Tasty sandwiches and delicious smoothies made for a good refueling option after our morning hikes. Eat at the tables on the back patio and there should be some great bird watching as a bonus. Service is very good and friendly.

We enjoyed the view of watching The Birds wow we sent a cappuccino and ate the best carrot cake and Cornbread we've ever had! They both were so moist and freshly made we wanted more!

While doing some exploring came across this little place on the way to the Monteverde Reserve. Very nice, food is great, bird watching on the patio was a highlight. We will be back on our next visit there!

The most expensive Quiche we have ever eaten!!! Went there as told the bird feeders attracted good birds... this was ok but better places to eat for value.

Our family of 4 (parents and two teens) spent two nights and days at El Bosque Hotel(December 28-30 2016) very close to Stella's. Chris and his mom run a very warm and inviting restaurant. I had 3 smoothies over our 2 days stay and we went may times just for a drink since it was so close and so inviting.... More

We were staying near by at the Hotel El Bosque...Stella's was a short walk from our hotel. We stopped in for lunch one day. The coffee was good, however the sandwiches were HUGE and very fresh. The ciabatta caprese was my favourite. The back porch is a really cute place complete with picnic style tables and some amazing colourful birds.... More

Stopped in Stella's Bakery after a long hike at the nearby Curi Culcha Reserve. We were famished when we got there and found the coffee, soup and wrap to be delicious. The cinnamon buns are great too.

Coffee and batidos were delicious but the bakery is best for the bird feeder out back with all the local exotic birds offering a show.

unfortunatly just western food but that was very tasty and good. so far the best coffee i had in Costa Rica if you have the chance to sit outside than you will see amazing birds. to be truthful - i saw at Stellas more birds than in the cloud forest

Recommended by our hotel staff for a quick breakfast before our 7:30 a.m. hike in the cloud forest (they open at 6:30 a.m.), Stella's ended up being our home away from home in Monteverde. The vegetarian breakfast burrito, the eggs (in any form), the coffee, the pancakes, the chocolate-covered granola bars to-go (every day)... Not only that, but Stella’s back... More
