Cafe Stellina is delightful 8/26/2006

We were driving in Capitol Hill the other day and noticed the former Cornish theater props workshop building on 12th Avenue East had been transformed into a snazzy looking cafe. So we went there for brunch this weekend, with our 15-month old. It's the same Cafe Stellina's but they have moved from Union to 12th and Pike. Just opened three days ago. They don't have highchairs or booster seats, but we eat out often enough so keep one of those foldable ones in our car. Note this is not your usual place to take kids, and most parents wouldn't want the hassle of taking kids here, but I like to expose my son to fine dining so that he appreciates food with actual flavor and learns to eat and behave at nice places. It was great. The space is lovely, open and light and modern with clean lines and a touch of the popular pseudo industrial warehouse look and it all works. The food was great. We had bagels with salmon and cream cheese (and amazing slices of heirloom tomato on the side), a breakfast "pizza" and yoghurt with fruit (ripe figs, a rare treat, were included). All were top quality fare, clearly purchased with love, and very reasonable prices. The coffee was great, and the fresh squeezed juice was awesome. The pastries looked delicious, so they are on the list to try next time. more
