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 decade for "Best Home Cooking," "Best Breakfast," "Best Family Dining." "Friendliest Wait Staff," and "Best Overall Bargain." The food is not fancy, but it is well-prepared, tasty and served with a smile. The portions are large, but meals are priced to fit anyone's budget.

Once again I will say the Best thing they have on their menu is the Club sandwich. Ive tried the fish fry and its ok now Ive had the Philly cheese steak and its also sub par. The steak was dry and not overly flavorful...and the overall sandwich was dry. So this time its an average rating for Joses because its just NOT the Club man. NOTHING on their menu beats it!!!!More

My family found Cafe Jose when we had a Tex-Mex craving for dinner while visiting Sedona. I was a little apprehensive when I saw burgers, meatloaf, spaghetti, etc on the menu as well. The burritos, fajitas, and quesadillas that we ordered were all terrific. The...portions were huge and the service was attentive. Have no fears with Cafe Jose!More

Service was exceptional, very nice server, and attentive. Salsa (red) had decent heat but great flavor, salsa verde had more heat, and also great flavor. Wife loved the Torta, I thought the Carne Asada Quesadilla was good, not great, but good. We didn't return only...due to time in Sedona, but would not hesitate to visit again on future trip.More

This place was an awesome discovery… Had gone to Coffee Pot a couple days before and it was good but with a long wait on our return a couple of days later we decided to try this place out and found out it was better!!...especially with hostess/waitress Colleen! Would highly recommend for quality without the wait!More

We stopped off well in Sedona and had a delicious healthy lunch at Café José. From the Caesar chicken salad to the field tea and chimichanga Arnel was fantastic. The service staff throughout the entire restaurant was so kind and accommodating. I would highly highly...recommend this place.More

I really didn't pay attention to that because we don't have any small children and we didn't have any with us. Perhaps you can check out their menu, if it's online, to see if they have a children's menu.
