“Chicken Fried deliciousness!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Loved the chicken friend latte. Definitely tasted banana in it. My daughter had iced red raspberry tea. Both were great. The service was fast and friendly. I would be a regular customer of this place is I lived in EP. Good thing I'm not because a daily chicken fried latte would destroy my waistline! But they are soooo good and I'll definitely return for one when we go back to EP. Thank you!

Ah, the Chicken Fried Latte(tm) strikes again! People taste many things and some of them are spot on. Thank you for the review and for taking the Chicken Fried plunge. Glad your daughter loved the iced tea. We make them fresh at the time of order. Be well and we'll see you soon.

“Chicken?”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

I swear for a second I tasted chicken in that latte. Is there really chicken in it. Otherwise excellent friendly and fun. And if there is chicken, you ordered it, lol

There's only one way to find out what's in the Chicken Fried and we thank you for taking the plunge. We really need to start recording the facial expressions of people who take their first-ever sip for they are priceless. Most go WHOAAAA THAT'S INCREDIBLE!!! and I'm not making that up. Thank you for the review. We look forward to your next visit.

“Great coffee; great hot chocolate; great service.”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

If I had such a great view of the mountains from my workplace, I'd probably be this happy and friendly, too. The staff was friendly and conversational; and helpful with some questions about the town and activities while we waited on our drinks. The coffee was great - I had one of their specialty lattes, and it was delicious, and the kids really enjoyed the hot chocolate. Worth the stop.

Thank you for the review highlighting our service, the quality and the views. When the winter arrives and on those odd quiet moments in the summer, peering up to the continental divide is quite a motivator. The scene changes ever day. We look forward to seeing you again and will have the hot chocolate ready!

“GREAT, friendly service”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Their coffee was EXCELLENT. Their breakfast burritos upset my husband's stomach, but mine was fine. I think it may have had beans in it.

“Put this on your list of MUST VISITS in Estes!!!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

I must start this review with the truth. I've been a long time visitor of Starbucks, got the gold card and everything (those who frequent Starbucks know what I mean). With that being said, I tried SummitView based on recommendations from Tripadvisor, and my expectations were exceeded. Friendly service and great coffee. I only visited them three times and they recognized me on the third trip. And if you like peanut butter/chocolate frozen goodness, try the chicken fried latte, you won't be disappointed. Needless to say, Starbucks has my heart (and wallet) when I'm home, but SummitView has me addicted when I visit Estes Park!

As funny as it sounds, we too were gold-card holding, Starbucks lovers for years! They pioneered this business so we are thankful they opened the door for us to improve upon the idea. Reviews like yours are the realization of the attention to detail and outside-the-box thinking necessary to compete in a market with such high standards. The Chicken Fried Latte(tm) is worth driving for and we have customers who state they drive here just for it whenever the question of "where should we go today" comes up. We often recognize them and as you saw, enjoy good conversation and smiles. We look forward to your next visit. Thank you!
