I enjoy this place so much. I bring visiting friends from away to show them how lucky our little town is to have such a jewel. All year round it's open and inviting. Whether I stop by alone and sit at the bar for a great pizza or have a memorable meal with a friend, I've never had a bad... More

Cafe Miranda is serving lunch and dinner seven days a week on a side street just off of the main road that runs through the center of Rockland. This quirky little restaurant with a huge and varied menu is a "must stop" for out of town visitors and locals. The dining room is crowded and noisy and smells wonderful. Two... More

We were in the mood for some "comfort food". I ordered spaghetti and meat-balls. They were by far the best meat-balls that I have ever had - crispy on the outside and made up of various complementing meats. My wife had a Lobster Roll that had a minimum of six claws.

We dine at Cafe Miranda regularly and have always had outstanding meals, while some reviewers have expressed that the large menu overwhelms them, we love having so many choices though we often opt for reliable favorites including the wonderful groce (a warm, Asian-inspired salad with rice noodles and a choice of steak or tofu), the amazing macaroni and cheese, their...

Visited Rockland,ME in the early winter and the town was essentially closed down for the season. Even though it was off season, I was advised to call Cafe Miranda and make reservations (needed all year round) and was lucky enough to get one early on a Friday night. The place was very busy, filled with happy people. The decor was... More

As inveterate travelers and brave eaters, TwoinMaine have eaten cod tongues in Labrador, beef kidneys in Paris, haggis in Inverness, green tipped mussels in Auckland - and incredible coffee and local fish wherever we travel. So when we stopped by Café Miranda for lunch - for the first time ever though the restaurant is just 20 minutes from home -... More

Our waitress was great! Fast, efficient, knowledgeable and personable. Her efforts added to the experience. The menu appears endless (be prepared to enjoy a cocktail or two while you read through it.). We frequent here as much as possible. It is our go-to place for special occasions and we also like to sneak in for a brunch or lunch when... More

Cafe Miranda is always a pleasure. The menu is so extensive we always print off the menu from their website. We study it at home and are ready to order when we arrive. The selection of appetizers is dazzling! We like to order 4 of those with wine and it is a feast!

My family had lunch at Cafe Miranda, with mixed experiences. The coffee was superb (as good as in Italy, according to my picky daughter), and my pizza was great, with lots of toppings and a good crust. Sandwiches were not good, however -- tough bread, not great meat. Overall, it was very expensive for lunch, even for a tourist town.... More

Found the food less than appealing - lots of gloppy dressing on the salads and an okay burger. It's huge menu is a little overwhelming. Probably will give it a pass when we are next in Rockland.
