“Delicious shakes, nice people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Their milkshakes are delicious and huge. Was a little concerned about the price but each is enough for two people. Be sure to pick up a bag of their yogurt pretzels; they're the best I've ever tasted!

Love the shakes and the bagels. Great place to fuel up before heading into Rocky Mointain National Park!

“Terrific lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

The staff here greeted my husband and I very warmly--they were all so nice! We ordered two vegan sandwiches and a fruit shake with a soy protein shot. Our food was brought to us very quickly. The sandwich meal was delicious, very fresh! The shake was the best ever! We got asked how everything was and if we needed anything several times, which was really nice. Shakes Alive is definitely worth the money!

“Great smoothies and shakes....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

My family loves Shakes Alive so we go once a day while we are on vacation in Estes Park. We go after a hike or for dessert. Their fruit shakes are very tasty and there are two dozen flavor combinations to choose from. You can get a shake, smoothy, malt, and even sandwiches. The food is tasty and the service is always friendly. There are a few tables on the outdoor patio as well. I highly recommend trying a fruit shake/smoothy during your stay. It is a must while on vacation during the summer months.

“What a surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

This is a tiny shop but don't let the size sway you. Shakes and smoothies are fantastic! Sandwiches and wraps were ample and included a small salad and chips! Very tasty. They are very knowledgeable about gluten free foods and offered several choices. Definitely a place to stop and try.
Also a little gift shop.
