Welcome to Desert Rain Café

Contemporary Tohono O'odham Cuisine

Check out our upcoming special events....

Desert Rain Café is a social enterprise of

Tohono O'odham Community Action.

Please visit our parent organization....


Traditional…  Each dish contains at least one traditional Tohono O'odham food such as cholla buds, tepary beans or saguaro fruit syrup.  Sometimes we prepare them as our people have for countless generations and sometimes in new ways.  Either way, it is done with the utmost respect for the foods that I’itoi – our Elder Brother – provided to sustain the People of the Desert. 


Delicious…  The flavors of the desert are rich and wonderful. We feature them in ways that will satisfy and excite your palette. If you are not happy with your meal, please let us know so we can make it right!


Healthy… Traditional foods are healthy foods. They help regulate blood sugar levels and control diabetes. We use syrup from the agave as our sweetener, mesquite flour in our baked goods and olive oil for cooking.
