Beloved sandwich shop on Broadway to close

Stella’s Café in Spokane is closing.

The beloved sandwich shop on Broadway Avenue is shutting its doors at the end of the month. Chef-owner Tony Brown made the announcement on Stella’s Facebook page Thursday citing “an expiring 5-year lease” and other factors.

He’s looking at how to combine the Stella’s fare with his restaurant Ruins, at 825 N. Monroe St., about two blocks away.

“We’re still in the process of developing a combined schedule and menu but will post additional details of all that in the coming weeks,” Brown wrote.

“Nothing is changing except location,” he said. “I think the sandwiches will actually be better because we have a full kitchen at Ruins.”

Stella’s, at 917 Broadway Ave., will close at 4 p.m. Jan. 31.
