I truly recommend everybody that goes to the South Rim gets the Ice Cream it is absolutely delicious and very fairly priced. That being said warning if you're fellow Brits a single scoop will be more than enough my partner and I both got double scoops and could not finish them. Their portions (as you will know) are much larger... More

We bought our lunch for going down the canyon which was not a great choice and the sandwich we did buy was of poor quality. I think they should have packs with essentials in for walking (like you are given at phantom ranch) including nuts, pretzels, dried fruit and most importantly the electrolyte drink. Bagels are also good.

Liked that the Café opened at 5:30am. We bought our food and took it back to our room to eat & enjoying the view. The breakfast burritos are large so they will serve two adults.

The service was great. The food was good too. Not too expensive considering it was right at the canyon.

Good food at fairly reasonable prices. Breakfast was our favorite. It was much cheaper than the El Tovar dining room with more everday type dishes.

The restaurants in this area were a little pricey, and we didn't really want to eat a big meal at noon, or take the time for a nice sit down meal. Also, being far from our car made toting a cooler inconvenient, esp when we were doing a lot of walking. So this little cafe had hot dogs & bratwurst... More

The service was good and they realised you wanted to get out and walk the Rim of the Canyon. The menu was excellent to choose from.
