We were pleasantly surprised at how delish the pancakes were. The view is amazing and it was nice to have a nibble before our hike.

We stopped here for coffee and a cookie - the view is to die for and the sunshine provided is amazing. Delicious cookies would go back.

Extraordinary view of the Kissing Camels at the Garden of the Gods. Service was exceptional and the breakfast burritos were awesome!

The food is simple but tasty. Mostly hamburgers and such. I had a cheeseburger and my partner had the elk brats. Then we shared fries. Can't beat the view sitting outside. Love this area. The nature center is wonderful to visit to get all kinds of information about the park.

we were the first ones in the restaurant for breakfast and they had a ton of staff but we couldn't get waited on. When we did get waited on it was slow and my coffee cup was empty... I had to ask for coffee refills twice. The food is very good but the service for my visit was lack luster.

My wife had the barbecue sandwich but the elk brat caught my eye. It was very tasty. Both were on nice rolls.

First the food: it's a step above what one might expect to get at a visitor center cafe. Everything was pretty solid. The bread/bun was actually quite good. And the prices were not bad considering the context. But it is the setting that makes the experience. First the visitor center is a great place to spend some time. There is... More
