It's good to have Adams Mtn back since the change of location. Although the previous creek side historic bldg was far more charming, they've really worked hard on this place and it shows. Plans to add a creek side deck in the future should really elevate the experience. Best part of new location... read more

Sorry, we like meat and potatoes. This is for those who are vegetarian or vegan. We tried breakfast at this restaurant and could not find any breakfast meat, i.e. ham.

Delightful little restaurant with a lot of local color; loved the artwork and would LOVE to buy some! Our meal was delicious, and the server courteous and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal (hot tuna melt and soup) washed it down with locally brewed beer and ... The house Cinnamon Spice Tea. Found the tea in Boulder (or online) quite... More

We have always looked forward to lunch at the old location which was consistently great. Yesterday, we visited the new location and were very disappointed. I order the "Peak" sandwich. It is suppose to be a hot sandwich and when it came, the chicken was, even giving the benefit of the doubt, WARM/COLD. I sent it back. It returned later... More

I read great reviews on how veg/vegan friendly Adam's was, so we did breakfast Saturday during our recent visit to the area. There were not many vegan options at all. We got the Rancheros with tofu and a side of potatoes with chili. I *rarely* need to add seasoning, but the potatoes were downright bland. The tofu on the Rancheros... More

This was the second time my wife and I have eaten at Adams Mtn Café. The first time was for breakfast (which was delicious) the same day as the Casket races, this time my wife and I had dinner at the Adam's as we were in Manitou that day just to hang out. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very... More

The best food, acceptable service, and great atmosphere. We love, love Adams Mountain Cafe just before a hike in Red Rock Canyon Open Space or the Garden of the Gods. Still cozy atmosphere after moving from downtown Manitou Springs. The wait staff is great but the host was less than attentive. We have had friends and family that left the... More

Fabulous service, delicious food, diverse menu with excellent vegetarian and sustainable fish options! This is excellent food in an informal setting; they advertise themselves as "slow food" from around the world. It was a fun menu, that included Tibetan, North African, Vietnamese inspired dishes (and much more). We came away wishing we could take the restaurant home with us!

The newly restored and reenergized Adam's Mountain Cafe is on longer a true downtown Manitou Springs hotspot! But it is still a convenient, delicious and unique restaurant for all three meals. Now located at the gateway to Manitou Springs, Adam's offers an excellent variety of healthier and freshly prepared foods. Good ambiance, service and fine wine selection.
