Just happened to find this place on American Thanksgiving. The service was quick and friendly. WE were impressed with how fresh and tastey all over food was. The tortillas are what really made the quesadellas so good. ...fresh and homemade!!!

The service was spotty; slow and a little hard to get attention. The food was nothing special. The prices were good and the variety of food might be appealing.

This is an inexpensive restaurant with decent food and good service. The menu varies from down home american to decent mexican. All of it fresh but nothing fancy or especially wonderful. Good place for a quick, less expensive dinner.

This place is my favorite still in Sedona when it comes to breakfast. The prices are good and the portions generous. Service is always timely and the waiters and waitresses are always polite. Right behind the mcd's in the Safeway plaza.

Southern restaurant, staff will help you through the extensive menu, great food. Located near Safeway, so easy to overlook as a prospect for eating location.

OK, need a place in Sedona for a regular breakfast. Not some mystic or health food breakfast. This is the place. Had breakfast here twice. Diffidently better than the Coffee Pot. Great egg dishes and pancakes. We will come back when we are in Sedona...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.

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.
