Quaint Cafe

This is a little cafe inside the Fountain Square Mall on the lower level, with sandwiches, chips and desserts. A very unique setting. Staff made you feel at home. I would go back.

limited menu, good desserts. People are very nice and the food is OK. Not much seating area. Wish they had a better menu.

I love Stephano's. The owners are very nice and the food is great. They have the best salmon sandwich in town! The only draw back is that you have to wait in line and order at the counter and the space is very small, but they have nice seating just outside their tiny storefront (indoors) and they carry your food...

When I told a few people that I was visiting Bloomington 20 years after graduating, several said that I had to eat at Stefano's -- and specifically said to get one of their great sandwiches. It's downstairs at the Fountain Square Mall -- and is just a small counter to order breakfast, lunch and desserts. We had a panini sandwich... More

Best food by a long shot and a healthier option. Great atmosphere and location. Brilliant service. Definitely worth the money.

While we were at Fountain Square Mall visiting Santa, we were given a coupon for a cookie from Stefano's. It's so nice that they give back:)

I used to come to Fountain Square Mall several times a week, two years straight. I would stop in at Stephanos about every other week for something, a drink, snack, lunch. The place i was taking classes moved, and it had been a couple years since the last time, but we stopped in for lunch. They put a hand-written sign... More
