Review: 41092 Stephanie's Pizzeria

Welcome to Stephanie’s Pizzeria! Our favorite baker & organizer Stephanie has a newest endeavor in cooking business: to make her tasty pizza for her friends and all people in Heartlake City to enjoy! She is known to make tasty cupcakes and other yummy baked goods, so everyone is excited to try her piping hot pizza served right out of the oven! You can enjoy your meal inside her cozy pizzeria, or just give her a call and get the food delivered to your door. You may see her riding her new red scooter, delivering pizza all over Heartlake City! 

The FriendsBricks community wishes to thank TLG’s CEE Team for generous support of this set to review and share with fans.

Box Contents: 1 Booklet & 2 Bags

There are 87 pieces (plus a few extras) in this set. Many of them are quite ordinary, but many fans are going to be happy with the red scooter, which has been available only in 10243 Parisian Restaurant until now. 

Let’s meet Stephanie! She is wearing her signature white tank top with pink star details. We saw her in it in several sets from 2012, but she finally got tired of it and refused to be seeing wearing it for the past two years! And now, her old tank top is fashionable again (Emma said so)! She loves the updated look of the tank top design, and it looks great with her pink shorts and her matching sandals. They were borrowed from Emma who wore them in Emma’s Lifeguard Post and First Aid Jungle Bike in 2014.

Here’s Stephanie wearing the helmet. I would have liked the look better with some of her hair showing.

Now with her helmet on, she’s ready to ride her scooter!
41092-8073-AThe rear storage case is built with four wall corner elements and a 1x1 flat tile on top of a 3x3 plate. That’s large enough for the pizza or her neighbor’s dog Coco. Just don’t put them in there together!

Here’s the completed scooter. 

Stephanie’s first attempt at riding the scooter goes smoothly.

“Oh, this is so much fun! I’ve got to get Mia to come over so we can ride around town together!”
Stephanie and Mia looking cute riding their scooters with their matching helmets on. Mia has some gigantic lemons in her basket for her lemonade stand.

Let’s go inside the pizzeria and get the oven ready!
The front side of the oven shows a relatively new 1x4 masonry profile brick, which has appeared only in 41057 Heartlake Horse Show until now.

This is the counter where Stephanie takes the orders and serves her food!
It’s a simple build, and yet very effective as a restaurant storefront design with the arch and the vibrant-colored awning.

Here is the counter shown from the back. It's nice to see the nostalgic telephone receiver still in use. 
In 2012 we saw 3930 Stephanie’s Outdoor Bakery with her cakes and brownies. In 2013 She opened 30113 Stephanie’s Bakery Stand where she offered cookies, pretzels and more. In either of the cases, however, money was not involved. But the reality says she needs to make some profit to keep her food business going. She has casually laid 105 LEGO dollars on the counter. I like the silver coin design, which was first introduced in 41058 Heartlake Shopping Mall. So does Stephanie, and she hopes to earn many more! 

Are you curious what’s the popular meal at Stephanie’s Pizzeria?
A medium special pizza with basil and a bowl of fresh salad, served with a bottle of Heartlake City’s local spring water! That’s a special deal for two, and costs only 105 LEGO dollars!

"Let's eat!"

Extra Pieces

What a fun set packed in a small box! Some may wish it were a full restaurant in its own building, but this can be an outside pizza stand at one of Heartlake City’s many outdoor events, like a dog/horse show (or the 2nd World Petacular) and a Market Day! But you can also build your own building for the pizzeria or a use an existing Friends building; I was thinking that one of the buildings for the two animal clinics in Heartlake City could be used for the pizzeria.

Thanks for reading, and keep building with LEGO Friends!
