A few years ago we stumbled across this restaurant and it has become a ritual to our Florida vacation. The food is outstanding. This year we met Curt one of the best waiters I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, knowledgeable about the menu and venue and quite a character. This will continue to be one of our vacation...

Got a recommendation for this place from an old server there. Boy was she spot on. Atmosphere eclectic, fun and airy. Sat outside as it was our last day before leaving to go back home to the cold. Service excellent. The bloody Mary's were relaxing. The salmon entree was perfectly cooked with 2 great vegetables. Had to try the banana... More

Places comes and go in dade city but Kafe Kokopelli always delivers great food with a new twist. Eggplant parm was great and the salad was refreshing, we tried the goat cheese cake and it was tangy and superb. Decor is funky and eclectic.

Food was very good (a little on the too much salt) and portion size huge. Would definitely recommend and revisit if we are in the area.

Recently stopped here for a little refreshment while touring the delightful shoppes in Dade City. Very different in decor, it is well supplied with good food and welcoming service.

The décor is over the top tacky but that is all part of the charm. The food is amazing. Having tried practically every dish on the menu, I can honestly say that no matter what you choose, you won't be disappointed. The owner/host is very sweet and accommodating. A definite jewel in Dade City's crown.

We went to this restaurant last year for Mother's Day and it was great! Decided to have our family gather there today, and I don't know if we will go back. My husband and I didn't want to darken our visit with negativity, but was very disappointed in our meals. Over $200. I ordered the Filet Mignon which came with... More

First, thanks for coming back a second time. You are 100% right to feel the way you do. My only hope is you'll give us another chance. Our sincere apologies for the food quality but more so the poor service. It would be helpful if you could let me know the date and time you were in so we can... More

Located in Historic Downtown Dade City Florida, Kafe Kokopelli resides in a near 100 year old red-brick, vine covered building that was constructed in 1919. Originally built as a Model-T Ford Sales and Service center it was home to the local Ford dealers until the mid 1970's. Saved a few months from demolition, the building was restored and converted to house what is now Kafe Kokopelli, a favorite of locals and visitors from all over the country.
