Wife and I visit Sedona twice a year and always struggle when trying to think about where to go for breakfast, not anymore. Our choice will be Cafe Jose going forward! Food was what you expect for breakfast and then some. Good quantity, good quality and at a more than reasonable price. So if you would rather not "waste your... More

This place is rated pretty well, but is in a shopping center with a broad menu. It seems quite odd-- meatloaf, cut turkey, tacos and tamales but it works. We went because it was SO hard to get dinner reservations (or not wait 1.5 hours!) to eat on a Saturday in Sedona. This was no line and the ratings were... More

I love some good breakfast food and Cafe Jose delivered! The breakfast menu is available all day. So for lunch, I ordered the Rio Grande omelet and it was delicious. Home fries were good and the biscuit was big and yummy. Would definitely recommend this restaurant! A little on the pricer side. I substituted egg whites and ordered a drink... More

The food is plentiful and good. Fast friendly service. A wide variety of menu items. My husband's favorite is the ham steak (huge) and eggs.

We stopped in here for lunch one day. It was the best meal we had while we were in Sedona. My husband had fajitas and I had the special that was something with shrimp in it. I don't remember what it was called but the shrimp were huge and the meal was more than I could eat. It might be... More

Four of us had lunch at this little gem, recommended by our motel concierge as a place locals frequent. They are often some of the best. This "no frills" cafe was a find. Three of the four of us opted for burgers, each one a different offering. The mushroom burger got the best of the day.

My wife found this gem of a diner. It was so good we went there twice on our trip! Great coffee, get the chorizo and eggs and make your own burrito. The green salsa was great as well. Make this a breakfast stop in Sedona!

Don't know if it's becoming a tradition, but my wife and I now stop into Cafe Jose for breakfast every time we visit Sedona. Cafe Jose is located in the Safeway shopping plaza on AZ-89A. I ordered a Breakfast Burrito and my wife ordered Huevos Rancheros, along with an order of pancakes, which we split. I'm pretty sure we ordered... More

This place is sort of hidden in a strip mall. Once inside you are seated and have servers assisting you immediately. There is a variety of foods available for breakfast, American and Mexican. The interior is clean and feels homey.

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.
