We were recommended here by our Innkeeper. We got there late but were able to be seated outside. The service was spotty - we had different people doing different things for us- but it may have been the late hour. The food was a little slow in coming out but was very good. My wife really enjoyed her black bean... More

I remember stumbling upon this place 3 years ago, but could never remember where we were. Great spot that is unique and comfortable. We loved the vibe and the food was terrific. It was a real pleasure to find again after a long morning car ride. Enjoyed a hearty homemade soup and black bean cake-spinach greens salad. Yum! Hit the spot,... More

Had dinner after movie. Hubby and I were very happy with each course but the mushroom soup was. A huge hit. The Stack, eggplant, polenta and cheese was very creative.

Wow. To find a restaurant like this in a little town in NH was certainly a treat. The food was fresh and creative, like a trendy little bistro you'd find in the South End of Boston. But the wait staff and atmosphere was friendly and welcoming unlike those trendy bistros. Both of our meals were delicious with the standout being... More

After a day of sight-seeing it was great to have a really nice meal. Food was a little out of the ordinary - no cheeseburgers or anything too mundane - and all the better for it - a great place to visit if you're fed up with having the same thing over and over and want to try something new.

My husband and I were driving back to NY and looking for a place for lunch when we stumbled upon this place. We were pleased we stopped in. We had the gazpacho and shrimp and salmon salad. Excellent choices. Definitely recommend.

We stopped here at the recommendation of the ladies at Highlands Inn down the street. We were not at all disappointed. We had an excellent meal and drinks. I don't think we were expecting the level of tasty sophistication Cold Mountain offered us. It was a truly pleasant surprised. Definitely worth a visit.

We saw the menu at the B&B we stayed at and the innkeeper told us how great the sandwiches are. They were right, we had a fabulous lunch.

From the outside, the Cold Mountain Cafe looks very basic. Walk inside and the initial feeling is confirmed, with its small size and simple setting. But taste the food and you know you have found a jewel in the lovely village of Bethlehem. We stopped by again recently and were in for a renewed sophisticated delight.

By happenstance stopped for lunch there a few years ago & now we make it a destination when in the area. Their grilled chicken, whether salad of sandwiches are my favorite. Always moist & flavorful. My wife loves the bean cake & salad. We stopped for lunch on our way back from Montreal last week and it was good as... More
