Description: Despite the name, Cafe Jose serves good old-fashioned home style cooking. It is a classic American diner which also happens to serve good Mexican food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served all day. Cafe Jose is a favorite spot for local residents. It has won the local award for the past several years for "Best Home Cooking," "Best Breakfast," "Best Family Dining." "Friendliest Wait Staff," and "Best Overall Bargain." The food is not fancy, but it is tasty and served with a smile. The portions are large, but meals are priced to fit anyone's budget.

“Underated great little spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

Stayed a week in Sedona and the owner of our rental recommended Cafe Jose. Went there for breakfast on a Sunday morning and we were amazed that the only people there were some local law enforcement and a few others. Had a great meal at very reasonable prices and quick service. I had a breakfast quesidilla consisting of scrambled eggs, ham, mexican cheese on a grilled tortilla. Very good! The server asked if we wanted Salsa and that enhanced the meal ever more. Hubby had an open faced egg/bean/tortilla, also good but thought mine was better.
Sorry we only got to go there once as it was definitely one of the best priced breakfast places.
Our server was outstanding.

“Worth the price; inexpensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Great for simply home made foods. Service was ok but a bit slow. More like diner food, but you get what you pay for. I'd go again.

“Just Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

The vibe is more like a diner than a restaurant - very casual and certainly not fancy. But if you want really good food at reasonable prices, this is your place. Two of us had Mexican entrees and they were both excellent (shrimp quesadilla and seafood enchiladas). The others had the black bean burger (wonderful) and the fried chicken special (good but not great). They do have a bar if you desire a beer or cocktail with your meal. Service is prompt and friendly with quick refills of your ice tea or water glasses.

“Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

I didn't hate my experience here but I just wasn't wowed. The food & service were just ok in my opinion. I could be wrong but the food all tasted like it was mass produced or from a can. I went early and there was no crowd but I still needed to stand and wait a few minutes to pay my bill.
