Nora Jean Kay-Askew



Nora Jean's is a family owned restaraunt that is focused on the community.  It was a life long dream of my mother Nora Jean Kay-Askew to have a small breakfast and lunch place along with her two sons.  Sadly she passed away from Leukemia in 2011 and was never able to fulfill that dream.  

Now, along with my wife and her sister, I have the opportunity to keep her dream, but naming the restaurant after her.  We have also incorporated a special coffee blend and are offering espresso drinks as she loved coffee. 

Being a 5th generation Arizona native,  I grew up in the White Mountains.  My wife and her sister both grew up here in Black Canyon City.  I have lived here for over 8 years and have been comimg to Black Canyon City for my whole life with my mom to visit her best freind of 40+ years and my now Mother-in-Law.    

We all live here and wanted to provide a product  that was not available here in Black Canyon City.  We offer espresso drinks, a special blend of coffee, roasted for us by Espressions Coffee Roastery in Phoenix, specialy scented teas that reflect our communtiy such as prickly pear black tea and prickly pear and peach green tea.  We also offer hand crafted sodas.

We offer a simple order - pick up style of service and offer a variety of fresh and seasonal items.  We hope you enjoy our free Wi-Fi, T.V. and warm environment!
