I had a sandwich and salad and it was way more than I could eat. Tasty and beautiful view, but bring a sweater if you want to sit outside, even in mid summer the wind off the water is cold.

My husband and I recently ate here on a Sunday late morning. Food was amazing, highly recommend the cornbeef hash! Staff was courteous and prompt. Even grabbed pastries on the way out for a later boat trip!

My boyfriend and I visited Bella's twice on our trip to Clayton. It has a great view of the water, bottomless coffee and unique breakfast items. Our favorite was the French toast!

My wife and I were out enjoying a Fall drive and visited Clayton NY. It was right at lunch time so we decided to try Bella's after reading about it on TripAdvisor. What a great place. We sat on the outside deck which afforded a fantastic view of the St. Lawrence River. The weather was perfect and several boats were... More
