Great vibe and lovely staff. Centrally located in Monteverde, Orchid Cafe is a gem. I had the ham and cheese crepe (pictured), my husband had the ham and cheese pita. I also got a really refreshing mint-ginger lemonade drink. We came back the next day for dessert crepes, which were equally excellent! Definitely recommend if you like good, fresh food that isn't too heavy.

We stopped here by the recommendations of a blog we had been reading about Costa Rica. Not to be disappointed.

We tried both lunch and breakfast. They open promptly at 0700.

The panini's are fantastic, as are the smoothies. Egg sandwich in the morning was . You'd be hard pressed to find bad coffee in this town, but for the officianados... This place is legit.

Staff speaks English well.

Parking tip...

Just up the hill is parking for the Orchid Tour, park there. Plan on taking that before or after your visit to the cafe. It is well worth the guided tour.

The first thing I want to make clear is that there are 2 branches of this cafe. One in Santa Helena and one in the Sky Adventure complex. It was this latter one we went to and would suggest no one buys there.

Our food was not good but was edible, so we did better than many others. But to add insult to injury when we came to pay, the exchange rate they offered us had no bearing on the market rate.

We had payed in dollars in most places and knew it was costing us slightly more, but this place just seems to make up their own rates. When we made a fuss they raised the rate slightly but we still ended up paying 40% more.

Had some "take-away" sandwiches ... panninis actually. Not impressed by either the bread or the filling (I had a ham and cheese). The service was friendly. Also purchased some chocolate chip cookies which turned into the best part of the meal.
