Had breakfast here after we checked out of the Far View Lodge. They had a reasonable selection of stuff for breakfast. The prices were a bit high for the overall quality of the food. The restaurant itself could have been cleaner. Perhaps a few more...More

We stopped for ice cream and a chance to poke in the gift shop. It was a nice break from the heat outside. This is also the only point where we could get cell reception and internet access.

To be fair...we were traveling in mid-October so the operations were winding down. Having said that, it is no excuse for bad expensive food especially when it's the "only game in town" so to speak. For those coming into Mesa Verde National Park food options...More

The Far View Terrace Restaurant has a convenient location. The food is average. Service is also average.

As we visited very late in the season, I don't think that there offerings for breakfast were 100 percent. Staff is friendly. Clean. A bit expensive, but doable as there isn't any other place for breakfast in October when we visited! Gift shop right there!

Watched the sun rise eating breakfast is wonderful here. Lots of breakfast options for everyone here. We all need some good nutrition to take all those tours or go on hikes at Mesa Verde.

We felt stuck eating here, as there was no other decent priced food in the national park. Service was terrible and incredibly slow, food tasted like cardboard, but at least we weren't starving while touring the park.

We loved the oatmeal with added goodies for breakfast, but other meals were not that great. They were shutting down for the season and items were being removed from the menu as the food ran out. Everything we had for lunch (once) and dinner (twice)...More

We thought we'd be safe with hot dogs, bratwurst, salads, and such, but the hot dogs and bratwurst were lukewarm at best, the buns were hard and cold, the salads were wilted and unappetizing. The hot food items were not available until dinner. If you...More
