Bluebell is a welcome addition to the neighborhood. Decor/interior is homey cafe with some fun/quirky touches (e.g. "Chefs are Hot" sign above the kitchen). Food is very good; however, my advice is to stick to homestyle classics. Their mac and cheese is awesome - piping hot, loads of fresh herbs, delicious. Potato leek soup is chunky, unexpected and comes very hot (generous portion, too). Pulled pork is another success. Green salad with pickled onions and other market veg is also quite refined and tasty. Definitely try this place, we've got to make sure it has staying power!

Only complaint is that this place has ruined french toast for me anywhere else. Pulled Pork is also great! Great brunch spot.

Stopped in for brunch hoping for some good home-cooked style food. Instead we found dirty coffee cups and salt and pepper shakers with dried ketchup on them…and that was before we got to the food. The biscuits are definitely not homemade and the rest of the food just tasted like processed junk. I'd expect a bit more when I'm paying $13 for eggs, homefries and bacon. Save your money and go to a diner.

haven't had anything I didn't like, including brunch. I live in the neighborhood and while we have good restaurants, this is the first place I'd really call a "neighborhood" spot. Good service, good wine by the glass, the chicken thigh app is TDF. Also love the ahi tuna sandwich with great frenchy french fries.

Though I haven't eaten at Bluebell Cafe, I've just completed my second take out meal from here. Last time around I had their scrumptious Brioche French Toast, this evening I dined on Muscles, Fries, and a very serviceable red velvet cake. The muscles were very good, and the broth was drink from the bowl delicious. My only complaint is that I knew if I were eating in the restaurant I would have been given more muscles in my bowl. So far I'm happy to see Bluebell serves up some very nice, classic food which my stomach happily receives.

This restaurant recently appeared on 3rd avenue and we decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised. Unlike most trendy brunch places in this area Bluebell actually had tables available and the atmosphere was very cute. The food was very tasty. At our table we had the pulled pork sandwich, the sliders and the bluebell breakfast. All of our meals were delicious. We will definitely be going back often.
