Reliable, tasty diner food, open early til late night - Edit

Favourites: vegan Mexican or tofu scramble with toasted house-made bread; grilled vegetable sandwich with salad (vegans, sub hummus for pesto & omit feta), dragon bowl, vegan chocolate cake or cupcakes. They are very generous with their dressing, so I ask for it on the side. Prices are reasonable, baking is done in-house and menu choices for one's omnivorous dining companions run from tourtière or gravlax to traditional diner fare like eggs and toast. I like the Pembina location's rooftop patio and thoughtfully-designed gender-neutral washrooms.

Pros: Consistently good food, Each location reflects its neighbourhood, Fresh, in-house baking (with Stella's jam)

Cons: Very busy at peak hours

Vegan Mexican Breakfast - Edit

A few good options. I don’t enjoy their burgers as they’re too bland when they vegan-ize them. Their pad Thai is very good but I almost always get the V Mexican Breakfast.

Good options - Edit

Stella's has a few really good vegan options. My favourites are the tofu scramble and the pad thai. The best thing they have is the vegan chocolate cake. I have yet to find any other that tastes better!

Awesome brunch! - Edit

They have quite a few items on the menu that are vegan. Our Airbnb was not too far from their location on Sherbrooke St, so we were happy to see that they had brunch even during the week. I had the mexican vegan and it was awesome and kept me full for the rest of the afternoon while at the Human Rights museum.

Pros: Delicious brunch!

amazing vegan options - Edit

Stella's was my favorite place to eat when visiting Winnipeg
While this restaurant is not vegetarian they have many vegan and vegetarian offerings. They are clearly marked on the menu.
I had the Vegan Mexican for $10.45. The portion was large and it was amazing.
It included corn tortillas, refried beans, homemade breakfast patties, spinach and mushrooms. It was served with salsa, guacamole and roasted potatoes.
Another day I had the vegetarian lasagna with an arugula salad. The arugula was perfect, not too bitter. The lasagna was quite cheesy but I loved it. Many of their items are vegan or can be made vegan though not the lasagna.
They have numerous locations. This one is located near the University. It was clean, bright and arty.
Many of the restaurants in Winnipeg had few choices for vegetarians so I was delighted to finally have a good vegan meal.
Stellas also has a location at the Winnipeg airport just before security. It was so nice to have a delicious vegan breakfast before my flight. I also ordered the mushroom ragout for the plane.

Pros: delicious , hip, friendly service

Cons: serves meat
