Amazing Smoothies

We enjoyed breakfast at Stella's while visiting Monteverde. Glenda was so welcoming and we absolutely loved the smoothies!

This is a must-visit in Monteverde. My husband ordered the house soup and I built my own sandwich- I did feel it was a bit pricey for what we received but hey, we were on vacation! Both were delicious. We had cool Imperial beers in the garden (great ambiance) and ordered a lemon bar for dessert (which was divine!) Overall-... More

We had breakfast here with omelettes, home made jam (delicious) with toast and the local meal gallo pinto bith with coffee and juice. It was excellent and we would come here again.

Stopped in for a coffee and a dessert. Both were great! The view from the outdoor seating in the back of the restaurant was wonderful. Wild life in the trees, birds coming down to the feeders.

Great breakfast after a morning of bird watching. Stella's baked goods, eggs and coffee hit the spot!

Stella' Bakery was a treasure we found while on holiday from Scotland, UK! An unexpected place to come across where you can eat delicious, freshly made foods (particularly wonderful baking) while carrying on with your bird-watching in the garden. This place helped us clock up even more exotic birds as they have provided a patio area which attracts many exotic... More

We came to see the hummingbird garden, but the garden was gone. Not as described. Coffee and cake were dry. The service was slow.

We visited here after reading the reviews on TA and also having visited the co-operative opposite the bakery the day before. Service was slow (even for CR and there was only one family of 4 in there other than us). The brownie was mediocre & the chocolate cake just OK. Most disappointing was the batidos con leche banano (banana milkshake)... More

The cooks/waiters were the kindest people... We had coffee and cake and it was all so fresh and yummy... Wish we had stayed long enough in town to get lunch/breakfast, it looked awesome. Totally recommend this cute little find with some awesome food:-)

Wonderful pastries and delicious sandwiches are just the beginning. The owner is constantly working on bettering her offerings and now they even serve dinner. Plates for all palets from meat lovers to vegetarians.
