Happy Thanksgiving!

Here’s a little time saving tip for your Thanksgiving dessert … drop by the shop Saturday to pick up some PUMPKIN or GINGERSNAP gelato. Offer it to your guests in a lovely glass serving dish or martini glass with crushed graham cracker crumbs sprinkled over the top … you could even drizzle a little dark chocolate as well! Simple yet decadent.

We’ll be sending all the Stella Staff home for the hoilday to eat turkey and be merry so we’ll be closed on SUNDAY and Monday for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Have a wonderful long weekend folks!

Tammy and Alessandro

Open Mondays from 3 to 10 pm All Summer Long!

So we finally caved … Mondays were torture … watching people walk up to the door, hopeful & smiling from ear to ear, only to find themselves locked out … in despair, faces crumpled … starved for gelato … in withdrawal from the weekend .. needing just a quick scoop to lift their spirits … SO WE DECIDED TO OPEN MONDAYS … but just for the summer. We won’t have lunch, but we will have crepes and waffles and full coffee bar and heaps and heaps of freshly made, gourmet gelato … soothing Monday Blues and making your lives better, one scoop at a time See you June 2nd!
