This is really a cafeteria at least at breakfast

Quick food - not particularly warm but filling enough and very convenient. Good Starbucks coffee. A place to sit and eat without driving an hour to get out of the park.

For a cafeteria I wasn't expecting much but the chef made this fabulous curry dish that was exceptionally good. It could have been served in a fine restaurant. A very pleasant surprise and very well priced.

This is a great stop after you get into the park. It is 15 miles into the park. Is is a great place for a little break. Watch the hours, but they are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They have a nice little gift shop and coffee shop that also serves tea and ice cream.

Food court/cafeteria orientation. Make sure you and your dining partners are on the same page dining-wise, because some stations take longer than others. My husband went for the American breakfast station which gave him scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuit...I went for the the omelet, which was made to order and one of the best I've EVER had, but it took at...

A good place to eat if you are staying in the park and want more than just hamburgers. The Navajo tacos are good and big have one if you have never tried them before. Breakfast was also good and a great start to the morning.

The food and drinks are good here, but it's biggest attraction has to be the views. I could sit here all evening looking out and admiring the views.

When you're staying at the Park Lodge, your dining options are limited(unless you want to drive out of the Park.). The Lodge's restaurant was very good but also expensive. Far View is a short walk from the lodge and offers an excellent cafeteria-style breakfast. We also had an afternoon dessert there, but no other meals.

It was nice not to have to make a picnic lunch in the heat. But it is like any other place like this. Pricey! $9.00 for a nothing special burger. The air was not keeping up with the heat, but better than outside. It does have a nice view out the restaurant which was enjoyable.

The Far View Terrace "proudly brews Starbucks coffee" ... and that was all I needed to get my morning off on the right start. Because Mesa Verde is literally in the middle of nowhere, I really had minimal expectations for food, etc. in the park. However, I was so pleasantly surprised by what the Terrace had to offer. They have... More
