We had both great and bad experiences here for several breakfasts and lunches. The food and service varied from superb to poor. It really seemed to depend on the personnel on duty at the time. Liz, the consciencious manager, is outstanding and will fix anything.

Menu limited but adequate. The Navajo Taco was huge and delicious. Convenient to your site-seeing in the park.

Our group of 35 enjoyed breakfast here. They had a variety, pretty much anything you would want. There is a great view if you are lucky enough to get a table by the front glass. Workers were not friendly.

I had a coupon for a free breakfast thanks to a terrible experience at the Metate Room the night before. Not wanting to repeat that experience there I used the coupon at the cafeteria. It was just about empty and the cook stuggled to make an omelet. It was so bad he was going to throw it out but I... More

My husband loved the Navaho Taco and I was pleased just to have some iced tea and yoghurt. The views are what make this place special, I'm sure you can see several states from this well-placed cafeteria.

Slightly disorganized staff was cheerful even at the end of season, and food better than we expected. It's not an imaginative menu but a tasty one nonetheless.

Aramark runs this facility in Mesa Verde. It is located approximately 16 miles inside the park boundary. It serves buffet-style breakfast and lunch with a southwestern flair. Views from the windows are impressive at sunrise.

After a disappointing dinner that the lodge restaurant we decided to give the cafeteria a try instead. It's good food for what you pay inside the park, but don't expect anything fancy, this is a sandwich / wraps / flatbread type place. It does have a nice view and the staff was very pleasant.

After our tour in Mesa Verde Mational Park, we stopped for lunch at Far View Terrace Restaurant. It is cafeteria style, and lines can be long when tour busses arrive. The dining room is large and bright with windows with great views. My husband had a flatbread pizza which he enjoyed. My fresh fruit cup was delicious. We had a... More
