“Fresh Costa Rican Cuisine”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We have been in Costa Rican for 15 days. We ate at Cafe Milagro 7 times. It's kid friendly and the food is excellent. I like the Fish Tacos - the mahi mahi is cooked to perfection served with wonderful fresh ingredients and the guacamole is truly wonderful. My husband tried something different every night . We also really liked the Cream of Plantains Soup. Really excellent coffee too.

“Excellent Food.... not so friendly service”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We had heard such great recommendations about Cafe Milagro from both locals and tourists alike. It was just around the corner from the Tulemar Resort so my wife and I excitedly went there for breakfast. The cappuccino was excellent! The breakfast food quality was very good.... The server seemed to be tolerating us at best! In the hopes that I could win her over, I attempted my poor excuse for Spanish while ordering... no dice! She was just as coldly tolerant of us as before. We definitely did not feel welcome.
But being the 'Polly-Anna' tourists that we were, we convinced ourselves that someone was just having an off-morning and we went back 2 days later.... No change. Great food! Excellent Cappuccino! Mildly Hostile service!
Oh Well...
We still place the experience in the Win category with a Very Good overall rating.

The Great:
- Excellent Cappuccino; great food quality

The No-So-Great:
- Unfriendly / offish staff

Thank you for the great feedback! By chance could you let us know the days you visited and a general time as well? One of the pillars of our company is kick butt service. If we're not doing that well then that's no good for anyone. We appreciate you taking the time and in the future, call on the owner in the moment as it's the best way for us to turn your experience around!

“Great!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Great food! Unique flavors And comftable atmosphere. It was exactly what we wanted, great coffee where you don't feel pressured with souvenirs. We originally were only going for coffee,until we started seeing everyone else's plates. We ended up getting 8 appetizers! Lol and drinks! Everything was amazing!

So glad you could enjoy the full Milagro experience! We have added many layers over our 19 years when we started out just roasting coffee. It has been a wonderful business to build and making you happy is the backbone of everything we do! Please come back soon and you can also order more coffee via our website. We will ship it to your door!
