Do not miss this place! The views and food and coffee are so perfect; it's like an oasis in the middle of a gorgeous setting. It's often hard to find a great espresso far away from the city but fear not; Kiva Koffeehouse is the place.

Quality food in an unexpected place. Excellent coffee. I tried the oatmeal pancakes and potatoe/quinoa/spinach pancakes.

This wonderful addition to the eateries in the area is located with a view overlooking the Escalante River and canyon. A varied menu of healthy food served in a friendly atmosphere.

Building is amazing but its beauty didn't make up for the lackadaisical, pretentious, unfriendly service. Food was one tier above McDonald's.

Wonderful pastries and great coffee selection. Service can be slow due to lack of staff but it's worth the wait as you gaze out over the Escalante River.

For the past three years, we've enjoyed Easter Brunch with friends at the Kiva Koffeehouse. This year, we enjoyed outdoor dining overlooking the Escalante River valley. We began with refreshing, freshly brewed iced tea. Next, my spouse and I shared two dishes. The spring eggs with asparagus and cheese were fluffy, warm and perfectly cooked.

This is a little oasis for those traveling through Boulder and Escalante. It has coffee house drinks and yummies as well as WiFi (something you don't get much of in this area). It has a nice deck to catch some sun and enjoy the vista.

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.
