My wife & I finally made our way to The Grotto for Sunday brunch. Great ambiance being tucked away off Cave Creek Rd. We placed our order and were served by a very pleasant staff member. Delicious chicken salad and pulled pork sandwich. We plan...More

Perhaps a side effect of staying with family who eat poorly, I begged for a fresh salad today. I had the strawberry and feta salad with grilled chicken, and it was lovely. Crisp romaine, fresh strawberries, and a light vinaigrette. The grilled chicken was nicely...More

You walk up to the counter, order food, and they bring it to your table when it is ready. Very nice outside seating area in addition to inside seating. A number of good choices for lunch.

Looked for a restaurant that could host about 25 travelers for breakfast and found this one. Each meal was delicious and enough walking around room so family and friends could mingle.

Super nice staff and yummy sandwich. Comfortable eating inside or out Order at the counter and food delivered to your table. The atmosphere was casual and cheerful without the overly self conscious thematic cliches that can detract.

The Grotto Café opened its doors November of 2011 and is a family owned business. We serve award winning locally roasted organic coffee from the Roastery of Cave Creek right here in town, fresh bagel & pastries along with breakfast & lunch. We also have a liquor license to complement our food and atmosphere. Here at the Grotto Café we have one of the largest outdoor patio areas in all of Cave Creek. We also have plenty of indoor seating to accommodate guests all year. We've built a reputation for being a local hot spot for locals and new guests of all ages. We take a tremendous amount of pride in what we do and would love the opportunity to serve you soon!
