Excellent! Love their bread and loyalty program. We are in at least twice a week for their pugliese bread. Makes great toast.

We had lunch yesterday at the Luna Lounge in Bella Bru Cafe in Carmichael. It has a very intimate setting. Large booths and some tables around the bar. It also has a very nice outside drinking and dinning area. I had the Rueben sandwich, which was excellent. My friend had a small pizza that was huge. We both enjoyed the... More

This restaurant does nice traditional breakfast items. The food is good--the coffee drinks are very nice. What made the difference this visit was an exceptional server who came to our table several times to be sure we had everything we needed This is not what I would call a full service restaurant. You must go to the counter to order... More

Did not live up to reviews today. Albeit we arrived at the end of breakfast service, we shocked to be served a cold omelette with even colder potatoes. Then, we only got one of the three beverages we ordered delivered correctly to our table. The coffee-au-lait was absolutely perfect -far superior to Starbucks - with real powdered chocolate.

I have been enjoying Bella Bru Cafe for 17 years at the 5 points shopping area. It is a 1.3 mile walk from my home, and I've been there for breakfast, lunch and dinner -- and enjoy the cocktail lounge - the Luna Lounge. Great place. Love it.

Hard to get a parking spot since its next to a 24 hour fitness. Seating is uncomfortable. Food is uninspired. It's busy because it is close to the bike trail and it is more like a club house for the bikers. Very smelly.

I've been going here for Coffee and dining for 20 years. While the staff has obviously changed, they hire friendly young people who always care about doing it right even when learning the ropes.
