Arrived in Cape May very hungry and my host suggested Bella Vida. She is vegan and was satisfied with the Linda Christine sandwich full of veggies and the accompanying side of cucumber salad. She had enough left over to save 1/2 for later. When I am near the ocean I want something that has come from the sea. I ordered... More

Kids waffle with chocolate chips was delicious, real maple syrup, egg sandwich, simple but delicious, and egg white omelet was OK. My fruit cup was really tasty, good fruit and seemed homemade, not gross restaurant flavorless fruit, but really sweet, grapes, watermelon, blueberries and banana. Our waitress was great and the booth had tons of room. We're coming back for... More

This restaurant has lots of gluten free dining options, as well as vegetarian and vegan options. The staff is friendly and helpful. They can make gluten free pancakes and french toast. They have gluten free wraps and bread. They also have vegan cheese. We ate here a few times while on vacation. The food is very good.

Isn't it nice when you remember a place and when you go back a year later, it hasn't changed? We visited Bella Vida Cafe for breakfast this morning and it was, again, terrific. I think more people are discovering it, however, because it was much busier than the last time we went. My husband had granola pancakes with banana chips... More

Went on a Sunday night foolishly without a reservation. We reluctantly agreed to wait the 30 plus minutes for a table and I'm glad we did. There was something on the menu for everyone including 2 in our party who have gluten allergies and the children's portions were large.The food was fresh and delicious and our waitress was the best....

Delicious, fresh food. The coffee was excellent. The service was great as well. We got the breakfast burrito and the special seafood omelet. The omelet had fresh lump crab meat and shrimp. All the veggies were fresh and cooked perfectly. My kids gobbled up their flap jack and bacon. They have a huge menu and you are sure to find... More

I am very happy i did my research before stopping by Cape May and stopped for breakfast here. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. There was an extensive amount of breakfast options available including vegan options. I definitely recommend the Crab Ben-e-diction and Hawaiian coffee.

This is a busy venue so plan to have a little wait during busy times. You will find it worth the waif. Extensive menu with some very tasty options. We have done breakfast and brunch here, make it a point to visit every time we are in Cape May, always a good and satisfying meal.

My husband and I were in Cape May for a couple days and we had about 4 of our meals at the Bella Vida. I am gluten free so it is perfect for me. They have lots of regular, gluten free and vegan options so something for everyone. Friendly staff, great service, awesome food. Can't ask for much more than... More
