Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My go-to spot for breakfast, brunch, or lunch. As a single person who doesn't like to spend a lot of time with food - shopping, cooking, keeping the pets off the table, cleaning up - I appreciate the service and the variety of food from...French toast to salads and soup to burgers and specialty sandwiches. I am never disappointed and I enjoy talking to the owners and staff. Plenty of close parking. If youAl go once, you'll be sure to come back again.More

We have been in Estes Park for over 40 years and have observed many restaurants come and go. Mountain Home Cafe has 'staying power' because every menu item we've tried is consistently excellent. Likewise, the warm, personal, friendly service. We especially love their homemade soups...and occasional specialty Mexican dishes.More

We stopped in to try this cafe when our typical cafe was completely full and we're really glad we branched out and tried Mountain Home Cafe. Service was pretty good and we were able to be seated quickly. Our food was tasty overall and came...out from the kitchen quickly. The prices were also pretty good here and it's a nice option for breakfast in Estes Park.More
