Amazing coffee break

We were driving through the middle of nowhere and were joking about an Starbucks, because we both wanted to have a coffee. Then we saw Kiva koffee house. The coffe was delicious. And in addition to the great coffee, we could enjoy an awesome view. I highly recommend this place for a short break.

Great cup of coffee with a view.All sorts of organic brews and tasty desserts. I loved the location along one of the scenic byways in Utah and actually stopped there the year before.If traveling along Route 12 between Boulder and Escalante its a must stop for refueling.

Live in this region and dining at the Kiva Koffeehouse is a treat. In addition, eating on the patio under the shade covering is recommended. After eating, one is surrounded by great hiking and rock art possibilities.

coffee on the most beautiful hearth stone "patio" in the West. With fantastic views and lizards on the fence posts. It comes up on you quickly tho', so "map" it first. Have a dark roast for me.

We drove by a few times accessing local hikes and finally took the time to stop in. It was an experience without regret. We were able to try some amazing tamales and washed them down with good craft coffee. The building itself is worth stopping to see. There is a great selection of locally made gifts to bring home.

We were really excited to visit this place when planning our road trip. It's truely in the middle of nowhere and looked like our kind of place. (Good Coffee in a nice, scenic setting) The coffee was OK, the scenery limited, the prices high. The vibe was decidedly Academic, Liberal, Pretentious and not too friendly. We drank our coffee and...

breakfast on the patio was fantastic. Menu is small but it is a coffee house. Eggs, toast, and bacon on the terrace overlooking the red rocks of southern Utah. Need I say more?

This place was a great surprise for us. You can’t really expect good coffee and gourmet cakes in the middle of nowhere but this is exactly what this place has to offer. Add magnificent view and you got irresistible combination. You absolutely must stop there while driving Hwy 12.

It is located on the side of a road, close to nothing. The view can be hypnotizing, and is easy to love the ambiance of the location. The building is cool also since it is built into the side of a cliff with large wood pole supports and wall of windows. grade A. The service person sported an attitude and... More
