Description: SummitView Coffee is a very unique coffee shop. Of course we offer traditional coffee, espresso and lattes, but our house special, the Chicken Fried Latte(tm) is a one-of-a-kind blended masterpiece. Add to the above: 16 teas- all available hot or iced, 54 flavors of syrups and sauces, including a number of sugar free options, Gluten Free pastries, locally made chorizo, spicy sausage, bacon or breakfast burritos, locally made bagels on which we put bacon or ham, cheese and egg and above all, attentive, creative barista who will make your visit one to remember!

We come to Estes Park every year as a family. One of our daily stops is at SummitView coffee. We always hope to catch Anthony, the owner, who is a delight to speak with. This is a great stop to grab a cup of Joe, or a large Americano with an extra shot to get the day going, before heading into the park. Try the new pizza bagel with great cheese and sauce. Your taste buds will thank you.

Thank you Jeremy. I recall the conversations and it's always nice to chat with another business owner. Ironically, we always meet up on the days I'm not supposed to be there which means the meetings are meant to be. Thank you for the feedback and suggestions; they are appreciated. Be well, Sir.

This stand is like the last bastion for a caffeine fix as you leave Estes Park to enter RMNP. I stopped here twice to get a Mocha to drink on drives into the park. The drinks were good, tasted like a good coffee drink should and were convenient to access.

Joe, thank you for stopping in for some Joe-to-go and for writing. For years I felt there should be a drive through in Estes Park- specifically, near the entrance. It never came, so we built it. Thank you for frequenting our little shop. We look forward to seeing you again.

If you're looking to walk up or drive through, the coffee drinks we had were good and the service was attentive and friendly.

However, for those searching TripAdvisor for restaurant ratings, you may be surprised, as we were, to find three coffee establishments and a doughnut shop in the top five "restaurants." And, we've enjoyed all of them, and rated them "average" to "very good." But, are they the five best restaurants in Estes Park? Not by a country mile.

That said, it seems that coffee is, or must be, the "food du jour" of Estes Park.

ColoradoDoc, thank you for taking the time to submit a review. I share your sentiments on the lack of division between coffee/snack shops and restaurants. Hopefully, TripAdvisor will divide them at some point in the near future. That said, your review was 3-star. Was that aimed at the lack of delineation in the list containing too many coffee/snack shops or our products and service? If the latter, what could we have improved? Your feedback is valued and acted upon.

The place to go on a cold windy day (or anytime) but the drive thru makes the grade on those wintery days! Great food selection as well!!
