Local Calistoga residents Paul and Jen Crudo opened the bakery and café in 2013. Bella Bakery & Café are proud to be their hometown bakery and they want to serve their community with a smile, great cup of coffee, and a treat made from scratch. The bakery makes its own quiches, pastries, sandwiches, and variety of cakes, including wedding cakes.

​​​​​​​What we love about Bella Bakery & Café are the delicious sandwiches, whole quiche pies to order and take home, and their unbelievable chocolate and salted caramel tarts.

You can find them open during many of the Calistoga daytime and nighttime parades.
