Fresh ingredients, average size portions, good presentation, but rather ordinary meal...I was really expecting something a little more creative from reviews that I had read. However the staff/owner is lovely and very helpful.

Our B&B host recommended the cafe as somewhere to eat on a Monday when a number of other places are closed. It was very busy when we arrived and were told it was a 20 min wait so we returned after this time. After we'd been seated there was a continual flow of people through the door showing just how...

I had dinner at the Cold Mountain 3 nights in a row. All the meals were very good. But dont come later than 6 pm - you cannot book a table so you just have to show up and hope something is available . The second night we came a around 7 pm and it was totally full. We were... More

We got here 10 minutes after it opened on Saturday and all tables and bar seats were already full. Rather than wait the hour for one to open, we put on our coats and sat outside for a brisk evening meal. We asked the waitress to promise she wouldn't forget us and she was true to her word, checking back... More

We arrived on a damp Saturday evening and it was difficult to tell if we should seat ourselves or find a hostess. We asked the bartender if we should seat ourselves and she just shook her head. So we stood in the middle of the room (there is not a hostess stand) until we asked a server passing by. She... More

Stopped in for lunch, this cafe was clearly very popular with locals. Really excellent coffee and hot chocolate. Lovely quiche and falafels for lunch. Quirky, friendly and good value.

Food is outrageously delicious and creatively prepared. Fair prices. The only thing wrong with Cold Mountain Cafe is that they are all the way in NH and we live in NY!

Stopped by this quaint little cafe in our quest for an apple farm. What a scrumptious lunch we all had. Very accommodating with a hint on New England dry humor. If in the area, make an effort to have a meal there.

We had seen good reviews for this place and went for dinner. They don't take reservations and the owner said that there was an hours wait for a table. She was very friendly and took our names. We were only staying 5 mins away so returned in an hour to a table ready for us. The food was exceptional. My... More

We stopped here on our way to Littleton thanks to fellow Trip Advisor reviewers. Our fellow reviewers have it right. Excellent food. Cute little place and quintessential white mountains town. And by the way - they have the best dark and stormiest we've ever had. Bonus!
