I stopped here with my mom just prior to heading into RMNP. It was just after the restaurant opened for the morning and we got a seat next to a window that overlooked the incredible mountain scenery. The rustic atmosphere of the restaurant was just perfect. It was nice and quiet as there were only two other tables in use at this time. We enjoyed a nice meal - buckwheat pancakes, french toast, juice and coffee. Our server, Ramesh was most attentive and friendly. It was great that Rocky Mountain Gateway (information center) was adjacent as I had several questions about the park, hiking trails, road conditions, etc.
