The food at Bella's Cafe was great, but our waiter was unwelcoming and positively unfriendly to my UK visitors. He was unwilling to explain dishes they were unfamiliar with and made the whole process uncomfortable. We were further taken aback when waitstaff asked someone waiting...More

I am a Southern transplant in New England and the grits at Bella's are exceptional. All of their other dishes are great too and I really enjoy the season changes and fantastic hot chocolate!
