After a long drive from the Coast, we stopped for lunch at Café Orchid. 5 hungry, tired travelers. Well this place did not disappoint in any way whatsoever. Service was spot-on: friendly, prompt and delightful. Coffee drinks superb (oh the mocha!!), smoothies fabulous, food outstanding! All 5 of us could not stop raving about it and now that we're back... More

The place is so cozy sitting there and having a cup of coffee, tea, lattes, with exquisite cakes, is something you have to try in Monteverde. The waiter was so nice recommending all kind of delicious treats. The orchid garden in the back is also a must. The miniature orchids you will see with a magnifying glass they give you... More

Ate here once for lunch. What a great way to break from daytime activities in Monteverde! Can't imagine anywhere better for lunch, this place is more than a coffeeshop. The food isn't cheap by any means, but it is very good. The drinks were also excellent - big, fresh fruit smoothies! Diverse menu with healthy and tasty options. Recommend, hope... More

We stopped in to this cafe one afternoon to get out of the rain. I had the chai latte which was absolutely amazing and my boyfriend had a mocha which was equally delicious. We liked the place so much we came back that same night for dessert and tea and also the next morning to get chai lattes to go!

This Cafe is the perfect place to grab a smoothie or coffee or an entire meal and hang out. It feels like you're sitting in an artist's quant bungalow with both indoor and outdoor seating. The smoothies are delicious, fresh, and made of only whole foods and the coffee is delicious. I highly recommend the Costa Rican coffee and the... More

Excellent coffee? Yes! But the pastries and desserts, breakfasts, panini's and soups and other food turned out in this small little hut are just amazing. Our favorite place in Monteverde! I think we visited each day we were here. (we are kind of a coffee shop family) Try the traditional Costa Rican drip coffee at least once, its made at... More

I wish we had a cafe as good as this here. The food was excellent, made with the freshest of local fruits and vegetables, with cheese from the local cheese factory and absolutely great coffee, with beans from local plantations, the best coffee in a place that has great coffee overall. The egg nog cake (they may not have it... More
