On our last morning in Sedona, we stopped by the Coffee Pot Restaurant – an iconic breakfast cafe along one of the main highways in town. Opened in the 1950’s, this little cafe still does a brisk business, in part because of its famous menu of 101 omelettes.
There really are a hundred and fifty different choices. My favorite? Jelly, Peanut Butter and Banana. You can see the whole list here.
The restaurant is named for one of the city’s famous red rock formations, of which there are many. You can see part of it here, over the top of the building – it looks like one of those old-fashioned coffee percolators:
The Coffee Pot Restaurant is cute, and it’s filled with lots of great Southwestern art wherever you look. The food is hearty and affordable – I had their Huevos Rancheros (ranch eggs) and they were fantastic.
Want to take something home with you to remember Sedona by? You can check out any of Sedona’s many great galleries – we’ll cover the Tlaquepaque shopping center in our next post. But if you just want a quick souvenir, stop by the Coffee Pot Restaurant’s gift store for something a little more affordable and kitschy. I found a cyte metal gecko hook that’s now hanging over my desk in our office.
The Coffee Pot Restaurant is a great little place to eat, hang out, and shop in Sedona. if you have the time, we recommend having breakfast here at least once while you’re in town!
