Our Story

Bella’s Bakery & Cafe is one of Colorado Springs’ best kept secrets. Nestled in the heart of Downtown, Bella’s dishes out breakfast and lunch all day. We use nothing but the freshest, locally sourced ingredients. Accompanying our dining menu is a wide array of scrumptious pastries and breads, which we bake from scratch, daily. To top it all off, we’ve got a full espresso bar, featuring Cuban and White espresso, and over twenty specialty drinks to choose from. Our signature White Zombie drinks will give you an extra kick in the morning with over 3 times the caffeine of regular espresso.

Whether it be your morning coffee and scone, lunch with a friend, or a catering for a party, try Bella’s. From appetizers to cake and everything in between, we’ve got you covered. Read more about our Cuban Specialties below!

A Little Slice of Cuba

In Colorado Springs

Owner, Andy Schlessinger, a Miami native with rich Cuban roots, takes his passion for his heritage and his passion for food and marries the two beautifully. A staple at Bella’s is the variety of sweet as well as savory Pastellitos, which feature homemade Picadillo, Guava, Cheese or Coconut, delicately wrapped in flaky puff pastry. If you’re after something more hearty, our Cuban Sandwich will hit the spot — piled high with house-made slow roasted mojo pork, premium ham and Swiss, pickle and mustard, on a Cuban roll, and toasted to perfection. It’s arguably the best Cuban Sandwich in Colorado Springs. Keep an eye out for daily specials such as Ropa Vieja, Picadillo, Croquettas, Empanadas and many more Cuban dishes that are sure to satisfy.
