  • Breakfast was good (omelette and some good coffee) so we came back for lunch after hiking Cathedral canyon. Grilled fish tacos were spot on and filling. Competes w the best fish tacos I've had in Arizona. Wife had the veggie burger and I saw two thumbs up (mouth to full to talk.) Also a couple good beers on tap and friendly service to top it all off!
  • We only stopped to eat as we headed toward the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, but the food was actually pretty good. Standard American fare, but the Vermillion Cliffs as a backdrop made the good taste better.
  • Great stop to break up the drive. I don't drive a Tesla but they have chargers!
  • Great location, good food, good service. Thanks cliff dwellers!
  • Oasis in a vast wasteland.. motel was clean, quiet, and very inviting, Cafe is absolutely one of the best, relaxing spots I have ever spent an evening at. great food, cold drinks, and beautiful scenery. beautiful place to set and watch the sun go down over the mesa!
