This is open 24 hours. The people who work there are genuinely happy to be there. This place is not about quick but if you want strong tea or really delicious and hot coffee, this is your place!

Made fresh--the coffee and the baked goods. Our day featured the raspberry muffin. It was large enough to share, but we should have bought 2. Just a couple small complaints: 1) the chairs were not that comfortable; 2) you need a key to use the restroom (uni-sex); 3) we got a coffee card (Buy 9 get the 10th free), but... More

Such a cute little restaurant with a nice menu. The iced chai maté really hit the spot on the hot June day that we visited last week. Definitely stopping in adhesion the next time we're in town!

This place is my favorite place to go in Manitou. The environment is very cozy and relaxing with the way they have it set up. The staff is very friendly and the drinks are to die for. When I lived in Colorado I would go here several times a week just for the peach or raspberry mate drinks. The prices... More

This restaurant features mate as a beverage alternative to coffee (although they offer the latter as well) and is open at all hours. I liked the

We stopped in here for a light lunch and the hot sandwiches were fresh and delicious. I personally had the tuna melt and it took me back home to Moms cooking! Kettle chips that came with each sandwich were great, the environment was warm and welcoming and the staff were friendly. The desserts are vegan & all natural- so no... More

After our fisrt visit to eat lunch we went back every day for a mate drink of our choice. Peach was my favorite one. The atmosphere is relaxed and unhurried.

Yes it is staffed by people with religious beliefs. So freaking what. They don't proselyte or push what they believe. What they do is provide an excellent atmosphere and cup of tea. Great service and amazing tea. If someone having religious ideals prevents you from enjoying your tea then you shouldn't come here, but if others beliefs don't faze you... More

Turkey Reuben is off the chart and the service is amazing. I have enjoyed many food items and love the health and wellbeing aspects of the place. I even enjoy the occasional late night theological discussion...these guys are really cool. Support them!

This cafe is run by a tiny religious sect called the 12 Tribes, most recently in the news for severe child abuse - go ahead and google it. I'm sorry I added to their profits.
