Coffee and ducks

We stopped here on our 2nd day because I needed my afternoon coffee and we were in the area and saw the sign. Once we had the coffee, we knew it would be a daily ritual for the rest of the week we were in Estes Park. We never had breakfast items, but did order some type of coffee cake... read more

Stopped in for a couple cups of coffee after reading other reviews. If you like stronger shots in your latte then this place is for you. I was not expecting the amount of flavor that I was gettin, most places lattes taste pretty blah and nothing special. My wife got a regular house brew coffee and was very satisfied. I... More

This is the only place that we go every time we are in Estes. Best coffee around, great breakfast sandwiches and I absolutely love sitting on the edge of the pond, so peaceful. The wife loves to feed the ducks/geese in the summertime. Homerun on this one.

Looking for opportunities to escape the YMCA of the Rockies, I often retreated to Coffee on the Rocks. Here I found great coffee and desserts, and a tranquil pond where I could sit and relax while feeding the ducks. A great place to stop when you need a break from all the usual tourist activities.

We dropped in for hot chocolate after a cold day hiking. The owner was friendly and very attentive. The place has a quaint atmosphere. There are games, books and it makes you feel right at home. The hot chocolate was delicious too. We will be back!

We adore Coffee on the Rocks. During the 4 weeks that we stay here, we try to go for morning coffee as often as possible. Sitting by the pond in an Adirondack chair, watching the ducks fly in and out, and occasionally seeing elk feeding on willows across the river which runs along the side of the property is absolutely...

Coffee on the Rocks is one of the best finds in Estes Park. Not only do they have great, organic, fair-trade coffee, (and other hot drinks) but they have a delicious assortment of teas, AND beer and wine. Want a hot toddy? they can add Whiskey, Amaretto, and Kahlua to your coffee. What a great way to warm up after... More

Neat atmosphere with outdoor seating along a trickling stream. Long wait, a bit busy. Adirondack chairs and free wifi.

I only wish I had discovered before our last day in Estes Park! After three days of bleh hotel room coffee, I needed some of the good stuff! The staff was friendly and the service was fast. All of the drinks seemed reasonably priced and regular coffee gets one refill. We went on a Sunday morning and the place got... More

Stopped in for my daily caffeine fix (chai latte) and breakfast sandwich (ham, egg, cheese on English muffin). Both were exceptional. I walked my dog around the pond and he got to chase the ducks. Super cute place inside and out.
