*New menu updated: January 11, 2022*

Due to the soaring costs of transportation, staffing, and supplies, we have had to raise our prices in January. As a local business serving the community, we did not want these costs to impact our customers. Unfortunately, with ongoing increases in imported supplies from Japan and local producers, we have had to raise our prices. We thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you soon at STEM. – STEM Management
