Their food is always first rate . I consider this a 'nicer' restaurant. their prices are good for the quality of the restaurant and food.
Good coffee, good food
Great Service and Great Food
Absolutely fantastic food, and treats. Get the cubano. Its divine. The French dip is also to die for. Then stay for some pie or lemon/berry bars.
Strawberry smoothy with whipped cream everytime.

Wonderful brunch! Great food and friendly service.
Took my Granddaughters and son there. Great food and they served my My granddaughters breakfast because they wanted French toast even though it was lunchtime.
Wonderful staff and gorgeous interior! The food was served very quickly and was delicious. I will definitely be coming back!!!
I have been coming to this place for well over 10 years, and it stays consistently good. Today we ordered the Bella Bru burger with cheese and fries. This is one of the better burgers I've had in a while. Super juicy so you need lots of napkins. Delicious grilled flavor. Ordered it medium rare, and it was cooked to perfection. The buns are soft and delicious and the fries were nice and crispy. They serve the fries with a special fries sauce, I prefer ketchup but the sauce was good as well. You order and pay at the counter but they bring the food to you. Yummy lemonade and iced teas both with free refills! Friendly service. More...
Tempted by the beautiful deserts when we first came in but the fresh peach salad special hit the spot. Fortunately my companion saved me a bite of his pie!
Great for dinner too!
Love the food, the place, and the service
Amazing food: Sicilian pizza, quiche Lorraine and French dip. Excellent friendly staff Very strong gin & tonic.
I have eaten here three times and have really enjoyed the experience. The food is very fresh and unfailing. All of the dishes that I have tried have been wonderful. The bread that comes to the table is freshly made at their bakery and fabulous. More...
Good food but a bit pricey for what you get
Some of the best food and drinks I've had in a long time. All the food is real and fresh. The drinks were fruity and delicious. The service was amazing. I have no complaints, whatsoever. 100% would recommend and would go there again!! More...
Delicious bkfst place.
I love coming here! The food is great and the staff is really nice
Took the fiance and kids there, everything was excellent, great food great drinks, super fast , polite and courteous
Yummy place to eat.the food is consistently good. The service varies.
I love this place. The service was great. Very friendly staff. We had a company event and dined there two nights in a row...and two nights in a row, I had the same meal because it was that good. One member of our party’s food came out late and they handled it appropriately. The patio is wonderful. Oh! Dessert. Wow. Delicious - one of their specialties. Highly recommend this gem! More...
Loved the pastries and great service!
Nice place para breakfast
Great food especially the chicken pizza. But pricey
Friendly staff and great food at great prices!
Was visiting a company nearby, but decided to split a pizza. First time here, confused about where to pick up food or if we had table service. I don't usually tip for counter service so I left tip zero, but it turned into table service with a smile ☺ so we left cash. Nice patio, clean store, and the veggie pizza was awesome and my fam even said so. Thanks! More...
They have amazing banana cream pie. I had French toast.
Good food and atmosphere
Good food and great customer service
I go to Sac for work all the time, and I loved spending the evening at this café. GREAT food, nice patio, and strong WiFi! Made a working dinner feel cozy and delicious. More...
Had lunch with co workers today and had a wonderful experience. The staff is very attentive. My water glass was never empty for more than a few minutes without any prompting our food was delicious and it was such a lovely day we sat outside.
Awesome food very friendly staff
Nice location, friendly service. The fruit and granola dish is a wonderful dish when you want something light yet satisfying
The food is excellent. A little on the pricey side but, worth the money.
BEST brunch buffet! The food here is always SO good.
Great food and friendly service.
Absolutely STELLAR food, that Salmon BLT is no joke! Salads are fresh and flavorful, I'm highly satisfied. Lovely little place for sure
Great food and service. Reasonably priced if you dont get a carafe of Mimosas!
joseph monte de rey
Great service.great food
Our go to place for breakfast. We always get the $5.50 sunrise special Eggs. Potato. And toast. Easy place for a great meal!
Nice atmosphere. They had two vegan burgers on the menu
I've never had a bad meal here! We come a lot- breakfast, lunch, and dinner- and are always impressed. My go-to is the bacon avocado omelette and the Cobb salad. Both very delicious!
Excellent!!! The staff was so friendly and the manager, Theresa, had great costumer service skills. Also, the food was really good. I had the spinach mushroom omelette with pesto hollandaise which was delicious. I will definitely be coming back! More...

Love the food and the staff!
Excellent food. Had a Cobb salad. Yum.
This is me and my wife's to go place without the kiddies...nice setting....great staff and the food is great.
The food is different for me, but I'm picky
The best place to go where price and quality meet.
Great local restaurant..cakes to die for
Love this place all of them are great actually.
Love the burgers!!! So yummy! Great vibes and great service!!
Francesca Sahragard Monfared
Mother's Day Brunch was delicious. Our server was great!
Nice scene for cafe food. I'll return family next time. The place has a good atmosphere. Feels similar to a cafe in Chicago I liked.
Splendid eatery. Tasty food, creative ideas for preparation. Really like it.
I love Bella Bru! I've been coming here since high school, and they've never disappointed.
I don't know how they can serve such a good breakfast at such a reasonable price. The location is immaculate and the bread is to die for. We go here every other week.
A delicious and family-friendly restaurant at a convenient location in Carmichael. The counter-service works pretty well when there isn't too big of a crowd. I enjoy the fact that the food is delicious for adults but there are also tons of kid-friendly options. It is the kind of place where you don't feel bad if your children makes a mess or yells a little bit. More...
This place is awesome.
it's was ok. good service though
Amazing food. Fresh and great flavors. Service was great.
Great Food, Atmosphere, Staff

Always Consistent, Love It...

Good food and pleasant setting.

Had a good quiche here with coffee. Coffee was so so but ceche made up for it.
Great restaurant and bakery
Great food, great service
Great quick stop on the way to Tahoe or slow stop on the way home.
Our favorite local place for lunch, breakfast too, though not as often .
Good lunch menu selection... nice ambience... happy for those who got warm, great, awesome and friendly service... food took sooo long to be served, my bolognese was close to getting cold when it finally came... but everything else was delicious (salad, tuna melt sandwich, cheese pizza, and Bella Bru burger)... will give it another try. More...
Bad- had to go to the cash register to pay the bill. BEBACK- 4 out of 4 starsI've been here a few times and Saturday mornings seem to be always busy. That's why I was impressed that my eggs Benedict arrived faster than I expected. So that was good. I am an eggs Benedict fan so I like to try it when it's available. This one was good because the egg white was cooked well with the egg yellow still runny. When I asked for the lemon wedges, the server was timely, too. My only other critique is that I prefer the bread to be English muffins. But the best thing about the visit was the buckwheat pancake. It was firm(has to be for me...not the bready pancake) and had that expected wheat flavor! I will be back just for the pancakes, if nothing else. All in all, an excellent breakfast today. More...
So delicious! I've never had a bad meal here!! Staff is friendly and helpful.
The service here was pleasant and the food was outstanding. We ordered pizza and tuna salad and were very happy with our choices. Highly recommend!
Bella Bru is consistently good. We had the special (sea bass) and the skirt steak salad. Both were really good. Their breakfasts are also really good. Great desserfs too.
Great place for a cup of coffee and breakfast or lunch. Excellent pastries and really flavorful plain old brewed coffee. Upper class feel interior. Recently remodeled with super comfortable bench seating plus a nice outdoor patio. More...
Excellent brunch. Good selection of hot teas which is important to me haha
Go to neighborhood bar always good food consistent fairly priced
Laura Markle West
Super-duper good salads
Great healthy food at a very reasonable price
Lisa A. Baker
Sweet breakfast spot. Good for those am meetings
Excellent steak salad
One of the better choices in Natomas.
Had a drink and food with the bartender Sarah. Cant say high enough marks. Ill be back for sure.
Never disappointed in quality of service and food
With a good variety of menu selections, a well decorated dining area, and a welcoming atmosphere, this is an excellent choice for a leasurly lunch or just a coffee break. Enjoy!
Awsome food and drinks!
always fresh coffee and the staff is super friendly.
Great place, nice atmosphere, friendly employees!
Love this place, food quality is excellent and always fresh. Nice variety on the menu, good service and relaxed clean atmosphere. I love the outside area in the warmer months. More...
My preferred spot for tasty Cafe food. Everyone at our table was quite pleased. I'll return family next time. Bring your hunger - portions are filling. I can see why they have so many good reviews. More...
We're a party of 13 and our host Jasmine managed all our orders well! We were seated outside, having a great time with friends, and the ambiance was just perfect. I devoured my grilled salmon. All of their cakes were delicious, but I'm sticking to my favorite Red Velvet. Love love this place and the people. Always a pleasant experience coming here. Highly recommended. More...
The service is incredible and the food is equally as good! It is very nice inside and has a very nice atmosphere. It is decently pricey but well worth it.
They have some of the best breakfast options. Potatoes, eggs and toast, amazinggggg. Bar has some good options for an evening of drink with some friends. Cozy environment. Outside patio to hang out, especially during the cooler or summer days. Decent pricing. Decent service most of the time. Sometimes, some of the kids can lack customer service. But overall a decent place to eat. More...
What can I say !! Superb food, excellent, cheerful, friendly service. The "LUNA LOUNGE", attached to the "Deli side, of Bella Bru" is the place to be for early Happy Hour ( 2pm) or, if for taking a late lunch, or early casual meeting with friends. The Chef's "small plates" appetizer menu is UNBELIEVABLY IMAGINATIVE !! You'll want to work your way thru the ever changing menu, if you're a "foodie" !! They will accommodate the fussiest of drink orders, cheerfully. Outside patio service available, weather permitting. It's our groups favorite, of all the upscale Arden area bar/eateries. Drop in soon, you're sure to make some new friends, and I'm sure you'll be back soon !!! More...
I like going early for the Sunrise Special with cranberry bread (yum!). Easy access for mom's wheelchair and parking lot has several close by handicap spaces. One of the hostesses remembers us and gives us our favorite table. More...
The ambiance is nice. I've only been here for brunch. I like that they serve coffee in big mugs. The salmon omelet was very good.
Had a tri-tip wrap that had enough food for 2 moderately hungry people. The tri-tip was cooked better than I had expected. Our server was very friendly making this an easy choice for a return visit. More...
Spent my breakfast here and it was one of my best mornings so far. Highly-recommended.
Love it. Good food and the Best wait staff ever . Very knowledgable regarding menu and super helpful. Will definitely return again and again.

Service is always slow but food is good. Don't go if you're in a rush.
Delicious food and amazing customer service! Highly recommended!
me gusta su comida y la atencion asia el cliente
A nice place for Sunday brunch.
Best Place for meetings over brunch
Excellent clam chowder.
Only had coffee, an iced mocha, but it was good.
I've always enjoyed this café. Great place to relax with friends- great food and really exceptional coffee!
Lovely food, great service and comfortable environment.
Love all the menu options, and of course their baked goodies are spectacular!
Stopped on the way back from Tahoe. They were very courteous.
The food and coffee is the best! Love their breakfast food and sandwiches!
Great breakfast food with a nice atmosphere. Love warmer days when you can share a meal or coffee outside by the fountain.
Love their breakfast bagel sandwich! So good. And don't a fresh pastry treat while you're there. So friggin tasty!
My husband and I came here for brunch. It was a very simple day but our waitress was super uplifting, happy, and constantly checking in on us. The lox love was my favorite dish! The service was just great! More...
Very nice place, much more than a coffee shop. A bit loud but we had a large group. They were able to accommodate us.
Delicious GF chocolate tort. Mmmmmm
Son n law works there
Upper scale cafe. Nice neighborhood. Good coffee with free refills.
Excellent atmosphere with traditional but extra roomy cafe in front and cozy lounge in back. Staff is extremely friendly.
Great food,delicious desserts
Very good food, quick friendly service. We went for breakfast and all 6 "of us loved our food.
There brunch is awesome
Deborah A Davis
AlWays good food and service
They have a great selection of beers on tap and great happy hour yummys. Apline - Nelson IPA on tap and Good Island Bourbon barrel aged on tap
Great food and great service!!!
Great local restaurant with good menu and wonderful food served by friendly staff.
Tried the salmon BLT from their brunch menu and I couldn't be more happy. It was amazing and not too heavy. Coffee and pastries are good. Definitely recommend!
Great food consistently but a loud environment at lunchtime unless its summer and you sit outside. But the reason its loud is because the food is very good so its packed with people....
Mostly good; but menu changes are not always the best
Been there twice now and both time service was great and the food was hot and delicious.
I've had a few great breakfasts and lunches here...it's exceptional every time I go. The food is prepared with freshness and health in mind, and is always has a slight unexpected twist (in a good way). I recommend the Cobb salad and, of course, their burger, as lunch suggestions. The room is cozy and comfy, so it's not just about the wonderful food. More...
They didn't really greet or acknowledge us when we arrived, so that was odd/off-putting, but after that, the service was very good and our order was correct and quite good. The music was fun, and the restaurant was clean and warm. More...
The Villas Blue Cafe in Carmichael California I found quaint and friendly I've been there a few times in the consistency was spot-on and they have quite an interesting drink menu. The atmosphere seems very uplifting. No I've only been there for breakfast and lunch they also have a great dinner menu I will be trying in the future More...
Cute little cafe with a good selection of tasty food with friendly and fast service.
Great food, clean and updated cafe. Order at the counter and they bring it to your table.
Always a hit for coffee, breakfast, lunch, sweets, dinner. Great bake goods. Very nice, clean. Lovely. Outside dinning too. Highly recommend.
Pricey but delicious. Got the salmon sandwich thing.
Our go to for a quick bite, brunch, or dinner in Carmichael, CA. Best muffins and pet friendly. Recent renovations to the outdoor patio make it much more tolerable for outside seating in the Sacramento sun and heat. Kristin is a charmer.
Great food, good wine selections, good cocktail selections and good service. Went on a Saturday night, had tapas, cocktails, and wine. Loved it.
Prompt service, appropriate price, good ambiance, patrons communicating verbally instead of the usual phone texting and gadget absorbed folks one sees in restaurants
Jasmine, was our waiter, very nice and genuine smile. Great experience, great food, great team work and all were very friendly, 2nd time here, we will come back.
Very good spot for breakfast meetings.
I have eaten here numerous times and the food is consistenty good and the deserts are fantastic. Go here.
quiche was sooo good! husband loved the oatmeal and the cranberry walnut toast that came with his sunrise meal. poached eggs were cooked perfectly but a tad vinegary, I wont order those again. overall, we are coming back! chicken apple sausages were also great, but we ate them before I could take photos ^_^ More...
Loved it. Birthday evening. Tapas. Cocktails & wine. Holiday Mule was great. Frank Family Chardonnay, nothing else needed on that one. Did I mention the tapas were amazing? More...
Once again another wonderful Breakfast, this time on Christmas Eve morning. It's our hood , so it's a great place to grab a booth, sip some java, and eat some good grub and enjoy the clatter is voices everywhere. Great way for the two of us to have some together time before the festivities of the season. Cheers! More...
Good food nice atmosphere
Great find for an out of towner. Patio, separate bar area and busy deli type place. Unique flair and worth checking out
Thomas F. Gallagher
Great pizza and friendly helpful staff!
Very friendly staff, great breakfast. I really enjoyed the French toast and coffee.
Really good food with a friendly, helpful staff and delicious coffee. I wish it weren't always so loud, but it's not so bad that I would stop going.
Good latte great place to meet friends to chat
Clash of Odin clash of kings
Was good tasting food, and service was good too, but I did not like how they clean dishes right next to the bar as I was eating !!!
Had the morning breakfast.
Great. Food and desert
Went for breakfast with a friend. Server was very nice. She was very quick with everything. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star was the speed. My egg scramble was cool. It tasted good but it would have been nice if it was warmer. Busy weekend with Thanksgiving, I suppose. More...
Great selection, great service, great food and an awesome wine by the glass selection!
I love the vibe of Bella Bru. They had music on the outside patio that was so fun! Great food and service!
Great food but they keep the music a little too loud and it feels like you have to talk over it.
Amazing food, great atmosphere, wonderful customer service. Food is a little pricey
Great food. Friendly servers.
I went here for a quick breakfast with a friend. There was no wait even on a Saturday morning. The 2 staff members I interacted with were very friendly and professional. The prices are great too! I ordered a brunch item and it was delicious! I have plans to visit this place again! More...
Great customer service. Nice sound level. Pleasant environment. Tasty food.
Great service and delicious food.
I thought it was just a coffee shop at first glance! I found it was considerably more, coffee of course, cakes, pies, other desserts, and a big surprise a full service restaurant! Popular for brunch on the weekends which I have enjoyed just once so far! I have had dinner several times and found good food and service each time! More...
This place is great. I worked there as one of my first jobs back in 2000 or so and been a customer ever since. I've had almost everything on the menu. My favorite is the Cobb salad. The dill dressing they use is to die for. I wish I could buy it by the bottle. Dare I say it's better than La Bou! The pizza, pasta, sandwiches, and cake are all delicious too. Fruit basket cake is my favorite of the cakes. I just with they still have Trivia Monday's at the Natomas location. More...
Very good carrot cake and coffee
Our favorite place
Very good lunch!!!!
Great food and live music.
Makes great everything!
Salads are delicious . I had the mighty chicken and my son had the steak salad. Large portions and reasonably priced. Service was fast and the wait staff was gracious and attentive. They kept filling our water glass and checked to see if our meal was okay. We ate were out on the patio under an awning. It was very pleasant. I highly recommend it. More...
We had a wonderful night last night with the live band, Latin Touch. The band was great and the food was amazing! We will definitely be back. I hope they keep the live music going, there was talk of discontinuing it, which is disappointing. More...
A Plus in my book
I love this place. The service is great! The food is so tasty! I highly recommend eating here.
I always love coming here. They're open early and the food is yummy! Love their crab omelet (it's made with REAL crabs! )
Celebrated a friends birthday there tonight. Everything was so good! Had the charcuterie for my entree. Loved it! Great variety and tastes. Staff was friendly and attentive. We will be back! More...
Busy but always good
reasonable prices for good breakfast... lots of choices. good coffee. a neighbor favorite. meets your neighbors and friends there.
Good atmosphere. Staff friendly and always ask how my meal is... I tend to come at busiest time but always find a seat and food comes out quick. I'll definitely come back.
Love this place! I haven't been there in a while and was happy I could still get my Bella Bru special. I really like all the upgrades too! I'll try to get out here more often! More...
This is a regular hangout. We go to Bella Bru for breakfast or brunch and Luna Lounge (attached next door) for dinner. It's a great neighborhood bar with consistently delicious food and friendly bartenders.
Food great ,price are good and its nice clean place to come with family and friends the cooks are bomb at cooking specials Juan so dedicated to making presentable
Good food, nice area. Ride your bike over, relax in the outdoor seating.
Really good food ... nice outdoor seating
I love this place!
Always good food
I had breakfast here with my mom and really enjoyed it. You can sit outside and the dim lights and soft music make it very relaxing. The host who sat us and helped us out later was very sweet! More...
Had a wonderful lunch outside everything was lovely
Service, Food and Drink and of course Music Amazing.
This was fun! And good food. On our list for next trip through.
Great place for a quick bite & meals
Love this place. Good relaxing atmosphere. Great food.
Great for breakfast
Great Family breakfast.
Beautiful wonderful live music. A perfect pizza and salad. Then spoiled with the best tiramisu I've ever had. Also, the perfect lemon drop martini. Great service too.
Lunch for four. Outside patio great. Order mixed up, medium rare steak not available, salad served instead of fries with my club sandwich. Manager fixed problem and comped the steak salad meal substitute. We were treated well by staff. Food was tasty when we got corrected meals. More...
SO GOOD!!!!! I love this place. The white mocha is to die for and all of the food is just awesome. The restaurant is small and cozy and has a very friendly vibe. Everyone that works here is very friendly and welcoming. You can go on the weekends when it's nice and sunny and sit outside and have brunch. More...
Love this place. Food is great, I drink a mocha coffee from there too that is excellent.
Good food, good staff and great pie!
Enjoyable with live music
Very nice place for dinner with family
Nice place to stop after a bike ride as it's near the river. Never had a bad experience here. Food is always great as well as the service.
I have yet to have a meal here that wasn't excellent. In fact, the ribeye steak that I got here may be the best that I've ever had. Seriously, it's that good.
Great place to meet friends and family for any meal. Great choices to satisfy taste buds or diet! Love their bacon. And grabbing a loaf of french bread for evening meal is a must!!
Great food. All very fresh and flavorful. Lots of options to meet everyone's tastebuds and food preferences. Looking forward to my next visit!
Nice food, good staff!
good place and food.
Good food and a fun little bar in the back.
Great place to meet for coffee, lunch or dinner.
Loved my decaf mocha freezo!
Great service and the best dark coffee around.
Nice outdoor patio and great chai latte and salad.
Exceptional service Saturday night.
Excellent spot for alfresco lunch or after work cocktails. Nice atmosphere and the food was quite tasty.
Fast and delicious
Best Coffee in town. I love this place for a light bite or a full meal. Open early in the morning for a great breakfast or evening for a great dinner. I live in the Arden area so Bella Bru is not only convenient but also has great quick service and good food. Love the friendly atmosphere and the outdoor dinning. More...
We always enjoy going there, the people there are so polite and the Cafe is always kept very clean. And of course the food is delicious.
Great time listening to Todd Morgan and the atmosphere in the bar afterwards was fun.
Awesome atmosphere, good food. Most definitely will be coming back.
Very pleasant and clean place. Nice selection of pastries and cakes, good coffee as well. The Cobb salad I ordered was huge and came with bread and butter. Place to go.
Friendly staff, nice entertainment, great food! The meatballs were wonderful.
Yummy and reasonably priced. Perfect neighborhood eatery.
Great food. Nice staff. Coffee perfect
This place is very nice. Love the setting. You have to try the shrimp tacos!!
Good food. Good music And good service at the bar. Thank you Alexa
Nice atmosphere and fair pricing for same food you would expect at IHOP or Denny’s but at better ambience. Live bands/music on Fridays and Saturdays for a small fee if sitting outside with reservations, but always free inside. Love it when Natomas community gather there just to hang out! Happy hour starts at 2 PM! More...
La Mont Porter
Fabulous as usual,food, service,entertainment,and people,can't be beat!!
Glenn & Chayo Miller
Very friendly staff during my 1st visit. take out was easy and food really good.
Great place for brunch. Friendly and quick service. Plenty of seating
Great service, fun music, and awesome food!
Pretty good selection of beers. Really good food, not great prices. 30+ bucks for a burger and 2 beers. The wait staff all seem like they got somewhere else to be... The food comes out pretty quick and it really is good but the staff are only nice when your ready to leave. Looking for a tip in the end. More...
The service and the food are excellent. All the staff from the hostess to the servers are polite, professional and friendly. Their menu is full of so many delicious options it's so hard to pick, but our favorite is their breakfast menu. More...
A well choice for cakes and desserts and such.. a little pricey but it is definitely worth it. Rich environment inside with a comfy outdoor area.
Fabulous service and food. My favorite place!
Queen Vanilla Suprema
Great entertainment! Pretty tasty food. Awesome crowd.
I could drink their hollandaise sauce is so good.
WOW! I was going to try another restaurant Im glad they were closed. I had the chicken fried steak. YUMM!
I adore this place. Their food is delicious, my favourite is the pistachio pesto flank steak salad. Yum! Also, their bartenders know how to make amazing drinks. Ever had a Grateful Dead? Well, you should, it's yummy! The staff is friendly and personable, been coming here regularly for over a year now and have never had bad service. Definitely one of my favorite places in Natomas! More...
I am always Smiling when I leave!Great Food! Great Patrons! Great Drinks!AND THEY HAVE LIVE MUSIC ON FRIDAY&SATURDAY'S!!!
Sara and Joy the best barkeepers in the 916
Decent food, but good prices and fantastic service!
Service is nice, good selection of cakes (one we got was too sweet to our taste), coffee is average, wifi internet is veeeery slow.
Had a delicious Mighty Chicken Salad. Our waitress was very attentive which is sometimes rare here.
Thought this was a cafe but it is a full on restaurant. And a pricey one at that.
Great food and service. I keep coming back for the bread. Much better than anything from the store that's all too sweet.
I love their breakfast.
Food is always good. Service is usually good. They do get busy sometimes but that is because they are good.
Class level 7 out of 10 npt super fancy but excellent
Nice outside sitting and the food was on point.
Love Bella Bru
traveling sales woman travel reviews
The Butternut Squash Soup, today's soup of the day, was the best I've had. Their Ceasar is amazing. Service is equally amazing even for a gluten free eater like me.
Nice atmosphere and food drinks. A few more bar stools would help.lol
Enjoyed dinner here recently with a dear friend. I was surprised that there is table service at dinner. Our waiters was friendly and attentive. I had an entree salad and [excellent] coffee; my friend had the French dip and soup. I have always enjoyed the casual-yet-classy vibe of this neighborhood cafe. This visit was no exception. More...
I have been here a few times. The interior can be a bit loud so now I opt for take-out. I am addicted to their breakfast burrito in which I sub out the meat for veggies! Yummy! Oh man, now I'm craving it!
We've always liked Bella Bru, a bakery cafe by morning, a destination restaurant by night. There's no better AM gathering spot in Carmichael for breakfast coffee and rolls or full breakfast. Dinner has had its ups and downs over the years and it has toiled in the shadow of Matteo's Bistro, in the same Five Points Center. Not anymore. A few months ago, owners Liz and Steve Mishler finally landed the chef they had been pursuing for several years -- Anthony Disanua. Vive la différence! Disanua brings a world-traveler's touch to his menus, with tapas-style small plates and flavorful sauces, variety and creativity. Most recently we sat on the patio fronting Luna Lounge and received excellent service from Ashley -- friendly and chatty but not intrusive. My wife says the salmon salad is the best she's ever eaten -- a medley of tastes and textures -- kalamata olives, baby arugula, feta cheese, pepperoncini, oregano vinaigrette and a perfectly moist salmon fillet on a bed of quinoa. My brussels sprouts were as good as any I've eaten anywhere, tender in the middle with a crisp finish. And it wasn't overpowered by the bacon and feta cheese, as too many often are. My lobster bisque couldn't have been better -- tangy, with a meaty dollop of lobster. The wine list is somewhat limited but respectable. This is NOT last year's Bella Bru. Well worth a try. More...
Bella Blu has been a dependable lunch for a few years. I enjoy the Bella Blu Club, the Cobb Salad and the Roasted Vegetable Quiche. But about a month ago the quiche took an unexpected turn for the worst, was mushy and cold inside, and it appeared to be yesterday's special and then reheated. Rather than saying anything, I considered it a kitchen faux pas. Today I again ordered the quiche and it was prepared to my standards. This restaurant usually gets it right. One bad quiche, one less star. More...
Friendly staff, good food.
Love "Henry's Favorite" omelette.
Surprised with the breakfast variety with a coffee shop vibe
Was easy to get to off the freeway. Order your food at the counter and they bring it out to your table. Service was fast and friendly. Bacon was great.
Had a delicious French dip.. the food was great and I love the whole Ambience of the place if you haven't been here before it's a must do
Awesome breakfast and pastries.
I love the Cobb salad. The staff is almost always in a cheerful mood.
A favorite stop for breakfast. Great salads and sandwiches too.
Nice atmosphere, good food. Severice is excellent
Good coffee drinks and simple breakfast be and lunch items. Outside tables
Try the Bella Bru Special- if you are in the mood for a sweet coffee treat-
Great place for a good coffee and quality breakfast.
Nice staff they were friendly and helpful. Coffee was good and so was the Berry pastry.
This is a wonderful stop on my way to work. Good food and great service. Employees are always friendly...even under pressure. I owned a restaurant for 21 years and know how tough it is. More...
Great food again today. And the price is very fair.
Good atmosphere, good coffee and nice view. ;)
Andrea Cachua Fruchier
The food is amazing
