foodWe specialize in “in-room service” so you can fully relax while dining in the comfort and privacy of your suite, outdoors on your private patio or at our larger (& new) outdoor dining area. We cater to an active, healthy lifestyle with lots of choices for everyone including traditionalists, vegetarians, special diets, children and folks who just like to indulge now and again.

Specialities

Our breakfast menu varies,  some of our specialities include – cooked to your preference:  generous servings of specialty pancakes (mesquite-corn, blueberry buttermilk…),  frittatas (sweet pepper, fresh spinach…),  quiches, deep dish chili relleno casserole (vegetarian dish), mesquite bacon, pan-fried herb potatoes, apple crumble and a variety of fresh fruit smoothies including blueberry/orange, strawberry, peach, mango….  All foods are prepared with the highest quality ingredients, often organic, always fresh with lots of local and seasonal ingredients.

Your satisfaction is important to us and we happily accommodate special dietary needs with advance notice.  We often and elegantly serve both vegan and gluten free foods.

Other Meals

As we are remote, advance planning for lunch and supper meals is recommended. You may wish to bring along food provisions, purchase top quality supper provisions from us, or eat at local restaurants. We are 45 minutes from a major chain, larger grocery store. The nearest town of Sunsites (20 minutes and 3 miles of unpaved road away) has a lovely, small grocery store, several restaurants and cafes.

Provisioning

Many of our guests wish to enjoy meals here in the Canyon. We enjoy being a very small, exclusive and quiet business and do not have a “restaurant license”. Our B&B permit only allows us to cook breakfasts.

Due to frequent requests from those guests who prefer not to travel to a restaurant, or take up valuable vacation time with grocery shopping we offer a provisioning service. We will be very happy to provision you for some memorable, easy meals that you can enjoy either in the comfort of your accommodations or in the majesty of nature extraordinaire. You arrive to a fully stocked pantry and refrigerator with no further cares.

As we are a remote, wilderness destination, we normally maintain well stocked food supplies. We purchase high quality, wholesome, fresh and natural foods, using local specialties that nourish body, heart and soul. With sufficient advance notice we are able to provide all ingredients for a wide variety of entrees. Please let us know if you have any special dietary needs or concerns.

Suppers

We are happy to support you in the finest of informal, dining pleasures:

  • BBQ on your private porch
  • Campfire foods enjoyed sitting round a toasty warm fire (weather permitting)

There is a full kitchen in the Casita Manzanita and a fully equipped kitchenette in the Agave Suite. Both units have a propane BBQ on the back patio. The tipi has an outdoor fire pit with a grill and we have another beautiful fire pit as well.

Group Meal Provisioning

For parties of 8 people or more we can provision your group on a custom order basis and suggest menu ideas. We schedule weekly grocery shopping trips to a number of stores in Tucson, Willcox and Benson, so advance notice is necessary to provide your requests.

Local Restaurants

In Sunsites – “Margie’s Corner Cafe”, “Shadow Mountain Country Club”, “Sunsites Cafe”, and “TJ’s Bar & Grill”. Benson and Willcox also have several good restaurants which we can recommend.

Bisbee is noted for several very excellent restaurants, we are happy to recommend “Café Roka” and “Rosas Little Italy”.

Retreat/ Hermitage

We are happy to support secluded retreats (meditation, creative, stress-relief, bereavement, etc) with an extended stay.   A separate building houses a fully equipped kitchen which is typically used by those who stay here for a longer period of time.   Refrigeration, freezer space and all kitchen equipment is available on  pre-arranged basis.    Weekly grocery shopping for your stay can also be arranged.

Cochise Stronghold Bed & Breakfast is fully accessible. Ask us about accommodations for guests with special needs.
