A wonderful pick-me-up for travellers

Great food and coffee! I'd highly recommend the spicy chai. Such a calm and serene coffeeshop in such a scenic location.

We stopped here upon recommendation for a cup of coffee and a muffin and were so glad we did! What a cool place! I got a raspberry muffin with coffee and I must say, it's probably one of the best muffins I've ever had. This views from this place are pretty and they have a bunch of random items in... More

Great food, wonderful coffee and a view that can't be described. We have passed by this place a number of times in our travels to Escalante, never again!! It will be the first place we stop!

A little out of the way so hard to stumble upon by accident but well worth a detour. I'm sure it will soon become a "best-kept secret" of the locals. The views of the mountains are stunning, providing a perfect setting to sip delicious coffee. The eggs on toast were delicious & bacon perfectly crips. And to top it all... More

If staying in Escalante the Kiva Coffeehouse is well worth the drive. We had a great lunch at table with killer views, Just a great find in the middle of no where.

The reputation of this place lived up to its hype. Great coffee and tea selections with a view to match. This is a clean and attractive establishment that exuded an air of quality which includes exterior architectural design and interior furnishings that were unexpected for an eatery in such a rural location. A mini version of the restaurants typically found... More

We had decided to stop at Kiva Koffeehouse after our hike to lower calf creek falls. What a nice place to relax! We were hot, so didn't want coffee, but had lemonade and a delicious blackberry muffin to recharge! Highly recommend this and would like to stop for coffee , breakfast and sunrise sometime!!

We almost drove past this gem. Wonderful coffee and food, friendly staff, and very unique building on bluff overlooking Escalante River. I was told there are also 2 rooms to rent in the guest house below the Koffeehouse. This will be a must stop on our next visit to the area.

If you are driving Highway 12, stop here for coffee. Easy to miss; all you can see is the sign from the road; coffehouse is tucked under the cliff with great views of the canyon. Quesadilla with zucchini in it was yummy; roast beef sandwich was fine. The servers seemed a little glum, but otherwise, we had a pleasant experience... More
