Both the leaves and the temperatures are falling in Estes Park and to help stay warm, both inside and out, we’ll be enjoying some of these hot beverages in town this fall! Whether you want just a regular cup of black coffee or want to indulge your taste buds with flavorful creations, be sure to check out these hot spots for a hot drink!
Inkwell & Brew
Inkwell & Brew is the perfect place to get both a hot cup of coffee and a hand-crafted greeting card or journal as it’s both a coffeehouse and stationary shop! Inside, you’ll find unique writing accessories while you sip on your house-made cappuccino or latte. You might want to accompany your coffee with a biscotti or macaroon!
With daily specials like the white rabbit, white chocolate and caramel, or a pumpkin pie latte, Mocha Angelos serves up delicious cappuccinos, lattes, and mochas. They also have hot cocoas on the menu and a fall favorite – hot cider.
Known for organic and environmentally-friendly coffees, Kind Coffee has an impressive meu with coffee drinks, sodas and teas, and smoothies. Some of the popular choices for fall include the Mexican hot chocolate, the crème brulee seasonal drink, or the s’mores drink with an espresso base and chocolate, marshmallow, and cinnamon shots.
Biking and coffee enthusiasts love Via, a bicycle café, in Estes Park to get their caffeine fix or shop for biking apparel. You can’t go wrong with an espresso from Via or taste the flavors of the fall season with the apple cider chai. You’ll probably be tempted to pair your drink with one of their house-made cookies or a donut from Donut Haus!
Elkins Distilling Co.
Add some kick to your hot drink of choice at Elkins Distilling Co.! Try the hot toddies made with their apple spiced liqueur or go off-menu and inquire about their hot chocolate recipe made with house-infused fig whisky!
The Rock Inn
Since 1937, The Rock Inn has been a popular spot for music and fun in Estes Park and it continues that tradition today with its lineup of live performances and fantastic menu with local flavors and ingredients. They have a great wine list, selection of craft beers, and local spirits and one of the best drinks on the menu is a hot cocktail – the salted caramel coffee! It’s got coffee liqueur from a distillery in our neighboring town of Lyons as well as caramel, salt, and whipped cream!
