The Miracle Cafe - Reading, Kansas

The Miracle Cafe was opened in the oldest home of Reading, Kansas in the summer of 2006. It was built by the people of the Reading community who donated their time, energy and skills to make the home into a cafe. Reta Jackson took over management of the small restaurant in early 2010.

The home housing the Miracle Cafe was destroyed by the Reading tornado on May 21, 2011, but has been replaced with a brand new structure which is purpose built to be a restaurant. Much of the work was done by "angel" members of the community. 

The menu and hours of the Miracle Cafe are fairly short. Friday is the only day that it is open for supper and on the Friday evenings there is Mexican Special of Taco, Burrito & Chips and Queso with the Salad Bar and Coffee or Tea included for $9.50. The pies may be the best item on the menu.

The food is just simple home cooking, but I love the friendly atmosphere. The tables have flyers with the history of Reading. There is Reading memorabilia including a large three ring binder which has a more detailed history with newspaper clippings, memorial funeral cards and a hand written list of deaths in the community. The K-State Wildcat theme unisex bathroom has a large banner signed by restaurant guests.
