Café Bella
  • During the week, this globally inspired contemporary American spot, a lofty storefront space featuring exposed brick, artwork by local artist, hardwood floors and an open kitchen, is a casual cafe with a street side patio during summer. In the evenings, it becomes a full-service restaurant. Owner Hector Pena, who named the restaurant for his daughter, enlisted Ambria alum Cesar Casas as executive chef. His weekday menu features appetizers such as ceviche and spicy grilled chicken quesadillas, gourmet sandwiches, Panini's, wraps, pitas (Caribbean chicken is a specialty), soups, salads, while heartier dinner offerings, which change weekly, show Latin, French and Italian fusion.
