We weren't too hungry and wanted to get something lite for dinner. We saw Stella's in a strip mall and figured since it was called a cafe that it going to be like a diner. Well it was more of a nice restaurant, with a bar, big indor dining area and a patio. We were able to get out on the patio. While not very scenic since it bordered the parking lot, we figure. we're in Hawaii and outdoor eating is part of aloha spirit. We shared a Capreses salad and a Pineapple pizza, which both were very good. The service was questionable in that our waiter must have had 10+ table, boith on the patio and inside. He had commented the place hadn't been busy the previous night and that's why they did not have on more help. We did enjoy the food and would go back again.

We ate here for breakfast. The food was good but nothing out of the unusual. Nice place for a sitdown meal. Service was average.

A great place for breakfast, I had a crab omelet, which was amazing! The service was friendly, personable and quick. I also love all the cool rock memorabelia on the walls.

We had eaten before at Stella Blues, and we liked it very much. We had suitcases in the car, so we parked in a space that could be monitored from Stella Blues Cafe while we were eating. Parking near Stella Blues is easy because it is in the back of the shopping center. My wife had chicken teriyaki with two scoops of rice, and I had pulled pork on sourdough with a pickle. Both dishes are recommended. The quantity of food is quite overwhelming, and the prices are comparatively low. This probably is one reason the locals like to eat here. We had started eating at 2 and finished at 3 pm. The service was very good, and the prices were even better. This has become a regular lunch stop for us.

We were thrilled to use our coupon for some delicious food & drinks on our first night in Maui. We started off with a round of shots and an appetizer. At this time, we also placed our order which the waiter then put on hold and FORGOT about. We waited over 45 minutes before the waiter explained what happened and actually placed the order. The food was amazing but when it came time to pay, they refused to take our coupon. My bad, the coupon did say that it was only good during specific hours but the attitude that the server gave when he told us it wouldn't be honored was completely unnecessary. He was rude & almost gloated in the knowledge that we'd be paying more. No "sorry" or attempts to work with us on the bill after screwing up our order, just a bad attitude. I don't care how good the food is, if you treat your customers badly; they won't be back. The ONLY reason he got anything for the tip is because we didn't want to take it out on the cook/busser.
