My friend and I had breakfast-there was no line of people waiting, still a few booths open, and plenty of counter stools open- We were there talking and eating about 1 1/2 hrs- catching up on things- A woman that works there came over and said "the manager wants to know when you'll be leaving". Of course, if there had... More

If you are looking for a diner style breakfast place with the feel of a local hangout, this is it. Stella's has long been a staple in East Milton Square and the food is good homestyle cooking.

I just love this place for breakfast. It has good coffee for a breakfast place, and the service is fast. The place is really clean, unlike a lot of other breakfast places, including others locally. The waitresses are quirky but friendly, the service is fast most of the time. That said, this place fills up on weekends, kind of a... More

Old style diner with good coffee, great breakfast and a great counter to sit and enjoy your meal. These types of places are a dying breed. Go and see how your parents and grand parents used to eat way back when,

For years I avoided this place because it looked so plain. Finally, my cousin convinced me that it was worth giving it a try. They have great cinnamon French toast. Meals are very reasonable. Service is good. You can eat slowly and linger over a long cup of coffee or be served quickly and be on your way. The wait... More

We've been having breakfast and lunch at Stella's for years and it never disappoints. If you're looking for simple home cooked standards like corned beef hash with dropped eggs, or a great turkey club, this is your place. Prices are reasonable, and the staff is friendly and accommodating. I was there last week for breakfast and had a tasty spinach... More

This place has very basic fresh food. Always consistent and no hidden surprises. Your cup of coffee will never run dry. The staff are very friendly and the survive is very quick. A no nonsense place to eat get in and get out ....quick.

This conveniently located basic place with on street parking may be fine for breakfast, and many prior reviews mention that. I have only been here for lunch, once. The menu is unassuming and even unimaginative, so I tried the BLT. It was disappointing. The lettuce was tasteless iceberg, and the bacon the same. In fact, the only thing I could... More

I've eaten breakfast here a number of times. It's like a blast from the past. The food is basic, the service is no nonsense. The prices are quite affordable. The only problem is that you feel as if you're on top of everyone else. They have one size fits all booths that wrap around the serving area. Don't go there... More
