Monteverde, being a tourist/backpacker town, has plenty of places that seem to fall into two main categories...cheap sodas and taco stands that cater to the budget conscious, and pricier restos that charge North American level prices. The Orchid Cafe is a real little gem. Located on the road to Monteverde past the Santa Elena downtown triangle, this quaint and funky... More

We went to this sweet cafe on our last morning in Monteverde, and it was perfect! I ordered the banana pancakes, and have to say they were among the best cakes I've ever had. The service was friendly and relaxing, and I loved the design and setting of the place...very peaceful and tranquil, just outside of the heart of Santa... More

Happened to stumble upon this great little cafe and so glad we did! Was nice to see a range of healthy, tasty-sounding salads, pitas and juices on the menu too. I had a great turkey and pesto pita (which also came with a vibrant and delicious side salad) and my husband had a yummy (although somewhat spicy) Thai chicken salad.... More

Fantastic crepes, fresh fruits, fun and tasty breakfast coffee drinks. Dessert for breakfast, why not? :)

We ate at several places in Santa Elena that all had sub-par food. This place satisfied my hankering for a delicious, healthy and vital meal. The staff was so sweet and attentive. They were bilingual yet happy to let me practice my Spanish. They also played a lovely jazz station. Beautiful quaint setting tucked into a nook off the main... More

We went for breakfast here on December 2, 2014 and here is my take: eggs are eggs, order whatever style you want, the sauce will taste different but eggs are still eggs. The crepe we ordered was the strawberry, banana and Nutella one and that is what it was, strawberry, banana and Nutella. That said, the reason to come here... More

We visited this place on a Sunday and we had a great time. The service was friendly and explained everything about the local ingredients. His recommendations where also very good. From coffee, the special naranja cake and pollo crepe. It was tastefull and fresh. It is a "hidden" gem as it is located just outside the touristical centre, so we... More

Their coffee is spot on and their cheesecake is heavenly. I tried the blackberry one and was savoring every bite! The staff is also very friendly, this is a great spot to hang out and catch up on work if needed!
