The three mornings that we were there we had good coffee and danishes for before our hikes or drive up Trial Ridge. Excellent service in the AM but when the visiting guest arrived the lines tended to get long especially after tours. The folks running it did their best to help each one but would get a little overwhelmed with... More

This place is busy busy busy but we were seated right away. The menu selection is outrageously big and the prices are reasonable. I had the Lindsay's favorite poppy chicken wrap and my daughter had chicken tenders and we were both happy with our choices. The server was kind and attentive. I didn't have dessert but the selection was abundant!... More

Don't let the shopping center strip location fool you! Notchtop a Bakery and Cafe has an extensive breakfast and lunch menu with fresh ingredients. Try the Day After Thanksgiving sandwich - delicious! Homemade potato chips. Potato latkes. Cinnamon rolls, homemade.

We went to Notchtop Bakery & Cafe after two days camping. It was a wonderful treat after our camping cooking. Their food potions are big so enough to fill our empty stomach. The cafe is nice and clean and menu has a lot of options--for vegetarians and meat eaters. Totally recommend this cafe.

Every aspect of our Notchtop experience was average with the exception of the service which was good. The dining area is typical casual breakfast hole-in-the-wall and the food was unremarkable. It wasn't bad by any means it just wasn't memorable.

This place is in the strip mall near the Safeway grocery store & Stanley hotel, but don't be fooled by the tucked away location, this is a wonderful stop for a meal. We visit Estes Park every summer and stop her multiple times. Seriously, after a hike stop by for their smoothies and frozen lemonades, THEY ARE AMAZING! Great soup... More

During our stay in Estes Park we ate at many restaurants but i'd have to say that Notchtop was our favorite! The food was excellent. I had the Dragons Egg Rock Benedict with a side of hash browns. Everything was cooked to perfection and the benedict had an amazing sweet and spicy zing to it! My husband had the banana... More

We had breakfast at this cute little cafe twice. The first time our food was excellent: served piping hot and very delicious. The next day we returned, and this time the food was barely warm and pretty average. They seemed really short-staffed too. I might try it again in the future . . . if other options aren't available.

We went here because of the view. The food was better than the other reviews paint it. The coffee was as reviewed; medium roast, not acidic and pleasant to sip. Matt had a mango smoothly that he reports as worth a refill Brough had the chicken waffles and really loved the cheese melted into it. Matt had the Strawberry Cheesecake... More

This was such a great breakfast spot in Estes Park that we ate there both mornings we were there. Lots of healthy, unique and delicious options, most of which can be made vegetarian or vegan (yay for tofu!). The coffee was great too. Highly recommend! Just wish they were open for dinner because dinner options in EP are pretty crappy.
