I was wandering around manitou late at night (10pm) when I stumbled across this small cafe. The atmosphere is awesome. It feels like you walked into one of the hobbits home from lord of the rings. The actual Mate itself was really good. They have quite a big selection of organic food as well (if youre into that). Staff was... More

We were on our way to Taos after a night in Manitou, and this was the first open café we came to. We instantly felt welcome and settled in for a relaxing breakfast. The food was steamed, but was one of the best eggs I've had the pleasure to try! Great tea...and they provide honey!! Owners were nice as well... More

My wife and I recently tried Mate in Patagonia, and found that it wasn't really for us in the traditional sense. Mate'factor does a much better job of preparing their mate for the American palette. The owner went into great detail of their process and so we decided to give it another try. These were still on the exotic side,... More

Not a very diverse menu for a "healthy" restaurant. The food selection was un-imaginative which would be acceptable if there was any care or skill for food design or preparation. Staff was not especially attentive or friendly. I would recommend going to subway for a sandwich over this, and I would not really recommend subway if you were getting it... More

If you just want to eat something healthy and go about the rest of your day, try Mate. The food I believe is all organic, delicious and inexpensive. The teas are wonderful. Sit outside in the sun and watch the people go by. Open 24 hours most days!

An interesting place, to say the least. It's a clean and nicely decorated restaurant with wooden tables tucked into cozy booths that reminded me of tree houses. The staff behind the counter seemed indifferent or confused and got our order wrong. It's got an unusual vibe - the restroom walls and tables are covered with confusing religious propaganda. We spent... More

My husband and I stopped here for coffee on our way out of Colorado Springs, headed to Denver. My husband is a coffee nut and he always gets the same thing, an Americano, no matter where we are. As soon as he asked for "just a coffee" I knew something was up. Let's begin. The interior was really beautiful, with... More

My daughter's favorite spot in Manitou Springs. She was forever going there to get her tea fix. She absolutely loves this place.

Very quaint building. Loved the tiny, cozy decor. We tried coffee and iced mate drinks and loved them both. We didn't sample the food, but it looked very tasty.
