The newly opened Bella Vita Coffeehouse, located in Idaho Falls’ Snake River Landing, is a refreshing retreat with a charming address. The cozy atmosphere is complete with a beautiful fireplace and local artwork.

Their menu offers tried-and-true favorites like drip coffee and flavored lattés, but includes exclusive offerings such as the Italian Mocha, an indulgent creation with dark chocolate, hazelnut syrup, cinnamon and nutmeg. In addition to coffee drinks, the Bella Vita makes deftly crafted Italian Sodas (try them with cream or without – both are delicious) and hot chocolates, including an 8 oz “kid’s hot chocolate” which is just the right temperature and served with whipped cream and colored sprinkles. Lunch specials are offered daily, and any time of day patrons can choose from a variety of soups, sandwiches, and tasty desserts.

The Bella Vita is ideal for meeting friends for lunch, or bringing your laptop to catch up on work (courtesy of the coffeehouse’s free WiFi). Grab a drink to go and take a short walk over to the Pier to enjoy the view of the river. Or simply snuggle up with a cappuccino in front of the fire with your favorite novel. The quiet, friendly atmosphere and excellent coffee makes the Bella Vita a great addition to the coffee culture of Idaho Falls.

Open Monday through Saturday, 7 am to 6 pm; Sunday 8 am to 4 pm.

Easy to find (take 17th Street/Pancheri west across the river and turn south on Milligan Road. Turn right when you arrive at the Pier onto Pier View Drive and Bella Vita is on the corner to your left), and parking is plentiful.  Their phone number is (208)656-5300.
