Fodor's Review

In 1993, university students Adrienne Pellizzari and Lance Byron first came to Manuel Antonio on a summer vacation, but it was their quest for good coffee and cuisine that made them stay. In the end, they created their own milagro (miracle) blend, making this cozy café the only place in town that serves its own fresh-roasted coffee. The eclectic menu is heavy on vegetarian and organic dishes, like chilled avocado soup, mango chayote salad, and grilled vegetables with quinoa. They also serve roasted pork with sautéed papaya and dorado with a Caribbean salsa. The breakfast burritos, baked goods, and inventive selection of sandwiches make this a top breakfast and lunch spot. Tables in the front dining room overlook the road, but there's also seating in the back garden. They have craft beers on tap, and there's live music Monday through Saturday from 7 pm to 9 pm. The attached store and their small coffee roaster in Quepos sell bags of their award-winning coffee to take home.
