Based upon very high marks from other TA reviewers, we tried Adam's for lunch. We were not disappointed. I had the cashew chicken salad and my wife opted for the fish special. Their table breads were special as was their service. Small wait to be seated at height of lunchtime was well worth it.

Overall this place isn't a place I'll go to again. Vegetarian and whole food options are cool but when you have a hankering for traditional bacon and eggs this place isn't the one. I did enjoy the potato patty a lot. The eggs were flavorful. I realized that the breakfast was pricy because we are talking about Organic and free... More

Went there for dinner a few nights ago with my wife... I ordered the MOROCCAN FISH TAGINE WITH SAFFRON. Reading the menu, one would never know that it would be spicy. It came out Cajun blackened and spicier than any fish I have had in a long time. I ordered milk to try to wash it down. Rather than complain... More

We stopped at this inviting, homey cafe on the way back from a Colorado Springs visit and were very pleased with the cafe's healthy, beautifully prepared food. The server was attentive and the food was served in a timely fashion. The cafe has a score of sweet landscape oil paintings on the wall, a Zen, meditative feel and a dedication... More

We were looking for a place near Garden of the Gods to get some lunch and I saw some good reviews for Adam’s Mountain Cafe. Even though they had tables open, they told us it would be a 30 minute wait (and this was at the tail end of normal lunchtime). We were concerned about time so we sat at... More

We have been here a few times before during our trips to Colorado, but this was our first time at their newer location. We went for a late breakfast. I ordered the Huevos Rancheros which was delicious. They're not the traditional Mexican version because they put their own Southwest spin on the recipe. A wonderful meal and, again, another great...

Fantastic food, not cheap but worth it, enjoyable friendly ambience. Their tea they sell in sack to take home is really tasty too.

Excellent food, friendly, efficient staff. Not downtown Manitou anymore but we'll worth the time to visit.

The menu choices and the daily breakfast special provide both creative vegetarian and carnivore choices. We experienced great service and enjoyed our avocado omelette and pancakes. My only complaint was that my omelette was served a bit cold.

Went to get lunch after the cog to pikes peak. So happy we found this little gem!! I had the vegetable burrito with green vegetarian chili and my husband had a polenta dish. The food was wonderful and there were plenty of options to pick from! Very friendly and fast service.
