Creative, fresh food with vegetarian and vegan options. We had breakfast here and loved what we had: crab cakes eggs Benedict, sweet potato pancakes, crab and shrimp omelette. Hope we can come back some time.

We got real Lucky. Lucky Bones had an hour wait and we went down the road to this place we had passed by numerous times. Truth be told we knew the reviews were good and the place did not disappoint. It felt like coming home for dinner. Too many smiles to count and incredible attention. Yes it feels a bit... More

Our family of 5 had a great breakfast with excellent coffee, crab cake benedict, and generous kid's meals. Everyone enjoyed it, and we will definitely return.

BV is just the kind of place to like to find when wondering around a quaint little seashore town. A great stop 'On The Way To Cape May' Bella Vida in W Cape May is quirky, fun & down to earth with good food at a good price. The restaurant is well looked after, always clean, bright and inviting.

When in Cape May NJ It should be a crime to pass over this delicious place. Open year round and Just a little off the beaten path from downtown this place is a welcomed destination away from tourist central. My experience is from lunch & breakfast so I can't speak to the friday dinners but I have had wonderful crab... More

Since this is one of my all time favorite restaurants, I made sure to include it as a lunch stop during a weekend I organized for a club I belonged to. From the time made the first phone call in March, 2014 to make arrangements until after the actual lunch in October, 2014, I was always treated with professionalism. The... More

It has been a long time since my wife and I went to Bella Vida for dinner. Several years ago we went to Bella Vida for dinner and left after waiting too long to be acknowledged by a waitress while a group of them chatted in a corner. But last summer we went there for lunch and were more than... More

I was glad someone mentioned that this restaurant was only open until 3pm because it was on my very short list of places I had researched and wanted to visit, but if I hadn't had that conversation we would have tried to go for dinner and it would have been closed. Instead we stopped for lunch. I had a really... More

My husband and I had lunch here. It seems to be very popular. They have quite a few items that are vegetarian and vegan. We had black bean soup with grilled cheese sandwich. Both were excellent. Service was fast and friendly. I would definitely return.
