Tasty, greasy meal

I had the Cave Man Hash. Everything tasted good but it seemed pretty greasy and the had was cooked but not browned. I came in at 2:30 and the close at 3 so I wonder if they were just trying to get things done fast. It is a bit pricey but that's Estes in the summer for you.

I have lived in Estes Park for 3 years. I use to love this place, but the last two visits have disappointed me. The breakfast potatoes came out burnt twice, cold toast, my pancakes where burnt and cold. My friends hash was burnt to a crisp. This local wont be back.

We read good reviews of Notchtop Bakery & Cafe on TripAdvisor, so we thought we would try them out. We were glad we did!! We both ordered the American Breakfast: 2 eggs, toast, potatoes, meat. I had scrambled eggs with cheese added, the country potatoes and bacon. My husband had eggs over medium, the hash browns and bacon. You could... More

The service was horrible, our server waited on us , brought us back half our drink orders then forgot the other half, messed up all 8 orders, every time we asked for something we had to wait 10-15 minutes to get it. Never brought my chocolate milk after waiting the whole time and asking 3 times for it. Extremely disappointed... More

When we arrived we were seated immediately and the waitress got our drink order quickly- it was a promising start, and we were excited since the place got such good reviews. My husband said his egg's benedict was good. I got the breakfast sandwich on croissant- it was greasy, and the "turkey bacon" turned out to be turkey bacon bits... More

Notch top is by far the best place to get breakfast in Estes Park! They have a huge menu and lots of options. They have a lot of gluten free and vegetarian options. I will certainly come back!

We went for breakfast. The restaurant smelled like mold (that should have been our first clue). I ordered 2 scrambled eggs with cheese and a side of fruit. He ordered over medium eggs with hash browns and toast. His eggs came out really runny so he asked for a new plate with the correctly cooked eggs. They took it back... More

Wish we had more days to visit so we could eat there again. Great variety on the menu, so many interesting things. Large portions that could easily be shared, but I 'm glad we didn't ...wasn't giving mine up and neither was my husband.

As our motel was not offering breakfast, we tried Notchtop. Good food, good service, good view on the Notchtop Mountain. But it was a bit pricey: 28$ for two without anything extraordinary ordered.

We tried several breakfast restaurants in Estes Park. Notchtop was by far the best. The portions are large. The service is good. I had the french toast sandwich. It was really good.
