“another review?”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

If there's one thing Cafe Miranda doesn't need it's another review - it's bubbling along perfectly fine, thank you very much. If you haven't been, do go - and make a reservation. It's small and popular, and walk-ins don't have much luck. It is such an unprepossessing place that you don't expect such fine food and service. The list of possibilities is longer and more varied than seems possible to come from such a small kitchen - menus and printed specials are already on your table, and the friendly servers are right there to take your order. We go every year and never regret it. Portions are large - you could easily split a small salad order for example. But you can always take the neaten part home. It's noisy inside (there's an outside section) but somehow it contributes to the atmosphere. This is not a place to linger. Enjoy!

“Beers Only”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

We had some beers and chatted with many of the staff members. They had a large beer selection-local and others. They were knowledgeable of the town and local areas. The menu seemed a little pricey, the portions were huge from what we saw.

“Another over priced hipster joint.”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

We are visiting the area on summer vacation, and read great reviews on the place. Said "kid friendly", so we went for it. Well it was very cool looking place, but could tell it was not organized or ran well, as we stood at the door for 5 minutes waiting for someone to seat us. Then we were seated, and it took 15 for someone to take an order. It then took 30 min to get our appetizers. Finally 45 min we received our dinner. So having two kids at a place for over 90 min was not very kid friendly. Food was nothing great. Pricey as well, but that's the norm in the area.

“Never disappointed!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

We had a wonderful meal and fantastic service once again. We sat at the bar. So much fun to watch the chefs here...working magic. We always make it a point to eat here when we are in town. This was the first place we visited this time. Well done Cafe Miranda!!!!
