4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Notchtop offers free Wi-Fi along with great food. Plenty of parking and rarely a wait. Service is sometimes slow, however

We had lunch there on Friday, best gumbo i ever had. Excellent food and service, that we stopped again on Sunday to get their cinnamon rolls to take home.

“If you are looking for vreat food above all else, Notchtop is Top Notch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

We ate breakfast here three days in a row on our trip. They serve generous portions but prices are very reasonable. They have a dozen varieties of lattes and cappucinos to choose from and come in large mugs. I reccommend either the vanila or cinnamon and brown sugar cappucinos. Breakfasts are too numerous too mention but we tried something different every day. The menu is a little overwhelming but the plus side is there is something for everyone. They do great omelettes and waffles. Also juevos rancheros and eggs benedict are delicious. The only drawback is the decor. Has not been updated in many years. But the staff is friendly and they also have outdoor seating. Highly recommend!

“Amazing food- great staff- will definitely be going back!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Went with my husband and children over a very busy Memorial Day weekend. We were a little concerned when we walked in and saw the place packed, expecting a long wait with two very tired and hungry children, but we were greeted right away by the owner (nice to see an owner actually working their business just as hard as any other employee). When we ordered our server asked if it would be helpful if she brought our kids food out before ours if it was ready- as anyone with kids, especially on vacation, will tell you this was definitely welcome. The wait was a little longer than expecting for my husband and my food, not surprising considering the holiday weekend, but wow was it worth the wait! My husband took the servers advice and ordered a burger that was by far the best we'd tried on our visit and I had the HOMEMADE cinnamon roll French toast that the owner had baked that morning- unbelievable! Kind of sad we have to fly out tomorrow because there were other dishes I was dying to try. Next time we're through Estes Park Notchtop will definitely be a must stop!
