We've had multiple meals here and they were all great. The only variable is the seating. The back patio is awesome while the front tables are a little close to the street noise for my taste. But find an excuse to use some of their special chili sauce. Pretty spicy but very flavorful. Great vegetarian options and killer smoothies.

Thank for such a kind review! Everyone works very hard to ensure you will enjoy your time with us. The homemade hot sauce is always a hit. I can't eat a meal without it. Thank you again and come back soon! More

We only tried breakfast at Cafe Milagro, and we regretted not coming back for lunch and/or dinner! We had the croissant breakfast sandwich and the banana pancakes, both to die for! And they have a great list of coffee drinks which were also delicious.

The best fish tacos I had on my entire trip. I also liked the history of the restaurant and everything the owner is doing to give back to the community and respect the environment.

This definitely isn't a restaurant that local Ticos would patronize, but despite the ex-pat and "spring breaker" customer demographic, the food is very good and the coffee (small-batch roasted by the cafe's owners) is excellent: be sure to take some home with you! The live music is a nice touch, although it would have been fun to hear something with... More

The food is well done and very delicious. However, this review is for the beer. As a craft beer lover from the states, traveling to central america can be challenging as all the beer sucks. But, someone finally started to brew local craft beer. It is so refreshing to get a nice local hoppy IPA at the end of a... More

We too are super duper happy about the delicious locally made brews. As a company focused on sourcing everything locally, this was such a treat to finally round out our wonderful beverage menu with such goodness. We are all taking bets as to how many pounds we are going to gain and none of us care because it's so delicious... More

We didn't eat a meal here, but had dessert beverages two nights in a row! Incredibly yummy chocolate shakes and hot chocolate. I know this is a short review, but felt like I had to give props where props were due. YUMMY!
