I certainly did not miss the appeal of Mt. Desert Island and quite appreciate the quaint restaurants and shops that take pride in featuring fresh, local delights! In fact, I sought out Milagro Coffee looking for precisely that...a quaint coffee shop and bakery. I often go to trip advisor for restaurant recommendations and we found many amazing eateries on MDI using this site.
Unfortunately for us, this particular morning you did not have the selection which you stated in your response. Perhaps you were just out of many of your specialties, but for us, that is all we got to experience on our one trip to your shop. Also, unfortunately for us, we did not get a delicious blueberry muffin loaded with blueberries. Ours was dry with very few berries.
The breakfast burrito was clearly not a specialty of yours (as you said, your kitchen is 5X5) and I would not have ordered it myself, but that is what my husband wanted. While it did come on a 12 inch tortilla, that tortilla was nearly empty. It did not have 2 scrambled eggs (maybe half an egg) or 1.5 oz of sausage and it did have a jarred salsa added. To be honest, I would not have expected a great burrito from a bakery (again, my husbands choice :)), but it should have had at least one egg in it. Again, perhaps you had run out of ingredients and this was an exception, but it was our experience.
Trust me, I wanted to love this place. I had "sold" it to my family as the perfect stop on our way out to start our day of hikes. I kept focusing on the good coffee to keep the experience positive and tried to convince my boys that the blueberry muffin was just fine.
I hope that you will take this review as an opportunity to continuously improve as a business. If this was an unfortunate exception, then as a business owner, I would acknowledge, take note, improve where possible and continue to provide outstanding products and service. I would not try to insult or categorize "this traveler" as someone missing the point or looking for McDonalds and supersize portions.
