Adam’s Mountain Café’s breakfast delights


  • Griffin Swartzell
The whole wheat pancakes at Adam's Mountain Café are something special. They’re tender and delicate, yet substantial — it takes a smaller stack to feel full than one might expect. With real maple syrup, rich and dark with a character almost like cinnamon, they’re something else. I’m sad I asked for one instead of two to cost-cut on my runner’s special ($9.75/one pancake), which pairs them with fresh fruit and sherry cream potatoes.

That said, I’m plenty full from the delicate arrangement of fruit, plus what is essentially an entire medium potato baked perfectly tender and loaded with scallions, white cheddar and a slightly sweet sherry cream sauce. House chai ($5) is a treat too, milky black tea perfumed with spices. I’m less impressed by a side of vegetarian green chile ($2), which sacrifices richness for cumin and black pepper that don’t meld with the rest of the soup.
