- Stella\'s chicken salad sandwich
It’s been more than a year now since Tony Brown and his mom Marti opened Stella’s Café just east of the courthouse. While a lot has changed at the sandwich shop during that time, one thing hasn’t; the delicious and versatile flavors packed into everything on the menu.
Head to Stella’s during the weekday lunch rush, and you’ll see eager customers — regulars and newbies — lined up out the front door, waiting to sink their teeth into one of Stella’s gourmet-style yet moderately priced ($8) sandwiches, like the longtime favorite tofu banh mi.
What started out as a tiny, 15-seat café a year ago has since expanded to meet customer demand and the vision of its owners, with the addition of more than twice as much seating, a savory breakfast menu and a full bar that in the next month will start serving creatively concocted cocktails to complement the café’s eclectic sandwiches, rotating soups, salads and scratch-baked goods.
