Happened upon this restaurant by chance - pure serendipity! We sat outside and enjoyed the early fall evening. I ordered the black bean cake - it was as beautiful a presentation as I have ever seen for a meal and it tasted every bit as it looked. Husband had the seafood jumbolaya. Reasonably priced with good service too.

We were staying (fairly) near by at the Mountain View Grand where negative reviews of the food and service induced me to do a search of other possible restaurants. I settled on Cold Mountain Cafe right away as it seemed to have the right blend of interesting food, good reviews and an intimate feel. We were a party of 6... More

We have been here several times this summer and each time the service has been excellent and the food delicious! It is especially nice to sit outside. We have particularly enjoyed the fish specials for dinner, the soups, and the cheesecake for dessert!

This place is a gem. We stopped in late afternoon thinking from the name and location that they probably offered sandwiches and such. As soon as we stepped in the door we realized this quaint little place was an upscale restaurant. The menu offerings are eclectic, creative and well presented. I love that they include herbs like lemongrass in some... More

We stopped for a coffee (or something cold-and for 5 minutes) and stayed an hour. Only one thing does that for us… people. Both the visitors of this quaint spot and the staff were refreshing and worth the stop. We will visit again.

Cold Mountain is a sweet gem of an eatery on Main Street in Bethlehem. With about 8 tables and some outdoor seating (weather permitting) it fills up quickly with locals and people staying in the area's Inns. Friendly and welcoming staff Varied menu, well prepared with some inventive touches. Local Brews and a good wine list. Reservations are a must... More

Everything was amazing from the fresh basil pineapple margarita to the fresh berry crumble for dessert. The food is fresh and everything was delicious. Fantastic service in a cute artsy little dining room. You will not be disappointed .

Wonderful find driving back to our hotel from Franconia Notch State Park. Great salad and yummy flourless chocolate torte with raspberry sauce for dessert.
