Worth stopping by

I went to Josephine's for breakfast, and the food was great there. The servers are a bit slow but accommodating. I would return again.

After a jaunt over to play in snow at snowbowl, we warmed up in the cozy ambiance of Josephine's for lunch. Southwestern Bean and Quinoa Garden Burger is a must, has a light zip and pairs well with a mimosa! The staff is very friendly and welcoming. We love the intimate experience you feel when dining here. Virtually everything on... More

Best Brunch (weekends only) in town for around $10 - delightful breakfast or lunch fare that you just can't wrong with in a historic home and garden setting. Homemade Josephine's berry jam, tasty unique variations of eggs benedict, $5 Mimosas or Bloody Mary's, Flagstaff hearty meat-hash skillet, or late morning try their Fried Green Tomato Turkey sandwich, big enough to...

Third time for us visiting Flagstaff Thanksgiving week and Josephine's is a must for that special dinner. Made reservation as soon as we committed to the week and got the time we wanted. This could be our favorite meal of the year no matter where we travel. This time we brought our 10 month old granddaughter and the staff treated... More

Another couple and ourselves when to Josephine's on Thanksgiving and were worried about them handling the larger number. Well, we got there at 3:00 PM and it had already been open for two hours and there was a crowd inside and outside. However we only waited 15 minutes. We were pleased at the close to reservation time with all those... More

We love Josephine's! We've spent several holidays celebrating here, including Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Years Eve. The food is amazing as is the ambiance, assuming you're not seated in the line of fire. The service is up to par for Flagstaff standards, don't be in a hurry or show up starving and you'll be fine. I... More

Renovated historic home. Nice ambience. Great service. Unique menu. We started off with an appetizer of fried green tomatoes and finished with a warm peach crisp a la mode which we shared among 3 people. One of us had the Arizona Tenderloin Medallions and the other two had Chicken Pomodoro. The 3 of us shared a house salad. Marc was... More

We had the soup --artichoke and tomato, the Korean beef and potatoe, calamari and arugula salad. Everything was delicious. Great service. Nice ambiance. Just lovely overall experience and nit too expensive.

Good food. Nice waitstaff. We got here at 5:15 and even with dozens of comfortable tables open for two inside, we were relegated to the outside (with plastic walls) porch with a less-than-adequate heater...Flagstaff is getting cold at the end of Oct...or we could eat at the bar (doesn't say intimate dinner to me) or at a "high-top table" where...

We like to sit outside when possible. The traffic noise is okay. They have a nice menu. We have eaten here on several occasions and have always enjoyed ourselves. Great choices for sandwiches at lunch time. Could use a little sprucing up around the outside of the building.
