The coffee and service was very good. There is seating inside and outside beside the river. The place is very popular and was packed most days.

This must be the place all the locals go for their coffee, and for good reason. The cups of Joe are just about as good as the Starbucks a few doors down. Personally we drink Starbucks most of the time, so we use that as our standard. Still it's good to try new spots, especially local coffee shops--and especially this... More

We really wanted to love this place. We had a very simple order: 1 small cappuccino, 1 small latte. No flavors, no fancy changes, add-ins, etc. I placed my order and the woman was just finishing two drinks. Fine, I thought. This will be quick. Hmmm. She was slow. Really slow. It was painful watching the woman make our two... More

Great menu, taste better than Starbucks. Large menu, several varieties with seasonal flavors. Great to sit inside for a view of the river, or outside right next to it.

Avoid busy Elkhorn Avenue by parking at the Estes Park Visitor Center and taking the Riverwalk to Kind Coffee. My niece from Texas absolutely loves the Longs Peak Blend. It is always on her Christmas wish list - or any other wish list. Recently, she was here for a short visit and we had to go to Estes Park so... More

I like to support coffee shops that promote sustainability—and Kind is one of the nicest, with a convenient location in downtown Estes Park and an idyllic setting along the creek. Kind serves certified organic fairly traded coffee and locally made pastries and bagels. And since I mostly drink decaf, I was relieved to learn they serve naturally processed Swiss Water... More

We had hoped that "Kind" coffee might provide a different experience; as it turned out, we also were in need of a cup of Joe.

I recently had a delicious cup of coffee here served by very people. However, the best thing was a herd of Elk walked right by the window. The male was bugleing and herding a number of cows right there. Beautiful place to sit and have a morning cup of coffee!

We always stop here. Like it better than Starbucks, usually sit outside on the river walk next to the river. Good for people watching too. Good food, friendly people. Looks like it is a local favorite place, so that counts for something.
