Manitou Springs Breakfast Treat

The Hubby and I attended the Earl Klugh Week-end of Jazz in Colorado Springs last weekend – that’s an entirely different post for another day! 

Restaurant So…..for now…. let me share THIS with you.

Adam’s Mountain Cafe in Manitou Springs, Colorado is The Place for breakfast.  Based on serving natural foods that are locally raised, with vegetarian options, this great place is a Slow Foods restaurant.  (All I know is – it’s fabulous.)

Here’s the proof:




A Monster Sized Cinnamon Roll, complete with a swimming pool of melted butter, piping hot from the oven! (Pay no attention to the wine and beer list…it is simply a prop, used to show the name….).


 How’s THAT for indulging?

And that was just the appetizer.

Here’s the whole grain blueberry pancake, complete with warm maple syrup…


And the scrambled eggs, sunflower seed toast, with fruit….


……and oatmeal…..


See why it is such fun to “share” breakfast? You get to sample more of the menu items and say that you really didn’t eat a lot, since you shared it all. Works for me!

    That is what you call a stick to your ribs breakfast that will keep you going all morning long. 🙂


  2. Now that cinnamon roll is a breakfast & lunch all on its own. I think I’d have to do the sharing thing because everything looks so good. Love the pottery coffee mug & sugar bowl, very pretty.


    • Sharing was indeed the idea of the day. And yes, we had to “quit while we were ahead” on the roll..or they’d be rolling us outa the place, you know? LOL! We had to save room for our “real” breakfast, right?…

      The decor was neat – the total experience way cool, as they source everything from close by, and the freshly cooked meal was worth the wait. The coffee mug had local honey in it, and the sugar bowl was natural cane sugar…how fun is that?
