Very tasty early morning take out. Barrista took the time to warm our cinnamon rolls and they were great. If other items are as good as it was, it's definitely a place to visit if in Monteverde.

Stopped here for lunch with our group of 9 birdwatchers. Food was fresh, delicious, organic, full of flavor and plentiful. The owner was intimately involved in the service and you can tell that she truly cares. I had a smoothie and salad that were both totally delicious. Others had sandwiches, soups and other pastries which were also fantastic. Great service,... More

My family and I really enjoyed the food here! We ate breakfast and it was a nice start to our day of hiking in the forest. Bathrooms were a little dirty however... other than that we will be going there again this morning!

The hotel we stayed at recommended this bakery and it was perfect. We had breakfast there a couple times and went back to grab pastries and coffees many times after. The traditional breakfast is recommended as well as their smoothies. The staff were great and we even got a lesson on how to make the perfect cup of coffee!

But really enjoyed the chocolate croissants and coffee as well!!! Also bought coffee and chocolate bars too!! This stop was included in a bird tour we signed up for. Lots of birders on the patio! Few birds to be seen though. But worth the stop.

French toast and pancakes our kids loved, delicious and innovative meals for adults too. I was finding I could not get enough fresh vegetables in restaurant choices, until I met Stella's. Beautiful salad and fresh veg ingredients grown on the restaurant site. Choose the outdoor tables, and keep your eyes out for Emerald toucanets and blue crowned mot-mots and more.... More

We had stayed at El Bosque and Daniel had recommended we go here for breakfast. I'm so glad he did! We walked in and were immediately greeted group of other tourists that we NEEDED to go outside, there was a bunch of monkeys "stealing" breakfast from the birds. We were then greeted by a hostess who asked us if we... More
