First, you must meet the owner Glenda. She came to our table and told us about the coffee beans she uses, all grown in Costa Rica, and the origin of the bakery's name. The carrot cake was so moist with homemade icing with a hint of lemon. The bakery has lots of comfortable seating, beautiful wood floors and a great view of the jungle out back. My Tica friend recommended this place, and now I recommend it to you!

We hiked here from Santa Elena to have lunch, and were disappointed with what we found. The garden is nice enough, but the food is seriously overpriced - $ 10 for a cup of tomato soup with 2 bites of chicken and 1/8 avocado, and $12 for a mediocre sandwich with fish?? There are many better and cheaper options around!

Get a chocolate croissant with a cup of coffee and you'll leave with a big smile. You can get meals as well, but make sure you get a pastry at the end.

We were taken here by our birding guide just before going to Curi Cancha (which doesn't open early enough to see the dawn bird activity, go figure). Behind this place they put a wooden porch and several bird feeders. We saw many different types of birds in a small space of time - most special was a Toucanet. Coffee was excellent.

Very tasty early morning take out. Barrista took the time to warm our cinnamon rolls and they were great. If other items are as good as it was, it's definitely a place to visit if in Monteverde.
