Saw this highly rated bakery was in between our hotel and the Curi Cancha reserve so my best friend and I stopped in on our way to the Reserve for a late breakfast. The decor is so lovely, all wood and clean and just super cute. A lot of the breakfast options include coffee in price plus the owner pointed... More

New and clean decor. Limited bakery items but decent selection of eggs, etc. and coffee for a quick breakfast. Friendly staff. Across the street from a small market and craft coop.

We had lunch and dinner at Stella's and wish we could have visited again. Food is freshly baked and made each day, with a great selection of dishes from locally sourced ingredients. The staff are friendly and there's a little garden area at the back. Worth buying some coffee beans to take home too.

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!
