I gotta give Raul an A for Effort for the biscuits and gravy he made us yesterday. After all, they were the first thing ever cooked in our new fifth wheel’s little oven, he used Rene’s homemade “Bisquick” mix, and the gravy was from Tony Chachere’s Southern Pantry White Gravy Mix – a decent standby for quick homemade biscuits and gravy. But I must say the Coffee Pot in Sedona, AZ has served up the best biscuits and gravy on this trip so far.
Famous for serving up a menu of 101 different omelets since the 1950’s, this colorful and comfortable southwest restaurant is named after the nearby Coffee Pot rock – one of the many prominent red rock buttes surrounding Sedona, AZ. The service is fast and friendly. The coffe is good, and the leave the hot pitcher on the table so you can fill the unique handmade mugs which are available for purchase in the gift shop.
Since I felt it mandatory to order an omelet at a place that offers 101 varieties, I opted for a biscuit instead of toast and asked for a side of country gravy. A good decision indeed. The cut cake pan style biscuit was tall, fluffy and golden brown. The gravy was creamy with a smooth consistency and quite flavorful. Crispy hashbrowns and a tasty mushroom, avocado and swiss cheese omelet made this my best breakfast yet in our travels.
