Caffe Bella, Locanda del Lago's annex location on 3rd Street Promenade, is a panini and gelato coffee house. All dishes are made at Locanda del Lago and transported a block away by foot to Caffe Bella! The caffe also features 24 house made gelato and sorbetto flavors made with many organic fruits from the local Santa Monica's Farmers' Market.
Breads are baked daily and used in conjunction with local ingredients and sustainable proteins to create fresh, delicious quick service meals! Caffe Bella’s menu indicates which local farm each protein comes from as well as the items that are seasonally driven.
Caffe Bella’s janitorial products, in line with the main Locanda del Lago location, include a Green Seal certified peroxide based multi-purpose cleaner. As required by Green Business Certification standards, they eliminated all non-recyclable aerosol container cleaners and replaced with refillable and recyclable trigger spray bottles. All Caffe Bella’s to-go ware are recyclable or compostable – with the majority being BOTTLEBOX® containers manufactured nearby in Perris, CA from recycled PET #1 plastic bottles recovered from blue bins. Caffe Bella also offers discounts to locals, to customers who bring their own coffee mug, and they collect java jackets for reuse.
