I really wanted to like Adams Mountain Cafe more than I did. It is such a fabulously charming restaurant with a warm and wonderful staff, but I found the food to be lacking.
To be fair, I am not only a vegan, but a gluten-free one at that, so my selections were severely limited. Our server was kind enough to help me navigate the menu, and I ended up choosing a tempe dish that was smothered in green chile sauce. I didn't like the taste at all. I found it to be bland and uninspired.
That said, the friend I was with tried it and thought it was good, so admittedly, it was just a matter of opinion. She's a vegetarian, and had a lot more choices and was very happy with her egg dish.
Given the overall atmosphere and the quality of their dishes, I would give them another try. There are also few choices in a small town like Manitou, so I applaud them for being accommodating.
I'm giving them 4 cows because my companion enjoyed my food, so I think it's possible I just ordered the wrong dish for me and so I want to give them the benefit of the doubt. I've also heard good things from other vegan friends about this place.Pros: Vegan options clearly marked, Friendly staff, Charming atmosphere
Cons: My food was bland, Limited vegan & gluten free options
