I absolutely love Chef Stellas! They serve homemade food that is clearly made with a lot of love. The service is always impeccable! This is my go-to spot in Lethbridge and I am never disappointed. I highly recommend this spot if you're looking for real food that is made with love!

The best weekend brunch in the city. All Food is locally sourced and always has the normal selections (Eggs, Pancakes, Bacon) but the hidden gem has to be the sausage and peppers (Soo Delicious)and revolving special items (lasagna, cabbage rolls). Service is top notch and friendly. You can see the true passion with all the staff. Not only is this kid friendly but encouraged. Very family oriented. Keep up the excellence!!

We had the take out Thanksgiving meal. The staff were so friendly, hospitable and kind when I went to pick up the meal. I had ordered an extra item and staff informed that due to unforeseen circumstances it was not available. They kindly added in an alternative at their expense which was not expected at all. Our meal was absolutely delicious and very Flavourful. There was so much food that we had enough to have a full meal again the next day. If you have not had a meal from Stella's you really need to try it out. I would highly recommend it!

We had a very poor breakfast at this disappointing cafe. The "Italian breakfast" was sloshed over with so much overpowering tomato sauce that the egg swam in it and the the hash browns on the bottom were wet and soggy. Unappetizing to look at and unpalatable to eat. Left most of it. Charged $3 or $4 for an extra piece of garlic toast which we ordered to try sopping up some of the egg yolk mixture. The pancake was as thick as an English muffin and so soaked in grease that we soaked an entire thick napkin in sponging it off just one side. It was totally unappetizing. Good we ordered only one pancake. The "side order" bowl of fruit consisted one and a half strawberries and a small handful of red grapes put on the plate beside the greasy pancake. Several of those were too soft to eat. That little bit of stuff, instead of a fruit bowl (which was supposed to also have watermelon) with was a $5 extra charge!! Really. The breakfast buffet advertised on the venues website was discontinued a long time ago, the waiter told us. However, the website, misleading, leaves it on there - as of today. The coffee was "middlegood". The young man who served our table was excellent.

went here on account of the reviews, I wouldn't order the breakfast here. Way overpriced for what you get. Not a fan of the sausage, eggs were average at best and the potato cubes were terrible. The biscuit was very heavy The fact the i had to pay and leave a tip before the meal,,,,,

Chef Stella catered my wedding over the weekend. We could not be any happier with how it turned out!! Our guests raved about the food, all of our guests with dietary restrictions raved about the selections for them. The service was amazing! We had no idea what we were doing, and she had everything prepped and completely ready. I would highly highly highly recommend eating here or using their services for catering. If I could give a 10/10 I would. And not to mention, the breakfast buffet on weekends at the diner are amazing. The options are unlimited and the price is very reasonable. Everything is house made and you can tell. AMAZING.

We discovered this place by accident as our first choice was too crowded. This is a local organization, not a chain. Everything is homemade on the premises from breads, pastries to jams. We enjoyed the traditional breakfast but added feature of fresh fruit, homemade jam and choice of toast or blueberry scone which was to die for. So yummy that we had to buy six more scones to take home with us. Also bought some double chocolate peppermint cookies and bread pudding. They also sell their jams and sauces to take home and some frozen menu items. We will definitely return here on our next trip to Lethbridge.

In response to "Tito R."... your experience is certainly not the norm, based on my own experiences. Stella's is my "Go-To" for breakfast and burgers. I moved to Lethbridge in 2016 and visited Stella's for breakfast within my first month of living here. I enjoy a good diner, and Stella's did not disappoint. I had their Spicy Italian Hash and I've been going back ever since, usually twice a month, once for breakfast and once for lunch (Mushroom Mozza burger). Yes, I'm a creature of habit and don't stray from those two selections : ) Their breakfast buffet is back, and it's the best buffet I've ever had, and the selection of food exceptional - and, I'm not exaggerating - where can you find lasagna, perogies, stew, etc. at a breakfast buffet? I'm not one to write reviews but I felt compelled to after reading Tito R.'s summary, as I would not be a regular if his experience was the norm; the staff are always courteous and I have not had a meal where I wasn't asked how it was. In no way am I affiliated with Stella's Diner, I'm just a regular customer, and after writing this I think I may stray downtown and have brunch there today. Worth the walk in the snow. FreeBe

With less than 24hrs notice, Chef Stella created a wonderful meal for our office of 45. Delicious pulled pork, yummy pasta salad, fresh green salad, and a last minute addition of the most delightful Mushroom soup. She won over our entire office. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Chef Stella's for your next office meeting or event.

This a great place for home cooked food, good variety of menu items to choose from. Love the change up of the decor and restaurant to make you feel comfortable with social distancing. Awesome express items as well as the grab & go section of frozen food to take home. Love how this business continues to change itself to meet the needs of the times & coustomers.

This was a busy restaurant for Wednesday breakfast, but I understand the appeal. I really loved the way this restaurant was decorated, and it had a bustling, happy, downtown vibe. I had the Classic Breaky Bowl, which was tasty and filling. The side scone was a treat - I'm pretty sure it was fried because it had a lovely crisp edge that I haven't had anywhere else. I was a bit sad we were leaving Lethbridge that day as there were some intriguing items on the menu.

Excellent food and service! We ordered four different items including a burger, lasagna, Italian sandwich and fried chicken French toast, and all were great. Then we had wonderful peanut butter cookies and coffees and they too were great. I would highly recommend.

The service was exceptional from the minute we stepped in the door. We did not know when we went but they had a brunch buffet so we didn’t have to wait to get our food. The options included breakfast and lunch options as well as desert. There was something available to meet everyone’s tastes at the table. Flavor and texture of the food was incredible. We don’t live in Lethbridge but every time we are visiting or passing through we will be stopping in.

Visited Chef Stella's Diner for the first time today--and it will certainly not be the last! Wow! My wife had the Mushroom Mozza Burger and I had the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger; both were the best we've had in a long time. Restaurant was nice and clean and the service was excellent! Thanks for a great meal!
