Quant tiny restaurant with a small menu but everything is very good. The lamb stew in particular really stands out. We will probably go again if we are in the area. Not a lot of ambiance though which is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5.

We loved this restaurant so much that we came two nights in a row. What a surprise to find creative and delicious food in a small town and at very reasonable prices. The bread was a different variety each night, accompanied by dipping sauce so yummy we practically licked the plate. Salmon was the special one evening and was tender... More

Nothing to fault here - atmosphere pleasant, food good, service good (with no trace of the surliness mentioned in other reviews). Not exceptional, but would go back if we were in the area again.

I can't say enough about how much I love the Cold Mountain Cafe- enough that whenever I visit New England I make sure to stop at least twice- 1st for lunch 2nd for dinner. Always comfortable and relaxing atmosphere with beautiful local art featured on the walls. The staff always makes me feel warm and welcome without being too overly... More

Fresh ingredients, average size portions, good presentation, but rather ordinary meal...I was really expecting something a little more creative from reviews that I had read. However the staff/owner is lovely and very helpful.

Our B&B host recommended the cafe as somewhere to eat on a Monday when a number of other places are closed. It was very busy when we arrived and were told it was a 20 min wait so we returned after this time. After we'd been seated there was a continual flow of people through the door showing just how...

I had dinner at the Cold Mountain 3 nights in a row. All the meals were very good. But dont come later than 6 pm - you cannot book a table so you just have to show up and hope something is available . The second night we came a around 7 pm and it was totally full. We were... More

We got here 10 minutes after it opened on Saturday and all tables and bar seats were already full. Rather than wait the hour for one to open, we put on our coats and sat outside for a brisk evening meal. We asked the waitress to promise she wouldn't forget us and she was true to her word, checking back... More

We arrived on a damp Saturday evening and it was difficult to tell if we should seat ourselves or find a hostess. We asked the bartender if we should seat ourselves and she just shook her head. So we stood in the middle of the room (there is not a hostess stand) until we asked a server passing by. She... More

Stopped in for lunch, this cafe was clearly very popular with locals. Really excellent coffee and hot chocolate. Lovely quiche and falafels for lunch. Quirky, friendly and good value.
