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

No place to SIT inside (too hot out) since there are so many single people parked at tables for four. Two of us standing. I say put the singles, drinking coffee a long time and on their computers forever, at the long table so the rest of us can just sit and enjoy his wonderful coffees and breakfast/lunch foods. I...

Let me tell you, if you haven't tried foods and beverages made with floral ingredients, it is a must to try! This place has rose lattes! Rose as a flavor is unique with a light velvet toungue feel and a sweet aromatic scent! The rose latte here tastes just like the rose ice cream I make at home, it is... More

This place is upbeat and enjoyable. The drinks are carefully done. The food offering is pretty broad for a coffee house. Their chicken salad with fruit and nuts was delicious. It is busy at lunch time but still has chairs available then. The staff are very friendly and often recognize regulars by name.

This coffee shop is my daughter in-law's favorite place for hanging out, breakfast and great tasting coffee. We had French toast, fruit plate, scrambled eggs with potatoes and scrambled eggs with smoked salmon. Also, my 14 yr old gave it a two thumbs up! The barista has an awesome attitude, greets and talks to everyone, lots of regular patrons.

Great hang out with friends and family. They serve food, but I didn't really have any. I did have a small tea pot of the ginger, lemon grass tea, very good! My husband had a coffe moca and it was quite good. They roast their own coffee, so their coffee is fresh. The place has live music and an all... More
