We are a local retired couple and have been here many times. The owners really know their stuff! The service is fast and efficient. The food comes quickly and is very tasty. Additional servers keep your coffee or other drinks replenished. It is sort of a local best kept secret but obviously not so secret anymore as the only downside is that it has become very popular and thus busy. Nevertheless, I don't know how they do it, but despite being a very busy place, and not that large as to square footage, we've seldom had to wait any time at all or if so only a few minutes.
The owner is often on hand to personally welcome his customers and don't be surprised if he is not checking from time to time to see if everything is going well and if not, he'll make it right! 5 stars.

Delicious breakfast, we had "Pepe's Omelette" With bacon, avocado, cheese etc, and were not disappointed. All the staff were incredible.

My husband and I took a chance and stopped in for breakfast one morning before visiting Old Town. What a great place! Service was amazing. Food was fabulous! So good we went back another day from Sedona. We were greeted and seated immediately upon entering the restuarant. Everyone was so friendly and smiling You could tell it is a place where locals come often. The staff helped some elderly people out of their chair more than once - like they knew what do to. It was so refreshing. The food was fresh and plentiful. We even ordered chips and salsa with our breakfast the second time and didn't leave a one. All I can say is be patient finding a parking place.

My wife and I were vacationing in Sedona for the week, and decided to take the short drive down to Pepe's in Cottonwood for breakfast. This has to be the best breakfast place in the entire area! So good that we went there a second time. All of the food is outstanding, and the wait staff is super friendly and attentive, all of them with a big smile on their faces the entire time we were there. Among the items we enjoyed were corned beef hash and eggs, huevos rancheros, and the "house breakfast" which was so much food I couldn't eat it all (and I'm a big eater). And their prices are really low considering the amount of food you get. If you get there before 10:00am they also have early bird specials. Our first trip, we got out of there for under $20 total for the two of us, which included coffee and juice. The second trip was only $25.

Don't listen to the hype about Crema Kraft Kitchen. That place was awful and you should steer clear. THIS is the place to come for breakfast! If we ever revisit the area, we'll probably come here for breakfast every day. 8^)

Thanks for a terrific experience!
