We went to Cafe Milagro on our first day in Manuel Antonio and didn't know anything about it. WOW! So good! I had the banana pancakes which I have been dreaming about ever since and my husband had a typical CR breakfast. Coffee was the best we had in CR and we bought many bags for gifts. Highly recommend!

Thank you!! The banana pancakes are very popular and we love them too! We have been roasting delicious Costa Rican coffee for just shy of 20 years and are proud to offer such wonderful options. When you run out we will gladly ship Cafe Milagro to your front door. More

What a nice little gem! The food was probably the best combined meal we had in Costa Rica during our week stay. We want a little overboard. The avocado soup was unusual and completely addictive. The pulled pork corn cakes were out of this world (and a surprise, given our less-than-exciting experiences with beef in CR). The sautéed calamari and... More

We liked everything we had here.. Fell in love with the dinner special - 'grouper fish cooked in passion fruit sauce with mashed potato and grilled zuccini , red peppers'. We were skeptical initially if the fruit sauce would make it too sweet or fruity but we were wrong. It was just perfect. The calamari starter, classic mojito and fresh... More

Notes like this simply make our day! So very glad you enjoyed it all and everyone works very hard to ensure it is so! We try to showcase local fruits and veggies so you actually enjoyed mashed yucca, not mashed potatoes. Tastier and better for you! We do hope you will come back soon and we greatly appreciate you spreading... More

El Patio de Cafe Milagro was conveniently located across the street from our villa rental, Villas El Parque. We decided to give Cafe Milagro a try since it was just a walk away, and because we had previously read up on some great reviews on the place. We were seated right on the front patio overlooking the street, but if... More

Such a great place. Really liked it, everything is well thought in this place. Not only the food and coffee, but also the whole surroundings. For example, the fact that there are umbrellas from restaurant to toilet and the other way around. Since you have to walk to open air a few meters.

We had lunch at the original Cafe Milagro location and it was wonderful (there is now a location on the strip across from the waterfront in Quepos). We stopped here on our trip 11 years ago and while it has changed a bit over the years, the fundamentals are the same - warm service, delicious food and great coffee too.... More

I was drawn in from a long walk by the coffee aroma. Ended up shopping a bit in the loveliest little retail space. Stayed for dinner and just kept coming back. Of course the coffee was unreal. The food was wonderful and the place has this vibe that just surrounds. Really warm, cosy and upbeat atmosphere. One of my favourite... More

Thank you. We are touched by your thoughtful, descriptive and kind review of our efforts. You captured everything we work very hard to accomplish, there has been much trial and error along the way.

We had the pleasure of having lunch and dinner (twice) at El Patio. The food was great, but the atmosphere was even better- quality live music playing each night. Highly recommended!
