Definitely a 5-star experience! Server was friendly and helpful to our questions. The food was absolutely delicious; the crab cake had little filler, so it was moist and "crab-tasty", as it should be! The side of crispy brussels sprouts were awesome; I'll never want fries again!! I am already telling others about Bell Cafe, and I will be returning myself to try their other delectable-sounding menu choices.

We came to Bell Cafe for a girls' brunch and had a great experience. Our server was very nice and helpful. The food was great and the wait time to get our food was short. I got the salmon eggs Benedict and the portion was huge, especially for the price.

I got the veggie omelet with crispy brussel sprouts as my side. It was the best omelet I have ever had! The brussel sprouts were also excellent. I had never been disappointed any time I've gone there. Love supporting local businesses, especially restaurants, during this trying time. Thanks!

Food was excellent! When I arrived for lunch they had no record of the online reservation I had made. Fortunately, they were not too crowded and they were able to seat my party of five.

I ordered the Cobb Salad. The chicken was hard...was opposed to be crispy. Some pieces I couldn’t even cut with a knife. Way more greens than necessary and fewer of the other salad items. Not much you can do for folks sitting outside who have to listen to loud trucks and cars going by, but inside is probably fine. Overall, not a great experience.
