Lunch with the four regulars of the "Lunch Bunch," we stopped in for a mid day bite. Lots of natural foods on the daily menu, where as two of us chose the flat-bread sausage pizza, and a couple chose sandwiches. Food was delicious - service fast. Loved the old fashioned root beer. I'll be bringing the wife back to try... More

Everytime I come into Ocala I stop by this place. When you walk in to this place you think this is a cute little kitchen gadget place then you see wine. Then you see the meats, the sandwiches, and the desserts! I also get the fire roasted tomatoes,provolone,mozzarella with oil sandwich. Awesome! The dessert's are great. The people are truly... More

I had lunch with a friend a few times at Stella's and I can see why it's so highly rated. The flatbread pizzas are incredible. The daily soups and sandwiches are great as well. I had the mushroom pizza, tomato bisque and grilled cheese sandwich and each was tasty, fresh and fast. I would recommend this place for lunch, but... More

I have heard so much about this place over the years and finally made it. Kicking myself now I never visited sooner! It was an absolutely delightful experience! Great assortment of interesting items to drink and I can recommend HANKS Cream drink! I had the goat cheese sandwich with chickpea salad that was out of this world! I also brought... More

We're camping here in Ocala and went into town to stroll the historical business area and found this little restaurant with an enticing menu. The service was great, the sausage flatbread with side salads were delicious and the bakery items looked so good we took a stroll after our lunch and went back for a cup of delicious coffee with...

I live in Ocala and am downtown often, however we usually do not stop in Stella's. The main reason is that it has a very small storefront and it doesn't catch your eye. A friend visiting from Washington D.C. area was here on New Years eve. We went to Stella's for lunch. We had flat bread pizza, chicken salad sandwich... More

I travel fairly often between Sarasota and Fernandina Beach and was desperate for decent food in Ocala. Through Tripadvisor, I found Stella's and now plan my trips so I can stop at Stella's for lunch. The food is fresh and well-prepared and while waiting, one can peruse the cookbooks, kitchen supplies and gourmet foods. I like that they provide a... More

Decent but not great. Pretty sure I don't agree with the #1 ranking. Not nearly as good as another desert / lunch restaurant in town, but still worth trying. I Like the location and the staff was friendly.

I remember when Downtown Ocala was a ghost town. Not any more. It's been revitalized with many thriving new restaurants and shops and my favorite is Stella's Modern Pantry. If you appreciate great food Stella's is a wonderland! Their custom cakes are amazing. I can't decide if I like the creme brûlée better than the chocolate mouse or vice versa.... More
