Elegant-eclectic atmosphere. Excellent coffee that takes a minute. (A good sign). Highly recommend the avocado toast with chili flakes, pistachios and sprouted lentils. The barista seemed to have a stomach ache or hate his job. Quiet clientele having conversations or working on screens. Would return.

Coffee is great. Wide variety of food for breakfast and lunch. Beer menu somewhat small but eclectic. A touch pricey.

Went with the family for light summer's night meal. The corned beef, shakshuka, and grits were all perfectly portioned and very tasty. The variety of hard ciders was a nice surprise.

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.

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....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...More
