Ate here two days in a row. The menu gives you a lot of different options including gluten free and vegetarian. The portions were large and the service was very friendly. They seem to be always busy. There is only one restroom for the women so you usually have to wait in a line. If you eat on the patio... More

We ate at the Notchtop for lunch as we wanted a place that was easy to park and had outdoor seating. Once we walked in and noticed they had air conditioning, my husband opted for indoors. We were seated right away as it was after the main lunch crowd and ordered a bison burger. It was awesome, cooked just right... More

This restaurant isn't quite as "American" as it would appear from the door or even from the menu. There was corn in the chicken salad sandwich and the chicken in it was very finely shredded. There was a heavy dose of curry in the cream of spinach soup. The falafal sandwich was good although messy. Prices were a bit high... More

We really enjoyed our breakfast here. The corned beef hash is freshly made and definitely not the greasy stuff from a can. The fresh hot cinnamon rolls are amazing also. The service was great and timely. Everything tasted great and was of good quality.

We had great food here last year and decided to go again for this year's vacation. It was great! We are here three times this week. We had a variety of plates with eggs, meats etc. and it was all very good. They DO have gluten free pancakes- YAY! Breakfast ran around $22 each day for the two of us.... More

I found this gem on a recent trip to Estes Park. It is hidden away in the complex where the Safeway is located. The service was great and the food was fantastic. The fruit and yogurt was fresh and just the way to start the day.

Wow! I honestly don't think I've had a breakfast better than this. AWESOME! They used the best quality ingredients and don't leave you disappointed! We got the veggie scramble with egg whites, American breakfast, and the 3-2-1 with turkey bacon egg whites and an upgraded my pancake to a blueberry granola. Definite must go!! And our server Judith was great... More

By no means is this place the best I have ever eaten at, but their staff is kind and the food is great. There are tons of choices and they serve breakfast all day. My only complaint is that I my waitress rushed me through breakfast by bringing out my check before I have 1/3 into my meal. I also... More

My family and I ate here for lunch around noon after horseback riding. We were starving and the menu offered a wide variety of healthy options. Our server was nice but seemed very hurried, spending mere seconds at each of her tables. I got the poppyseed chicken salad and my parents got the poppyseed chicken wrap. Both include seasoned grilled... More
