A "treasure" in Ocala

Shrimp salad was a special that day with a special citrus dressing. The salad & dressing were awesome. We looked at the unique items and wine that they had to... read more

Rated #1 in Trip Advisor reviews, we are happy we chose to lunch there. The freshly made produce to make salads, flatbeds and specials, e.g., a crepe with duck breast, goat cheese, apple and radishes, were delicious, perhaps the tastiest my wife, son and I have ever enjoyed. There is a well thought our selection of wines, which can be... More

Yuuuuuum! Can that be all I write? Ok, I've been to Stella's about 15 (probably more) and only once did I get something I didn't reeeeeeally like (that was my own fault, because I ordered the wrong thing) . I love Stella's! It's unique! It's full of great service!! Now, it is a bit more expensive, but for a nice... More

We stopped by Stella's for some pastries and wine on our way to Orlando. This place is a gem. They have a limited but a great selection of different wines. Their desserts are simply irresistible. We had creme brulee, Tiramisu, and cheesecake and they were all delicious. I also saw different kinds of cheese to go with the wine. We... More

Stopped in from a road trip and it was exactly what we needed! It's always tough to find healthy food and especially so in Ocala. Had salads, quiche, flatbread and sandwiches and desserts. They also bring large carafes of cold water to the table if you ask for water to drink. There were 5 of us, two adults and three... More

What a fabulous little cafe and store in downtown Ocala. Great wine selection and dinner menu and the lunch menu is great too. All cooked to order with fresh thoughtful ingredients. We are so glad we stumbled upon this place.

My husband and I eat here quite a bit. It's not a lunch place that sells a limited number of items. The food is always fresh; we eat a lot of the Flatbread pizza. Also the desserts are great. Love the cheesecake. Only once have we had a problem because it tasted stale but we took it back the awesome... More

Stopped by here to pick up some bakery items to take home. The place was kind of a combination deli, bakery, and store. The bakery items I took home were very well prepared, attractive and tasty. Circled the block twice, but I did finally find parking fairly close. I'm looking forward to going back and trying some of their deli... More

Been here several times and thoroughly enjoy the Flatbread varieties. They are made fresh to order by Stephanie and they are excellent. My wife raves about the salads and about the interesting variety of wines. We both like the deserts and share one because, like the apple pie/bread thing, they are enough for two. A little off the beaten path... More

Stella makes some great sandwiches and panninis and specializes in tasty sweet treats. Great selection of gourmet items for the kitchen.
