We were hoping for a great yet reasonably priced meal here but we were so disappointed. The menu was huge and it appeared to try to appeal to those who like home comfort cooking. It was nothing like any home cooking I have ever had....More

I really didn't pay attention to that because we don't have any small children and we didn't have any with us. Perhaps you can check out their menu, if it's online, to see if they have a children's menu.

Despite the name, Cafe Jose serves good old-fashioned home style cooking. It is a classic American diner which also happens to serve good Mexican food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served all day. Cafe Jose is a favorite spot for local residents. It has won the local award for the past several years for "Best Home Cooking," "Best Breakfast," "Best Family Dining." "Friendliest Wait Staff," and "Best Overall Bargain." The food is not fancy, but it is tasty and served with a smile. The portions are large, but meals are priced to fit anyone's budget.
