I had a pineapple smoothie and a bagel. Both were good. My daughter had a pretty latte with her bagel. She was pleased. Service is relaxed. The wifi was working. The view is great!

Stopped in to check out this place in the middle of Scenic Drive on Highway 12 and was delighted to find this oasis! It's situated on the side of a hill with inside and outside dining options. Cost was reasonable to say the least. Our piece of carrot cake was $3.50 and was enough for two people. Would happily stop... More

What a view! Had the roast beef sandwich and was surprised at how fresh the lettuce & tomatoes were. It was delicious! Oh, did I say how awesome the view is?

Kiva Koffeehouse is a cute little restaurant tucked away on the side of the road. There is a gorgeous view from your seat at one of the tables. The staff are very nice and customer service is amazing. I strongly recommend the chai latte, the frozen drinks, and the lemon bar. The past of the restaurant is also very fascinating.... More

This is a magic coffee house that appears in the middle of nowhere when you least expect it. The glass windows open to the perfect view. The coffee is good. We visit it every time we get close to the place. Don't miss it!

If you ever find yourself driving from Bryce Canyon to Capitol Reef via Hwy 12, you must drop by this coffee house 12 miles outside Escalante. You can easily miss it as there is nothing else around and the semi circular wooden structure is hidden in the rock. Reminiscent of Californian 1950s style it has floor to ceiling windows looking...

Be careful to watch for signs to a wonderful stop, wonderful views, wonderful food and drink. Kiva is an oasis in the wilderness. Friendly folks, nice sandwiches and treats, and a perfect spot for a break.
