They DO have vegan cheese - Edit

Note: Unlike what's stated in a previous review, as of Aug 2017, they do have both Daiya cheese and vegan pepperoni.

Poppy's is a treat; cute little place right on the creek. While the only vegan pizza sauce is garlic and olive oil, it's really tasty. (I always ask for light on the garlic/light on the vegan cheese so it's not a grease bomb) We had a family dinner here tonight and everyone loved it. We got vegan pepperoni and roasted red peppers and had plenty of food.

It's not the cheapest pie (our vegan large with three toppings was just under 35 bucks) but right on par for the area and it's a good deal for 4 people considering the local prices and good quality/ambiance.

It's great that they have vegan pepperoni too, plus a yummy hummus pizza too.

Pros: Vegan pepperoni and cheese , great atmosphere

Cons: limited pizza sauces

Disappointed - Edit

Only offers one vegan sauce and no longer serves Daiya vegan cheese for pizza (although it was on the menu). Still offers some vegan options.

Try the hummus pizza and Hellas Lager, sit by the Big Thompson, and watch the critters....if you don't enjoy that, you are broken.

Disappointed and over priced - Edit

As a vegan I did my research before going on vacation. I was very excited about this place they looked like they had several vegan options. But after going to the café and asking questions I found out all their bread contains dairy or egg. Which is misleading because they had a vegan burger on the menu. In their fries are not vegan. After looking at the menu and asking all my questions the only thing you can eat would be a vegan pizza which they do have vegan cheese and a salad or a vegan burger without the buns. The waitress was very nice answering all my questions and making accommodations for me and my vegan husband. I got the vegan burger without the bread which was very plain and not that great. I didn't even finish it I was very disappointed. The next day we went to peppers Mexican Grill and there are so many options for vegans that we went there twice that week it's like a chipotle but better and great prices too. As a vegan there is not a lot of options in this area.

Pros: Offers vegan cheese and pizza

Cons: Over priced for what it was, Misleading menu for vegans, Disappointed was not very good

Need more Vegan sauce Options for the Pizza - Edit

My wife and I (both vegans) were excited to eat here since they offered a non-dairy cheese. They have 4 different sauces that you have on the pizza. Sadly only one of them doesn't contain parmesan cheese. The garlic and Olive oil sauce. I didn't want a sauce with heavy oil and my wife has an allergy to garlic so we had a sauceless pizza with daiya cheese and mushrooms. Additional Toppings and Daiya Cheese are expensive. We also had a wrap with Yves vegan Pepperoni that was really good. Pizza was decent too. Not the best pizza but after a day of hiking at RMNP anything would have tasted good.

Pros: a few different vegan options, great location in downtown estes park

Cons: Expensive for additional toppings, Not enough vegan sauce options

smasheasy 06 Oct 2014 - Yeah, they do need to have a basic marinara with no parm. That'd be easy to do! The pizzas are good, and I'm glad they're venturing further into vegan territory :)

Best option in town - Edit

I was very surprised by how vegan-friendly Poppy's is. The menu clearly denotes what is and is not vegan, they offer Daiya mozz for their pizza, and even serve vegan pepperoni! When I made some more inquiries about available vegan options with the staff they were very knowledgeable and if they didn't know, happily consulted with someone who did. Unfortunately the breads are not vegan so I would stay away from the sandwiches but the pizza dough is fine if you get the garlic and olive oil sauce. The rest contain parmesan. The patio is nice but unfortunately not dog friendly. I had to walk my dog while waiting for our food and halfway through eating just to get her out of the sun (we did not yet have a house to leave her in!) because the manager told us we could not have her inside the fence even though she was just sleeping in the shade. This was after I saw two other dogs inside the fence who were not told to move.

Pros: Good Selection, Clear menu, Knowledgeable staff

Cons: A little pricy for pizza, Not very dog friendly

Make your own *VEGAN* pizza place - Edit

You can create your pizza by choosing size (individual, small, medium or large), crust (gluten-free available or you can substitute crust for shreddded zucchini), sauce (out of 5 is garlic & olive oil the only vegan), choose from wide variety of veggies and you can opt for Daiya cheese on top. The whole family was happy.
Also the menu offers many other vegan and vegetarian meals, including veggie burgers (also many variations), vegetarian sandwich and salads.

Pros: Enough vegan options, Nice outside seating by the river

Good Pizza - Edit

I was pleasantly surprised by this resteraunt. They have a large craft beer selection and a decent amount of vegetarian options as well as a couple vegan. They offer daiya mozzarella to substitute on any pizza and the choice to make any pizza gluten free. There is also a nice salad bar.

Pros: Big Craft Beer Selection, Vegan Options, Vegetarian Options

Great veg pizza options - Edit

The pizza was fantastic with the garlic white sauce. Curiously the other four sauce options had Parmesan cheese so they were out. Vegan burgers on the menu for next time...

Phenomenal beers on tap. Pliney the Eldar? Yes, please!
