‘Beverly Hills 90210‘ had The Peach Pit, Scooby Doo and his gang had the Shake Shack, and ‘Friends’ had Central Perk.
What do we have here in Syracuse? Stella’s Diner! At this weekend morning haven, you’re welcomed inside by the smell of the delectable breakfast food; from pancakes to omelets, to bacon, and more. It’s everyone’s favorite diner from students to locals, and if you can walk right in and get a table, kudos to you. There is almost always a wait of at least twenty minutes, but that’s a good thing. That’s how you know that what you’re about to eat is delicious. One of the best parts of Stella’s aside from the filling breakfast and Betty Boop memorabilia, is the fact that this is the go-to spot for hung over Fridays through Sunday mornings, which is the main source of cash flow for this noteworthy diner.
You’ll overhear all kinds of conversations surrounding the night prior by students and locals alike (but mostly students). Leaving Stella’s, you’ll have a working knowledge of how many beers some dude consumed, the hot man some girl brought home, and/or the embarrassing dancing on the bar scene you may have been a part of last night.
As you eat some delicious pancakes, a mouthwatering fretta (which always provides leftovers!), or the famous breakfast sandwich “The Stella,” you and your friends can piece together the sh*t show which we all have at some point in our lives. I personally recommend the fluffy french toast, as Cambell’s says: mmm mmm good!
