Stopped here after A Snow Canyon visit from a friends recommendation and did not disappoint. Plenty of outdoor seating, no wait time, and the interior was real cute too. Nice coffee shop with IPAs available, our server was on point. Food was affordable and very...well prepared. Everyone in our party enjoyed our meals and the cookies were so good! Even saw a couple roadrunners outside while we were dining! Would come here again.More

Our family of six has many different likes and tastes, but we all found something more than yummy at Xetava. From gourmet burgers to the chilled lemonades, this unique, fun cafe was a delight! A super cute little indoor eating environment as well.

When you first arrive at Kayenta Art Village you are just thunder struck. It is so absolutely jaw dropping beautiful. There is also a lot of positive energy in the area and happiness just seeps into you. As soon as my brother and I got...out of the car we were greeted by a flock of Quail. So fluid, graceful, and beautiful. The structures at Kayenta are designed to blend into the landscape. It is an amazing complex. The Xetava Gardens Cafe has both indoor and outdoor seating. We wanted to sit outdoors. We were escorted to our table and were greeted by a most curious Roadrunner bird. They are just amazing and as fast as the cartoon implies. We both ordered the Gyro Salad and I must say it was probably the best salad I have ever eaten. It was a large plate of fresh organic greens, Avocado, Cucumber, Feta Cheese, dill crema, and toasted pita bread with an outstanding dressing. Service was tremendous and there iced lemonade with fresh mint leaves in it was the most refreshing life giving beverage I have ever had. This would be the place I would have my favorite Armenian Actress and Singer eat at if they were to visit America. They then could go over to the Tuacahn Center for the Arts to perform. Fantastic restaurant.More

We lunched here as an after thought and based on recommendations from both art gallery personal and a patron at the Coyote Gulch Art Village. A café full of light and art gracing the walls. We enjoyed & shared Italian Quesadilla (the days special) and...Roasted Brussel Sprout with a Chia Latte and cocoa Supreme. Weird paring but the day was very cold and windy. All excellent. The waiter was engaging and service was efficient. The next time we visit it will be for the café first and art galleries second. All set-in beautiful landscape of the red rock cliffs of southern Utah.More

This place is special. Tucked into Kayenta and surrounded by galleries. Get on the list when you get there and they will page you when your table is ready. Interesting menu. All good. We have to go here every few months for sure.

We were wandering through the galleries at Kayenta Village and planned to have lunch at the cafe. sat outside on the patio in the southern Utah scenery and had excellent lunches for all 6 of us. The menu is quite varied and includes full enters...as well as appetizers and lunch fare. Service was friendly and attentive and the food was excellent with good portions. Well worth a visit to the cafe and the galleries.More
