Just finished lunch here with my family. Our two young girls had fresh bagels with peanut butter and homemade marmalade, my partner loved her soup (changes daily) and "build your own sub" I had with fresh baked bread and a multitude of fresh ingredients was amazing! The ambiance is very relaxing. One has the option to sit inside or to... More

We split a delicious lasagna (with chicken, but you can get it with veggies or beef). It was very fresh and hot. The papaya juice was the tastiest I've ever drank. The pineapple pie and passion fruit cheesecake were both delicious, also. Service was friendly and attentive. They have lots of windows facing the back garden, which is frequented by... More

Been here twice already on our 4 day stop in Monteverde. The first time we had some lovely sandwiches and today we went for breakfast - we had the national dish Gallo Pinto (beans and rice) which was excellent. For an extra treat, stop for a while and watch the birds at the feeders in the garden!

We stopped in for some coffee and pastries. Delicious! Especially the chocolate croissants. We bought some extra croissants to take with us for later. Very European flare feel (not what I expected on my way up to the reserve) and the waiter was very charming.

My family stopped at Stella's bakery on our way back from the Children's Eternal Rainforest. We went in for a quick cup of coffee and snack and ended up staying awhile because of the great bird-watching. Stella's has a couple of feeders with fruit on top and is a bird-watching haven.

We bought lovely and tasty pastries to go although the dining areas both indoor and outdoor were tempting. They offered a nice variety of both savory and sweet treats as well as whole loaves of freshly baked breads. There was also a menu of salads and sandwiches.

This review is based on only one sweet pastry. We ordered a pineapple coconut pie slice, I thought it tasted ok, the size was good but not for the price. We took it to go and the service was quick.
