In late April, Stella’s Cafe at 2756 East Coast Highway closed, doors and windows covered with brown paper and a hand-printed sign announcing a remodel.
In May, the owners said they would reopen soon and that they had some issues with their permits because the previous business did not have a permit to use a full kitchen. The restaurant served sandwiches, pastas, pizzas and other Italian food.
This week, however, the remodeling sign is gone and the building has a “For Lease” sign instead. The owners have not responded to repeated emails over several weeks, seeking a comment about whether the business would ever reopen in Corona del Mar.
