This is a good place to direct shoppers while you walk to the top. Nice large store with a restaurant to sit an enjoy the view. If you need a break stop here.

My husband and I ordered the BBQ pork sandwich. My parents ordered the chili. Everything was the appropriate temp and tasted great! It was perfect after a long day of hiking and exploring RMNP!
