Stella Cafe’s new home

A Facebook post by Ruins on Monday has fans of Stella’s Café overjoyed: “After a few years of looking for a spot to reinvent Stella’s, we’ve found a space. Stella’s sandwich shop will be open within the next month at 19 W. Main (in Saranac Commons). Our delicious sandwich menu will live again in a brightly lit space.

“Our old sandwich menu (complete with several vegan and vegetarian options) will come back. Ruins will offer a revamped lunch menu … more salads, pastas and entree items. So come see us at Ruins and Stella’s. In the meantime, follow Stella’s @_stellascafe for all the latest updates!

“We’re excited to be in the same building as @caffe.affogato @blacklabelbc @moderntipispokane @parrishandgrove. Come eat a sandwich soon, and remember: Support your local business!”
