We were in Estes Park the first week of October. Drove by the shop several times and each time it was closed. Didn't matter what time of the day: early morning, late afternoon, midday. I was highly disappointed because I was curious about the Chicken Fried Latte. Giving an "Average" review because it looks like it's still in business and... More

It is the perfect place for amid afternoon coffee break or a light supper. The outside seating is beautiful and it wasn't crowded. All the drinks we got impressed us.

This is a great little place for coffee. Very slow service though, but still far more charming than Starbucks. Plus, you can sit out on the water. Looks like they also serve alcohol at night, so it would be a great place for a drink later in the day.

The coffee was like warm and it was more water then coffee. Every coffee place I have been they give me free heavy cream but here, they charge you a $1.00. They are hardly open. Very inconsistent.

I saw the sign for a chicken fried latte and knew I had to have it. I'm so glad we stopped by, because it was delicious. Yes, it's a frozen drink but the snow on the ground didn't stop me from ordering it. We also tried a hot latte, but it was too sweet for my tastes. The workers inside... More

We were excited to try this place because we had been given a coupon book by our lodging which had a dollar off of their "famous" Chicken Fried Latte (CFL). When we got there (on my birthday) there was a sign of all of their coffee drinks with a note that the CFL ONLY came FROZEN because of it's ingredients.... More

Thank you for stopping in and taking the time to write. The Chicken Fried Latte is our own iteration of the frozen latte and is only offered that way due to the use of fresh peanut butter. You cannot make it into a hot drink that is anywhere near the taste. It's really a shame you didn't try the Chicken... More

We stopped by SummitView Coffee for a little pick me up in the afternoon. My husband ordered a medium coffee and I ordered a small hot chocolate. It was a little over $5. My husband's coffee came out lukewarm. I was hopeful mine would be okay because she had to make it from scratch. I was wrong. Mine was barely... More

As you can see, this is not par for the course and I wish you would have brought it to the manager's attention immediately so that we would have an opportunity to rectify rather than going straight to writing a 1-star review on Tripadvisor. If you are a regular at the store, you know the pride we have in serving... More

Need a lot of a great latte with interesting flavors? This is the place! Nice to support a local business and the drive-thru kiosks are convenient.

Thank you GlacierParkLover for taking the time to review your visit! I too am a great fan of Glacier and believe it to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. As you probably saw, most of our drink names are based on animals you'd find in the various national parks. Thank you for giving us the opportunity! Be... More

As luck would have it, we have a drink matching the title of your review- the Cherry Bomb. It was created by Amanda, our very first employee. How can you go wrong with dark chocolate and cherry?

Loved the chicken friend latte. Definitely tasted banana in it. My daughter had iced red raspberry tea. Both were great. The service was fast and friendly. I would be a regular customer of this place is I lived in EP. Good thing I'm not because a daily chicken fried latte would destroy my waistline! But they are soooo good and... More

Ah, the Chicken Fried Latte(tm) strikes again! People taste many things and some of them are spot on. Thank you for the review and for taking the Chicken Fried plunge. Glad your daughter loved the iced tea. We make them fresh at the time of order. Be well and we'll see you soon. More
