El Encanto & El Encanto Dos

The original El Encanto Uno is a romantic Old‐World Mission‐style restaurant cradled in the heart of Cave Creek. Walk through the archway and you will feel as though you have been transported to Mexico with old brick walkways, beautiful tile scenes, and wrought iron gates, and furnishings. El Encanto Dos (their second restaurant) is located just minutes from the Ranch on Carefree Highway.

Coffee. Food. Beer… as their website says. Known for breakfast and burgers, they also have amazing spicy sea bass tacos. Jonny’s closes at 2:30 but now has evening hours on Thursday and Friday and a great happy hour.

Big Earl’s Greasy Eats

Born in the 1930s as a gas station, Big Earl’s opened as a hamburger joint in 2002. With only 4‐5 seats at the counter, Big Earl’s is mainly outdoor seating. Don’t go to Earl’s and count calories. The double Earl burger, Cajun fries and a chocolate malt…you’ll love every bite!

We love the loaded oatmeal and breakfast burritos! But Janey’s also has live music nearly every night of the week. With 12 beers on tap, a full bar and wine list, Janey’s is not just a coffee shop for breakfast!
