I strongly recommend Bella’s Short Stacks for breakfast, but certainly plan to go back for lunch as well. The lunch menu is more basic with soup, sandwiches and salads, and a few specialties of the house, such as the Italian Steak Sandwich (on my must-try list for next time).
I comfortably can assume the same consistent quality and service as the breakfast offerings.
My three takeaways from this visit: Bella’s does breakfast well, the service is excellent and the food is an excellent value (our meal for five people was $51 and, in addition to our hunger, we ordered a lot of food for review purposes).
Bella’s Short Stacks is open daily from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. for breakfast and lunch. The breakfast menu is large, with ample selections of all of your breakfast favorites, including frittatas and stuffed crepes.
