Main Street Cottonwood: A Hidden Culinary Gem

Located just Southwest of Sedona, the city of Cottonwood is one of the hidden gems of the Sedona Verde Valley. This community of just over 10,000 is home to one of the most exciting culinary scenes in Arizona!

Main Street Cottonwood alone boasts more than 20 restaurants and cafes, with cuisines ranging from local staples like Arizona BBQ and Mexican roast chicken to international delights including Thai noodles and artisan gelato.

Cottonwood restaurants are all about complete dining experiences. Sit outside and enjoy the cool night air while sipping a cocktail and enjoying great live music. Grab some tacos to go and enjoy lunch in nature on a Cottonwood nature trail, or eat them in town on one of our monthly Art Walks. Whatever you want to eat, Cottonwood has it, and we have it in the best quality.

After you’re done eating, take a stroll through Old Town Cottonwood, the Heart of the Verde Valley. Old Town combines the classic Old-West small-town feel with all the trappings of modern life. The skyline makes for a perfect Arizona town photograph, but enter any of our shops, boutiques, or galleries and discover the hidden treasures crafted by artists from across the Verde Valley. From antique stores to give your home that Western flair, to art galleries housing art from sculpture to modern, to handcrafted jewelry that shows off the natural materials and aesthetics of the region, you really can have it all in a small package!

We are so proud of what we’ve created in Cottonwood. We’ve taken great care to ensure that Cottonwood can provide you with all the comforts of home, including your favorite food, while still maintaining the classic Southwest culture that you came to see. We are so excited to see you!
