A truly unique dining experience at the Jersey Shore.

We have had the pleasure of dinning at the Bella Vida Cafe, in West Cape May New Jersey. They have the best selection to choose from especially for breakfast. Avoid the generic offerings of the pancake houses and dinners, and enjoy a truly unique breakfast, lunch or diner at Bella Vida Garden... read more

Great Friendly Service from one of Cape May's best (Bianca), and the Noah's Arc Burger was probably the best sandwich I've ever had! No room to eat the fries but they were also quite tasty!

As locals, we like to patronize local businesses during the winter, don't know how this place makes it through the off season, as we had two coffees and two basic breakfast sandwiches....nothing special....$25.00 with tip. Stay away from this one. McDonalds is much better at 1/4 the cost! We only get ripped off once...won't return!

It was a Friday night during the summer and we were hungry looking for food an we had our dogs...After trying several restaurants, we landed here and it was wonderful. I don't remember having such good Italian food at the shore. And the waitress was so courteous to us and our 4-legged friends. We had eaten here for breakfast with... More

It's a big menu with a nice variety. We tried their waffles, and build your own omelet. The quality of the food is good, with nice size portions and "sunny" service.

Have eaten here a few times. The staff is very friendly, the menu is extensive, and we like the casual atmosphere. The food is mostly good, but I recommend sticking with basic dishes. On Saturday, I had the salmon with maple glaze -- large portion, perfectly cooked, and I liked the glaze. But the accompaniments were rather bland: plain white... More

We came to Bella Vida Cafe for dinner in December on a recommendation. We especially liked the vegetarian/vegan options. (There were so many!) The food was really good and we ordered too much. (We couldn't decide on appetizers and chose a few.)The ambience was lovely; casual and comfortable, but somehow still more "special" feeling, which was great because it's our... More

It has taken me a while to write this review. A couple months, actually, because our experience was so unbelievable that I can’t quite seem to figure out how to shorten the story. We are summer locals and have been enjoying Bella Vida since we discovered it five years ago. We have brought many friends, and recommended it to many... More

First time here, went for dinner on Thursday in off-off-season, by myself. I liked the place and will certainly return. Ambiance is rather casual, some booths with rather bright lights (great if you're dining alone and brought something to read), other tables & booths have softer lighting, but it's certainly not a romantic place. First, the good: nice waiter, service... More

You have GOT to order the tuna steak sandwich, which is served with avocado and pesto sauce on herb-flecked focaccia. You could order the chicken wrap, as my husband did — it's decent, not remarkable. There are other menu items that intrigued me, but they will have to wait for a future visit. Service was quick and friendly.
