European Roots with a Contemporary Flair
Service was slow the morning that I went, but the food more than made up for the wait! The shrimp and grits were outstanding.
Best brunch in town
I had brunch here and it's not bad kinda loud tho but if you're going with a group or some family members it's a nice place
Catfish, roasted potatoes, and eggs topped with avocados. I will be visiting this place every time I visit CT! Claudia was awesome!!
Love the food but get there early to avoid the wait.
The best brunch in new haven, and reasonable. Rotating menu, almost never disappointed. Be prepared to wait 30-60 min, and they don't take reservations.
Very friendly waitress and great shrimp n grits, but budget 3 hrs for brunch as they do not take reservations and food is served roughly an hr after ordering.
The Jamaican French toast is amazing, period.
Favorite restaurant in new haven!
Claudia is a wonderful server! The grits are delicious; very pudding-like.
Watch out for false advertising! They offered me a $5 coupon for "liking" them on Facebook, and after I did, would not give me $5 off.
The tropical pancakes are enough for two people!
Everyday there is a new menu but you'll always find a new French toast creation everyday... Order that and you'll never go wrong!
Try the French Toast Special - French toast stuffed with brie, topped with raspberry, blueberry, blackberry!
Always a long wait but there's a reason everyone has birthday brunch here. Not limited to eggs benedict but their hollandaise is addictive, bellinis in various flavors, One of New Haven's best spots
Try the Crispy Chicken Breakfast Burrito - The aftermath. It was amazing
Get the Bella's Benedict with a side of grits. NOW.
They have the best home fries EVER!!!
French toast is amazeballs! But avoid the chilaquiles unless you like runny egg whites and overlooked steak :P
The salmon risotto special is so delicious! Also, bellinis and mimosas are great!
The chiles rellenos (savory) and the dark chocolate-, brie- & raspberry-stuffed French toast (sweet) are among the best items here. If you are lucky, they will both be on the menu. Order them.
The Mexican variations on brunch are to die for!
Try the Challah French Toast. One particularly good version is stuffed w/ Peanut Butter, roasted peanuts & caramelized bananas in Rum Maple syrup. Brunch menu changes each weekend, check the website.
Simply the warmest service and most delicious breakfast around, with an atmosphere that restores my spirit every time. I live 25 miles away, and make a special detour to Bella's any morning I'm near
You just don't find breakfast like this anywhere else. Truly awesome!
Best breakfast around- had the stuffed French toast last week with Brie cheese & strawberries- delicious!!
Great breakfast location
