About Us - Entering our 5th year in serving the North Valley

Cathy Marr
Adjacent to the Sundial and directly across from the picturesque town center park, is Venues Café. Offering an American Bistro menu with an upscale, yet casual, dining atmosphere.  This beautiful building offers the ambiance of multiple textures of brick, copper, wood and stone and invites you to want to settle in and relax.  The fireplace is situated next to the well-stocked wine cellar.  Venue's bar is a great place to dine, watch your favorite team play on the multiple TVs over the bar and bask in the shadows of their 30' natural rock wall.

This Carefree favorite is in it's fifth season and is located at 34 Easy Street in downtown Carefree.  Owner Catherine Marr, born in Albany, New York, remarked "I am ecstatic over the welcome I have received from surrounding shop owners and many local patrons have become regulars."  Venues Café opened their doors on Oct. 3, 2010 and has become a real player with multiple awards for their food.
