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.
