Wonderful location, and food is good but a bit pricey for what you get. There is a big gift shop there for visitors. Lots of hiking trails in the area and a campground across the street. Entrance to Mt Evans is just up the road!

Food was generous and service was very friendly. We saw dozens of hummingbirds right outside window at a feeder. It's a perfect stop by Echo Lake and great to stop at on the way up Mt. Evans. Gift shop on premises.

A great stopping place before heading up to Mount Evans or on your way back down to down. The gift shop has plenty of options to choose from including many unique souvenirs and Christmas ornaments. The best part is the restaurant and food. A great...More

After driving up from Idaho Springs towards Mt. Evans, be sure to stop here for a body break (since restrooms at the top less refined) for low-priced souvenirs and the low-down from staff and fellow shoppers.
