Your Sedona Concierge Recommendations

Hi, I’m Megan, your Sedona Concierge. Got a burning question about What to See & Do in Sedona? Looking for the best Sedona hotels & motels, restaurants, galleries, shops, spas and more? Post a question! The best ones will be replied to right here on our Sedona.tv Blog with videos and customized recommendations to help you make the most out of your time in the Red Rocks!

Hi Megan! Thanks for all the helpful info so far! Lunch on the way up – was thinking the Asylum in Jerome, but then we miss that spectacular drive in to Sedona coming the back way. Any thoughts? Other plans are the Pink Jeep tour (Broken Arrow), dinner at Cafe Elote (love that place!), playing the horses at Stakes and Sticks, and lunch/dinner the day we head out. Maybe L’Auberge for lunch by the creek or Tii Gavo at Enchantment, dinner at Cucina Rustica. ~Rubee
Great choices so far Rubee! If you want a casual, super yummy breakfast or lunch try Secret Garden Cafe at Tlaquepaque…location is beautiful, food is healthy and delicious.

If you want something more formal, I recommend breakfast at L’Auberge over lunch. Cucina Rustica is an excellent restaurant for dinner – try the Grilled Artichoke appetizer – I’ve never had anything like it in my life!

I also like Cowboy Club’s Silver Saddle Room or Redstone Cabin for dinner – you’ll get to try some unique items if you like plus the service is impeccable and the food is unbelievable. TRY THE CACTUS FRIES just so you can say you did! LOL!

Make sure you do the drive up/down Oak Creek Canyon. Oak Creek Canyon was named one of the top 10 most scenic drives in America by Rand McNally.


Jerome is very cool, too! You can never go wrong with a visit to the Asylum – it kind of sits off the side of a cliff overlooking the Verde Valley. I also recommend the Haunted Hamburger for lunch. I’ve never tried it myself but all the locals rave about it.

Broken Arrow Tour with Pink Jeep Tours is one of the best jeep tours in town. You will love it! If you can book it for sunset time, you’ll find it even more breathtaking. Also visit http://www.pinkjeep.com/ and sign up for their E-Newsletter to get discounts!

Last but not least, just for fun, you might consider trying a pyschic reading – its a true Sedona experience! I’ve had some really amazing readings at the Center for the New Age.

Hope you enjoy your trip here! Please come back and comment on how you liked all of my recommendations!

Every month Sedona’s finest galleries roll out the red carpet, local wines, appeteasers and featured artists for the First Friday Evening in the Galleries Event. This month nearly every gallery on the tour has a special exhibit or artist reception where you’re likely to meet the artists behind the artwork. The best way to tour the SGA Galleries is to hop on the Sedona Trolley – they’ll take you from gallery to gallery so you can skip the driving and safely enjoy a few sips of the local vinos offered.
