We were for a few days in Monteverde and came by thing lovely place. It's amazing, the coffee is great, but the bread was super! In Costa Rica every bakery has only white bread and the brown bread is nog really brown. At Stella's bakery they sell the best whole-wheat bread I've tasted in another country. Beside the good food,... More

Organic, healthy, and interesting food made Stella's a favorite for my parents and I on a two week stay in Monteverde. Great staff and the carrot cake was to die for. We had lunch and breakfast here several times and the quality was consistently delicious. Great staff too.

Lovely atmosphere.....good coffee, tea and homemade desserts (apple pie was a hit). Great for a rainy afternoon, just get there before it closes at 6:00pm

Visited Stella's for lunch on our way back from Monteverde Cloud forest. Very friendly staff. Tried farmers salad that surprisingly came with some flowers in it and it was delicious. Plain croissants and a croissant trout sandwich were perfect. Kids enjoyed drawing on a blackboard.

We stopped here before driving up to our rental house. The prices are a little high, but the brownies were lived by my kids. I had a banana bread with a coconut and Carmel like sauce on top and it was amazing!

You are a fool if you don't stop here on your way to the Monteverde Cloud Forest. We stopped that morning (she opens before the park does) and loved our various pastries and coffees so much that we drove out of our way to stop there before leaving town. Try the chocolate croissants, they are heavenly. And, you can take... More

I wanted to try this place based on tripadvisor reviews. Coming from the cloud forest we tried lunch of three different wraps and cappuccinos. Service was prompt, and they spoke fine english. But I think this was expensive and the food did not leave a lasting impression on me.The ice tea also had an odd taste to it. I'm not... More

We stopped by Stellas a few times while staying steps away at El Bosque. The people are very friendly and welcoming. We got the kids some treats at their bakery and every one was delicious! The next day, we came back for breakfast. Unreal. The french toast and homemade syrup were perfect. Happy Mom, happy kids!
