Stella can be noisy when it’s busy. Therefore, on a recent visit, we braved the summer heat and headed to the patio. While it wasn’t exactly the wraparound porch of a Texas farmhouse, there was a gentle breeze, and the hum of the fans made it easy to pretend. Hearty biscuits are at the core of many of Stella’s comfort food breakfasts, from its traditional bacon-and-egg plates to its biscuit French toast and pulled pork and pimento cheese sandwich. Wanting something lighter, we opted for scrumptious house-made almond-and-pecan granola with vanilla yogurt and berries. Fresh-squeezed orange juice and mugs of good coffee complete the experience.
