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* place to eat in Winnipeg”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Superb but reasonably priced food and a lively and fun atmosphere. Although the clientèle is young and can be heard speaking multiple languages, this isn't a counterculture hangout. It's expertly run, with excellent service. After I discovered Stella's, I stopped trying to find any other restaurant and ate every meal there, except for breakfast at my hotel.

“Great Meal, and Very Good Service!”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

We went here for dinner. The restaurant wasn't that crowded, and service was efficient and friendly.

We ordered the chicken club and quinoa mushroom burger. The chicken club is stacked on a homemade multigrain bread filled with sunflower seeds and other healthy grains. It is topped with cranberry sauce, lettuce and mayonnaise. The chicken was fresh and sandwich yummy!

The quinoa burger is served on top of a lightly toasted rosemary focaccia bread spread with spicy dijon and mayonnaise. It is then topped with caramelized onion, tomato, arugula, tomato relish, and pickles. It was very good except it falls apart quite easily. It was accompanied with coleslaw and homemade hash browns sprinkled with bits of rosemary.

I would definitely recommend for you to come and try it. It was delicious!
