Great lunch

While their shakes etc are sinfully delicious, don't forget to try any of their sandwiches. They are filling and tasty. The staff is friendly and personable; they should be, as it always seems to be run by the owners.

Visited for breakfast. My wife cannot have dairy so they made a fruit smoothie without dairy for her. I had a breakfast wrap and don't eat eggs and they made a fresh wrap without eggs. Lovely fresh food and friendly service

We wanted a quick early meal before heading into Rocky Mountain National Park for the evening elk bugling. We discovered Shakes Alive after we found other places nearby were already closed for the evening. We ordered veggie wraps, tuna, and ham sandwiches plus side orders of chips. They were hearty and tasty plus the chips were a large serving of... More

These guys are great. Subway is packed with people and a long wait and 50 feet away is a hidden gem. Good sandwich, plus fresh small salad, plus big handful of chips, pickle and A THIN MINT! All for $6. Fast friendly and great healthy sandwiches or wraps. They do shakes and smoothies but we needed protein to go hiking.... More

Shakes Alive is the best place ever to buy a fruit shake or regular shake made with frozen yogurt. My husband gets the Strawberry-Banana Shake made with Yogurt and I get the Strawberry-Banana-Pina Colada "just" fruit shake. They are ALWAYS delicious and hit the spot on a day after a hike in the mountains. We highly recommend this place. Great... More

They had sandwiches and shakes. I tried a rasberry shake. It was delicious. Never had a fruit shake before and I would recommend it to anyone.

I stopped here after the Rocky Mountain Half Marathon on a Saturday the first weekend of August. The place was crowded and there was quite the line, but I really wanted a protein smoothie so I waited. I was impressed with how they kept the line moving, yet they were always friendly. When I ordered for myself and my kids... More
