This is a cute small cafe open to the fresh air, and ringed with lots of little plants in offbeat little cups and ceramic containers, though oddly they seemed to all be succulents and cacti, no orchids. I had coffee prepared in the traditional Costa...Rican manner (chorreador) and a salmon panini with a really good salad on the side. It was out of my way (my hotel is way on the other side of town), otherwise I’d be back. Staff are nice, and there is something wholesome about the ambiance there that made strangers greet each other as if they were friends. Don’t miss the actual Orchid Garden, which is very nearby and even more special (separate admission charge).More

Went here on recommendation from a guide and he was not wrong. The food is delicious, drinks are great, and the cafe has a great atmosphere. Went first for coffee/fresh juice and then the next day for breakfast.

Wow. What a lovely cafe tucked in the lower entrance of the Santa Elena center. Lovely patio and indoor sheeting area. We had a pancake breakfast, coffee and the fruit juice shake. All were very food, the coffee (espresso) was the best we have had...so far. The service was good and the staff very friendly. A great place to reenergize. Enjoy.More

We had the best lunch here - bowls of colourful salad, home made soup with delicious bread, home made cheesecakes... the food is superb, fresh, healthy and wholesome. Cannot recommend more highly whether you are vegan, vegetarian or just enjoy great food.

Lovely small restaurant with delicious food. We had empanadas and some Tipical Costa Rican Gallo Pinto. Delicious drinks are also available, and staff is wonderfully friendly. Pura Vida, Buen Comida!

Cafeteria Orquideas was recommended to us by our hotel owner, and we were so obsessed after our initial visit that it became a regular in our rotation. The food is divine (for vegetarians and meat eaters alike), the drinks are phenomenal (the chai, the smoothies,...the coffee), the servers are extremely kind and have a great energy, and it's just a super pleasurable experience. Don't miss it.More

We found this place quite by chance and I am so happy we did. Great laid back vibe, superb extensive menu with lots of healthy and vegan options and a list of really innovative tasty drinks. I had a salmon and cream cheese panini with...a huge ginger shoot drink and my wife had one the delicious salad bowls – all absolutely delicious! Really friendly English speaking staff too. Highly recommended!More

Favorite lunch in Costa Rica. I got a turkey panini (which was really just a sandwich but good either way) and a mint tea. Also shared a chocolate cheesecake which was so yummy. Great atmosphere, but you might not get a table. We came at...non-peak mealtimes so it worked out.More

This place was referred to us by a lovely young lady in our Arenal zip lining group and boy are we glad she did! This little gem wasn’t visible from the road from our hotel so make sure you map it. The portions were incredible,...presentation was beautiful and the food was hands down amazing! This was definitely the BEST breakfast we had in CR! You have to come visit this place when in Monteverde! It’s in the city center beside the huge Orchid Garden.More

We’ve been visiting a lot of restaurants and this one has been the best so far for breakfast since that’s what we had. Cappuccino was really good, cold latte with caramel flavor was my gf’s dream. Eggs Benedict and Chicken panini were on point. Really...good flavor and the meat on the panini was very tender. Beef empanadas were freshly made and had a good flavor with the sauce on the side, that added the perfect kick to it. 5 stars ⭐️More

We stumbled upon this place and decided to eat there. We loved the healthy food options and the drinks there. We would have come back later for dinner but it rained to hard to leave the hotel.

My review is regarding the service. My family and I tried to eat here for a late breakfast but was not able to be accommodated. The parking lot which isn't much of one was full so I went to the front to ask the two...waiters were we could park. The waiter asked me how many of us and I said 5 and an infant. They quickly looked around including the empty table right at the front and said sorry we have no room for you. We would have waited for more table to open up, sat at different tables or we would have even made room at the table for four that was empty. In fact we sat at an even smaller table for dinner in MA. Just seemed like they didn't want to service us. I was actually kind of shocked, so we left and ate at Choco Cafe instead. Wish we would have gone back to Stella's because their food was fantastic and their service was 10 out of 10.More
