We had a latte, smoothie, cheese cake, carrot cake after having dinner in town. Can't beat the place and it was 2 minutes from out hotel. Ate out side and soaked up the only sun we have seen in 4 days.

Choco Cafe is the first place we stopped at when we arrived in Monteverde. Very attractive business located on incline of hill with lots of parking.

We stopped in for a late afternoon coffee/ice cream/beer break. Had a piece of the peanut butter pie to share on the advice of our lovely and attentive waitress. Yum!!!!! It was fabulous. Our teenagers liked their coffee drinks, and we had a couple of nice craft beers. This place is a gem and the porch is a terrific place... More

This café is good for a coffee or lunch. The sandwiches are really good. And it's easy to park outside.

We had coffee and some lunch at Don Juan to warm up after a rainy morning in Monteverde. Food was decent and coffee was great!
