In addition to Bella's, another Westville favorite of mine is Lena's Cafe. I would highly recommend going on the weekend. Their brunch specials are ever changing, and can be found on their website the week before so you can eagerly wait for your weekend meal. Go with plenty of time though, because this is a popular place and there's almost always a wait for brunch, and for good reason! My last trip to Lena's was with a couple of friends. We were given coffee during our wait, and a comfortable couch to sit on. Once seated, we ordered a pitcher of mimosas which the waitress was nice enough to keep in the fridge so it would stay cool between glasses. For my meal I ordered one of the specials with was a crepe of pulled steak, gruyere and spinach topped with two over easy eggs with hollandaise sauce. Pleasant atmosphere, and terrific food!
