Need a lot of a great latte with interesting flavors? This is the place! Nice to support a local business and the drive-thru kiosks are convenient.

Thank you GlacierParkLover for taking the time to review your visit! I too am a great fan of Glacier and believe it to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. As you probably saw, most of our drink names are based on animals you'd find in the various national parks. Thank you for giving us the opportunity! Be... More

As luck would have it, we have a drink matching the title of your review- the Cherry Bomb. It was created by Amanda, our very first employee. How can you go wrong with dark chocolate and cherry?

Loved the chicken friend latte. Definitely tasted banana in it. My daughter had iced red raspberry tea. Both were great. The service was fast and friendly. I would be a regular customer of this place is I lived in EP. Good thing I'm not because a daily chicken fried latte would destroy my waistline! But they are soooo good and... More

Ah, the Chicken Fried Latte(tm) strikes again! People taste many things and some of them are spot on. Thank you for the review and for taking the Chicken Fried plunge. Glad your daughter loved the iced tea. We make them fresh at the time of order. Be well and we'll see you soon. More

I swear for a second I tasted chicken in that latte. Is there really chicken in it. Otherwise excellent friendly and fun. And if there is chicken, you ordered it, lol

There's only one way to find out what's in the Chicken Fried and we thank you for taking the plunge. We really need to start recording the facial expressions of people who take their first-ever sip for they are priceless. Most go WHOAAAA THAT'S INCREDIBLE!!! and I'm not making that up.

If I had such a great view of the mountains from my workplace, I'd probably be this happy and friendly, too. The staff was friendly and conversational; and helpful with some questions about the town and activities while we waited on our drinks. The coffee was great - I had one of their specialty lattes, and it was delicious, and... More

Thank you for the review highlighting our service, the quality and the views. When the winter arrives and on those odd quiet moments in the summer, peering up to the continental divide is quite a motivator. The scene changes ever day. We look forward to seeing you again and will have the hot chocolate ready! More

Their coffee was EXCELLENT. Their breakfast burritos upset my husband's stomach, but mine was fine. I think it may have had beans in it.

I must start this review with the truth. I've been a long time visitor of Starbucks, got the gold card and everything (those who frequent Starbucks know what I mean). With that being said, I tried SummitView based on recommendations from Tripadvisor, and my expectations were exceeded. Friendly service and great coffee. I only visited them three times and they...

As funny as it sounds, we too were gold-card holding, Starbucks lovers for years! They pioneered this business so we are thankful they opened the door for us to improve upon the idea. Reviews like yours are the realization of the attention to detail and outside-the-box thinking necessary to compete in a market with such high standards. The Chicken Fried... More

Didn't know what it was -- it's their speciality item -- but I've gone back for three of these tasty treats. Yummy drinks and food items too! Very convenient drive through coffee stand. Sometimes a bit of a wait but well worth it! Friendly staff.

They have decent coffee, but for anyone wanting more than a quick latte or a quick specialty drink, don't expect gourmet. It's good...I just like other places in town better.

Thank you very much for reviewing SummitView! We pride ourselves in providing the highest quality products available, consistently, in the convenience of a drive-thru. What could have done specifically to improve? We only have two 3-star ratings and never want to be known as "decent" so your feedback will be acted upon immediately. Please advise. Thank you. More

We come to Estes Park every year as a family. One of our daily stops is at SummitView coffee. We always hope to catch Anthony, the owner, who is a delight to speak with. This is a great stop to grab a cup of Joe, or a large Americano with an extra shot to get the day going, before heading... More

Thank you Jeremy. I recall the conversations and it's always nice to chat with another business owner. Ironically, we always meet up on the days I'm not supposed to be there which means the meetings are meant to be. Thank you for the feedback and suggestions; they are appreciated. Be well, Sir. More
