This place was very close to our hotel (Arco Iris Lodge) so we decided to stop in for lunch. It was great! The service was good, the smoothie was good & both of our sandwiches were good. The sandwiches were very large though so we could have definitely gotten away with sharing one.

The service was very good just the second time I'm sure I ordered a mango smoothie but the waiter brought me a pineapple smoothe but I didn't... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the Orchid. We both had the crepe (strawberry, banana, almond and Nutella) which was excellent. The traditional coffee was perfectly complimented by the sweetness of the crepe. The service was great as well. We were sad that we only found this place on our last day in Monteverde.

We visit this places for an afternoon coffee and early breakfast (opens at 8am, fyi) We enjoyed good food and nice service, totally recommend this place if your are looking for a place to chill out and enjoy the food, great atmosphere! Is not the cheapest place you can go, but totally worth your money!

Good food and very cute atmosphere. Slightly expensive for casual food, but that seems to be the case in most touristy areas. We enjoyed it.

They offer several choices for coffee aficionados. The breakfasts are all made to order and the selection is overwhelming.

My family and I ate there twice. On both occasions, everyone's food was terrific. Service the first time was fantastic, but it was odd the 2nd time: the waiter did not tell us until after the meal that this time we needed to pay cash (we used a credit card the first the time). The check was a long time... More

We stopped here after visiting the Orchid Garden - makes a lovely chilled afternoon. Service was typical Tican style (slower than you expect from the UK but normal for here). Food was lovely, coffee great & banana smoothie (2000 colons) was scrummy (served in a drinking jar!). Chicken curry crepe very good (5000 colons). Panini's look great - going back... More

We came here on our first day in Santa Elena for lunch. I had the chicken & pineapple salad - absolutely delicious. It was ginormous, so fresh & lots of different ingredients. My husband had a turkey panini which he also said was delicious. We thought the prices were a bit high (we had just come from Nicaragua) but after... More
