This place is now Adams Mountain Cafe. I was sorry to see it close as it was great meeting spot for locals and they had great food and terrific service. They did not open elsewhere either.

The breakfast there was amazing, and the friendliest people you could ever meet.. its an All American Veterans theme, and that is what makes it a great place in itself.. loved the food. so good, will go back for sure.

This is a breakfast place and a reminder of old fashioned home town eats. Time seams to stand still with simple café style restaurant.

The Manitou Pancake and Steak House has closed and the building now houses the relocated Adams Mountain Cafe. It's a quite different restaurant, but Adams Mountain has a very loyal local following. Give it a try.

Had a great breakfast on our way to Garden of the Gods. We had to wait a while but it was worth the wait. Once we were seated our server was so great. We received our food promptly and it tasted delicious. Great Breakfast place while in Manitou.

We stay in Manitou Springs at the El Colorado Lodge and eat our morning and noon meals at the Pancake House. Luis and his staff are always friendly and up to the task of feeding 40+ people quickly. The breakfast buffet has... More

We thought they would have decent food, but found that it was way overpriced for what they serve. If the prices were cheaper then I would consider eating there again, as the food... More

My family and I spent a few days in Manitou Springs this past May. We decided to stop in and eat lunch here after hearing good things about the place and seeing the parking lot full of cars every morning. The place was clean and the people were friendly.
