Excellent crêpes and ice cream

After we found this place, I don't think it is worth to buy any other ice cream or crêpe. Staff is polite and patient. Place is clean and confortable.

I enjoyed my double scoop ice cream; it was really especially nice on a hot day. However, when I paid for it I remember thinking "ouch, this ice cream better be good for $7.50". I'm pretty sure that I do not understand the business of owning an ice cream shop/restaurant ...but it seems unnecessarily expensive.. Eeeek! Hate to give a... More

This is close to the best gelato I have had. The atmosphere is nice too. It is popular year round, and with good reason.

Tried Stella Luna's Gelato when we happened to walk past their little cart at Buskerfest and it was excellent, probably one of the best Gelato I have had. I had their hazelnut and the other person I was with had the strawberry & Elderflower and they were both fantastic. Definitely worth going here :)

We had this Gelato twice during our stay in Ottawa. Once time we got some in a cup and ate it there. The other time we bought a quart of gelato for take out. This is the best gelato I have ever had. This is after trying gelato at La Paloma in Toronto as well as in Rome and in... More

Went last night with my girlfriends and was blown off my feet again. I really appreciated that the server was patient with me and allowed me to have as many samples as I wanted until I picked the three perfect flavours to fill my cup. Might go back again tonight to see if there are any new flavours out.

We ordered a cake and it was supposed to be gluten-free but it wasn't. When the owner learned about this, she made it right and gave us another cake. That is really excellent business practice. The cake was wonderful. Nice to have such great service. The gelato is excellent

Well worth the queue out the door! The service moved quickly, the atmosphere was lively, and the gelato itself was absolutely delicious! Fresh, rich, flavourful - we will definitely be going back.

I've been going to Stella Luna since they opened, and I have never been disappointed. In fact, I've been there 3 times in the last 7 days and tried something new every time. The place can be super busy on a warm summer night, but don't let the length of the line deter you. The staff are very efficient, and... More

The Gelato will be some of the best you will ever have. Parking is available on side streets and if your really lucky you will find a spot on Bank. Inside seating available.
