This flan was made by the people at Milagro’s Café, which opened about a month ago at 3156 E. Fort Lowell Road. I was compelled to stop in after I’d heard the place would be the first restaurant in town to serve coffee by Café Aqui, a small microroastery on South Sixth Avenue that turns out some really killer java.
Milagro's Cafe serves Sonoran-style Mexican food, and our lunch was very good. But I’ll be stopping in on a regular basis, because the owners are some of the nicest people I’ve met in a long time. The place's mission statement includes a sentence about working with nonprofits to make Tucson a better place to live. The owners are currently ironing out plans to help Karin Elliott continue with her mission to feed the homeless.
The place’s hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday; and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sunday. There are daily lunch specials for $4.95, and sometimes you can get a breakfast burrito for less than $2.
