We apologize for the unfriendly service. It is difficult to hear this about our staff since we put so much time and effort into hiring and training good people. As most of our reviews rave about our friendly service, we hope that this lapse can be chalked up to nerves or inexperience of the new trainees. Your comments will be... More

The food here was delicious and fresh with many good options for vegetarians. The menu was diverse but highlighted many local ingredients and dishes. Servers were helpful and friendly. We visited for both dinner and brunch during our stay at Manuel Antonio.

Great place to go if in Quepos/Manuel Antonio. We only ate the breakfast, which was pretty good. Coffee was the best we had on our trip. Staff is very attentive and friendly. We went back for drinks after dinner elsewhere and they have 4 or 5 craft beers on tap. This is one of the few places that had draft... More

Was referred to this place by the property manager of Lower Casa Panorama. We went in October and it was 50% of all entrees so that of course was a magnet for my wallet :).

A friend tipped us off about this place. It's a great find for purchasing gourmet coffee. We bought a series of bags as gifts for friends back home. We also enjoyed lunch. The food was fresh, flavorful, and plentiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Nice shopping as well for non-coffee-related items, too.

Thank you for your incredibly kind words; we are so happy you enjoyed your time with us. We have been roasting Costa Rica's finest coffees since 1994 and we work hard to keep getting better at it. When you need more delicious Cafe Milagro you may order it online and we will ship it to your front door. Pura Vida! More

Good food and drinks with a great patio and live music. Visited multiple times! Prices in Manuel Antonio are a little higher than other places in Costa Rica but still worth it.

We had only one opportunity to eat breakfast out while visiting the area. I'm so glad we chose Cafe Milagro. The food was fantastic, the service superb, and the coffee the best I've had in Costa Rica!!!
