Named after the famous Coffee Pot Rock Formation, this Sedona restaurant features an old Hollywood history that dates back to the 1950s. Due to its stunning desert landscape, Red Rock Country was a prime filming location for Spaghetti Westerns and commercials featuring the “Old West.” Therefore, in between countless cinematic scenes, many Tinseltown stars, including Elvis Presley, frequented the restaurant to refuel for their next golden age take. He, in fact, is personally responsible for creating the Omelette # 101 which is filled with peanut butter, jelly, and banana – breakfast fit for a KING!

Quite remarkably, they have been awarded “Best Breakfast” and “Best Overall Bargain” year after year by their surrounding community.
Oh, and yes, there is a full bar with beer, wine, and cocktails – you’re welcome.
You might never run into a better donut shop in your life. Within Sedona’s early morning dessert sanctuary, one can find the Chocolate Oreo, a chocolate cake donut dipped in vanilla frosting and topped with broken oreo pieces over drizzled Oreo filling. Then, there’s the appropriately named, Glazed Red Rock, a red velvet cake donut dipped in frosty glaze. Before making your way over to this brick fronted pastry oasis, keep in mind, they are only open until about 1: 30 pm – and that’s if they don’t sell out before.
Synergy is an organic coffee cafe, herbal elixir bar, chocolate shop, and apothecary all beautifully wrapped into a single wonderous bastion of excellence.

Truth be told, vibes are always high here, maybe it has something to do with the soothing CBD oils they sell, but more than likely, it’s probably related to their mind-altering herbal elixirs and love tonics.
Located towards uptown Sedona, Mago cafe offers a splendid cup of organic coffee, but for those interested in what could be considered an adventurous choice of beverage, they also have in their possession, local kombucha on tap. Kombucha is a refreshing fermented tea that’s carbonated and has been consumed for thousands of years; what really makes the stuff rejuvenating is its abundance of probiotics, amino acids, and B vitamins. A few other alternative libations they concoct that could put a jump in your spirits include Hwangchil Longevity Tea, known for its powerful healing properties and used by royal families for thousands of years in Korea, Japan and China, and Detox Healing Tea, which helps eliminate toxins that accumulate or form in the body in the process of breathing or consuming food.
If the magical beverages don’t work, try out an Aura or Chakra reading, where they figure out what’s influencing your current conditions. And when all else fails, sign up for a Belly Button Healing (we’ll let you explore their website to learn what that one is).
The overall atmosphere in each Wildflower restaurant is warm, comfortable, fresh, and contemporary, however, the main reason you are going to the store at 101 N Highway 89A, Sedona, AZ is for their outrageously awesome patio view.
