I have driven by this small restaurant on Main Street Cottonwood for many months. Housed in a 1920s house which originally was located in Jerome, the restaurant looks like the restaurants you find on the side streets of Key West, Florida. Last Saturday night after a hot hike at Dead Horse Ranch State Park, my wife and I stopped at Abbie's in search of a cold drink and a meal. The indoor decor is calming and there are beautiful fresh flowers on the tables. We ordered cold and well made gin and tonics while looking at the menu. All the wines served at Abbie's are made from grapes grown in Arizona. Having drunk some astonishing awful Arizona wines, I consulted with the staff who pointed me to a lovely, crisp, dry Pillsbury Pinot Gris. Dinner began with a cold potato, leek and celery root soup, and then we sampled some fettuccine and a simply wonderful polenta cake with pesto and roast cherry tomatoes. Don't miss dessert. We shared lemon pound cake browned and served with fresh strawberry sauce and a flourless chocolate cake. Dinner at Abbie's was one of the best meals we have eaten in the Verde Valley.
If you are ever in Cottonwood do not miss eating here. If you in Sedona drive the 20 minutes to Cottonwood and eat at Abbie's.
