For anytime of the day... this was a favorite! If you are craving an ice coffee, Cafe Milagro has the best. For evening, great live music. Will, the main singer and his band.. terrific!

We had outstanding meals and service. Owned by a US couple who migrated here in the mid 90s. They also source and roast coffee. Just a very pleasant place where you can relax and have a choice of many fine dishes. We regret that we dined on our last nite in CR and were unable to go back.

I hate to give this place a mediocre review because the atmosphere is so nice and the food is quite good. However, the service left me feeling lukewarm. I visited Cafe Milagro more than once as to give them a fair chance. Both times the staff acted generally disinterested and even somewhat annoyed by the idea of providing service (with... More

We had dinner here one night and sat in garden area. Close walk from hotel we were staying at. Waitress spoke English which was helpful and food was delicious. They serve plenty of food and average price for area.

Cafe Milagro quickly became our "go to" place at MA. We've been there for breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon snacks and have not been disappointed. They have a large selection of coffee and other drinks with delicious desserts if you need a quick pick-me-up in the afternoon. At night, they have a live band so a good place to linger... More

We went for a nice dinner with new friends and found the food to be excellent and well priced. We also ate breakfast there, which was good. We also had the opportunity to stop by for dessert and really loved the banana split!

We came here for a quick coffee and treat for the kids. It was so good, we went back for lunch. I had the fish tacos and they were awesome. Kids had fish and rice/veggies and husband had quesadillas.

Milagro is a really nice little cafe where they serve great food against reasonable prices. In the evening they have live music, making the relaxed and friendly atmosphere even better. Staff is friendly. It can get crowded between 6 and 7 pm, so consider to come early or late, or book ahead.
