The food was delicious, staff friendly and the restaurant itself comfortable and clean. A nice quiet patio in the back with butterflies and hummingbirds

Stopped in after a 3 hour morning hike in the reserve. Found the menu offerings to be plentiful and provided our family of four, choices that replenished us in preparation for a long drive down the mountain. Fresh delicious salad ingredients (arugula! Carrots! Tomatoes!) quiche, lasagna, sandwiches and a few postres para llevar! Great food, friendly, tasty!

If you are in Monteverde, don't miss Stella's Bakery! We loved their pastries! Where else can you get mango pie or passion fruit cheesecake or pineapple pie! We were thrilled! But there's more- they have a bird feeder that attracts tropical birds you might miss otherwise!

We had lunch at Stella's Bakery. I had a tomato based soup... absolutely delicious! I think the cheese was the best part. The coffee was excellent too. A very simply cafe - but excellent food. I would definitely stop here again.

Stopped at Stella's Bakery for a super pot of coffee and delicious carrot cake after 5 hour hike in Monteverde Reserve. Coffee so good I even bought some beans. Great place for watching various species of birds at their feeders. Saw more birds here than Monteverde, even the blue headed Mott Mot. Got some great pics. Nice choice of good... More

This restaurant was recommended by the staff at our hotel. It is a family owned and operated place. Our server was Christopher (the son of the owners) and he was excellent. He was friendly and attentive. He offered and demonstrated a coffee brewing; explaining the proper way to brew coffee and why. It was entertaining and the coffee was delicious.... More

This is a terrific coffee spot close to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. The coffee was excellent and desserts looked yummy -- we did not eat there. Best of all were the bird feeders outside the shop which was delightful. A Monteverde institution.

Great atmosphere, excellent service, excellent taste. The recipes are very original, incorporating local fruits and 100% real and natural. Nice garden and bird watching too! We will come back! Your trip is not complete if you don't stop at Stella's.

After being advised by a local, we stopped at Stella’s Bakery for lunch. We ordered the Spinach and Bacon Quiché, along with the Tomato and Chicken Soup. The flavors were positively fantastic.
