“The Food with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

We love Westcliffe. We go there a half a dozen times a year or more. We have eaten in all the restaurants in town, and the Cafe in the Bowling center never fails to please. The view of the Wet Mountians is awesome from the dining room. The posters on the wall of all the movies made in the valley. And the very friendly staff make for a very pleasant dining experience. The Reuben and the smothered burritos are tops on my list. They also have a pretty decent kids menu. After you eat you can bowl a game or your kids can run off the meal outside at the park across the street. As you look towards the east to the downtown area. Take a moment to Imagine what it must of been like 120 years ago. Almost every building there the materials came up the trail in a horse drawn wagon. What it must have been like to come from the crowded cities of the East and Europe and to come to this valley that seems to go on forever must have been awe inspiring!

“Great selection at great prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The Cafe serves meals all day long and the food is very good and moderate in price. The Cafe is adjacent to the entertainment center and it makes it very convenient for people on the go.

“Great burgers and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

This little cafe is located in the bowling alley, across the street from the grocery store on Main Street. The hambergers are yummy, and the waitress is friendly and happy to tell you more about Westcliffe if you ask. The cook has your food out to you in record time. Pretty view of the mountains from the booths at the west end of the cafe. And the prices are also good. If I lived in Westcliffe, I'd eat there regularly.

“Nice place to get a quick bite to eat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

A nice little diner in the Westcliffe bowling alley. Perhaps a little on the expensive side for the type of food served, but other then that we very much enjoyed it.
