This local cafe was recommended by a few folks for good food at low prices. The bad part is they close at 8:00 and you really need to arrive by 7:30. I had the fried chicken special and the chicken was tasty but dry. My...More

Many of the restaurants in Sedona are way overpriced, so Cafe Jose was a welcomed find. The food was good and was reasonably priced. We ate here twice during our stay in Sedona and were very happy the food, the prices, and the service.

The atmosphere was very friendly. Our waiter (Angel) was efficient and attentive to all of our request. The cook was also efficient - the food was good and it arrived at our table quickly.

This more than satisfied kids 7-20 and both parents. Four entrees (two seafood) and salsa/guac/chips for under $50, a good bit less than most other options. Portions were generous but not overwhelming and service was great, though it probably helps a lot of you speak...More

The food wasn't spectacular, but we were quite pleased with our experience here! I had a lovely veggie burger, and my family enjoyed their meat dishes. And (most importantly for some) we payed almost nothing! Enjoy.

Debbie and her crew at Cafe Jose provided our entire family with a yummy Mexican food feast for Christmas dinner. There were plenty of enchiladas, chimis and taquitos plus rice to fill everyone up, some went back for seconds and we had leftovers too! Made...More

I really didn't pay attention to that because we don't have any small children and we didn't have any with us. Perhaps you can check out their menu, if it's online, to see if they have a children's menu.

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.
