Nice Sunday Brunch

We saved this place for our last full day in Estes because they advertise a Sunday Brunch. We're glad we went. Lots of good food, decent service (it WAS a brunch after all) and a really nice view. Good variety of food, and the desserts alone were worth it. $20 per person is not a bad price. It was... read more

We ate on the cafe side. Hubs got the Elk burger and he saiid it was fantastic. I wanted a triple decker BLT but got a club despite my request. The waitress was "ok" but not overly accommodating

Very good food. Friendly service. With the $10.00 Rocky Mountain Card, you buy one entrée and get up to $8.00 off second entrée. Unlimited uses.

My ladyfriend and I wanted to get together after not seeing each other for a while and chose this as it is a nice restaurant (kind of like the kind you would take your grandma to) and enjoyed the view of the trees etc. while eating. The food was ordinary, and did not come out of the kitchen in a... More

Would definitely return. My whole family enjoyed the food. The server was a liitle too busy, but was pleasant and polite. My husband got a breakfast skillet which was delicious. My daughter loved the breakfast burrito. Good diner type food.

The breakfast is delicious with very fresh ingredients.....and I go there regularly and love the menu choices.....always had a wonderful experience! I highly recommend the Sunday brunch or just ordering off the menu either is great....it's a nice place for two or a group...but definitely make reservations....it's a win win for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Enjoy!

We stopped in here because other places were full and there is a reason why, our service was good but not very knowledgable of the menu items. The whole downstairs upstairs menu is wired and confusing when you enter. Above all our group had 4 different entree's and all were very bland.

Great breakfast before heading to Trail Ridge Road. We like the trout, and ingredients are really flesh.

I recommended this as a place to eat with family and was very disappointed. Had been there several times in the past, most recently two years ago. Still a nice setting, but was surprised to find it almost empty, now I know why. The service was mediocre and the food worse. The cocktails we ordered did not come out until... More

Great restaurant with a nice variety of meals. Situated close to the entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park as well as adjoining stores and super market. Large windows with a view of the mountains, and adjoining pond and excellent place to have a meal and view wildlife including frequent visits by bull/cow and baby elk.
