About

In 1993, Chef/Owner Kerry Altiero decided to open a restaurant that is fueled by his passion for great food, multi-culture cuisines, his Italian heritage and Rockland, Maine. He and his family renovated the historic Owl Benevolent and Fraternal Club (an interesting story for another time) located at 15 Oak Street in the heart of downtown Rockland. The result is an edgy and intimate multi-cultural cuisine restaurant that has become habitual for residents and visitors alike.

Chef Altiero oversees a large, seasonal and culturally diverse menu featuring fresh local ingredients, house-made pastas, and signature foccacia bread that are made daily in Café Miranda’s wood fired oven. At Café Miranda, you won’t have to settle for the mundane – dinners range from simple, fresh fare to adventurous dishes that deliver the punch and unexpected potential of each ingredient. Chef Altiero was named the 2015 Down east Magazine Maine Chef of the Year, is a recent winner of the Maine Lobster Council Lobster Chef of the Year and Harvest on the Harbor Top of the Crop – Best Farm To Table Restaurant. Chef Kerry is the author of the cookbook Adventures in Comfort Food. Additionally, Chef Kerry is the co-host of NOSH, a VSTV food and cooking show.

Café Miranda is local to its core, practices sustainability, and is recognized as an Environmental Leader by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection. Vegetables come from Chef Altiero’s own Headacre Farm as well as other area farms while meats and seafood are sourced throughout the region.

Inside Café Miranda is funky, edgy and eclectic – this is not your white table cloth sort of place. We want you to laugh out loud, enjoy, engage and leave with a belly full of food that has comforted your soul.

Edgy, friendly and always delicious – we are Café Miranda. Because we can.

THANK YOU FOR 29 YEARS OF PATRONAGE!
We had a great crew, a great place, the best customers in the best town, and it is time for us to pass the torch, for someone else to own this magical location and spirit. The flame is still burning in the oven and in our hearts. It is time for someone else to see what 15 Oak Street can do for them, like the thousands for whose lives Cafe Miranda has touched and transformed.
The future is in process. Stay tuned. We may be available for some catered events in late summer/autumn, and may open the doors for the occasional pop-up supper over the coming months. We are currently in hibernation, but if you would like to get in touch with us, email info@cafemiranda.
We know that Cafe Miranda has meant a lot to this community. You have meant the world to us. Thank you.
