Decided to try this place based on the reviews and was not disappointed. Ordered scrambled eggs with spinach and cheese, a special item for the day. Quality was excellent and portions large. Prices were good. Wait around 10AM was 10-15 minutes on a Saturday, no problem. Will try lunch or dinner on my next trip back.

Stopped for breakfast on a Saturday. Long line to get in. Food was amazing and extremely plentiful. Left stuffed and not finishing everything. Service was fast and attentive.

Loved this diner. Waitresses were marvelous, tough, surly, funny with huge hearts. Right out of central casting. We ate breakfast there and it was killer. Stop here on your way through town or, as we did, on your way to the airport.

Diner was busy due to Nationals, but waiter John gave us immediate attention. Had great meal (turkey dinner was fantastic) and quick service.

This is the place to go for breakfast! All types of breakfast food. The serving size is large. The Courtyard Marriot referred us there and it was an excellent referral! We will be back the next time in Syracuse. A stones throw away from Destiny USA.

I've learned to take TripAdvisor reviews with a grain of salt, especially when it comes to the top-ranked restaurants. Lots of locals who don't typically review other restaurants post to support their favorites, but they flood the comments section and don't reflect reality. I'm a fan of diners, and often seek them out whenever I travel, so it's not like... More

Over the years I have had many breakfasts at Stellas diner, both for business and for personal meetings. It is a wonderful place and a real melting pot for people of Syracuse. I have never had a bad breakfast and never had a bad server at Stellas. I highly recommend this iconic diner and I have introduced many clients and... More

We visited Stella's for the first time this morning as a result of its rating in Trip Advisor. Although we were fairly late for breakfast, around 11:00 on a Saturday morning, the place was packed and we were lucky to get two seats at the counter without a wait. The Omelet Diablo (Italian sausage, jalapeno peppers and pepperjack cheese) was... More

Second time here. Was a friendly, accommodating diner. There was a bit of a wait, but we had almost 15 people to accommodate. Staff was friendly, food portions HUGE & cooked to order. I even ran into a friend & her mom there! Great time.
