For what Bella is—a little neighborhood spot with simple sandwiches and a couple of slightly more ambitious options—it succeeds. The incredibly affordable menu is as eclectic as the art collection, ranging from hummus (fine) to fruit-spiked guac (tasty) to hand-formed burgers (surprisingly well-seasoned and well-executed at a juicy medium-rare). One hope is that the owner ditches the weekday counter-service/weekend table-service switcheroo; it’s not only confusing for diners, it sucks for servers’ wallets.

The food is always fresh and delicious! Everything I order has an explosion of flavor in my mouth. Great place for a meal or a coffee.
One of the 1st cafés to open up in Logan Sqaure 7 years ago and yet its still a super hidden gem. Fresh fruits and veggies in every entree and sandwich! Homemade menu from croutons to sauces. Great coffee locally roasted. Byob and affordable menu. Name after owners daughter "Bella" which was born sick and fighting for life. Now healthy and a honor student at Whitney young hs. Owner, Hector. Fighting cancer for over two years and recently surviving a stem cell transplant and recovering . Although Owner is recovering he still uses his restaurant resourses to raise funds for childhood cancer, donates lunch to hospital nurses caring for cancer patients, helps promote to be a bone marrow donor and more. Great healthy food and an establishment that helps for good causes. Cafe bella is also No Fried foods zone and inspired by one of former Ambria's chef Cesar casas.
