Thanks to the local who recommended this café. The food was very good. Fast service. Price very reasonable. Our waiter Tyler was very attentive and friendly. The best place we have been so far.

We didn't expect much from this place but it was a really good meal. We had a nice waitress (Mariah I think?) who was really sweet and easy to talk to and checked on us often. The food was not healthy at all but we didnt expect it to be. Our sandwiches were delicious! Filled with bacon and avocado and... More

The cafe is in a retail center next to McDonalds and Safeway. The atmosphere is ok. The ding is pretty well decorated for a retail center location. The service was good, the servers nice. The food really very good.

5 of us stopped in for dinner and margarita's. Meals were good and plentiful. Lots of food to eat and it was delicious. Tacos, enchiladas, chips and hot sauce was good. No frozen margarita's though, just on the rocks. Service was quick and prices very reasonable.

A lot of variety choices of breakfast. We tried a Mexican breakfast here, and the food was excellent. The service is good, and there is no wait time. Prices are cheap.

We stopped in for a quick bite and had the nachos, and a beer. The plate of nachos was huge, the two of us could not finish it. Would go again, and recommend it to anyone who like Mexican food.

As a local, I have visited this restaurant many times over the years, but it had been quite a while since my last visit. We had breakfast here recently and it is pretty much as I remembered, although with a fresh coat of paint and general clean up. The menu has been freshened, but the prices and portions remain a...

Not really a 'cafe', this is a full-fledged restaurant, with a full menu and seating about 200 people. Of the 6 restaurants where I had dinner in Sedona, this was my favorite. Spacious, clean, airy, with good food, good service, modest pricing, but probably most of all, free of all that hyper BS Sedona chic. I had the salmon, pan-seared... More

I wish we would have just gone to Chipotle. Our two entrees totaled $30 (no drinks) and neither tasted good at all: so bland and flavorless. Definitely skip this place!

Came here as a guest of someone, so I couldn't complain about the service when it went bad (which was almost immediate). But I won't recommend this place. After we were seated, it took the waitress about 10 minutes to return to take our orders. During those 10 minutes, others came in and were seated AND their order taken! We... More

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.
