We discovered Jose’s by chance, and have gone there several times since, as it has great tasting food at very reasonable non-Sedona prices. The omelettes are the fluffiest and consistently so. They also make great fajitas and a very smooth and tasty guacamole. The service...More

Had breakfast here 3 mornings, and all were good. Service staff very attentive, and you can make changes to menu items without additional charges. Food is tasty and very reasonably priced. Atmosphere is more relaxed than the business of The Coffee Pot restaurant. Enjoy!

A limited menu with tex mex options and random medley of american favorites. Portions were large but the flavor was average. I wouldn't say this is a Mexican restaurant so if you are looking for authentic look elsewhere. Not horrible and it's pretty affordable.

I really didn't pay attention to that because we don't have any small children and we didn't have any with us. Perhaps you can check out their menu, if it's online, to see if they have a children's menu.

Despite the name, Cafe Jose serves good old-fashioned home style cooking. It is a classic American diner which also happens to serve good Mexican food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served all day. Cafe Jose is a favorite spot for local residents. It has won the local award for the past several years for "Best Home Cooking," "Best Breakfast," "Best Family Dining." "Friendliest Wait Staff," and "Best Overall Bargain." The food is not fancy, but it is tasty and served with a smile. The portions are large, but meals are priced to fit anyone's budget.
