It's all about the pie

Excellent pie. Need we say more? Nice variety of offerings as well. Everyone was very helpful. Good little stop.

Stopped here on our way back to Mesa from Dewey, did not know what to expect, but wow were we surprised. Picked up a couple of pieces of peach pie and a whole pecan pie and they were both heavenly. have not had this quality of pie since we lived in Wisconsin and used to get pies at the Norske... More

Coming back from four relaxing days in Sedona it was a no brainer to stop and eat at Rock Springs. I had the chili, a big bowl accompanied by a delicious cornbread muffin. Of course the finale was pie. My wife had the blueberry crumb and I had the banana creme. So many delicious choices makes the selection tough. We... More

We were on a day trip up to flagstaff for a hike! Thought we would fuel up at this cafe that is supposed to be an Arizona treasure. I have been here before but it hasn't been since I was little. Upon walking into the restaurant, we were asked by an unfriendly HOST if we were there for breakfast. He... More

For years, we drove past Rock Springs Cafe and always commented that we should stop there sometime; and I heard they have good pies. Well . . . . we finally stopped and Rock Springs Café has become our starting point for our day trips out of Phoenix. It is a great place to stop for a hearty, delicious breakfast... More

Some say location, location, location. I say consistency, consistency, consistency. Rock Springs has always been one of my favorite places to stop for breakfast when heading north from the Valley of the Sun. For years and years, Rock Spring's Breakfast Burger has been on the finest hamburgers you could get in all of AZ. I used to recommend this burger... More

We stopped by the bakery store to explore our options on pies...there was many choices, but one that stood up was the JD pecan pie. I did not need to sample or try it before buying it...I was sold. The pie gave us dessert/treat for a week (for two people). I like the twist of the JD...since it made the... More

If you are looking for great pie, Rock Springs Cafe is your place. However, the hostess is always disorganized and you're never quite sure if there is someone running things. So be prepared to stand around when you get there trying to figure out what is going on. But once you are finally seated, the experience gets better.

I was at first dazzled by the pie entrance! Planned on getting dessert after a meal. Prices high ,no specials available, big menu heavy foods, not great for light eaters. Traveling North for a day trip, stopped for brunch..food okay. Anticipation and hopes for great piece of pie....ordered a peach crumb, more crumb on top then peaches!

Friends had been b4 and raved but frankly, we didn't think it was that great. Menu is not that big. We had an order of the brisket and the baked catfish. Both were good but nothing GREAT. I didn't care for the bbq sauce on the brisket. We waited for a quite a while as this is a popular spot.... More
