Bella's cafe is outrageous, I have had to wait on the weekends but it is well worth it. I give out gift certificates often to my clients just to let them try it, knowing thay will go back...once is definitely not enough. What I notice also is how the attention to detail it is from service, food, and most of all cleanliness ..from watching all these restaurant shows Bella 's gets an A..big fat one....try it ...no other.

Their brunch menu changes weekly and is always full of amazing surprises. It's a very diverse and creative menu. Tons of unexpected combinations, all that we've tried have not disappointed. I wish I had written this review closer to when I last ate there so I could remember what I had. Sorry for not being very specific! We also tend to order the Italian style french toast for the table to balance the savory with a little sweet. If you like french toast, you must try Bella's.

I thought the place was great, the food (banana pancakes) was good and fulfilling! The passion-mango mimosa definitely made me feel like I was on vacation, loved it! This was my first time going there but I would definitely go back and I would recommend people to go for breakfast (until I try the other meals) since my friend and I enjoyed it.

This is seriously, as good as breakfast gets. The last time I was here, I ordered the Cuban Mojo, a breakfast special that consisted of a pork tenderloin, cooked to perfection, tender and juicy. Served with gravy, two deep fried poached eggs, that were crisp and non-greasy, and garnished with house made plantain strips. Pure bliss for my taste buds.

Loved this place so much I came back the very next day and had: two different kinds of french toast. Both were different kinds of bread. Both were good in their own way. Had fresh fruit with them. They were both fluffy, one was white and the other was wheat. Extremely filling and sweet but not overly sweet.

Ah, here it is. a rare five-star review from me. The best blueberry pancakes I can ever remember. Pancakes are an important part of my life and I have Bella's to thank for enriching my life in this way.

You walk in and right off the bat you are greatly warmly and feel at home. However the seating in Bella's is on the tight side, hopefully one day they can take over the building next to them and expand but I digress... If the table seating is tight, just sit at the counter.
The food is absolutely delicious. I have tried many different items off the menu and they have all been so yummy and the portions are huge. My favorites are definitely the eggs benedict (and some times they have specials with crab,lobster or salmon) and the waffles (they are huge and just topped with the most amazing fruit. Honestly, the service is great and the wait staff is just so nice. Unfortunately, it can be a bit pricey. I can't wait to go back!

French toast. That is all!
Alright I must say a little more. The coffee is delicious and the juices are all fresh and delish. The breakfast and brunch menu have a little something for everyone and it's all super delish.

Their menu is awesome. They have quite a bit of variety, and even for their typical items they are creative. Brie stuffed french toast?! First time I ever heard that one. But it was soooo good! (In fact, writing about it is making me hungry. It was seriously that good. Try it. Unless you don't like cheese.) A bit on the sweet side, which was fine by me. I had read this already on an earlier review, but their egg/omelette items look really tasty and interesting. Their almond latte is delicious. Service was good and the restaurant was pretty quiet/not full. (Around 3pm on a cloudy Saturday.)

This place is really good, but really tiny! We waited for about 45 minutes for a table this morning, which would have been way more annoying if it hadn't been worth the wait. I got the Apple Pecan Baked French Toast, which was really more like baked apple pecan bread pudding. It was delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed both that and the potatoes that came with it. I think the bacon could have been crispier, and I only got it after being given sausage first, when I'd asked for bacon. Am I being picky? Definitely - this place is great, but I think you should be super picky to give a place 5 stars instead of 4! Improve the service a bit, including the wait time, and this place will get a 5th star from me.

Mmmmm - I'm still dreaming about the challah french toast I had with fresh fruits (mango, kiwi, raspberry, and pineapple) and a passion fruit sauce. I practically licked the plate clean. My friend ordered an omellette with asparagus, oven-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, and fontina that was also out of sight. Coffee was great as well. The menu is creative and extensive and I know I'll be back to try some more delicious breakfast food!

Brunched at Bella's over the weekend and shared stuffed french toast and that "Kentucky" dish with savory french toast. Also enjoyed a pumpkin spice latte. There was quite a wait, which wasn't a surprise after what everyone else had written about.
