Two porches with multiple feeders offer a great place to relax and gawk at gorgeous hummingbirds feeding and whizzing by. You sit so close to them that you can hear their wings buzz. And coatimundi (raccoon like creatures) come to visit too. Oh, and there’s...More

We enjoyed our visits here while we stayed at the Monteverde Biological Reserve for seven nights. We only tried the coffee and snacks, corn pudding, bread pudding, etc..., but they were delicious!

We went to see if it is true that there is so many hummingbirds and I can definitely say yes. They pass so close to your head you almost feel the wings. Bonus the coffee was excellente. Was one of the best lattes I had...More

This place is a real gem! The number of hummingbirds is unbelievable, and there are lots of different species. The best thing was nobody seemed to be there! We found the owners to be very hospitable and friendly and the cake is amazing. Definitely recommend...More
