“Lots of Locals Eating Here............”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

This is located in the shopping center with the Safeway Market. It is small, and even when we were looking for it we had trouble finding it. It is located at the far end(away from town) of the Plaza at the very end. There is an extensive menu. The first time we visited it was for lunch, and seeing so many of Mexican descent in there, we both ordered Mexican food. I had a chicken taco salad that was super, and my partner had a beef enchilada, that was delicious. (Being from the East the Mexican food is not the best, so please keep that in mind!!) On the way out of the restaurant, I noticed that it had received awards for the wonderful breakfasts, so we were determined to have breakfast there---particularly when I learned that huevos rancheros are on special every day ($4.99) until 11AM!! So, back we went a little later in the trip. The huevos rancheros were wonderful and certainly a value!! Partner had the stuffed French Toast with berries, which came with eggs---too much to finish even with my help!! The value you got for your dollar in this restaurant was terrific. It's not a place for great ambiance, but the food is good, the place is clean, and I don't think you'll be disappointed!

“Delicious food, great service”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

I was in Sedona recently visiting a friend and her family. On the recommendation of her family, we stopped in at Cafe Jose for lunch. I had the Sedona burger. In one word: AMAZING. Our server, Renea, was so friendly and was the nicest person we met the entire time we were in Sedona. Everything was so good that we had to go back the next morning for breakfast. The service and food quality wasn't just a one-time thing. Renea was again wonderful and our breakfasts were cooked perfectly. You must eat here!

4 of us had breakfast. Very good food, great value. Most of the others were obviously locals, so you know it has good food at reasonable prices. Server was very friendly, teased us with little jokes. This was our second gooe experience.;

“Great experience for a nice casual meal”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

We were on vacation in Sedona for 2 days and we went to Cafe Jose one morning. We enjoyed the service and food so much that we went back again the next morning!
Not only was the food excellent, we especially liked the blueberry pancakes and omlettes, the service was also so great!
The waitors were friendly and always smiling. The food came quickly and the staff was constantly making sure that our experience there was a positive one!
I would definitely recommend stopping by there if you want a delicious casual meal while getting great service and a feel of Sedonas locals!
Rufino and Jorge were our waitors and they made our time at Cafe Jose that much more pleasent and worth while!
