Centrally located in La Fortuna town, this is a quaint cafe/restaurant with good food. Local dishes as well as the standard (tasty) burgers too, it will suit everyone. Friendly staff and good prices

We enjoyed cheesecakes and smoothies, the cheesecakes were good and the smoothies OK, but not exceptional. The place was clean and they staff friendly, but it was more pricey than other places localy.

Very good food - everything made in house - and reasonable prices. We kept going back! My daughter ordered the tomato soup all 3 times - serious comfort food :) Exceeded expectations!

We ate at this restaurant three times while in Monteverde/Santa Elena. We had paninis, soup, smoothies, chai latte and dessert. We were never disappointed because the service and servers were wonderful to us. We enjoyed the paninis which were on house made bread served with a generous green salad which was always fresh. The chai latte was the best I've... More

The second day it was queso fresco with tortilla (sort of like an arepa) and plantains with queso fresco. Again stellar. My husband had the fresh yogurt which was also very... More

My husband and I wanted to eat outside in the shade....the only table available in the shade was a 4 person table. As we started to sit down, we were told to take the 2 person table - which was in full sun. When we explained I could not tolerate full sun, the rejoinder was well, if 4 people come... More

I had read previous reviews so I guess I was expecting more. I had the Turkey Avocado Panini & it was pretty good (I've had better), my friend ordered the Chicken Spinach Crepe which was very bland. I had noticed some poor reviews regarding the service but our waiter was very nice & attentive. Neither of us tried the coffee... More

It was my first time in Costa Rica and although I do love eating the local food, I do miss some healthy alternatives when travelling. The Cafe Orchid is a perfect place to get both! They had excellent food and very yummy that was healthy and local. Plus great desserts if you want too. Eduardo was my friends and Is... More
