Miracle Mile Cafe. Peruvian Delights in San Rafael, CA

A great find in on the outskirts of downtown San Rafael, California, the Miracle Mile Cafe is a nondescript comfort food cafe serving Peruvian delicacies AND Gluten Free dishes. Had to have the gluten free waffles, which were delightful. Crunchy, hearty and flavorful, with just the right amount of maple syrup. The owner, Ginger Ann, is passionate about her food and welcomes folks to try their own “Homemade Goodness”. Open for breakfast and lunch during the week, and dinners on Friday and Saturday.
