I recently went to the Sahara Cafe for dinner, and I was expecting a fantastic experience considering this is the #1 restaurant in Manitou. I think the service was great, and we appreciated that they had some gluten-free options, but it is not worthy of a #1 ranking. The decor is dated and tired, and my tuna salad was incredibly average. Very surprised when Manitou has other tremendous restaurants available.

Appreciated the great value, very friendly staff, and delicious food here. Couldn't get a seat at the brew pub so popped into this small cafe. So happy we did. I loved the Chicken plate - really delicious offering and my friends raved about the gyros and falafels. Great food for a good price.

Very unassuming, simple. Great prices, excellent food, reasonable servings. Great homy service. Loved it. The only thing that could use improvement is the decor

After reading the glowing reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to have dinner at Sahara. The reviewers were right --- the food was great and the owners are wonderful.

To tell you what we thought of this place, in the short time we were in the area we ate there three times. They always make the food fresh to order. The flavors are wonderful, everything tasty. We would both recommend the Lamb Kabobs. The lamb is tender and flavorful, the veggies al dente. It comes with hummus, pita bread, and a crisp salad with tzatziki sauce. We have tried various restaurants of this type, but this is the best of the best.
