Noticed the Bella Vida Garden Cafe advertised in a Cape May brochure. We tried it for lunch. They were still serving breakfast when we arrived, so my wife tried their Chipped Beef on toast {SOS was great}. I tried the Costa Rican Shrimp and grits, which was out of the world.

We enjoyed the variety in the menu.The decor had a family flair. I was a little disappointed in our table because we had to squeeze into this tiny area close to the counter. Hopefully next time we will get a booth. I had sweet potato flapjacks with eggs and home fries and my husband had the The BIG Kahuna 2... More

The food in this restaurant is excellent. My family and I have eaten here several times before and everything is consistently done well and done right. The menu has a wide variety of selections from seafood to pasta, steak and more. Many of the entrees have a Costa Rican influence and are flavorful as well as healthy. The staff is... More

We visited with our Goddaughter and her boyfriend. We wanted a light lunch since we were having dinner in only 3.5 hours. I started with the Juice of the Day which was Carrot, Mango, and Cranberry. It was fantastic. Two of us had the ABLT, avocado, bacon, lettuce and tomato. Mine was on gluten free toast and the other was... More

We stopped here for a late lunch on a Thursday. Charming place , bigger than it seems from outside. Nice menu options for vegetarians and vegans in addition to meat and fish choices. I had the AFBLT--avocado, fake bacon, lettuce and tomato on multigrain toast. Ordered sweet potato fries asa side--the best I've had anyway, crispy not limp.

Our party of four arrived without a reservation on a late October Saturday night. A friendly hostess greated us warmly and seated us right away. The dining room has a warm, understated ambiance and our server was friendly and knowledgeable. The menu is full of many healthy and vegetarian options. We ordered two different fish dishes, pasta, and salad and... More

We were looking for a quick breakfast on our way to catch the CapeMay/Lewes ferry when we caught sight of this little place. So glad we stopped! The coffee aroma greeted us thru the open windows on this warm fall day. The decor is typically beach-themed, with sparkly mermaids and fish on the walls, beach photographs, a random pelican statue,... More

Very quaint place to eat with fast friendly service. Limited parking. We would go back. Be sure to look at the décor...there is some history of cape may mixed in.

We've eaten lunch here many times (whenever we visit Cape May). The selection is huge, there are numerous vegetarian dishes, and the price is reasonable.

Thank Joan N
