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

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!

One of our favorite servers is Laycee. She always greats us with a big smile and makes sure that we have a... More

We enjoyed the home style cooking and attentive service. The home made albondogas soup was excellent as was the liver and onions. The corn bread was so good we let it be desert. We are coming back. And we hope to get our server "Anai" again next time.

This is more of a diner than a Mexican restaurant. Plenty of food. Staff wasn't over friendly but they weren't rude either. We wanted some really good Mexican and I thought with the other reviews we were heading to the right place. We wouldn't go again. It looks like breakfast is what you want to go here to eat.

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.
