Made our second trip here. This time there was no goof up in our order or missing, there was an adult working with one I the young girls workin the register so all good. We went in earlier than last time and had a better selection to choose from . This time tried their Pecan cinnamon roll and it's amaaaazing. Tried their cafe Americano and it was somewhat weaker than I expected , still good.
On a bike tour with a friend from France and she agrees these are some of the best pastries we have yet to find in the US. This place is a little gem tucked away in a residential part of Safford not far off from Main St. The scone and pecan rolls are to die for! You won't wanna miss this place :D
The owners are delightful to interact with and do business. The food, especially the baked goods, which are available in the bakery, are some of the best I have ever had! Breakfast pancakes were light and tasty served with blueberries and delicious homemade jam. Breakfast is served either in the cottage or in the courtyard surrounded by plants and a vegetable garden. Very relaxing atmosphere! We stayed here so we could visit the Mt. Graham telescopes. Both turned out to provide a great stay in Safford.

Mi Casa Tortilla Factory

621 S 7th Ave
Safford, 85546
Reviews:
Their regular flour tortillas were good, but the apple cinnamon tortillas were what really set this place apart from other fresh tortilla joints. The unique taste was a new experience that I recommend trying at least once!
Mi Casa Tortilla gets a five! I have always liked the corn tortilla chips with sea salt. They also make some of the best tortillas around. I especially like they're small snack size tortillas which are used to make grilled tacos. I've been in the store before and I have noticed a few different other snack tortillas. Lo and behold they are flavored. Apple spice and blueberry. Oh my goodness! The blueberry are amazing. I couldn't wait till I got home, I pulled the bag out when I got my car, unwrap to the bag, pulled a tortilla out, tore a some off, in my mouth it went and oh my. It has true blueberry taste. They were still slightly warm, if only I had a little bit of butter with me. You need to try these out, they are amazing. Hmmmm, I wonder what a little cream cheese would be like on them?
I am down to my last Blueberry Tortilla....Its so depressing. Moving away from AZ has been hard and that is because I am without Mi Casa Tortillas. Why do people even eat tortillas if they aren't MCTF? There is no point. No point in burritos, or cheese crisps or...or...life really. You can eat these hot or cold or warm with a little butter. They also make special flavors now and they are always fresh and fantastic every time. They also freeze and defrost really well.

Outstanding food, great service and Cindy took the time to ask our names and welcome us to Safford. I had Colleen's Chicken Cream Cheese Croissant and it was fantastic. My husband Charlie had the BLT and it was loaded with bacon. Great place and nice people. We'll be back for sure.
It's rare anywhere in the US these days to find breakfast for $5 or under, so kudos to Main Street Cafe for keeping that dream alive. Here you can get eggs, sausage or bacon, and toast or a tortilla for a very good price. Adding a side of hash browns won't cost you much more. The food isn't particularly exciting and/or of the greatest quality, but it will fill you up without breaking your bank. The service is friendly and it seems like many a local spends all morning hanging here.
We ordered the Ruben, BLT, and club sandwich. They came with a bag of chips and a dill pickle spear. The restaurant was clean and the food came fast. You have to go through the kitchen to get to the bathroom which was sort of weird. They have smoothies and a few dessert options if we go back. There is also a daily special menu that looked interesting. Overall not a bad option in Safford for a quick lunch.

Great fast Mexican food! Their "rolled tacos" are really good! I enjoyed their horchata and pickled carrots. The "super fries" are okay.

Casa Manana Restaurant

Corner of Hwy 191 & 70
Safford, 85546
Reviews:
In the middle of this little town called Safford, we stopped to have an early dinner at Casa Manana. So glad we did. At 2:30 in the afternoon, the place was packed. Parking lot only had a few spaces left. Always a good sign to us. Was a little bit confused by the Luau motif (when walking into a Mexican restaurant.) I informed the young man that immediately brought us a nice size basket of corn & flour chips that I can't have gluten. He came right back with a basket of corn chips and another bowl for my own salsa. Waitress was extremely nice, and genuine, showed me the restricted diet portion of the menu. I ordered the pork tamales (homemade!) And hubby ordered the #2 (beef taco & 2 beef enchiladas) both of us barely spoke as we tasted our plates. Hubby judges new restaurants (mexican anyhow) on the enchiladas. He described it as "awesome". Salsa was pretty good. Got our food super fast, and the place was busy...Really impressed that they showed how much they care about their customers. Waitress had a very large party in the room with us, and forgot about our iced teas for a little while. She sent them to our table, informed us they were on the house, and then even brought us refills in to go cups. My tamales were great, fresh and homemade. Keep up the good work Casa!
Delicious!! We drive through Safford several times a year and had never been until tonight. The Machaca was the best I've ever had. Salsa and chips were very tasty and the retried beans were creamy and perfect. Excellent service and very clean. We will be back!
Fast friendly service. Good food. Large kid portions. We are from out if town and have been here before. We came back.

Casa Manana

502 S 1st Ave
Safford, 85546
Reviews:
There are too many places in this valley to get Mexican food. We have a "Salsa Trail" for goodness sake! With so many options, flavor is a deeply personal and subjective matter for locals when it comes to Mexican cuisine in the Gila Valley. Around here, people's favorite Mexican food usually boils down to a favorite dish at one location and a different favorite dish at another, rather than a global consensus of who has the best Mexican food around. Even though there will never be a general consensus about the best, there are a few standard establishments that locals can rely on. Casa Manana is one of them. Casa is our first choice for Mexican cuisine when we are in Safford and need a quick yet pleasant service we can count on to get us back on the road stuffed and happy. Management has a knack for finding talented and enthusiastic employees to help us keep up with our breakneck schedule and foodie inclinations. Casa Manana is now owned by a family who has always been a top competitor in such a highly saturated market for a very long time. They excel in customer service, and a varied menu that never rests on its laurels. One of the owners even cordoned off a section of the kitchen for himself just to experiment with new menu ideas. I also like that I never know when their research kitchen is going to produce a new delightful addition. For example, during the summer time, they have an expanded luau menu that should not be missed. Many would say Casa is known for their shredded beef tacos and enchiladas. By the way, if you ever go to a Mexican restaurant that does not offer shredded beef, run the other way. Though Casa's shredded beef standards are good, I think there are other items that offer a more unique experience. Again, the summer luau menu is also well-known and should not be missed. During the rest of the year, we usually alternate a few of our favorites depending what we are in the mood for. The steak empanadas with Baja sauce are excellent and at least one of us gets them each time (pictured here). Their stuffed chili relleno is very large and comes with shredded chicken or beef (also seen here). We also recommend the creamy chicken enchiladas with sour cream inside, the always excellent fajita salad, and the fish tacos with Baja sauce. Casa is the only restaurant that I know of in the Gila Valley that offers Baja sauce. Who doesn't love a spicy dip that goes on just about anything. Keep in mind their menu is quite varied, and we have yet to try everything, so there might be a dish you like or find that has not made this particular review. Now, a word on Salsa. We also like that Casa offers two different complimentary salsas with their complimentary basket of chips. More Mexican restaurants should offer a few different salsa options to offer different salsa paring options for different dishes that cater to different tastes. This was a good move on Casa's part. Their building is one of the neatest from the outside combining a well manicured old house (casa) with a new expansion to accommodate its ever expanding popularity. An appropriate balance of old and new is what you can expect at Casa Manana. However, be warned, parking can be tricky. Also, consider coming to Casa Manana for birthdays as well because they offer free fried ice cream for the birthday kid or kid at heart. You will have fun watching their team of perky employees sing to you or your loved one. They must be cloning good help other there.
This place is fantastic on so many levels. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The service is very efficient. The food is delicious and very reasonably priced. The portions are huge! Would definitely come back and/or recommend!
Casa mañana is the perfect place for a nice Mexican meal in a fun little dive restaurant. The decorations of their Hawaiian themed menu with the hanging paper Palm trees and pineapples are very tacky but fun. The staff is super friendly and welcoming. Their food is quite good. Although not really true Mexican flavours they do put a nice spin on their own rendition of the cuisine. The kalua tacos that I had were very good. The side salsa of pineapple and coconut gave a very interesting and fresh flavour to the pulled pork. The portions are massive. I could barely eat half of my meal. Oh! And I highly recommend the margaritas. They are very fresh and tasty. I will probably come back mañana.

Copper Steer Steakhouse

1206 E US Hwy 70
Safford, 85546
Reviews:
Not good.. went in traveling across state with a buddy. an I hade the t- bone stake dinner for 27 dollars. I received dinner salad that was brown looked a few days old. Then out came the main course cold reheated zuccini and reheated mash potatos no flab or then to the steak lol the steak was not even close to a flat iron from any reputable steak house. Used excessive Montreal steak seasoning. Will never think or refer anyone to this place really sad .
The atmosphere was great we ate up on top at the sports bar area but it was way too dark to read the menu. Big mistake. After we ordered it took at least 45 minutes get our burgers and the burgers were way on the salty side with the meat still red in the middle. Ugh! We were happy with our fried pickles as they were so delicious and our waitress was super friendly.
I've eaten here 4 times and each time was blah. To bad as it could be a great place to eat. The steakhouse on the hill serves better quality of meat and the sides are better.

We visited El Coronado we family. There were four of us and the food was excellent. My husband likes hot, spicy food, and this was truly authentic Mexican food. They did a great job. Our waitress was very friendly and when she got tied up at another table, because they were extremely busy, another waitress brought our food out so it wouldn't get cold. That waitress then let our waitress know. They were really friendly with us and each other. It was a great team effort!
I ordered. A breakfast quesadilla with chorizo. Chorizo was almost burnt definitely will not order this dish again.
Great food...excellent service. Worth the drive to get to it. Carrot cake is out of this world.

Jumbo Chinese Restaurant

817 W Thatcher Blvd
Safford, 85546
Reviews:
I love this place it has great food, good service and reasonable prices. There's only three Chinese food places in town and this is the only one worth going to. Moved here from Phoenix and this is even better than most of the places I've been there. Only thing that does sucks is they do close for a while in the summer when they go to visit family.
I got the curried chicken and it was good. While I wouldn't rave about its splendor, the entrée consisted of crisp, seemingly fresh vegetables and had a pleasant taste. I enjoyed the decor and the service was okay (although I would have assumed that we would be waited on a little more seeing as there were only three tables - but whatever). The "fried rice" is not your stereotypical fried rice. It didn't have anything in it (like the usual mixed vegetables and egg). I think it was just put in a frying pan and stirred around. It still tasted alright. The bathroom wasn't the epitome of cleanliness (a little pumice would go a long way). As far as I was able to observe, the food was prepared by actual Asians (I know that some people are particular about such things). I probably won't be going back any time soon, but if you like Asian food you can give it a try.
The food came out over cooked. Sent it back after begging the server to take it back. The food came back out over cooked again. I think they need to change the fried chicken dishes to jerky. That would be a better description. I would give it no stars if it would let me.
