This restaraunt has good food and is priced really well. Clean and comfortable. Certainly a place where all the locals go. It is in the historic part of Stockton, Illinois which is really cool. Convenient location just 1 mile off of hwy 20.

What a wonderfully quaint restaurant! The atmosphere is cozy and historic and has a feeling of "home." The service was extremely friendly, very accommodating. The jalapeno popper burger with cream cheese is a must have! The veggie omelet was also delicious, full of flavor and yummy cheesy goodness! This restaurant is definitely worth the short drive off the main highway.

Driving to Galena, we were hungry, randomly found this place. Expected it to be just like any other shop, but we were surprised.

First, the decorations and feel of this restaurant is very nostalgic.
The service was friendly, a bit slow, but ok
Food was delicious.
Very inexpensive, great value.

It was between lunch and dinner and we had a sweet tooth as we drove through the small northern Illinois town of Stockton. We saw a beautiful old building on main street called Stella's Cafe and decided to stop for something sweet. Wow what a treat! After viewing the inside of this great place we ordered homemade cake and Ice cream. It was without doubt the very best cake and ice cream we have ever eaten. Topped it off with a great root beer! My goodness what a stroke of luck to find this great place! If the food is as good as the cake, this place must be a winner!
Next time we are in this area, we will have breakfast or lunch at Stella's, they close at 3:00 pm!
