La Bellavia - Great breakfast spot in Flagstaff (includes menu)

La Bellavia
18 S. Beaver St., Flagstaff, AZ
(928) 774-8301

La Bellavia is a Flagstaff classic for breakfast. There’s an old fashioned feel inside with simple décor and colorful walls adorned with the works of local artists. The sweet aroma of pancakes, syrup and eggs fill the air.

Oat Cake
La Bellavia is known for their Swedish Oat Cakes. These huge buttermilk and oat cakes are served with a hot cinnamon apple topping. They taste like a treat, but they’re pretty good for you. (A perfect combination.)
You can also order a side-sized oat cake, which is the size of a normal pancake other places. It’s the perfect size for kids.

This breakfast joint also does the classics well. The omelette is filled with your choice of cheese plus two additional fillings. It comes topped with hollandaise sauce and is served with an English muffin and a side-sized buttermilk pancake or country potatoes. (These are the side options for almost all the breakfast entrees here). The omelet was cooked perfectly… not overly dry, full of flavor and juicy without being too salty. The sausage chunks were huge instead of being crumbled, which was a little weird but tasted yummy. We opted for the buttermilk pancake as one of our sides and it was excellent: sweet and fluffy. The English muffin was also fresh and tasty.

Other popular choices… The Trout and Eggs combo as well as the two eggs combo. The Idaho trout is pan-fried and comes with the standard side choices. The two eggs any way you like comes with potatoes and apancake or english muffin for about $5. La Bellavia also serves their own handmade pastries.

The kids menu has several great options. Among them: a Koala Bear Pancake ($3.25), three Silver Dollar Pancakes ($2.75) and French Toast Fingers ($3.75).

The best deal on the menu… the weekday early bird special. From 6:30-8am Monday through Friday you get two eggs, an English muffin, buttermilk pancake or country potatoes, all for just $3.95.

Breakfast is the big draw at La Bell and they know it. It’s served all day every day they're open. But they also do offer a lunch menu with sandwiches, wraps and quiches.
