Breakfast in the mountains? I do believe so. Adam’s Mountain Cafe is a gem of a restaurant located in Manitou Springs. They prepare all their food fresh to order which gives you time to sip on their cinnamon-orange tea and enjoy the vintage art nouveau interior of the cafe. The tea comes from MarketSpice, a store at the Pike Place Market in Seattle, and has been a favorite of mine since I first visited Seattle a couple years ago! It was a revelation when I put two and two together. Coloradical really.
The breakfast equation could only be completed by a fresh cinnamon roll with an orange glaze alongside my shiitake mushroom, garlic and cheese omelet. nom nom nom nom. The morning was a bit chilly to sit outside, but the Cafe is located on a darling little stream that adds to the ‘mountain cafe’ experience.
The wait can be long on the weekend for breakfast, so be prepared. Otherwise, head up to the mountains and enjoy.
And today, is my first day at my new job. Woot woot!
