We ate here during a stay at Far View Lodge. We walked from the lodge (not too bad a walk, but would be difficult for anyone with mobility issues) with our dog, and ate on the back patio so we could be with her. The food is served cafeteria style, so that made it easy for us to take turns... More

We now wish we'd gone to the vegetarian organic cafe along the way. Basic food. Not very tasty at all! Not like me to leave food on my plate. Won't be coming back soon.

We had both great and bad experiences here for several breakfasts and lunches. The food and service varied from superb to poor. It really seemed to depend on the personnel on duty at the time. Liz, the consciencious manager, is outstanding and will fix anything.

Menu limited but adequate. The Navajo Taco was huge and delicious. Convenient to your site-seeing in the park.

Our group of 35 enjoyed breakfast here. They had a variety, pretty much anything you would want. There is a great view if you are lucky enough to get a table by the front glass. Workers were not friendly.

I had a coupon for a free breakfast thanks to a terrible experience at the Metate Room the night before. Not wanting to repeat that experience there I used the coupon at the cafeteria. It was just about empty and the cook stuggled to make an omelet. It was so bad he was going to throw it out but I... More

My husband loved the Navaho Taco and I was pleased just to have some iced tea and yoghurt. The views are what make this place special, I'm sure you can see several states from this well-placed cafeteria.

Slightly disorganized staff was cheerful even at the end of season, and food better than we expected. It's not an imaginative menu but a tasty one nonetheless.

Aramark runs this facility in Mesa Verde. It is located approximately 16 miles inside the park boundary. It serves buffet-style breakfast and lunch with a southwestern flair. Views from the windows are impressive at sunrise.

if you are staying at the Far View lodge, this is your option for a nice, sit-down dinner. food was very good, though service was uneven. We had breakfast and dinner here.
