Food was good and service was great. Our food was brought out within 5-10 minutes of ordering. Prices were reasonable for the area. Very attentive wait staff.

The waiter and host were friendly, but almost everything else was a big disappointment. We ate Mexican food, and the chips were hard (not light and flaky) and the salsa lacked flavor. We ordered meals with green sauce, but they were served with red sauce. I ordered a beef taco, but received a chicken taco. The waiter resubmitted the order,... More

We appreciate the feedback about your experience at Café Jose. We must apologize for the mishap with your order. Usually our serving staff is much more on top of things-- but, alas, everyone has a bad day occasionally. This is something we will definitely discuss with our staff, however. as it is irritating when your order comes out wrong once,... More

I have reviewed this Restaurant a number of time over the years and the food and service was pretty good. This time my wife and I went for breakfast around 10am and the service was poor. Breakfast was barely warm. The place was not busy at all, so don't know why the service was poor this time. If the food... More

We apologize for your recent visit not being up to par. Slow service is very unusual for our restaurant, but we have been struggling a little with a couple new servers getting up to speed. Usually my most senior staff works in the morning, however. So, your experience is even more unusual than what would typically be expected in our... More

I eat at Café Jose about once a week. Everything is great, but I'm a huge fan of the cheeseburger and the tuna melt. Comfy, casual atmosphere with fast, friendly service. Breakfast is served all day. Portion size is great.

We were staying at the Hampton Inn down the road and wanted a quick casual meal. A staff member at the hotel recommended this place as a casual diner. The service was very good, and the food came out amazingly fast. We would go back.

My friends and I eat here every week. The food is always good and the staff is very friendly. There are lots of fancier places to eat in Sedona, but if your looking for the kind of place the locals go for a good meal, this is it!

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.
