The delicious pastries available at Stellas after a long, bumpy ride getting to Monteverde makes it very special.

Closest to where we were staying at Trapp Lodge, we were happy to find this quaint bakery where we enjoyed lasagna and soup. It warmed our bodies and rested our souls with good food and a quiet atmosphere. Took home a delicious carrot cake to have later in the room. Nice place, small menu but delicious food and baked goods.

We had coffee, tea, and pastries one afternoon. The sweet rolls were so good that we came back the next day and got more to take with us to our next stop. So, so good! My only comment is that no one offered my husband a second cup of coffee. We were there for awhile and it just wasn't offered.... More

My husband and I had driven by Stella's Bakery several times in the tour buses and on this afternoon we walked from town to the hotel purposely so we could stop at Stella's and we were NOT disappointed! The coffee was the best we had in the area and the sweets/baked goods were better than what we hoped for.

Great little place to eat! I came late in the afternoon for a late lunch. Very good food! Everything on the menu sounded good. The iced coffee was great! The cheese cake is an absolute must have! Oh yeah, the staff are incredible! Friendly, helpful, great to chat with. I will definitely be back on my next trip

The service was great at this little place. The sandwiches were really good, and we split a piece of passionfruit cheesecake-it was excellent, especially with the crunchy seeds on top.

We stumbled into Stella's by accident. Everything is fresh and homemade. They do custom sandwiches, choose your bread and ingredients and pay only for what you want. Their signature soup was delicious - a tomato base with avocado, chicken and cheese. Baking is all homemade. Yummy. Very fair prices.
