“Absolutely Delicious Breakfasts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

The food here is incredible! The location is actually in Allenspark, not Estes Park, but I always make a point to go to the Meadow Mountain Cafe when in the area. The omelets are delicious, and the toast made with home-made bread is very tasty. I love omelets, so that's what I always get. The dining area is very small, although there are tables on the porch and outside. I've never had to wait, but it would be well worth it if I did.

“Hidden gem. Great home cooked food and friendly outstanding service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2011

Open 7:30am-2pm everyday, this off the main road eatery on the way to Estes Park, CO, offers great breakfast and lunch menu with some healthy choices. Make their own breads, soups and desserts and will modify to meet your dietary requirements and desires. Huge portions, good prices. Not fancy, rustic and outdoorsy, but oh so good.

“overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2011

I called ahead and asked the price of burgers, I was told $6.95. OK fair enough in this day and age. Later we stopped in and the burgers were $6.95 and for fries, add $1.50, hmm its now up to $8.49
OK we bit and ordered two burgers and two burritos.
When the burgers arrived the meet was the size of a McDonalds plain 99 cent burger and the bun was huge, about twice as big as the burger.
In the end it cost of $45.00 (plus tip) for 2 tiny burgers, 2 fairly plain burritos and 4 cans of coke. Way too expensive in my opinion. Everything tasted fine though but overpriced.

“Don't miss this one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2010

We stopped on 4th of July weekend, right at the rush lunch time, so service was a bit slow, but the staff were so apologetic and did everything they could to make sure our meals were perfect. Fabulous food, wonderful atmosphere, beautiful surroundings. But make sure you have cash.

“Love it or hate it??”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2010

Some of the food is great and made to order, so it can take a while. We went after camping and really hungry. The only thing we really did not like was the gravy was so thick, I do not know how they could consider it a sauce like I am use to. Service is slow, it is okay to wait for food but not coffee!!
