The owners are very friendly and treat you like family. I tend to order the chicken salad sandwich nearly every visit since I enjoy the taste. It has lots of dill which adds to the flavor. Service is excellent and atmosphere is enjoyable.

Only the third time that I have eaten here but I must say that it was truly wonderful. Food great, service is great along with a very pleasant atmosphere. Yes parking on the street is a problem but you can park in the parking garage and walk to Stefanos very easily and enjoy the mall that Bill Cook has built... More

I went in to Stefano's for a late lunch. I ordered the triple decker, and I was asked if I wanted the wheat bread or the best white bread that was homemade right there in the cafe. Of course I had to choose the best bread. I also got the chicken noodle soup, which was one of the soups of... More

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
