While driving across Utah on Hwy 12 I had no idea where I was when I noticed a sign tucked to the side of the road for Kiva Koffeehouse. I pulled off onto a gravel pad and parked. I was overwhelmed by the view! As I made my way down some stairs at the end of the parking lot, I... More

This place is amazing. It is a great stopover between Capitol Reef and Bryce Canyon. Scenic Byway 12 is amazing and this was a great find! We had a pleasant lunch; the meat on our sandwuches was good quality and in addition to coffe, they have Italian sodas. I don't know what they were cooking, but it smelled amazing. The... More

The restaurant is located in a beautiful place......amazing views. It was hot inside....the ceiling fans did little to help that. The food was good. Take a look at the local pottery.

The reason this did not get an A+ is because the food wasn't that great... IT was good... Not Great. The coffee on the other hand was great. I did have to ask for the fresh type of espresso instead of the already made for my blended coffee drink but it was Great! A+++... The View was spectacular. It is... More

Hwy 12 the most scenic drive from St. George to Torrey Utah. Along the way, near Escalante, is this rustic, quaint Coffee Shop. Great place to stop for a cold drink and a snack before traveling on.

Found this place while driving from Bryce Canyon to Capitol Reef along Utah-12. Saw the sign for a coffee house and was so surprised by the location that we stopped to see what it was all about. Kiva is clean, well appointed and has gorgeous views. The staff is super friendly and the scones are great. It was like stepping... More
