The staff was wonderful, very friendly, engaging, and fun. We ended getting sandwiches to pack for our excursion into RMNP. The sandwiches were all very good and the... More

Shakes Alive has a large selection of smoothies, sandwiches, and salads. It is very small but the service behind the counter and the food was excellent.

The smoothies are great ! $5 for a good size. I had a berry one that was really good. My husband had the acai special which he enjoyed too. They have whey and soy protein you can add. By far the best thing we've had in Colorado in a week

I had a chocolate malt made with hot fudge and it was delicious, The staff is very friendly and the ice cream, smoothies and sandwiches are very good, especially after a day of hiking in the RMNP.

My wife had the Tuna (salad) on Tomato Floret salad for a similar price. The food was delicious, fresh and healthy. The owners (brothers)... More

Delicious smoothies and shakes, right next to the McDonald's. My favorite is the Bobcat Berry Blend (? think that's the name...) They also have sandwiches, bagels, etc.

While their shakes etc are sinfully delicious, don't forget to try any of their sandwiches. They are filling and tasty. The staff is friendly and personable; they should be, as it always seems to be run by the owners.
