Traveling through the area and luckily found Kafe Kokopelli. Enjoyed drink and appetizer at the bar while getting something to go. Very friendly staff, cute eclectic restaurant with a nice bar area. Tried the pub nachos which were very good and the prime rib sandwich which was excellent. Hard to choose because the menu looked great. Looking forward to returning... More

We are thrilled to find such a quaint restaurant with such a fine menu. Great service the whole night. We celebrated my wife's birthday starting with a fried Brie Cheese appetizer which was served up with a side of cranberry sauce and honey. Very Tasty! Then we both ordered pasta dishes made to order. Both were large savory dishes with... More

Kokopelli's has been a favorite for years, but the last few visits have seen rapid declination in service, taste, and presentation. Our last visit in particular left us having to get up and request a server after being seated for 20 minutes with no visit to our table, and then again at the end of the meal to have someone...

Sorry to hear your experiences have not been up to expectations. We have been training new staff in both front of the house and back of the house the past few weeks in anticipation of our winter season. I'm not making excuses and appreciate the feedback. It would be helpful if you'd let me know the dates (lunch or dinner)... More

At a table of three each got a different main course. The grilled shrimp salad was very good, the filet was so tender it cut with a fork and the pasta dish was very creamy with lots of flavor. This restaurant never fails to impress.

We (family members) recently had a celebration dinner here. Loved the eclectic look of the place inside. We were instantly met by members of the staff when we walked in and shown to our table. It was a slow night as there were many empty tables. Our waitress introduced herself and took our drink orders; love when someone is attentive.... More

We went for lunch and to look the place over as we are planning a family holiday lunch to be located in the middle of Florida as people will be coming from all directions. It is an attractive restaurant with a warm atmosphere and perfect for a casual lunch or dinner for a small or large group. The manager, Andrea,... More

Description
Located in Historic Downtown Dade City Florida, Kafe Kokopelli resides in a near 100 year old red-brick, vine covered building that was constructed in 1919. Originally built as a Model-T Ford Sales and Service center it was home to the local Ford dealers until the mid 1970's. Saved a few months from demolition, the building was restored and converted to house what is now Kafe Kokopelli, a favorite of locals and visitors from all over the country.
