We went for coffee early before our hike and sat by the pond watching the ducks. We're rather picky about our coffee, but both of us enjoyed it here. Their baked goods were also tasty.

Had to stop at this place during our Estes Park visit. Yummy white mocha on a cool day. Nice lake view.

I enjoyed sitting and watching the ducks on the pond. The coffee was better than Starbucks. Sandwiches were great! Service and friendliness outstanding. A beautiful spot to enjoy the gorgeous mountains of the Rocky Mountain National Park. A wide variety of people were there each of the three days that I dropped in.

My husband and I had heard about Coffee on the Rocks, but we did not visit there until this past September while in Estes Park. Josh and his wife bought this restaurant, I believe they told us, in May 2015. The coffee is wonderful and the breakfast wraps are handmade fresh upon order, and they are absolutely fantastic. Josh is... More

After you have shopped, climbed the mountains, walked the trails, and driven the scenic roads, it is time to relax! This is a quaint little place tucked away off the road right next to The Big Thompson. Very cozy inside. But it is fun to sip your coffee and watch the lucky ducks on this pond just swim the day...

Stumbled across this little coffee shop in December 2014 (one of the few places that were open in the low season). Went back there in September while we were in town for the Long's Peak Scottish Highlands Festival. In December, there were 4 or 5 elk grazing on the lawn. In September, we sat by the pond and enjoyed our... More

Tucked in next to a pond just off the Big Thompson River. They offer three coffees of the day and a good selection of the usual coffee drinks. Operated by some good local folks that do a fine job. Seating inside is ample, but the joy is in the outside seating around the pond -- populated with a flock of... More

Coffee on the Rocks is a splendid coffee shop with a spectacular setting and superb eats. Adirondack chairs and benches surround a pond where you can sip your coffee and enjoy the scenery and the wildlife. Everything from quaking Aspen to ducks, deer, elk and moose can be spotted as you sip! Enjoy!
