Bella Vida is the Best! Breakfast, lunch or dinner, they have a great menu. Very varied. They are open year round which is not true of most places on the shore. Treat yourself to a delicious meal!

We went for brunch. Had waffles with fruit and vanilla chai latte.. they were so good. Small place but great food. Prices are normal and the staff was friendly and welcoming. They are also dog friendly and vegan. We will defiantly be going back.

I have eaten breakfast here and it was good. However had dinner last evening and it was terrible.. service was non existent. Took an hour and a half for entrees to be served. I ordered the shrimp and grits which were overlooked and cold.

Noticed the Bella Vida Garden Cafe advertised in a Cape May brochure. We tried it for lunch. They were still serving breakfast when we arrived, so my wife tried their Chipped Beef on toast {SOS was great}. I tried the Costa Rican Shrimp and grits, which was out of the world.

We enjoyed the variety in the menu.The decor had a family flair. I was a little disappointed in our table because we had to squeeze into this tiny area close to the counter.

We visited with our Goddaughter and her boyfriend. We wanted a light lunch since we were having dinner in only 3.5 hours. I started with the Juice of the Day which was Carrot, Mango, and Cranberry.
