Thank you to Tony Merante and all the Authors' Afternoon guests at Stella's Lunchbox Café

A note to inform you that there will be no Authors' Afternoon in November and December. We are taking a break and will be back on January 27th, 2019. 

I would like to thank my good friend, Tony Merante, the owner of Stellas Café for his continuous support of the arts. Without him, the Authors Afternoon would not happen. Thank you also to all the guest authors and book lovers and writers who have participated in the Authors Afternoon every last Sunday of the month. Looking forward to seeing you in January.

If you are a musician or singer, you'll be happy to hear that Tony is also the owner of Desotos and supports music every week through Sunday Jazz Brunch and Thursday Open Mics, both hosted by Anthony Abbatangeli.

Tony is gifted with boundless energy and is always coming up with new ideas. Not only has he created the most idyllic patio, lush with flowers and cosy outdoor furniture, but he has also hosted art exhibitions at both Desotos and Stella's, and movie screenings at Desotos. Lately, he's creating his own pasta made from organic ingredients. If you're interested in the culinary arts, there are currently classes in sausage making... and who knows what else he'll come up with ... come by to find out.

Stella's has become my favourite café, a little home away from home that offers great coffee, delicious food in a friendly atmosphere. A cool meeting place for creative people. When I can't focus at home, I go there to write. Hope you'll drop by some time. 

Tony Merante, owner of Stella's Lunchbox Café and Desotos
