Very good bakery in an unexpected location

We just picked up pastries at the end of the day, and didn't eat in the restaurant but there was still a a great selection of tempting possibilities. A really nice treat, and very unexpected to have such a good bakery in a relatively remote rainforest location. A great place to have a break!

Came here for a good soup after few hours in the forest. the menu on their web site was definitely promising with tons of soup options. In reality there was a limited menu, and only two soup options, very average size portions and taste. tomato soup felt like an instant one. the sandwiches where also just OK.... and on that... More

Someone told us to stop here for mango shakes. The shakes were good. Didn't think they were life-changing. We didn't eat, but food looked ok. Service was a little slow.

Build your own sandwich on a choice of fresh breads or have local organic salads or fresh quiche all washed down with great coffees and amazing brownies and more. Would have given it 5 stars but the service was a little slower than I would have liked and we were in a bit of a rush - second time we... More

Stella Bakery had breakfast and lunch menu including lasagna, but we stopped here for the dessert. It was in a contemporary style setting, wooden tables/chairs on a raised up floor, plenty of good natural light. There were many desserts in display. The staff explained each patiently multiple times (we were not the most decisive family). We ended up ordering pineapple... More

The bakery has wonderful pastries and coffee. We also ate lunch here and had a great salad, empanadas, and desserts. The real treat are the mammals that loiter politely in a safe area just outside and... Quetzals that eat native avocados in the tree right next door.
