This restaurant is very unfriendly the staff does not have class they treat you very disrespectful the food is mediocre and the hours are only to please The staff themselves. Do not go to this restaurant unless you want to be dissatisfied and your day ruined.

Second time driving through to Sedona. Love it! Great breakfast; excellent portions. Friendly atmosphere, even though the staff wear shirts that say, "Eat, Pay, And Get Out!" The place is cared for, clean, and comfortable.

The food is not only excellent but plentiful. Service is good and food is cooked to order. The turn around time from ordering to receiving the food is quick. Worth going.
