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...

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.

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

This stand is like the last bastion for a caffeine fix as you leave Estes Park to enter RMNP. I stopped here twice to get a Mocha to drink on drives into the park. The drinks were good, tasted like a good coffee drink should and were convenient to access.

Joe, thank you for stopping in for some Joe-to-go and for writing. For years I felt there should be a drive through in Estes Park- specifically, near the entrance. It never came, so we built it. Thank you for frequenting our little shop. We look forward to seeing you again. More

If you're looking to walk up or drive through, the coffee drinks we had were good and the service was attentive and friendly. However, for those searching TripAdvisor for restaurant ratings, you may be surprised, as we were, to find three coffee establishments and a doughnut shop in the top five "restaurants." And, we've enjoyed all of them, and rated... More

ColoradoDoc, thank you for taking the time to submit a review. I share your sentiments on the lack of division between coffee/snack shops and restaurants. Hopefully, TripAdvisor will divide them at some point in the near future. That said, your review was 3-star. Was that aimed at the lack of delineation in the list containing too many coffee/snack shops or... More

The place to go on a cold windy day (or anytime) but the drive thru makes the grade on those wintery days! Great food selection as well!!

I always walk all the way down the road to the coffee shop on "the rocks" because I love the atmosphere. That's 1+ miles each way for great coffee, a microwaved burrito and a beautiful view. NOW I discovered this little joint with good coffee, great service and the ultimate veggie burrito . . . without the atmosphere. What's a... More

Thank you for making the trek to SummitView and discovering another great coffee shop and taking the time to review us. Our specialty lattes are second to none and we've done our best to isolate the tastiest burritos, bagels, muffins, cookies and baked goods we could find. The response overwhelmingly confirms our taste buds yet we'll never stop looking for... More
