Fodor's Expert Review Bella's Café
Serving a mix of Mediterranean and Pacific Rim dishes, with a touch of Thai flavor, Bella's has been a city favorite for more than a decade. Smart and cheerful, it's right on the Square. Start the day right by ordering breakfast here (anyone for toasted brioche with Bella's own preserves?) or end in it style by choosing from the tempting dinner menu. Try a cashew-and-coconut prawn appetizer, followed by a classic char-grilled beef fillet with truffle-mushroom bread-and-butter pudding or perhaps panfried venison with a caramelized onion and blue cheese tart. The dark chocolate mousse with Chantilly cream is a perfect finishing touch.
