The Perfect Breakfast Stop

We were in Cottonwood for two days and both days we chose Creama Cafe for breakfast. It opens at seven am so it was perfect for us because we were visiting from Houston so we were mentally still on the central time zone. The coffee is great and the breakfast sandwiches are even better. The cafe has... read more

Stop in on Main Street in Old Town Cottonwood for great imaginative food prepared to perfection and served with loving care. Save room for home made gelato.

We live within walking distance so we get here often. The little café has blossomed in the short time we've been here from being really good but cramped to bring outstanding with positive interior improvements. There is more indoor seating available, the outdoors area is very inviting and the kitchen is........ great. Gelato on your list? Don't go anywhere else.

This little coffee shop is 'hands down' the best place in Cottonwood. My family is from out state and we travel to Arizona yearly to visit more family and friends in the greater Phoenix area. We happened across Creme Cafe a few years back and it has now turned into a family tradition while staying around Sedona. Fabulous service and... More

great place for lunch. Nice sandwiches and homemade soup. Try the local wine, very good. Seating is away from the street traffic so its a great place to have a conversation without competition from cars going by

While meandering through Old Town Cottonwood, we stopped for lunch at the Crema Café and we're so glad we did! My husband had the beer-marinated bratwurst and I had the Verde turkey sandwich. Both were outstanding! There is a good selection of beer on tap as well. The patio had lots of character and we got great service from Erin... More

On our way home from Sedona, AZ we stopped by Crema Coffee at the suggestion of Erin, one of the servers. Wonderful quiche and latte, terrific service. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the history of the building written in the menu. We will be back to try one of their Bloody Mary's!

This is a fantastic little jewel. Don't order their Bloody Mary until after you have ordered your breakfast. If you have the Bloody Mary first you may be inclined to have another and calling that breakfast. Be sure to have their chili glazed bacon with whatever you order. Their food is perfect, and the staff just as good. A great... More

Our service took forever, granted we had a party of 9 people all ordering food however, the restaurant looked to be at about half capacity. 1st round of beverages (ordered before the meals were ordered like normal) took 15 minutes to arrive. Food took over 30 minutes minutes to arrive (one of the entrees had a bonus hair in it,... More
