We stopped in for breakfast after having a very delightful dinner the night before. The choices were plentiful and the size of the portions were huge.

My son and I are celiac, and we had a great experience here. We had packed a GF meal, and ended up having it available the next day as we found the Cafe great.

We've purchased a meal as a package deal for touring the Grand Canyon. The buffet lunch was excellent. The selection of meals were excellent: the salads, main course, the desserts, and the drinks. Well prepared and tasty.

Dinner and breakfast were very good. Breakfast buffet was good according to my daughter and husband. My other daughter had the Arizona eggs benedict which was very good. I had the huevos rancheros that was excellent. For dinner, we had north rim chicken wings, shrimp cocktail, and bright angel chicken. It was all good.

Thank Shelley S
