Dining in Sedona tends to be expensive, so your best bets for economical meals are sandwich shops or ethnic restaurants. For breakfast, locals swear by the Coffee Pot Restaurant, 2050 W. Ariz. 89A (www.coffeepotsedona.com; tel. 928/282-6626), which has been around for 30 years-plus. 

When you need good espresso, perhaps for that long drive to the Grand Canyon, you’ve got a few good options around town. In the Village of Oak Creek, try Firecreek Coffee, 6586 Ariz. 179 (tel. 928/485-4100), one of the better coffee roasters in northern Arizona.

Sedona Area Wineries

It may be a bit premature to start calling Sedona the next Napa Valley, but there are a few wineries in the area. Three of them, in the community of Page Springs about 20 minutes west of Sedona, are open to the public for tastings. Drive west from Sedona on Ariz. 89A and turn south on Page Springs Rd.; you’ll first come to Javelina Leap Vineyard & Winery, 1565 N. Page Springs Rd. (www.javelinaleapwinery.com; tel. 928/649-2681), where winemaker and owner Rod Snapp focuses on premium red wines. Javelina Leap produces wines from both estate-grown grapes and grapes from other Arizona vineyards. The tasting room ($8 fee) is open daily 11am to 5pm. Right next door, at Oak Creek Vineyards and Winery, 1555 N. Page Springs Rd. (www.oakcreekvineyards.net; tel. 928/649-0290); the tasting room ($5 fee) is open daily 10am to 6pm. The most impressive of the three is Page Springs Cellars, 1500 N. Page Springs Rd. (www.pagespringscellars.com; tel. 928/639-3004); Rhone varietals are the specialty of owner Eric Glomski, one of the state’s top winemakers. The tasting room ($10 fee) is open Sunday through Thursday 11am to 6pm, Friday and Saturday 11am to 9pm.
