We really enjoyed this familly run restaurant. The ambient is very calming with wooden furniture, big windows to green garden and pleasant music. The staff is kind and helpful, explaining all the food and cakes with patients. The food was excellent, fresh, tasty, nicely served. The coffee was top-quality and we'll prepared. And the cake I took was just perfect.... More

We spent 4 days in Monteverde and we ate at Stella's at least 1x/day. The food is very good, pastries are excellent and the mochaccino is a must!!! I also highly recommend their typical breakfast, gallo pinto.

Fresh salads, delicious fruit drinks, and hearty, healthy sandwiches. Feeders in the back attract birds and butterflies. The baked goods are yummy!

They were a rare restaurant open on Sunday Mid-afternoon when we arrived. The veggie quiche was excellent, with a nice salad and mango smoothie, and cold beer! Coffee was excellent, baked goods were very good. Service was very friendly. They served breakfast in the afternoon and my kids loved the pancakes.

This bakery was just lovely. The service was great (although I spent quite some time making my mind) and the food was yummy.

Great food especially before or after a long day of hiking in Cloud Forest. Some good vegetarian options too!

Stella's was warm and inviting, and Glenda was informative and helpful. The coconut pineapple pie was fantastic, as were the cheese croissant and gooey cinnamon roll. I would strongly recommend ducking in out of the rain for treats!

Way off the beaten path, but well worth finding this little gem of the rainforest. We tried a little bit of everything. We decided to stop by here on our way to the coast and am glad we did. We ordered everything from their cookies to their sandwiches. I would highly recommend going here if you're in Monteverde.

I was having lunch in the área with my grooup. Afterwards, I decided to go across the driveway to Stella's Bakery. I'm happy I did. The staff was very friendly, and the carmel treat was yummy. I brought a piece of chocolate cake for later, and it was to die for. I love Stella's Bakery! I suggest finding this bakery,... More
