Nothing like relaxing after (or before) a great hike in this beautiful, overlooking the Escalante River canyon, with an excellent cup of coffee and great pastries. Worth a visit just to see the place.

Fantastic vistas of the Escalante River dozens of feet below. Fine coffee shop at a remote location. Small number of rooms available for rental.

The ladies who work at the Kiva Koffeehouse are very nice. The views from the koffeehouse are nice. The koffeehouse itself is an interesting building. However, the food was quite ordinary. We stopped for lunch on a very busy day. Our sandwiches were nothing special. I think this place benefits somewhat from the fact that there are very few places... More

I admit, we only used the facility for a toilet-break. However, this place looked beautiful and offers what you wish for in a coffee-house. Fantastic terrace outside overlooking a beautiful valley

Another excellent stay at a favourite place of ours. This time we took another couple, Aussies, with us so we booked the whole place! Fantastic and remote, special and romantic place. The kiva, where the two rooms are is exquisite, very roomy and appropriately furnished. Superb to watch the Sun go down! The breakfast was superb. The two men enjoyed... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch, our specialty coffee and the view at Kiva Koffeehouse. I made my first purchase of our vacation here, a pair of Turquoise Earrings. They are BEAUTIFUL! Another week down the road in our travels I found the exact pair by the same artisan in Sedona, Arizona. Much to my surprise the earrings were $80 instead... More

We stopped at this hard-to-see place tucked into the canyon side for breakfast on our way out of Escalante. Amazing construction and views, it is a tourist destination in itself. On top of all that it was some of the best food and definitely the best coffee we had had in days of traveling. Then you sit and enjoy it... More

Don't let that nondescript exterior fool ya, folks! Driving by, all you see are cars parked up on a hill in the middle of nowhere -- if they didn't have a big sign out on the highway, you would never know it was there. I can't stress enough how special, and what a landmark, this place is! The entrance, and... More

Leave it to me to find coffee in the middle of nowhere! We found this unique place between Torrey Utah and Bryce Canyon National Park. The coffee was excellent and they also offer little sweets and a lunch menu. ( Not really sure about breakfast or dinner.) The view is a treat as well! If you "jones" for coffee, like... More

NIce stop on the scenic route 12. Felt a little rushed when they asked us to go outside to finish our coffe so they could close and attend a harvest festival at 5.
