My wife and I had brunch at Cafe Miranda and sat at the bar which overlooks the kitchen. What a fun experience! It's truly amazing how chefs work so hard and all of the responsibilities they have. It's hard to imagine until you actually watch them work for an hour or two. Anyway, my wife had an amazing Camino de... More

What a find thanks to all of my fellow Tripadvisor reviewers. This was just a terrific restaurant. Went there with our daughter and some friends recently while in the Rockland area. This place was just what we were looking for. Cozy environment ( a wood stove outside on their patio), an eclectic menu with so many choices it took us... More

We brought some Midwestern friends to Cafe Miranda after a long morning in the Farnsworth Museum just around the corner. Everyone was ready for a good lunch-- and no one was disappointed. Our friends shared a lobster mac and cheese and a lobster pizza and were rapturous. My wife raved about her fish tacos and I loved my gussied up... More

Seriously delicious layers of flavors and textures in the haddock tacos. If fish tacos are on a menu at a restaurant I usually order them.... From Mexico to Maine these were the best fish tacos yet. A must try.

We went for lunch today. Jersey Fries out of this world. Excellent blend of spice, smoke, sweet, and freshness. I could have just eaten that and been content. The beef tacos equally flavorful and satisfying. Highly recommend this place if you want great food and are sick of the lobster roll/chowder houses.

I had the lobster special we also had the pasta classic both were outstanding. The lobster was served with shaved goat cheese - mild and a good compliment to the dish. They were happy... More

We've been vacationing in the area for years now, and this was our first visit to a local legend. It won't be our last! The premises are small and charmingly quirky on a side street off the main drag in Rockland, right down to the ninja flamingos by the front stoop. The menu is enormous, as are the portions. We...

This place has a good brunch. Maybe try the veggie frittata if your looking for something light or go for a big plate of bacon!

Th Farnsworth Museum gift shop employees suggested this cafe to us. It was a little hidden off the main strip, so you have to look for it down the side street. It was pretty busy, which is always a good sign. The menu has a lot of variety, asian, Mexican, American flair. Our food was great! Each bite had great... More
