Our Story

Some beginnings are created out of necessity, others out of curiosity, but some are born out of love. In February of 2008, Hector Peña, opened Café Bella as he wanted to create a place that served healthy food that his daughter, Isabella, could enjoy. And he named the place after her. After Hector’s unfortunate passing and Cafe Bella’s existence for almost a decade, it was clear that the legacy was to continue. Café Bella was meant to evolve into something different and something new.
After many special breakfast moments between Bella and her mom, coupled with their love for their Caribbean culture, the concept of Caribella was born. It was important that Caribella was built in the image of Café Bella and that the heart of the parent restaurant is never lost. Café Bella’s uniqueness and good food are not gone but have been used as the inspiration to create something even better. Caribella aims to deliver a delicious and unique brunch menu with a Caribbean twist.
We hope that you feel welcome at Caribella, and with each bite, you can sense the love that has gone into all we have created while tasting all of the satisfying flavors the Caribbean has to offer!

Customer Feedback

“My favorite go-to breakfast/lunch in Logan square! The coconut pancakes are to die for, and when I’m feeling healthy, they have delicious and filling salad and sandwich options. Yummy coffee drinks and killer homemade desserts like chocoflan and tres leches cake too! Friendly service and a homey, family-run vibe. A much-needed escape from the cold, overpriced, hipster restaurants in the area.”
