Stopped for lunch, which was a sandwich and a fruit smoothy. Sandwich was a little skimpy ham and cheese, smoothy was good. Overpriced to my way of thinking, but quick and the smoothy was tasty.

The food here was absolutely delicious and the customer service was superb! Although they were quite busy, we were asked multiple times how we were doing and whether we needed anything else. Our sandwiches were good, as well as the amazing salads. Our kids weren't sure what they wanted to order, so the owners offered to make them a BLT... More

I love the smoothies they serve. Delicious and satisfying. The sandwiches and salads are tasty and very generous in size. The owners work to serve you in a friendly and efficient manner, while offering all fresh-to-order smoothies and food.

This is a great alternative to the fast food places nearby and we like to support the local businesses whenever possible. Shake's Alive is a small place with only a booth for inside seating that looks like it would seat 4 adults. There are tables and chairs outside and the perfect place to be on a beautiful Colorado day! Our... More

Delicious, simple sandwiches ($5.50) and fresh fruit smoothies ($5). Added chips for $1 to mine and "made it a lunchbox" for $2 for my husband's. Lovely presentation, filling, tasty food and a great value! I love finding gems like this rather than eating at a national chain

had a acai, blackberry smoothie and it was fantastic. Daughter had the same with added protein. DId not know that they added yogurt frozen to the drink, as my daughter has lactose problems. We found out 1 hour later.....oh my. Would be good to know all ingredients added for those with dairy issues. Smoothies are excellent however.

My family and I have visited Shakes Alive on two different trips. We went in 2014 and in 2016. Two years passed and the small little cafe continues to provide exactly what we wanted. I'm a health oriented person so when I heard they had smoothies, I was convinced. When we walked in, I learned that they have a fat... More

We stopped here because my daughter loves smoothies. We were not at all disappointed. These may be the best smoothies we have tried anywhere. The place is small, but clean and organized. The staff was wonderful, very friendly, engaging, and fun. We ended getting sandwiches to pack for our excursion into RMNP. The sandwiches were all very good and the... More

Shakes Alive has a large selection of smoothies, sandwiches, and salads. It is very small but the service behind the counter and the food was excellent.

Thank John K
