We finally did it.
Every time I drive down Main Street in Sellersville, I see people going in and out of a relatively new restaurant, Stella's House Blend Café. Mary Beth had off yesterday and we decided to go give it a try.
This is the kind of place that our area needs more of. (Not the most grammatically correct sentence in the world, but you get the point.) Unfortunately, I didn't bring my camera and MB forgot her phone, so I had to steal a picture from their website.
Stella's is the kind of place where you'd just like to hang out. An airy room with not too many tables and high-back chairs. The place has interesting photos and other artwork on the bead board walls, hardwood floors and comfortable areas with couches and tables. You could feel fine coming in for a quick lunch or hanging out with a book and a cup of coffee for a while. The staff was extremely friendly--always ready with a friendly comment, joke or menu suggestion. It really was a pleasant visit.
Oh yeah, the food....
Stella's serves breakfast and lunch every day and dinner on Friday and Saturday (hours listed below). The lunch menu was full of appetizing salads, soups and sandwiches, all made in-house. I wouldn't say that there was much all that out of the ordinary on the menu, but everything is made fresh with really good ingredients--so it doesn't have to be fancy to be delicious.
We both ordered from their lunch specials. Mary Beth ordered the Meatball Parmesan Sandwich. (Our server suggested this, telling us that the meatballs were made that morning as was, we found out later, the bread.) It was very tasty--the meatballs were flavorful and tender and covered in tomato sauce and melted cheese. I'm a sucker for egg salad, so I went with the Egg Salad and Bacon Wrap. You know how you order something with bacon at many places, you get maybe 2 shriveled up slices? Not in this case. It was yummy egg salad with lots of bacon--cooked just right--that added great texture and taste. The whole wrap was stuck in a Panini press to give a little crunch to the outside. Again, nothing fancy, just really well done and made with good ingredients.
The breakfast menu features a number of egg dishes, omelets, pancakes and breakfast sandwiches. Our server also told us that on Saturday mornings, Stella's offers freshly baked sticky buns. Apparently, you need to get there early because people line up out onto the street for them.
For dinner, the menu includes Roasted Garlic or French Onion Soups, appetizers (like Shrimp on a Raft and Swedish Meatballs), salads, pastas and entrees (like Chicken Parmesan, Broiled Scallops and meatloaf). Menus are listed on their website.
Oh, and if you're a coffee lover (I'm not), they have a wide array of locally roasted coffee and espresso (and tea, too). They also have take-out and catering services.
Great atmosphere, tasty food, friendly people all at a good price! What could be better? So give Stella's a try! You'll understand why all those people are going in and out of this gem of a local eatery.
