I come here for their double latte and breakfast at least a couple of times a month. Great neighborhood feel, coffee, food and service. Big fan of their breakfast Sammie, breakfast burrito, and breakfast bowl. Cakes and pastries are wonderful too. Recommended.

While visiting Norfolk, my sons suggested this place. WoW! Each of us had a different type of coffee, yet they were all fabulously made. You can play a board game while sipping your hot coffee, engage in conversation while your dog admires the surroundings, or just sink into your computer for no apparent reason. Super cool place.

My husband and I love breakfast out on a Saturday morning, so we decided to try somewhere new to us. We picked Cafe Stella based on the reviews we saw online and they did not disappoint! They roast their own coffee and it was delicious. No need for a fancy coffee drink although they have plenty to choose from, and... More

Local place with lots of charm, great coffee and great staff. Whatever is in the special daily display tray is always worth getting.

I heard about this place from a friend. So my wife and I stopped in for breakfast. I ordered a cappucino and a "breakfast bowl". The bowl included grilled ham, grilled tomato, asparagus, fingerling potatoes, and topped by a fried egg. The food was delicious and the cappucino was as good as I have had anywhere (and I've been to... More

I came here after seeing an article about their spectacular matcha latte! I don't drink dairy and the barista let me know not only that they have soy and almond, but suggested soy milk in this latte above all milks! Ok, this may seem like a small thing, but as someone who relies on dairy-free milks, these little insights were... More

We were in Norfolk for a few days and went to Cafe Stella every day. It was close to where we were staying and the food is GREAT! Quaint seating but can be hard to find a table during busy times, like Sunday morning when nearly everyone was sitting with their laptops and a cup of coffee. You would think... More

I'm back! I know that my frequency at Stella's has fallen off a bit and the why is reflected in a previous preview. Make no mistake that I'm a fan of their coffee and happy to see improvements on National Coffee Day. The patio was clear of most debris, an issue I've had in the past with cigarette butts and...

The best place to relax, read, work, converse, and just be around friendly people. Excellent coffee roasted on site. Diverse and delicious menu, frequently featuring specials.

And I mean that: vegans, meatheads, hipsters, punks...you name it. Stella has something for everyone. Its hard to say if its really a coffee house based on the quality of the food. Its more like a cafe in Europe than anything else. Great food, drinks and sweets...and the coffee is roasted in house. Enough said about the coffee. At night... More
