Wildflower Bread Company is a laid back café and patisserie where you can satisfy your sweet tooth in more ways than you can imagine (pro tip: Make sure to pair it with one of their strong cups of java).
There’s a Coldstone Creamery in town if you’re in the mood for something chilly and familiar. At Sedona Memories Bakery Café, you can sit and indulge in every patisserie option imaginable. Judi’s Restaurant and Lounge is a classic Americana diner and surf and turf destination, but is also incredibly well known locally for their extensive dessert menu.

You’re on vacation, so make the most of it! Every day, a complimentary breakfast buffet is available to guests, including your favorite sweet eats like waffles, muffins, croissants and more. Alternatively, you can go to Sedona Sweet Arts and discover what local baking wizards have whipped up.
Zainey’s Frozen Yogurt is a great way to beat the AZ heat, and the ChocolaTree is a must for that cacao fix. Try Black Cow Café for a morning pick-me-up, or Oh My Ganache! for a once in a lifetime dessert with all the trimmings.
