Bravo! Great soup, great Reuben, and great customer service!

Went here for a lunch meeting, and had a great experience. What might have been a disaster, was turned into a great save! Two of our orders (computer glitch) somehow didn't make it to the kitchen, and after waiting for 35 minutes, I went to inquire about our food. They found out what happened... read more

I stopped in here several times for a quick takeout soup and sandwich. There is a good selection but three times out of four visits my choices were limited because they were sold out (late afternoon). My turkey sandwiches were delicious, full and flavorful. My soups were good but some a bit spicy. A definite recommendation and I will be... More

Amazing atmosphere! The work the new owner has put in, is beyond words! I had a BLT on gluten free bread and a salad and all the veggies were fresh and the portion size was perfect!

I stopped going there when they started charging to use plastic. First and only time I have seen that practice and I consider it a scam. The other issue is having to sort through the salads to see where they use rotten greens. No excuse!

Bell the Cat has no fee for credit card use. Our credit card machine was down for 4 months because the new terminal that was sent us to read the new chip credit cards would not connect to our internet. We have since resolved this issue. The fee was for a cashless ATM that was in use to offer customers... More

Love the food, the curry chicken salad (both salad and sandwich), Hawaiian sandwich, most of the cookies and desserts, but it is rather expensive. $4.99 for a small slice of tiramisu is too much! $8.95 for a sandwich is way too high. I stopped going routinely and now just go once a month ... maybe .... for a treat!

They have a great location now and its a must stop need to find my way back soon. Yummy sandwich, an iced chai and enough goodies to last me a couple of... More

Very nice garden salad - I eat salads out all the time and really appreciate one with a variety of vegetables and a nice size. A tiny bowl of lettuce is what I find quite often. But here there were peppers, red onion, sprouts, mushrooms, carrots, broccoli and the large size really was! Yeah! I added the grilled chicken and... More

We like afternoon coffee here. Choose from Bell's selection of cookies, decaf and espresso. The setting is just relaxed and informal. Lots of other locals eating here and some travelers too. The gals behind the counter are always friendly Pastries do not stand get our attention particularly, so we choose cookies. You just feel like you have stepped out of... More
