You will be hard pressed to find a fresher more flavorful meal. The sage tea is fantastic. It's good both hot and cold.

We sat outside in their patio area. We had our 20 pound dog with us and there were two other tables in the patio that also had their dogs. Food was good, service was great. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because after our meal we used the restroom. The restrooms and kitchen view made me wish... More

Too many interesting looking entrees makes for difficult decision-making for a first-timer. Ended-up with the chicken kabob, which had excellent flavor. The humus was excellent, as well.

Been coming once a week with my father. Tony is a serious chef who always makes our lamb kabobs just like we like them. Tony takes great care in his preparation and also personally checking with us every visit. Tony takes great care in having a clean kitchen and the way he plates makes the meal that much more enjoyable.... More

Last night we came in for our usual choice of chicken kabob. Last night's was the best it has ever been! We asked who the cook was and his name is Tony. We told Tony when he came out to say hi that we can really tell the difference between cooks! Sometimes the chicken is dry and last time it... More

We stopped in for dinner because of the great reviews. Our meal was even better than we expected. The staff are long time employees passionate about the food they serve. Their suggestions for entres and dessert were excellent. Don't miss the sage tea, truly unique. Sahara will be our first stop on our next visit to Manitou.

I stopped in because of the great reviews I had seen. I had no idea what to order and the waiter walked me through the menu. I gotta say everything was very fresh and exotic in a wonderful way. Definitely will return again!

Went to the Sahara café, Small Café with good people and better food. I had the sampler, which was more than enough for me. Great, will go there again.

What a gem!! My husband and I are staying at the fabulous Broadmoor hotel, however I must say we were equally impressed with our lunch at Sahara. Outstanding!! Beautifully prepared and seasoned perfectly. The crew couldn't have been more accommodating and were simply gracious. We WILL be back before returning to Philadelphia.

We had lunch at the Sahara Cafe last week. The lamb kabobs were tender and tasty. Served up with hummus and pita, it was wonderful. My wife order the lamb sandwich and loved it. We finished up with baklava. We went back today and had lunch with our daughter-in-law. Again, the food was wonderful. I love flavors and the sage... More
