One of the best things about Gulfport is the variety of food and drinks available in such a short distance. There is seafood, Greek, Mexican, Pizza and Caribbean all within walking distance. My friend wanted breakfast and I wanted lunch, so we decided to go to Stella's.
I am so glad we did!
They were busy and I thought we were going to end up spending the day there awaiting our food, but I was impressed at how quickly we received out orders. I started off with the handmade pierogis. There are four to an order and they are sauteed with onions and butter. ($3.95)
There are a myriad of choices on the menu, but I kept going back to the hot Italian. (Made with Thumanns' cured meats of salami, capicola, pepperoni, ham and provolone cheese, roasted red peppers, lettuce, tomato and pesto aioli on a hoagie roll. $6.95) This comes served with potato salad, coleslaw or Ciega chips or add $1.50 for onion rings. I went with the chips.
My friend had the the "Greek Goddess Omelette," with fresh spinach and feta cheese, served with your choice of side and toast. ($5.95) Side items from which you can pick are red bliss potato home fries, shredded hash browns or creamy grits.
We dined outside, but I went inside to check out the interior and I fell in love with Stella's! If you are a regular, you can keep your mug at "The Mug Spot!" I would be in here every day for coffee if it we closer. I love the idea of having my own mug/coffee cup.
