Warm and friendly spot to dine and catch up with friends

We arrived in Bethlehem after a day of travel. We spotted it while driving past and thought it worth a try. As we walked in we quickly realized we had stumbled upon a real find....friendly environment with a small bar in the corner that served as a spot for old friends to convene.

We had a nice dinner after a day on the Franconia Ridge. My son and I dined outdoors at the Cold Mountain Cafe on a beautiful August evening.The eggplant tower was very good and more filling than expected. My son had the chicken gorgonzola which was tasty as well. The bottle beer selection was decent and there is not any... More

We came here for dinner with our kids as part of a 5 day trip in the White Mountains. Cold Mountain Cafe had been recommended by our server at the Franconia Inn. We came without a reservation around 7:45pm on a Monday night and got an outdoor table after about a 10-15 minute wait. The menu was full of great... More

Had dinner at the Cold Mountain two weekends ago and the food was excellent. Enjoyed the stuffed dates as an appetizer what a treat! Then I had the eggplant stack which is vegetarian and my partner had the bistro steak both were excellent. For dessert we shared a homemade chocolate cake that was to die for. The restaurant just underwent... More

Amazing cuisine, all freshly cooked and, best of all, sensible European style portions so nothing got wasted (OK so it was all absolutely delicious too!). Top rate when it came to feeding the children too, adapting the menu accordingly and ensuring they were served up first!

Our host at The Gables recommended this delightful restaurant and we were completely satisfied with our dining experience. Outstanding food preparation and wonderful service in a casual atmosphere. Couldn't have been better. Conviently located right in the center of Bethlehem.

Although I had read rave reviews about Cold Mountain Cafe, I didn't go in with high expectations. In all but one very minor aspect, I was extremely impressed with our lunch. It was an uncharacteristically hot and humid afternoon in Bethlehem, NH, so I opted for a cup of gazpacho. It had savory flavors, just the right juxtaposition of textures,... More

Although this was our first visit we understand that the Cold Mountain just got a face lift and now accepts credit cards for the first time as well as having added a 7 seat bar with hard alcohol for those looking for mixed drinks. The food was delicious and the service friendly and pleasant. We enjoyed the steak special as... More

I am not a vegetarian but my companion is, we were recommended to go to this restaurant. I had the veg. tamale pie, made with sweet potato, spinach, corn tortilla and cheese. Huge piece! And very good my companion had the black bean 'cake' also very good. This is an upscale small restaurant pricey but worth it.
