This is one of those unexpected gems that you will miss unless you watch for the signs off Utah 12. Plenty of great parking with an overlook view of the Escalante River and trail. As you sit down to eat or just have coffee you...More

Do NOT miss this! Put it in your GPS so you won't pass by. You can't see the building except the roof even from the parking lot! But there's a big sign on 12, so STOP! The food is good and the views are lovely....More

Loved this little coffee shop in the side of the hill!! What a great atmosphere. Good coffee all in the middle of nowhere. I googled 'best coffee between Bryce and Moab' and this was it and we couldn't be happier with our stop!

We stopped on our way to Boulder and it was a well hidden gem. Coffee was fresh and bold, scones were homemade. Inside and outside seating. Not crowded even though it was Memorial Day Weekend.

Absolute gem on scenic hwy 12. We only had cappuccino which came with double shot of espresso and was delicious. But they do offer sandwiches and some desserts. The view of Escalante is incredible from the outside deck. Definitely recommend to stop by and enjoy...More

Follow the signs and you can't miss it on Highway 12. Great coffee, food and clean restrooms. Million dollar view. There is also a cabin available for rent. Service can be a little slow, but worth it.

I love this place! The drinks and coffees are so good-you won't find the same any where else. And the menu is great, high quality food with a different twist. I went 2 times in 2 days. The view is spectacular! The building is amazing!
