Breakfast in Sedona with Kids
For those that are the active type, breakfast generally is something you do right before sunrise so you can get to the trail head before the sun comes up and the temperature swelters. If you have time, here are a few favorites that we visited.
Affordable with friendly staff, this place is great for families. They have a shareable cinnamon roll that is the size of someone's head. For our family of six, we could only eat half of one. Come here for breakfast, brunch, and lunch (highly recommend breakfast). Our little crew didn't have to wait at all. Generally, when you are in Sedona, hikes are generally the first thing on the list. This restaurant might be best on the day leaving Sedona so you are leaving on a full stomach first thing in the morning.
- Hours: 7am to 2pm, closed Tuesdays
- Known for: large cinnamon rolls and a delicious brunch
- Why is it kid friendly? It has tables for families, shareable cinnamon rolls, and lots of options for kids.
Sedonuts & Coffee
With the city as part of it's play on names, Sedonuts is a must visit. However, as a local establishment, you may find that is closed on holidays as well as Sundays. They have creative donuts that scream artistry. Make sure you plan accordingly!
- Hours: 6am to 12pm, closed Mondays
- Known for: Apple Fritter and Vortex Donut
- Why is it kid friendly? All kids love donuts!
Brunch, Lunch, and Dinner with Kids
Oak Creek Canyon Brewery and Grill
If you are planning on visiting Tlaquepaque Arts & Shopping Center area, Oak Creek Canyon Brewery and Grill is at the heart of it. This was one of our first stops after a morning hike, and the pizza did not disappoint. They also have a ton of different options with huge portion sizes.
- Hours: 11:30am to 7:30, early close on Monday at 3:00pm
- Known for: pizza and beer
- Why is it kid friendly? Kids love pizza, it's a loud environment, so kids can talk freely.
Rotten Johnny's Wood-Fire Pizza Pie
This wood-fire grill is a small restaurant with capacity limits, but it was absolutely delicious. They've got some amazing pizzas and delicious wine to choose from. Our kids even loved the specialty pizza! We also got the wood-fired shrimp appetizer, which was phenomenal. There is also sometimes outdoor entertainment as well.
- Hours: 11am to 9pm, except on Monday which is open between 5pm to 9pm
- Known for: pizza
- Why is it kid friendly? Indoor area may not be kid friendly, but the outdoor dining is allowing for kids to be rambunctious as they are.
We visited here for lunch after another hike. The wait was pretty long since we didn't have a reservation. Once we got to the table, drinks were served and we waited a bit for our food. Overall, ambiance was busy during lunch with the crowd. The food here was also phenomenal (we might be biased because we were super hungry). However, I do remember this being pretty pricey.
- Hours: 11am to 9pm, Daily
- Known For: Tacos and margaritas
- Why is it kid friendly? Great food and service with options for kids.
Creekside American Bistro
The views here are amazing, so make sure you grab reservations for outdoor seating. It literally is breathtaking to have dinner and see the Red Rocks from your table. The kids absolutely loved the mac and cheese they got. However, I would say between my husband and I's meal, it was "okay." The reviews are 4.5 stars, and I would say that we would give it 3 stars. It may be because of the dishes we got.
- Hours: 7:30am to 9pm, Daily
- Known For: Brunch
- Why is it kid friendly? Delicious mac and cheese and the views are incredible (you must try to get outdoor seating by the rails).

Pump House Station Urban Eatery and Market

Out of all of these restaurants, our favorite was by far Rotten's Johnny's Wood-Fire Pizza because the pizza is just that good.
