I personally love the breakfast here. The restaurant has great pancakes and breakfast burritos (my personal favorites). The coffee is great and they have a dedicated coffee shop on main street if you are a coffee lover.

It's really difficult to keep me out of Cottonwood - the drinks are amazing, the people are friendly and the food is delicious. I had the grilled cheese and it was AMAZING!
