Phoenix vegetarian restaurant The Coronado will move to Tuck Shop spot

Coronado neighborhood favorite Tuck Shop has been dark for months, but now it’s clear the restaurant won’t be reopening.

Tuck Shop was located at the southeast corner of 12th and Oak streets near downtown Phoenix. The neighborhood spot had been open for more than ten years and was known for its cozy atmosphere and modern American food.

The Coronado, a vegan and vegetarian cafe located just a few blocks away on 7th Street and Monte Vista Road, will take over the space in May. 

In the past year, The Coronado battled through challenges ranging from the coronavirus pandemic to an fire started by a delivery truck that knocked out the electrical panel for the building. Now, the restaurant will move into a more spacious building to serve an expanded version of its menu of vegetarian tacos, sandwiches and baked goods.
