Delicious food and great atmosphere!! I had the brisket burrito and it was awesome!! We sat at the community table and met some very nice, new homeowners in Sedona. They had visited before and obviously fell in love with the city to move there 😎

We live in Sedona and receive many visitors into our home each year. They always love the unique southwestern flavors offered at the Elote Cafe. One special treat is the Elote appetizer that you should try--everyone loves it and they are know for this dish.

This place was a great spot for a casual, southwestern meal. They do not take reservations but we came at 7:00 on a weeknight in September and were seated right away. I'm sure the weekends get crazy. The food was very good and plenty of...More
