Beautiful patio (dog friendly). Great atmosphere. Try the scones or French Toast, both superb. Stellar salads, chicken salad on walnut cranberry bread sensational. Strong menu, coffee is locally roasted. Has become a fav destination.

The Grotto Café opened its doors November of 2011 and is a family owned business. We serve award winning locally roasted organic coffee from the Roastery of Cave Creek right here in town, fresh bagel & pastries along with breakfast & lunch. We also have a liquor license to complement our food and atmosphere. Here at the Grotto Café we have one of the largest outdoor patio areas in all of Cave Creek. We also have plenty of indoor seating to accommodate guests all year. We've built a reputation for being a local hot spot for locals and new guests of all ages. We take a tremendous amount of pride in what we do and would love the opportunity to serve you soon!
