So fresh and so tasty. Prepared right in front of you by the owner who takes pride in his homemade desserts and pastries.

The candy store a few doors done recommended this as we were looking for a good cannoli while visiting the North Beach area... They suggested Stella's! It was so good, not over priced and we enjoyed them in their couple table outdoor area. Definitely worth the stop!

Simplicity at its best. A couple of tables, a good coffee machine and choose your sweet. Just go and enjoy and don't worry about the calories, or if you are worried, have one cookie, I dare you, just one. Great spot, great atmosphere for quick in and out and a San Francisco landmark, at least in my mind.

Whenever we visit San Francisco, my wife and I head to Victoria's pastry shop at he corner of Stockton and Vallejo in North Beach. Alas, we found last week that it had morphed into a Chinese grocery store. Dismayed, we soon found Stella just a couple of blocks away.

We discovered this little gem of a bakery around the corner from Tony's Pizza. We selected a Tiramisu and their signature pastry Sacripantina to have for dessert later in the evening. Both were delicious and we will certainly return if in the area again.
