Simple Delicious!

Loved breakfast at Stella's! A variety of delicious choices for every taste! Really good coffee and service! Also a really good location for bird and animal watching right at the back garden, we got to see Trogons, euphonias, quetzals, hummingbirds, squirrel cuckoo, white-eared ground sparrow... read more

Loved breakfast at Stella's! A variety of delicious choices for every taste! Really good coffee and service! Also a really good location for bird and animal watching right at the back garden, we got to see Trogons, euphonias, quetzals, hummingbirds, squirrel cuckoo, white-eared ground sparrow, agoutis, and even a coati mundi!!

I just walked in to check it out. The pleasant young man working told me what each of the baked goods were - and the main ingredients. I bought a brownie and a cinnamon bun, and they were both excellent. Did not eat in the cafe today - but will tomorrow. Menu looks good.

Had the passionfruit cheesecake. Was absolutely delicious. Lovely place to sit after a morning hike. Lunch looked good as well.

Stopped in for a light lunch. Enjoyed black soup. My husband ordered a roast beef sandwich and it came with a ham-like meat which we were assured is close to roast beef.. Overall, a good meal in a layed back café.

After a morning tour of the cloud forest, we walked to this nice bakery/restaurant. We had delicious sandwiches and smoothies while sitting watching birds come to the feeders.

Based on a review in Fodor's, we decided to stop at Stella's on our way out of Monteverde. It's a little out of the way, down one of the omnipresent dirt roads, but well worth the trip. I'm not a coffee drinker, so can't comment on that, but the cinnamon rolls are amazing! Staff is very friendly and the restaurant... More

A little off the paved road but well worth the short jostle down. The best cup of bottomless coffee we had in CR. Staff is super friendly and will speak to you in perfect slow understandable Spanish if you prefer and then back it up with equally perfect English. A mini Spanish lesson flanked in wonderful food, atmosphere, and coffee!... More
