Great little place. Every table has a great view of the landscape. Very unusual construction. Huge tree trunks with windows cut in to the logs. Well worth a stop when driving highway 12 in Utah

Coming down from Capital Reef on 12 there's not much. So, when we saw this my wife had to have a decaf espresso and they actually had it. Prices are reasonable for where it is and the bakery goods and sandwiches looked scrumptious! A must...More

We stopped in here to wait out a rain storm. Very pleasant atmosphere and remarkable view even in the rain. You should include this a stop on any trip to GSENM.

I didn't end up having any coffee when we were here because it was too late in the day. I loved the building, the view, the ambience. I just wanted to hang out here for a while. Definitely worth stopping by.

Highway 12 is a spectacular drive and the Kiva Koffeehouse is the perfect spot to stop between Bryce and Capitol Reef! The coffee is great and the views are even better! I enjoyed it so much that I bought one of their mugs.

Kiva is a truly special location with great food. The outdoor patio is delightful and the ambiance of the restaurant is very unique. Highly recommended for breakfast and lunch

This is much more than a coffee house. They have a breakfast and lunch menu, that while limited, will meet your needs. It sits on the side of a mountain and has fantastic views from all windows.
