Cafe Orchid was one of the best places I've been to, not just in Costa Rica but anywhere. I stayed in Monteverde 3 days and I made sure to go every single day. The desserts were to die for and the coffees were incredible. I also had lunch there one of the days and it did not disappoint either. The... More

After finishing the Don Juan Coffee Tour we needed something to fuel us before the Skytrek Ziplining. This is a gem offering delicious organic food. It is not to be missed when visiting Monteverde.

The food is healthy and delicious. I also loved the loose leaf tea, which was delicious. Loose leaf teas are pretty difficult to find in the area and Costa Rica in general, so it is a special treat.

Monteverde feels like a young village, with a lot of backpackers, young people and a chill ambiance. The Orchid bar is one of those places that helps make it this place. Great staff, delicious food and desserts in a super cosy Instagram like feel😊 If you are in Monteverde this is your stop for breakfast, lunch or tea break😊 They... More
