Tasty desserts with very friendly services

Stella Bakery had breakfast and lunch menu including lasagna, but we stopped here for the dessert. It was in a contemporary style setting, wooden tables/chairs on a raised up floor, plenty of good natural light. There were many desserts in display.

The bakery has wonderful pastries and coffee. We also ate lunch here and had a great salad, empanadas, and desserts. The real treat are the mammals that loiter politely in a safe area just outside and... Quetzals that eat native avocados in the tree right next door.

Me and my friends topped by Stella's bakery in Monteverde for breakfast and had a delicious breakfast served to us by Luis. He was a super helpful, polite and provided quick service as well.

The baked goods and smoothies were outstanding. I had a wonderful croissant as a snack after a long morning of hiking at a park nearby. Also, we returned for breakfast a different day, and it was excellent. Service was great, food was delicious and we even saw a resplendent quetzal in the backyard.

Clean, friendly surroundings and just 5 mins walk from Curi-Cancha. Fresh juices and good coffee with a variety of a snack from the bakery or you can choose to eat from the breakfast and lunch menu. I went for the garden salad, which was fresh and filling.

We stopped in for an early lunch and had delicious quiche, squash soup and hearty sandwiches. The young waiter was super helpful and not only identified the picture we had just taken of a Coral [poisonous] snake, but took us into the back garden to show us a QUETZAL! The brownies, by the way, were scrumptious!

We stopped for coffee and desert. The food is out of this world!!! The staff are super nice and very helpful. I recommend the brownies. This would be a great refueling stop after hiking in the cloud forest.

Nothing better than to end the best bird watching tour ever at Ficus Trails here at Stella's Bakery with a tasty, home made breakfast and an excellent service. After hiking through beautiful trails and enjoying the cloud forest at Ficus Trails you just drive down the road and all your energy will be restored as you relax watching more birds... More
