“Great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

I used to live in West Ames, and this was the best place to study. Milo is one of the VERY FEW cafes in Ames that allows people to plug their computers in. Their coffee drinks and bakery items are also delicious!

“Best place to study in West Ames!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

When you go to Cafe Milo, you get amazing service and atmosphere. It's a perfect place to study or catch up with a friend. Their espresso drinks are well made and the food is good. I've never been disappointed.

“Nice people, nice atmosphere, average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

Ive now eaten twice at Cafe Milo and had the same experience both times. Average, bland food with friendly service. I'll go there for coffee, but not to eat.

“Best smoothies in town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

I used to come here frequently because my friend would play acoustic sets, but it was only recently that I discovered the magic of their smoothies. Their coffee is good, their food is good, but their smoothies are amazing. The ambiance is nice - it's small enough to be cozy, but big enough that you don't feel like you're accidentally eavesdropping on every single other conversation around you. Highly recommend.

“Roast Beef Reuben is to Die For!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2012

Had to go back on two consecutive days because the Roast Beef Reuben and Tomato Basil Bisque soup was just too good to keep to myself! Son had the hot roast beef and loved that, but hub trusted me and was glad he did. I'm a big reuben fan and couldn't imagine it without the corn beef, but now I can't imagine getting a reuben anywhere but here.
Relaxing atomosphere with a fireplace surrounded by comfy chairs. Students at work with their lap tops. VERY relaxing!
Huge menu, we'll definitely be back to try more of it!
