Food was very good and great coffee too. I had the omelette and my wife had the fruit and granola/ yogurt. Excellent breakfast spot. Parking a bonus!

I loved coming to the Choco cafe on my travels to Monteverde. I found their menu to include enough options for the “western traveller” that felt fair in price and in ingredient quality. I also came here a lot of a vanilla latte. Some places...serve a weak latte or cappuccino, but Choco Cafe delivers. You can even get a grande option (though a tad pricey if you are on a budget) still was worthwhile if necessary. The wifi here was also always consistent and strong for me. I stayed for hours one day to catch up on a series and I got a latte and a veggie sandwhich - which was delicious. Another time I ordered the salmon pasta with mushrooms and I was happy with this as well. Portions could always be bigger but that’s just my eyes talking. Lastly, Staff are mostly fluent in English and Spanish and were always kind.More

We were with a local so we got the tip off. The food was very good, service great and we could eat outside. Prices were reasonable and portions were ample. My friend had the steak and said it was very good and cooked properly. The...rest of us had a chicken dish that was quite amazing. I didn't try it but the house made Covid Killer hot sauce was a hit!More

Great dishes, very well presented and cooked. Staff is 5*, very attention but not to the point of "ok,that's enough". Nice ambiente and Juanita the Cat is so cool.

The entrees were very good, excellent desserts and fantastic coffee. The service was friendly, as was the resident cat. We visited this cafe more than once on our few days in Monteverde. The cafe decor was appealing. We highly recommend

The coffee and breakfast options are all super wholesome 😌 and earthy, vibrant colors, pure ingredients. We weren't overly bothered like at other places, just the perfect amount of questions. Great place to stop to eat here up in the clouds. 5 stars

Amazing! Stopped in here on our way out of Monteverdi. My daughter got a Frappuccino to go. Heaven in a cup with fresh whipped cream. Staff was delightful!

Went for an early dinner. Service was excellent and attentive. Food was good, enjoyed two of the tree dishes. Chicken quesadilla was wonderfully tender, cheesy and delicious. A nice bonus was a salsa picante ‘COVID killer’ that had a habanero base. A little goes a...long way. The hamburger was also good and tasty. The sandwich Pepito, however, had overcooked meat making it tough to chew. Couldn’t eat over half of it. The desserts was also mixed reviews. Enjoyed the tres leches, wonderfully moist. The banana cake and carrot cake a tad dry and dense. Nice flavor, just poor texture. Not cheap, paid US-type prices.More
