“if you like rude this is the place for you”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2011

the manager was very rude to us, when we unknowingly sat at "his" tables without ordering something from his place, I was planning on ordering some yogurt from there after finishing up a sandwich, (had my older parents with us that needed to sit down for a bit) needless to say I wont be getting yogurt or anything else from there in any return trip. I could really understand that it was an issue if he had lots of cutomers waiting around for tables but not busy at all. thank goodness its rare to find that behavior in estes park!

, Owner at Shakes Alive! Fruit Shakes, responded to this review, June 23, 2012
When asked if they were planning on coming in to look at the menu for dessert, this family of 9 with our chairs pulled all around 2 tables that say "for Shakes Alive customers only" laughed and said "No!". We politely told them they would need to move since it was during our prime business hours and our tables are reserved for guests only. They were never our customers and specifically told us they did not intend to be, however still left negative a review!?! And yes, they are "our" tables and chairs.

“Best little shop in Estes Park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2010

My sister & I visited Estes Park for a short vacation and found this little nook. It ended up being our favorite place. We had breakfast & lunch twice here during our stay. The staff was super nice. The shop is small, but I personally enjoyed it! If we ever go back to Estes Park, the first place we go will be to Shakes Alive!

“Great sandwiches, shake was great.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2010

This shop is right behind the McDonalds, so if you're on this side of downtown (closer to Stanley Hotel), definitely stop. The strawberry-peach "crowned" shake was great. Sandwiches were a surprise - better than just a deli sandwich. Made on ciabatta buns, served with a mini salad, chips and a cute little pretzel between the sandwich halves. The chocolate mint was a nice touch.

“Awesome smoothies but skip everything...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2010 via mobile

Awesome smoothies but skip everything else. My food review matches the previous post about bland taste, warmed not toasted, etc. Smoothed was super fantastic
