when the downtown store will open, but they plan to welcome noodle lovers in the fall. Fortunately, their other concept, Noodies, is here to hold you over until then.

Ceres is closed for the summer, but our partner restaurant @noodiestucson will stay open all summer with the homemade pastas and sauces you love and more. And, of course, rotating soft serve ice cream. Noodies is open Thursday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Monday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Indoor and outdoor seating, fast and relaxed environment, and online ordering!
