We ate here for a late breakfast before heading into the park and it was delicious and very filling. I had gluten free blueberry granola pancakes and they were very light and fluffy with a nice portion. My husband had one of the dragon specialty Benedict and really enjoyed it.

This restaurant has great food. The service was exceptional...waitress answered all of our questions perfectly. We had 8 people and 1 baby and our food was served hot and plated beautifully. Will definitely go back next time I am in Estes Park.

The atmosphere is simple and clean. We were there on Thanksgiving morning and thrilled to find them open. They have an extensive menu - really almost anything you can think of for standard breakfast fare - pancakes, oatmeal, omelets, scrambles, breakfast sandwiches, etc. I was thrilled the fruit was fresh fruit - not something out of a jar. The portions... More

We visited Notch Top based on previous visits when this was a different restaurant. Although lacking the charm of the previous restaurant, the meal was ok and the price affordable. The atmosphere lacked the charm I experienced before but was comfortable enough. There were only a few people in the restaurant, mid morning on a Wednesday. The menu offered a... More

Best place we ate during our week in EP. I had the caveman hash and it was awesome. Convenient location, good parking, but come early! Great food and great service!

We stayed in Estes Park for two days and loved Notchtop's breakfast so much that we ate there both mornings. We had a delicious and filling breakfast before we headed out to RMNP. We were able to order turkey sandwiches to go and pack them with us on our hike. We enjoyed our lunch sitting in front of Ouzel Falls,... More

We ate here two days in a row because the food was delicious, the location was super convenient to our motel, and the view of the mountains was superb. All four of us loved what we ordered, including the gluten-free pancakes and sugar-free lattes. Had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated on Sunday morning, but it was well... More
