Quality meals, casual style

Award-winning Bella Bru invites you to experience four deliciously different cafes. Each location offers a unique menu, patio dining and a warm, inviting atmosphere. Open early, open late, open every day except Christmas, serving quality meals in a fast and friendly manner. Locally owned and conceived by Liz Mishler, her vision of replicating a European style atmosphere has grown with each new location.

Bella Bru is now in Carmichael, Natomas and El Dorado Hills. The Carmichael site is also home to the Luna Lounge. Although the menus can vary by location, they all offer coffee drinks, omelets, paninis and salads during the day. The dinner menus are more eclectic, featuring specialty pizzas, pastas and unique takes on familiar dishes such as meatloaf, steaks and quesadillas.

Dog-friendly outdoor dining

Each café opens early and features a fun, casual atmosphere that includes some of the best outdoor dining in Sacramento. And each patio is dog-friendly so your four-legged pal can join you for coffee or a meal.

Bella Bru also regularly host events at each location, such as wine tastings, trivia nights and mini-concerts. Be sure to check the Events section for a calendar for upcoming events at all the cafes.

Neighborhood bakery

From bagels, muffins and bread to cheesecakes, pies and tiramisu, the Bella Bru cafés also double as specialty bakeries. Each location offers a wide assortment of delicious creations, all made from scratch by Bella Bru's bakers. Choose a treat from a display case or place a special order for a custom cake, pie or cookie tray. Try one of Bella Bru's most popular items, such as carrot cake, chocolate decadence or raspberry chiffon cake.

Bella Bru is particularly proud of its artisan breads that are baked daily. Each loaf is a work of art, handcrafted by bakers who have studied the history of bread and mastered the techniques for making it. The fresh breads, rolls and pizza shells are used in the cafes' sandwiches and burgers and are also available for purchase.

Next time you're in the mood for something sweet, or just need a special loaf of bread to round out a meal, stop by your nearest Bella Bru neighborhood bakery.
