This is a friendly little cafe with simple vegetarian dishes. Nothing on the menu really stood out to me, but I settled on a special of the day----whole wheat pasta with seitan in a fennel tomato sauce ($8 for the lunch portion).

The dish was really basic and, while it was tasty, this is definitely a dish I could have made at home (and I'm a novice cook, at best).

For dessert I had a gluten-free chocolate chip cookie ($2) and a slice of maple cake ($5). The cookie was pretty good (it was made of almond flour), but the cake was excellent: moist; subtly sweet; airy.

Bela's is cash-only, which is always annoying. Also, dinner prices are 50% higher than at lunch. While the food at Bela's isn't spectacular or unusual, it's tasty enough and not too expensive. I like the vibe and the friendly service. All in a all, it's a nice place to get lunch with a friend but don't expect to find a gourmet meal here.

By far my favorite restaurant in NoHo. Food is very good, home style with generous portions. Always plenty of vegan options. Menu is clearly marked as to content. Staff is consistently pleasant and friendly. They don't seem to have much staff turn over--always an indicator of a good restaurant.

I've never had room for dessert. Maybe some day I'll get to try something from the dessert menu.

Bela doesn't have a lot of seating and it can be a busy place during prime dinner time. Also, they don't take credit cards.
