Here is a message to you from Philippe Rousseau, owner of Le Cafe Stella at 3302 McCaw Avenue:

Last call !

After calling the Le Cafe Stella location home for the past 22 years, we will be shutting our doors on Friday September 30th, to make room for great new tenants. We are looking forward to seeing you for last call from 4 – 8 pm.

We have enjoyed serving you and creating long lasting memories; Cafe Stella will be missed by so many.

We thank our staff for their dedication and hard work in making Le Cafe Stella so successful over the years. We will miss all of your familiar faces and remember all the events and gatherings held at Le Cafe Stella.

Brass Bear, a local Funk Zone staple will soon occupy the space; below is a note from the owners.

Thank you all for many wonderful years,

Le Cafe Stella Family

From Brass Bear Brewing Company who will be taking over the space:

Hello Le Cafe Stella Family!

We are so excited to be opening Brass Bear at this wonderful location and venue Philippe and his team have worked so hard establishing over the past 20 years. We have been overjoyed hearing the stories from neighbors and friends of their experiences at this great establishment. It brings joy to our hearts thinking of all the baby showers, rehearsal dinners, birthdays, happy hours and weddings hosted here and the memories this building has created.

Full details of the menu and hours of operation are still to be decided but rest assured you will see some familiar faces when we open back up as Brass Bear. In the meantime, feel free to reach out to us with any questions or comments at info@brassbearbrewing.com.

We look forward to carrying on the tradition at 3302 McCaw Ave and can not wait to see and serve you soon!
