We just arrived for one night in town, and found maté! Such a gorgeous room and atmosphere. Didn't have food, but it was definitely food made with love. These guys are super nice, and even came by the table to chat! We're coming back, and definitely checking out the Yellow Deli jn Boulder!

We were referred to this hippie healthy cafe and the food was fabulous. The crowd was a bit of a throwback to the 60's haight/ashbury, but don't let that deter you from a great meal.

This is open 24 hours. The people who work there are genuinely happy to be there. This place is not about quick but if you want strong tea or really delicious and hot coffee, this is your place!

Made fresh--the coffee and the baked goods. Our day featured the raspberry muffin. It was large enough to share, but we should have bought 2. Just a couple small complaints: 1) the chairs were not that comfortable; 2) you need a key to use the restroom (uni-sex); 3) we got a coffee card (Buy 9 get the 10th free), but... More

Such a cute little restaurant with a nice menu. The iced chai maté really hit the spot on the hot June day that we visited last week. Definitely stopping in adhesion the next time we're in town!

This place is my favorite place to go in Manitou. The environment is very cozy and relaxing with the way they have it set up. The staff is very friendly and the drinks are to die for. When I lived in Colorado I would go here several times a week just for the peach or raspberry mate drinks. The prices... More

This restaurant features mate as a beverage alternative to coffee (although they offer the latter as well) and is open at all hours. I liked the

We stopped in here for a light lunch and the hot sandwiches were fresh and delicious. I personally had the tuna melt and it took me back home to Moms cooking! Kettle chips that came with each sandwich were great, the environment was warm and welcoming and the staff were friendly. The desserts are vegan & all natural- so no... More

After our fisrt visit to eat lunch we went back every day for a mate drink of our choice. Peach was my favorite one. The atmosphere is relaxed and unhurried.
