This coffee shop has an interesting menu that offers a change of pace from the "soda" offerings of rice, beans & empanadas. They had panninis with a lot of choices for fillings. The bread was soft and buttery. The side salad was really tasty. You MUST order dessert (we had the chocolate cheesecake) and coffee. The coffee is prepared at... More

I can't ever remember what we had to eat, but I know it was delicious. The smoothies and te frio were so great that we stopped by the next day just to get another cold drink. Great relaxing atmosphere, and too small for tour buses!

What's not to like? Great food, great coffee, great service, and free wifi. In particular, the desserts were outrageous.

So had nice tea, while my hubby, who has a sweet tooth decided to go for crepes. wow, wasn't it amazing. Banana and cinnamon crepes were soo delicious. yum... More

After being in Costa Rica for a week eating a lot of black beans and rice, Café Orchid was a breath of fresh air with their yummy menu! I ordered their Mochiotto Fria and it was tasty! My daughter and I split the Panini Turkey Sandwich and tomato soup. Needless to say, we were getting a little greedy with the... More

Everything about this place is great and consistent! Coffee is the best and a huge range, a massive range of teas, delicious food options and lovely people who own and work there too. This place is a little slice of Monteverde heaven.

This restaurant's name and location do not give any idea of its quality. My friend and I are from the San Francisco Bay Area and are pretty used to good food. What Beatrix Salazar, the chef and co-owner, serves is equal to if not better than anything we have in the Bay Area. The soup, the crepe and the salad... More
