“Average at best”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

The service was slow and perfunctory whilst the food was OK....what took the biscuit was when the bill arrived with a 20% tip added automatically! It certainly wasn't worth that.

We tip between 15 and 25% when the food and service justify it - this certainly fell way below warranting 15%.

Avoid if you can - apparently the upsatirs "brewhouse" cafe/restaurant is better, also with open air seating.

“Good food but...”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

The service and food was very good but we couldn't get past the flies present on the patio. We've eaten here in past Sedona trips and never had a 'fly' problem, maybe it was just the time of year with the rainy season. The food and service alone would rank higher.

“Cake to die for”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

My wife.. a chocolate snob, and I popped in to get a little dessert. We were leaning towards the lemon cheese cake but ultimately settled on a dark chocolate cake with a layer of light chocolate moose and a layer of whipped cream. OMG.... as my wife put it.... definitely worth the calories!

“Beauty and relaxing”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

The garden in which this cafe' is located is very relaxing and secluded. The food is very good but portion size is not that big. If you want a light lunch this is a very good choice.

“Excellent food and nice outdoor dining”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed a late lunch on the patio and would definitely come here again. Our only regret was not saving room for dessert. The menu was diverse and the food was very good. Thanks for a wonderful time!
