One of the more well known restaurants in Spokane has sadly announced they will be closing their doors. Stella's Café has chosen not to renew their lease at their current space ( 917 W. Broadway ) and end the run of Stella's as it's own establishment. But don't worry to heavily as much of what Stella's Café offered will continue on.
This is because Stella's is owned by Steve , Marti and Tony Brown also own and operate Ruins another awesome restaurant a short distance away at 825 N. Monroe St. . Stella's menu and employees will actually transition over to Ruins . This in addition to everything Ruins already offers.
Ruins is actually a pretty unique restaurant that also offers a full liquor license. Ruins menu rotates offerings by region / style ,etc... . The food is fresh and you never know what you'll find. The addition of Stella's who was mainly a sandwich place will help make Ruins a good lunch spot.
Stella's Café final day will be Jan 31st . During it's existence the restaurant built a pretty good following and was even one of the restaurants that got paid a visit by Chef Alton Brown when he brought his tour through Spokane back in 2015. No word on if anyone is signed up to open in the business's space on Broadway but with the close proximity to the Courthouse and Arena we may see something exciting and new open for business there. We'll keep and eye out...
