“Awesome end to our vacation”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

We took a trip up to el Boqueron National Park and decided to have lunch here on our way down. The setting on the mountainside is lush and we were happily surprised by the plant nursery at the front of the property. This much more than a restaurant.
A small museum is set up in the main house along with the original clay ovens used to roast coffee. There were stems of birds-of-paradise flowers everywhere and there are rooms which can be used for private meetings and parties. There's a gorgeous fountain in the center courtyard.

As the day was somewhat cloudy and cool on the mountain, we had soup. The chicken soup was hearty and full of chicken and vegetables. The shrimp soup was thoroughly flavourful with big portions of shrimp and sweet green leafy vegetables in a tomato base. Our meals were accompanied by tortillas and nachos as well as thick hot chocolate which was perfect as we looked out over the San Salvador valley. We ended with excellent coffee from the plantation. We picked up 2 lbs to take home!

The price was great-3 people lunch with apps and dessert-under 25$ including tip. Note that they add a 10% tip automatically to the bill but we had such a great experience that we wanted to leave a little bit more-the service was attentive and friendly. Plenty of photo ops with the luxury of taking your time to set up. We will be back to try their dinner menu on our next visit.

Reviewed November 17, 2010

This restaurants explotes one of the qualities of el salvador, its really close to the city, its about 20 minutes from san salvador, located in a beautifull mountain, the weather is really good!

It has canopy and other things that you can enjoy there, like the nature, great hot coffee, but the food is the worst, I ordered meat and it was cold, when I told the waiter she gots mad, and I had to wait 25 minutes more to have my meat with the correct temperatute....

“A pearl of tranquillity and nice foods”
Reviewed January 8, 2010

Cafe' Miranda is located on the way to Volcan of San Salvador. It's a old 'finca' for processing coffee, still operative. The place is wonderful, with a mirable view over coffe plantations down to the land. The cafe' restaurant is set among beautiful tropical gardens, displayed over different terrazas, in and outdoor. They also sell some souvenir, mainly clay-pots from Chalatenango. It was then a big surprise to dicover the excellent food they served at average price. I can say one of the best place visited here in El Salvador. For flowers and plants lovers tehy also sell plants.I know there is also Canopy office there, which organize cable trip from tree to tree in the forest at a cost of 25$ all inclusive.
