Bella’s Café serves breakfast, lunch, and brunch fare that Fearless Critic New Haven restaurant guide proclaims has “long been considered the best.” Chefs kick off weekday mornings with a breakfast menu burgeoning with unique egg dishes and challah french toast. Connecticut Magazine suggests that visitors “keep an eye out for the Tuscan omelet,” a bouquet of yellow squash snuggled with grilled eggplant and portobello mushrooms ($12.95). Bella’s Café’s brunch changes weekly to incorporate the freshest seasonal ingredients available and horoscopes prescribing omelet intake. The lavish spread may include dishes such as sweet potato crepes, baked sweet potatoes with vanilla and pecans beneath a rum toffee sauce and pumpkin seed brittle ($11.95), or the chile rellenos, poblano peppers stuffed with rice, shrimp, and chorizo and topped with scrambled eggs, mexican cheese, and pico de gallo ($13.95). Midday diners settle among the canary-yellow walls of the cozy dining room as colorful paintings gaze at lunch fare that includes the lettuce, tomato, sprouts, avocado, and hummus of the black bean burger ($10.95), which hides behind a whole grain wrap like a baker avoiding homework.

Bella’s Café

As the heir apparent to three generations of cooks, Rose Foote’s decision to follow in their footsteps was no surprise. Her journey started when she worked at her parent’s restaurant at the age of 9, and it continued in 1995 with her catering service, and, eventually, a culinary tour throughout Tuscany. All of these influences can be found in her inventive breakfast, lunch, and brunch menus at Bella’s Café—Rose describes the resulting theme as “European roots with contemporary flair.” An illustrative example is the eggplant ciabatta, a unity of grilled eggplant, fire-roasted red peppers, gooey melted mozzarella, and spicy arrabbiatta sauce.

The food isn’t the only aspect of Bella’s Café that blends a classic European aesthetic with contemporary influences—the décor adheres to that theme. Burnt yellow hues give the walls a rustic look, and framed prints and paintings remind guests that they don’t have to sculpt their French toast into a bust of Napoleon playing with his food to see beautiful art.
