Been there twice so far. It's very difficult when dining with a vegetarian, but this place satisfies both. The food is excellent and so is the quaint ambiance. The service can't be beat. I recommend it highly.

We LOVE this place for breakfast. We have been coming here for a few years and have turned on several of our friends and family to Bella Vida and they love it also. Arguably the best breakfast in cape may.

Just when I was wondering why the kitchen was so slow getting our breakfast order out after waiting 20 minutes in a not very busy restaurant I find out our server hadn't even but our order in yet because according to her it would cook quickly.worst service ever and the saddest plate of huervo rancheros I have ever seen

Love, love, love the coconut shrimp platter. The mango salsa is just wonderful on it. The staff is great. This a hidden treasure in West Cape May. We always visit.

My husband and I come here every time we're in town and it's been wonderful each time. For breakfast I usually get the crab cake benedict, which is delicious, but the last time I went I tried the sweet potato pancakes and now I have two favorites! My husband loves the salmon benedict and gets it every time. When we... More

Came upon this wonderful, eclectic menu restaurant on a rainy June Saturday. Freshly made noodle salad and cucumber salad as sides. Sloppy veggie reuben, chicken burrito, crab cakes and chicken wrap all delicious. Friendly wait staff to make the rain drops disappear.

Went there on the recommendation of one of the locals for the crab cakes. We were not disappointed. Very yummy! Quite the varied menu for breakfast or lunch,(North American, Central American, Hawaiian, Italian...) , but we were there specifically for that item. Wound up eating there a second time during our trip and the crab cakes were just as good.... More
