Description: In December of 1999, Stella’s Café & Bakery opened its doors to the Winnipeg market at 166 Osborne Street. The concept utilized the talents and experience of each of the founders, Tore, Lehla, Tomas and Anneen to create a menu and environment focused on in-house baked breads, soups, jam, and sandwiches for dine-in or take-away. Simple, healthy, inspired offerings and friendly service propelled Stella’s to instant popularity. An understated approach and commitment to quality allowed the name of Stella’s to be promoted in the most powerful of manners, by word of mouth. And boy, did everyone like to talk about Stella’s. With the popularity of the first location, expansion became inevitable and, today, Stella’s operates multiple units in Winnipeg, with plans for further development in Winnipeg and beyond. Stella’s has expanded its menu and number of locations, but has never compromised its core values or commitment to quality.

The linguine pasta dish with chicken was the best of its kind we've ever tasted. Comprising pasta, mushrooms, peppers, garlic, and tomato bits it was simply delicious. The caesar side salad was fresh and tasty. the house pinot grigio white wine was excellent and reasonably priced.
Service was five-star by an attentive efficient server.
Stella's is near the university of Winnipeg so that the clientele was young as expected, but the noise level was reasonable although you'd never classify this as a quiet restaurant.
The decor is bare bones with tables lining a long bench along the outside wall of this narrow restaurant with a few tables in the middle. A two star decor with five star food is Stella's.

The best part of my Mexican Breakfast was my server Ariel at the Wolsely location. She was so chatty and kind. The meal was delicious, perfectly cooked, with great coffee to enjoy. It is a busy, bustling restaurant, in a lively neighbourhood! Thanks for promoting "Friendly Manitoba"! It made me feel right at home.

This is a real treat for any of you with a sweat tooth! They have a variety of items on the menu. Most of them are very good but the real treat is the desert menu. My favourite is a German cake. They do not bake it often. It's the best German cake ive ever had in my life! If come early on Saturday morning your chance are pretty good to get it! Shhhh... Keep it a secret.

Had breakfast there. The Cafe Breakfast plate was great! Fresh bread and delicious sausage! Good coffee too!
Outdoor patio which can be hot of the sun is shining since its between two buildings so there's not a lot of wind. Would definitely go back!
