As the cool evenings foretell winter's approach, the splendor of our aspen's fall foliage commences. Chef Kate keeps pace with the inevitable march of the seasons by introducing her fall menu. This season of harvest is reflected in the choice of ingredients; squashes, shellfish, and savory herbs, to name a few, all sourced from family farms, local ranches and sustainably harvested from the sea. At Kate's side is a culinary team dedicated to your enjoyment, happy to accommodate gluten free, and vegetarian/vegan dietary preferences. Our intimate dining rooms afford limited availability, reservations are suggested.

We hope your enjoyment and experience make you a welcome addition to our family and home.

Celebrating Eighteen Years

Celebrating Eighteen Years


The Café Diva journey began December 1, 1998. Starting as a wine bar serving appetizers, we have evolved into something different. We hope you feel as we do, something special. Dining is more than simply eating and drinking. Rather the perception of flavor, the uniqueness of the moment, the true joy of dining are made by those with whom the moment is shared. Over the past eighteen years we have been honored to share these moments with you and we thank you.

View Our FALL Menu

Looking forward, we strive to respect our very special relationship with you, to challenge ourselves to be our best, to make many more special moments.

Café Diva, Steamboat Springs, Colorado . . . Cuisine, Wine and Spirits, Artfully Crafted and Presented.

Kate Rench

EXECUTIVE CHEF

Chef Kate Van Rensselaer Rench first expressed herself through humble mediums with a BFA in sculpture and ceramics. To help support her art studies she starting her career in the kitchen, flipping burgers at the Mountain Sun Pub and Brewery in Boulder, CO, where she discovered her passion for cooking. She went to the French Culinary Institute, New York City, in February of ’98. After graduating with the Jacques Pepin award in September of the same year, she began her career at Jean-Georges Restaurant (Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s signature, four star restaurant in Manhattan). It was there that Chef Kate first felt her expression completely realized; technically innovative, delicately prepared French-Asian fusion cuisine.

After one year at Jean-Georges, Chef Kate was promoted to Chef de Partie of Garde Manger, where Kate remained for the next two years. Next, she spent two years as the executive chef at Hayday Country Market/ Balduccis in Westport, CT, where she managed a high volume prepared foods department.

Missing the mountains, she found herself back in the serenity of Steamboat Springs, CO, where she became part of Café Diva. After six months cooking here, Kate was offered the Executive Chef position and eventually partnership. Through her fresh, flavorful, seasonally changing menus, Chef Kate has earned top marks nationally with connoisseurs and critics, and most importantly Steamboat locals.

Since expanding the restaurant (we started with four tables), Café Diva has moved to the pinnacle of dining in Colorado, yet remains quaint in its destination, the Northern Rockies. Chef Kate balances her culinary career with her husband, Craig, her two dogs and her maniacal pursuit of mountain sports.
