Went there for dinner. The name is confusing because it’s a bakery until 6 pm and a steak house as well. I had a beef cut and my husband had the salmon. Both choices were excellent, served with a fresh salad. My husband also enjoyed...More

My family and I had breakfast at Stellas, with some high hopes for the pastries, which the guidebooks raved about. We found them somewhat stale and not really anything special. The rest of our breakfast was OK, and the location was very nice.

We had a good lunch here, out the back, sat watching the birds. The food was good, with the soups in particular being good. The bakery at the front did a good range of cakes, including a few wheat and gluten free options. The staff...More

We had various quiches and lasagne. All appeared to be home made and were very tasty. Portions were generous and food was good value. The local craft beer is good, especially the IPA.

I loved Stella's, in part because they were willing to make me lasagna for breakfast (which was wonderful)! My husband had the blackberry pancakes which were also great! The lemonade was very tangy. We enjoyed breakfast watching all of the birds on the porch. Highly...More

This is a highly rated place for coffee, breakfast and pastries. Unfortunately there aren't any true vegan options but they will accommodate. When we got to Stella's we chose to sit outside, where there was a monkey stealing bananas from the bird feeder and being...More
