The hotel we stayed at recommended this bakery and it was perfect. We had breakfast there a couple times and went back to grab pastries and coffees many times after. The traditional breakfast is recommended as well as their smoothies. The staff were great and we even got a lesson on how to make the perfect cup of coffee!

But really enjoyed the chocolate croissants and coffee as well!!! Also bought coffee and chocolate bars too!! This stop was included in a bird tour we signed up for. Lots of birders on the patio! Few birds to be seen though. But worth the stop.

French toast and pancakes our kids loved, delicious and innovative meals for adults too. I was finding I could not get enough fresh vegetables in restaurant choices, until I met Stella's. Beautiful salad and fresh veg ingredients grown on the restaurant site. Choose the outdoor tables, and keep your eyes out for Emerald toucanets and blue crowned mot-mots and more.... More

We had stayed at El Bosque and Daniel had recommended we go here for breakfast. I'm so glad he did! We walked in and were immediately greeted group of other tourists that we NEEDED to go outside, there was a bunch of monkeys "stealing" breakfast from the birds. We were then greeted by a hostess who asked us if we... More

We enjoyed this restaurant for lunch, we kept going back. Sit on the porch, enjoy the gardens and wild life that come to their feeders. We enjoyed everything we ate there as well a mid afternoon latte for a pick me up with desert. Friendliest staff you will meet, stop and you will return again.

This place is in a great location. Out of the city area but has a lovely patio in the back. The food and bakery items are very tasty. Don't miss this one.

We were hiking around and found Stella's. We stopped in and enjoyed our cup of coffee as well as some carrot cake out back in their garden area. A few birds back there pleasantly set the atmosphere. The coffee tasted very good (so did the cake) and then we went to buy some beans there as well to take back... More

Stopped by for breakfast on Sunday morning and was not disappointed. I had heard many good things at Stella 's. Nice size meal for the price and the garden out back had several birds stopping by. Nice mix of locals and tourists. Would definitely go back.

Pastries weren't that good. They looked like Crossaints but didn't have any of the texture I expected. The breakfast meals were good, but pricey. The back deck was great for birdwatching and they were opened at 6:30am which helped with our morning tours.
