I have made no secret that of all the Colorado Springs restaurants that provide vegan fare, Adam’s Mountain Cafe tops my list of favorites.
Two words: Senegalese vegetables.
Six more words: over udon noodles with sesame tofu.
Last summer Adam’s Mountain Cafe suffered greatly during a flash flood (the result of the Waldo Canyon burn scar from the wildfires). The staff and community rallied and they reopened swiftly. Shortly after owner Farley McDonough made it clear it was time for Adam’s to move and she had her eyes on the Pancake and Steak House, further east but still in Manitou (and closer to Old Colorado City, two miles closer to my home, though I suspect that was not her motivation).
Farley’s vision became a reality. Last night, after closing the business for only nine days to move, Adam’s Mountain reopened at 26 Manitou Avenue!
The space is gorgeous.
With the reopening there are a few new features, such as
Monday: 8am – 3pm
Tuesday – Saturday: 8am – 3pm and 5pm – 9pm
Sunday: 8am – 3pm
Smoothies and juices
A Saison draft from Woodland Park’s Paradox Beer Company
A new red Zinfandel on the wine list
Free parking! Lots of parking! No battling summer tourists in downtown Manitou! (I’m excited.)
Same awesome staff
I have a special connection to Sam, Marisa, Nancy, and Audrey. These women make our dining experience perfection every single time we visit. They are funny, attentive, always remember that I want vegan anything, and treat us like family.
Congratulations to Farley and her team for overcoming the storm and rising up bigger, bolder and better than ever!
