Home Cooking from the heart
Nana’s has been delighting clientele with their diner style atmosphere and home-cooked meals for more than a year now.
The restaurant was formerly Café 10, which new owners Jamaal and Rhona McCoy purchased in August 2021. Since the McCoys were fans of Café 10’s menu, Nana’s continues to serve many old favorites, including fresh-baked cinnamon buns.
Nana’s updated menu also features such new dishes as lemon ricotta pancakes, eggs Benedict, country biscuits and gravy, Nana’s sandwich melts, buffalo chicken wrap and clam chowder.
Nana’s interior offers a rustic farmhouse décor with light wall colors and lighting for an inviting ambiance.
“Those wonderful dishes our grandmas made were the inspiration for Nana’s,” owner Jamaal McCoy says. Highlights of Nana’s menu are dishes handed down from the owners’ grandmothers, including old-fashioned sticky buns, homemade bread and soups, and fresh rhubarb pie.
Additional menu ideas came from customers.
After the McCoys purchased Café 10, they spent time talking with the restaurant’s guests to learn which dishes they most enjoyed and what new items they’d like to see added to the menu. McCoy said creating Nana’s has also been a family affair with Rhona McCoy handling staffing and daily operations and the couple’s 14-year-old daughter, Naya, making menu suggestions.
“Naya felt the menu should have more sweets,” says McCoy with a chuckle. “She was right! Our new bacon maple coffee cake, pecan pie, carrot cake, cherry cobbler, and gluten-free desserts have been very popular. We bake something fresh all the time, so our desserts change often. We can even do pies for your holiday gathering.”
The restaurant serves breakfast and lunch, six days a week, Wednesday through Monday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“We love Prescott,” McCoy says. “We felt one way we could contribute to the city was by providing more places where people can gather to enjoy great food and company.”
The McCoy’s other restaurants under their company Krave Restaurant Group include Barbudos Mexican Grill & Cantina, Vibes Juice Bar and Lucy Dee’s BBQ.
