“Very friendly people”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

The waitress and owner are extremely friendly and cordial. It is a cute little place with a souvenir shop. The food was tasty but not large. Parking is challenging as the streets are narrow and hilly. Alas I didn't try their coffee, but I trust it is top notch.

Thank you! We do think our staff is incredibly friendly and we are happy you were on the receiving end of their kindness. We started out 19 years ago roasting coffee, it's how we first got our feet wet and from there the restaurant side of the business ensued. We are extremely proud of Cafe Milagro and hope you will try a cup the next time you are in town. If not, you may order online and we will ship to your front door! We appreciate you taking time out of your day to let other's know about us. All the best to you!

“Delicious food and drinks!”
Reviewed 2 November 2013 via mobile

We visited Cafe Milagro a couple of times. Dinner was half off during low season (September and October). Their jerk chicken is well seasoned and the beans and rice was very good as well. The calamari, chorizo and roasted corn along with spicy flat bread was an excellent
appetizer. We stopped by for drinks the next day. Their coffee is freshly roasted local coffee which was delightful. Our waitress was super friendly. This is a great place for breakfast, lunch and dinner or even better a lazy afternoon with a nice cup of coffee. They also have a good selection of unique souvenirs which you won't find at other touristy places.

“Excellent local coffee, delicious food, large portions, friendly service.”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

We stayed up the road at La Mariposa Hotel, this is just a short walk away. The food, both lunch and dinner, is excellent. We are here in October, the low season, and dinner is half price, which seems crazy. We had fish tacos (four on a huge plate) and chicken quesadillas for lunch. The portions are huge. The fish is fresh, the chicken juicy. The coffee is theirs, they own a plantation, grow it and roast it right here in Pura Vida. I can't say enough good things about this place. Don't miss it.

“Delectable food and fantastic ambience”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

Quaint cafe/restaurant with a variety of food and drink options. With a live music backdrop and our noses filled with the aroma of coffee, my girlfriend and I enjoyed great appetizers, entrees, and not one, not two but THREE desserts. We also received a soup tasting, compliments of the Chef. The owner was extremely vigilant and helpful, along with our waitress.

Literally everything consumed at El Patio de Cafe Milagro was delicious and reasonably priced. Highly recommended over most restaurants in Quepos/Manuel Antonio, let alone Costa Rica. We will be back for breakfast tomorrow morning. And probably lunch too.
