100th Anniversary of Rocky Mountain National Park!

WE MADE IT!!! I can say that after braving Old Fall River Road I was delighted to reach the Trail Ridge Shop and Cafe! A couple postcards with pictures better than I have taken and some chocolate all was right with the world!!! The Store is at 11,976' with a beautiful view. Of course it has all... read more

Nice selection of gifty things - we didn't eat; but lots of people did. We bought beautiful Christmas cards here - nice selection of unusual boxed cards - what a pleasant surprise!

This is probably the highest gift shop, snack shop and restrooms in the United States. The gift shop is really large with lots of local options, the snack shop menu is short but expensive and good only for a quick snack but the fabulous views from the snack shop and outdoor viewing area are well worth the rest stop and...

Great place to pick up something to eat if you hadn't brought food with you or a souvenir of the park. Or if you thought it wasn't going to be so cold they have jackets and sweatshirts for you needs. Nice views from inside while you shop or sit and eat. It can get very busy and parking on busy... More

This is a good snack and restroom stop while traveling thru Rocky Mountain National Park.The food is average for a snack stop, don't look here for a full meal. What makes this standout are the views. Can't beat them. Also a decent gift shop. Worth it to stop here

we were starving, so my husband and I split a chili dog until we could get back to Estes Park for a better meal. The chili dog was good, but it was overpriced.

Enjoyed shopping here and grabbing a juice to go. So MANY people, but worth the time to shop. Love the views outside. Staff very friendly and helpful.

The parking was absolutely horrendous, but once inside, we were pleasantly surprised. The chili and other "hot" items were better than expected, and the window seating was magnificent. Prices were what I would expect for where we were. The cafe is strategically located at the back of the gift shop (btw, my favorite gift shop on our whole trip). Overall,... More

This isn't the best food you will have, but the question is it more convenient than packing a picnic lunch. For us it was. My wife and I had BBQ sandwiches and they were fine. Kids had hot dogs and liked them too.

A Great drive to get to the Trail Ridge Store Snack Bar. A Great place to stop once you get to the visitors center. Most times you will see wildlife on your way up. Sometimes on busy summer days there will not be any parking spaces in the parking lot.
