If you can make your way thru the fabulous bakery in the front of the building, you will be rewarded with a spectacular view of the Saint Lawrence River. The menu is extensive and there are always specials to tempt you. Each table provides you with lap robes for the rare cool days. If you're lucky, you might be fortunate... More

We're drawn there every time we're in Clayton. There's always some good soup, which is our baseline. We've never done dinner there, but I'm sure they're great. It's really busy in the warm seasons, so you're apt to have to wait if you're right at lunch time. The staff have been great and, in short, we've always had a good... More

If you visit Clayton NY in the Thousand Islands region( and you should) you have to visit Bella's. Breakfast lunch or dinner. Not your same old menu. Great food, friendly service and a great view of the St. Lawrence Segway! You won't be disappointed and the shops nearby allow you to walk off your meal!

Enjoyed two breakfasts and a lunch here. All were very good. The service was great as the staff goes out of their way to satisfy you. A delicious looking bakery greets you as you enter. Another in town restaurant that has river view deck seating if desired.

It was a great spot to have lunch the day after Labor Day. The village was still going for many who did not have to return to work or school. We had a great meal and enjoyed watching many boats in the river. Great beer selection along with delicious food. Will return next summer!

I had a sandwich and salad and it was way more than I could eat. Tasty and beautiful view, but bring a sweater if you want to sit outside, even in mid summer the wind off the water is cold.

You can sit outside and overlook the St. Lawrence River while eating a wonderful breakfast, lunch, or dinner with many out of the ordinary flavors! We go to this restaurant for breakfast or lunch every time we visit the area! You can also get fresh made bread and bakery "to go" which is also incomparable. They are pet friendly if... More

We came in by boat early one morning and walked down to Bellas. NOT disappointed. Great coffee, beautiful view of the river, and awesome food.

My husband and I recently ate here on a Sunday late morning. Food was amazing, highly recommend the cornbeef hash! Staff was courteous and prompt. Even grabbed pastries on the way out for a later boat trip!
