Fresh ingredients and wonderful selection made this the best breakfast during our trip. The blueberry muffin was exceptional along with the wonderful oatmeal. Cave Man hash was delicious.

We visited NotchTop twice during our stay. Their breakfasts are amazing. I agree with others that the wait staff isn't the friendliest, but the food makes it all worthwhile.

This is the best breakfast spot on Estes Park. The food was perfect..the homemade muffins were outstanding and the coffee was probably the best cup I had during my vacation to Colorado. I even went back the following day just to get a carry out coffee and muffins. You must enjoy this place for breakfast!

Remember you are going for the food not the staff. They are not the friendliest so, don't go expecting them to be. Do expect good food.

They have a vast menu and all of their... More

We have enjoyed many delicious breakfasts here. Good food, fast service, good prices. My husband was a bit disappointed the cheese wasn't inside his omelet. But everything tastes great!

Ha lunch here a few times, the parking is not good and if you have a camper they will run you off from the parking lot, signs EVERYWHERE with parking rules. They try to please the staff is attentive, if you want basic food be sure and tell them because they season everything with spice and herbs. Won't go back... More

My wife and I had breakfast here because they advertised tons of gluten free options. I ended up ordering the gluten free blueberry pancakes and a side of steel cut oatmeal. Truthfully, I can make better gluten free pancakes at home and the oatmeal wasn't anything special.

So the cafe itself was really cute! The staff was really friendly and welcoming. The food however was pretty average. My husband had the gluten free pancakes and they were kind of dry. I had the banana chocolate chip pancakes, which were smothered in WAY TOO MUCH chocolate. They were pretty good, not too dry, and very thick. My other... More

Thanks for visiting us this summer. Your husband didn't like our gluten free pancakes, I'm sorry about that, we are the only place which serves gluten free pancake in town, I make my batter from scratch, and high altitude affects it a lot, your husband wrote that he could make better pancakes at home, please share your recipe with us...
