A generous 'AVERAGE' is given only because our Chicken Salad Croissant sandwich was very good, plus the nice view from our outside table. Obviously food is the most important thing. An extremely long wait time was experienced and we figured it was Covid related but...it turns out the computers were giving them problems. Whatever happened to old fashioned writing down an order and giving it to the cook?? That's scary that they can not function. Wow!! A hefty price of $4 each for Boylan soda was charged along with a credit card charge. Really? We travelled 5,600 miles and nearly 3 weeks during our southwest vacation without experiencing this charge elsewhere. What an unfriendly unnecessary customer charge with no verbal warning. If it was on the menu we sure missed it and who the heck would look for something like that?More

The wait was very long (we were told 20 minutes and it was more like 45) but I'm sure that's because they have to follow social distancing guidelines and can't seat as many folks. I really appreciated the vegan options. The food was absolutely amazing....Obviously fresh, quality ingredients and the preparation/seasoning was perfect. I had the vegan tofu scramble and it was the best I've ever had. My husband said the same thing about the breakfast burrito.More

We sat on the patio, enjoying the scenic surroundings and the delicious food. This made for a great visit to Tlaquepaque, which is so beautifully done, with very high-quality merchandise. I highly recommend.

Food was great, but a little pricy. We ordered a salad and two sandwiches and the total came to $60.00. I also wasn’t a fan of having to scan the outside window to order out when there were capable people inside to take my order.

Thank you for the review, but you may have us confused with a different restaurant. We don't have a window to order food from, so let us know if we are missing something.

Justin, our server, was really knowledgeable and helpful. I am Vegan. He suggested swapping fried tofu for eggs and vegan sausage for chorizo in their Huevos Rancheros and it was delicious. It was our first stop in Sedona and Justin was more than helpful. He...gave us great suggestions for things to see and do. 5 stars!More

When we asked the hostess how long a wait her curt answer was “You’ll get in before breakfast is over”. Which really wasn’t that helpful so we asked how many minutes she said 25. We waited and it wasn’t much longer than 25 and we...were seated. Prior to that we had looked at the menu online and found out what we were going to order so we wouldn’t take a lot of time. There were 4 of us. We were seated at 10:40, we were served water promptly and the server came promptly after that and we gave her our order. We then proceeded to wait for 45 more minutes to get our breakfast. The waitress came by once and apologized and said she would check on our order. She came by and said the kitchen was “backed up” and would be getting to our order. Keep in mind that we were at the end of the breakfast crowd, the hostess announced she wasn’t seating anyone else until the lunch shift. There were not that many people who needed to be served breakfast. The waitress came back again and said our order was getting plated right now. When it finally came it was lukewarm at best. Two of us asked for eggs to be over medium, which the waitress said would not have runny whites (we did not want runny whites) the eggs were very runny and not prepared as we specified. Our waitress did a great job but the rest of the staff didn’t.More

We were seated outside quickly and our meals came quickly. Very kind and attentive waitstaff took good care of our party of 6. I enjoyed the Corn Chowder and the Secret Ceaser Salad. Just enough for a light meal. Well done, Secret Garden, thank you!

We didn't make any but brunch can be crowded so, if it's a large party, you may have to.

So sorry. I did not get notification. The blankets are from the Manzanita market. They are Mexican but of a better quality that some of the stores. Glad you enjoyed!
