We've gone to Cafe Jose now for several years and always find the food delicious, filling and reasonably priced. When we got to know our favorite server, Jill, during our visits this year, we hit on a perfect combination of food and great service. (The breakfast scramble is the bomb, BTW.) Jill is there every Sunday waiting tables and other... More

Let's say the restaurant was half full. It was interesting watching all the staff running around, and some customers were being waited on, but our particular waiter walked by us 4 times with no acknowledgement of our existence. After 15 minutes, I walked up to the kitchen door and asked for our wait staff, and he said, "I'll be right... More

This cafe serves the all American Breakfast foods, as well as Mexican American style breakfast meals. I loved the two cheese enchiladas with scrambled egg whites and black beans. What I selected was an upgrade of a couple of dollars. Usually you get refried beans and eggs the way you want. Corn tortillas included. A delicious red pepper enchilada sauce... More

We discovered Cafe Jose our first evening in town. We were told this is a local restaurant and had good food. It was reasonable and delicious. The service was very friendly. We were told about the Golden Goose and went there the next night - more expensive, very good food, nice fire place - more romantic. We'll be happy to... More
