“Best tiramisu I've tasted outside of Italy”
Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

I only ate dessert there, but it was SO good thir tiramisu was to kill for. Just perfect balance of everything. I would recommend getting out of your way to taste it. And it is priced reasonably, so that made me happier!

“Average pastry shop, items were soggy”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

I was unimpressed overall - the cannoli and eclairs were filled long before we got here, so they were, naturally, soggy. Soggy pastry is not a good thing! The cookies, however, were on the tasty side. I wouldn't come back here though - too many other tasty pastry shops within a few blocks, and the service here was not particularly friendly.

“A nice treat in the morning..”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Stella has been around a long time and they still do a good job with their pastries and coffee.
Anytime your in North Beach in the morning, you owe it to yourself to go to Stellas.

“Just a sweet treat”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Had a eclair and hot chocolate. I liked it in the old days when the chocolate was unsweetened and you got to add what you wanted.
