Hosting Free Thanksgiving Dinner to Sedona Community
One of Sedona’s busiest breakfast/lunch eateries, famous for their 101 omelettes continues with it’s Coffeepot Thanksgiving community tradition of serving a FREE authentic Thanksgiving Day dinner to the Sedona community on Wednesday November 25th starting at 3 PM. Residents from all Sedona neighborhoods participate every year excited to enjoy this wonderful meal hosted by Emile Daher, his family and long time employees.
Some of the employees have been with the restaurant since Emile took it over. They bring their children with them to partake in this feast and teach them the meaning of volunteerism. There is quiet satisfaction when you give of yourself to serve your fellow human being. Emile is hoping to serve 600 meals this year! The community will start lining up around 2 PM in front of Coffeepot. Andre, Emile’s son, said that he could have 100 volunteers standing around if he accepted everyone’s offer to help. The employees volunteer their time to prepare and serve this generous meal to the community.
Andre has stated, “this is just our small way of giving back to a community that has given so much to us”.
This has been a tradition as long as we have been residents in Sedona. The Coffeepot Restuarant was named for the famous rock you see in the picture which looks like an old percolating coffeepot that was used on cookouts and stovetops. Tourists and residents alike visit this popular restaurant because of the variety of breakfast and lunch items, and well of course the food and service is so good!
As you enter the restaurant, the wall on the left side is filled with signed pictures of many of Hollywood’s elite stars. Many celebrities enjoy a scrumptious meal and take a picture with Emile!
Coffeepot Restaurant has been a distinct community landmark from the 1950’s on. I have enjoyed many of the 101 famous omelletes as well as the genuine Mexican food that is served here. OK! I have even tasted a buckwheat waffle or two!
I highly recommend Coffeepot having a meal there. When the weather is pleasant, you can even enjoy a meal in their private terrace and garden area. There is nothing better. The service staff is friendly and you can’t have better hosts than Emile and Andre. Happy Thanksgiving from Sedona Arizona!
