About
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.

Just found this restaurant while driving around in Sedona. It's been years since we visited Sedona, so when we arrived late afternoon, we didn't know where to have dinner. Found this restaurant just driving around and glad we did. Excellent menu selections for breakfast, lunch...and dinner. We decided to have Mexican Food. Food was outstanding. Being new to Sedona (at least for a few years) we asked our waitress for directions to a couple of the Christmas stores in Sedona. After placing our order, our waitress( Laycee) returned with (2) store locations, phone numbers and directions. You don't find someone very often, that goes out of there way to help customers. 5 STARS to our waitress Laycee!More

Our experience was wonderful. Everyone enjoyed the food and the portions were big. My son even said his burger was one of the best he’s had. Our waitress Laycee was extremely pleasant and helpful. Unfortunately , we only get to Sedona once a year, but...this is an excellent stop and we will return. Would definitely recommend!More

I have been to Sedona multiple times, and have been at cafe Jose’s a few times! But today, our server was Oren. Not only was he very attentive, he accommodated our specific requests without hesitation! Thank you for making our breakfast experience a great one!

This restaurant we ate at 5 years ago on our trip to Sedona and were very pleased with the great food (taste and large portions) and service(timely and knowledgeable). Things have not changed at this restaurant at all except for waitresses wearing masks. The food...portions are still very large(each plate covered in food completely) and the food is fresh and delicious. My family was again complimenting the chef to the waitress after our great tasting Mexican/American food that filled our void after hiking. There was also locals eating at the table next to us just like 5 years ago. It is nice to see some things have not changed with time. This is the best place in town for a large portioned meal for the family at a reasonable price. We definitely will be back here for a meal again next visit to Sedona.More

Our party of four stumbled across this gem on our last day of our visit to Sedona. The staff were all friendly and made us immediately feel at home. The large menu of items was hard to decide but we chose the ribeye steak dinner....What a treat! All of our food was excellent, along with the yeast rolls and crisp fresh salad.. The only thing lacking was the high price. What a treat to meet our Server, Michele. She went out of her way to make sure we were completely satisfied and was very cordial to us. We recommend this restaurant to everyone who is looking for a very enjoyable meal in Sedona!More

My wife and I have been there many times and we love it. Good food, nice folks. "Laycee" was our server last time and we only had 30 minutes to eat because we were trying to go see "Nope" which was awesome. Laycee made sure...that we got our food and were out in like 27 minutes. This is one of ourfavorite spots in Sedona.More

As a local, I have frequented Cafe Jose multiple times, their burgers are great, I have become addicted to the chicken fajita quesadilla as well. It is ginormous and I can never eat the whole thing, so I have great leftovers. Always great service when...I stop in, but I get takeout a lot to take back to work. Menu has a lot of great choices.More
