Talk about cute: Coffeecake served inside a mug at Chocolate Moose Royale in Ashton, Idaho

Talk about cute: Coffeecake served inside a mug at Chocolate Moose Royale in Ashton, Idaho

As she hands me my Americano, the barista in Chocolate Moose Royale looks at me expectantly and says, “Let me know if you like it.” Why? “I’ve been told to ask that.” What a concept: Customer satisfaction.

Owner Beth is also willing to help customers concerned about their waistlines. Don’t want a full slice of Ann Oldham’s homemade pie? No problem. You can just order a sliver for $1.65. The inventive baked goods include a red velvet cake and a coffee cake served inside a mug. Enjoy it all in this cozy café inside a restored, century-old hotel in Ashton, Idaho (“World seed-potato capital”), an agricultural town on Highway 20 between Idaho Falls and West Yellowstone.

If you pine for the days of bobby socks and school fight songs, fret not. Just head straight over to Ashton’s Frostop, a drive-in that’s been providing car-window service for burgers, shakes and root beer floats since it opened in the mid-1960s.
