A friendly welcome and a delicious breakfast
After a lovely morning walk at Raby Bay, do pop in for breakfast at La Bella Italian Cafe in Cleveland.
Joseph Alhalaby always has a big smile
Proprietor and chef Joseph always welcomes customers with a friendly smile. He also makes a great breakfast. As always, Aunty Joy and Uncle Chris launched into the food before remembering to take pictures for you. Honestly, we are like the little dog who his owner left outside while she went in for her regular takaway coffee - his expression was like 'Hey, gettin' food for me while you're in there?' See food, eat it. So you have to make do with a picture of me with my coffee (which, by the way, is very good quality).
They have a good selection of breakfast offerings and the ones we've tried on the three times we've visited have been fresh and delicious.
La Bella is open for breakfast from 7am daily and lunch from noon daily. They are also open for dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. We haven't eaten lunch or dinner there, but the offerings look tempting and reasonably priced and we will definitely try it soon. For those on a budget Joseph has breakfast and lunch specials for a very good price.
La Bella Italian Cafe is at Shop 15, 99 Bloomfield Street, Cleveland, tucked into a pleasant little square. Phone 07 3488 0001. www.labellacafe.com.au
