Enjoy shakes PLUS sandwiches/salads

Shakes Alive would be a phenomenal stop for anyone visiting Estes Park late spring, summer, and early fall. Fuzzy Strawberry (combination of peach and strawberry) smoothie was perfect combination of fruits. Also enjoyed tuna salad, which was available either as a sandwich or on a tomato.

Excellent shakes, and while a bit expensive, we used a coupon, and they were great tasting. The owner was friendly and offers several healthy ingredients to add to your shakes or smoothies.

Stopped here after a long hike and it hit the spot! I wish they had a slightly smaller size, but me and my wife just ended up sharing.

Used to be just a shake and ice cream place. Now, they also serve GREAT sandwichs and mini meals. We shared the turkey sandwich which came with chips pickle and a large malt, all for just over ten dollars. The staff is VERY FRIENDLY.

My husband and I love the mixed fruit shakes made with real, true fruit. They accommodate our preferences with expertise. They listen to what we want. This little place is worth the trip and the atmosphere is uP beat. They do have limited food choices that compliment the fruit shakes. I have type I diabetes and I can enjoy one... More

This was another great food find in Estes Park! We ate here for lunch on August 16 after my 19 year old picked it from the Trip Advisor reviews (again!). This place is not just good for shakes and smoothies. The sandwiches are delicious, too. Most served on.a bagel, i think. The presentation is good even though in a "to... More

This sweet little shop has great shakes and smoothies! The sandwiches and wraps are okay. It's a good place for a quick lunch if you are in a hurry. It opens late and closes early!

Wife and daughter went here several times while we were in Estes. I tagged along one afternoon. While the girls behind the counter were your typical teenagers the owner was there and the guy was outstanding. He remembered my wife and daughter, made everyone relaxed and comfortable and made it a pleasant experience. On top of that the smoothies were... More

Looking for a place for a quick lunch, stopped by one of my favorite places in Estes. Had a Ham sandwich and a mango-Peach fruit shake. Knowing that I was sharing this with my wife, they put in 2 of everything, such as 2 pickle spears, 2 pretzels, etc. Great ham, with tomato, lettuce, and a great bread. After eating,... More

Come to find out, surprisingly, they are the ONLY smoothie restaurant in town. But, they were GREAT! They were a lil pricey ($5) but VERY good! One day we got vanilla shakes and those were AWESOME too! DEF recommend!
