Caffe Far Bella is a gem for lunch in St. Clair Shores. Ingredients are fresh and sandwiches are inventive. This week, I had the turkey and Swiss on multi-grain bread; the turkey is fresh sliced and the portion is what I would expect at a first-rate cafe. I have had quiche on previous visits, which was also very good. Service... More

The owners of this restaurant are very friendly and have the right idea how to run a cafe. The menu is extensive from homemade soups and sandwiches to upscale selections. Way more then just a coffee shop! This is a gem in our city.

Quiet, friendly, like cheers - they know your name. You hope they do not get bigger and lose their charm.

We were attending an outdoor festival and market when lunch time beckoned. My wife went to a very nice looking restaurant (which happened to be across the street from Cafe FarBella) and texted me after one hour to say she'd just been waited on. Add another 45 minutes before she returned to our vendor booth. I decided to try Cafe... More

I've had the pleasure of having lunch at this establishmnet several times over the past year. The food is always simple and fresh and very tastey. Their roasted corn chowder soup is out of this world. Love this place and make a special stop everytime I'm in St Clair shores for business.

Café FarBella has great food, friendly service and a welcoming atmosphere. It is evident after dinning at Cafe FarBella that the owners care very highly about quality and freshness when it comes to the food they serve to their guests. Jack and Karen seem to know everyone that walks through the door including me after the first time I visited.... More

Wonderful variety of coffee drinks and teas, and a great selection of soups, salads, sandwiches, and other homespun dishes. The owners make you feel like you're a guest in their own dining room. Come in and feel the love and have a taste of home. Simply da best!

The coffee is only a small part of the great cafe. The baked goods are fresh and delicious. The soup is awesome, I highly recommend the mushroom brie soup, and the lobster bisque. The service is always friendly and welcoming.

Have been faithful visitors since Jack & Karen opened the place. Yes, after your first visit you'll be on a first name basis with the owners. Soups are out of this world. Coffee bar is stocked with every kind of syrup imaginable - including the sugar free versions. Love going in and being able to say, "Jack - surprise me.... More
