“Wonderful Lunch Spot”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Tucked in a lovely area, great lunch spot. Down home cooking and friendly atmosphere. We were there in January so outside seating was not an option. It is available though. Constantly busy when were there well past lunch hour.

“Food Good. Not much indoor seating in winter.”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

This listing should note that this cafe is in Tlaquepaque. This cafe has limited indoor seating--which can be a problem in winter. People did eat outside and blankets were provided for extra warmth--but with a temperature in the 30's, it could be too chilly for many. Two of us had the chicken salad on greens which had generous portions and was very tasty. Several groups came in then walked out before ordering while we were there. My guess is either choice of menu items or item prices (there was indoor seating available at the time). Though probably not pricey by Sedona standards,$10-12 for salads and sandwiches may be more than some are willing to spend. We ate inside and were exposed to the twentysomething staff making lots of personal small talk and even worse, disparaging comments about customers, within earshot. Service was prompt and courteous (when staff were directly speaking to us).

“Love food”
Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Food mediocre, service not bad, but restaurant very disorganized. We were ignored for a long period of time, and were seated by a bunch of cardboard boxes. Compared to other eating experiences in Sedona - this was very disappointing.

“Great place for light breakfast”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

This was close to our motel, beautiful garden atmosphere. Food was very good - good coffee for sure, I had a muffin which was very tasty & fruit salad which was ok, not great, my spouse had a full breakfast which he enjoyed. Staff were cheerful & efficient. We went back for coffee & muffin couple days later before we left Sedona.

“Great eats!”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Four of us had lunch here and we all really enjoyed our selections. I had the hummus pizza and it was delicious! Other items ordered were tri-tip sandwich, veggie burger, chicken salad sandwich all of which were super tasty. Waitstaff was friendly and effecient. We asked some locals where to eat and we were glad that this place was recommended.
