The eclairs and almond biscottis are amazing. The custard in the eclair is light and airy and compliments the pastry very well. Definitely would come back just for the desserts and forgo the espresso. The espresso was weak and flavorless.


This was my favorite bakery of...

This was my favorite bakery of all times for years. They had THE BEST tiramisu, and everything else was quite equally yummy as well. I would not dare eat anyone else's tiramisu because no other could compare. However, ever since the original owners sold the place to new owners, their pastries and cakes are not as amazing as in the past. I use to go there every week, but unfortunately, I don't find as much incentive to go anymore as the quality and taste have declined. I just can no longer justify the extra calories and fat.

I think we have tried everything that Stella has to offer, but the cannoli and tiramisu are out of this world!
I make it a point to go to San Francisco just to eat and Stella is always a regular stop. Everything is

Sacripantina just melts on your mouth!

I went to this place after a big breakfast so I had the Chocolate cake, napoleon, mixed berry cake and sacripantina to go. Eventually, I ate them after few hours later and everything was so goooooood. Sacripantia was absolutely delicious! It just melts on your mouth with not too sweet but right amount of delicate cream made with egg yolks, sweet butter, rum, marsala and sherry wines. It's amazing! Other cakes were good too but you can ONLY taste Sacripantina HERE! Definitely going back to this place next time I visit SF.

Great name

Stella's Bakery is so good I was named after it. My parents bought their wedding cake there. The cake was so tasty and the name so awesome and I was their first born, so they named me Stella.

What a gem

Even late on a Saturday afternoon with people cramming the cases, the staff was friendly, helpful and a real pleasure. The selections were awesome and they take the time to explain whats what if you need help. Get something to go and eat it late at night in you rhotel room. You'll bee back for more I guarantee it.

Pastries to die for, sacripantina is heaven on a plate

When I moved to SF in the 1980s, I found Stella Pastry and fell in love with the sacripantina. In 1999 I moved to the East Coast, in 2006 I just returned to the city by the bay. The next generation may have taken over, but the quality and recipes are unchanged. Stella Pastry is a jewel in North Beach, not to be missed. The cookies are wonderful, lovely coffee and the sacripantina, well it is what they are known for. It's beyond description, except it is absolutely to die for. I hate giving away secret places in San Francisco, but Stella Pastry is a place too good to keep secret.

marvelous pasticceria and services

The Stella caffe has a wide range of delcious cookies. I love their almond biscotti or cantucci which has a strong smell of Almond. besides that, I recommend you to try their occi di bue ( strawberry cookies), Taralli, Delizzia and their most famous Sacripantina

Sacrapantina and tiramisu

The Sacrapantina was to die for. The best tiramisu I ever had. My husband and I went to Stella's every morning we were in San Francisco. Great variety of cookies. Great coffee too.
