Yelp users are excited about Philly Bagels, which currently holds 4.5 stars out of three reviews on the site.

Yelper Sari Marissa G. wrote, "Their bagels are fantastic and fresh! Perfectly crisp on the outside, a tad chewy on the inside with the right amount of toppings and mix-ins. They have all the varieties you love and even some unique flavors such as French toast, pizza, and even tie dye!"

Dominic M. noted, "I've come here twice, and have had a good experience both times. I have tried a breakfast sandwich and also a whitefish salad sandwich. This is the first time I've tried bagels in Philly since moving from Brooklyn, and they were really tasty. The staff seems pleasant, and the woman who works the cash register is very friendly!"

Philly Bagels is open from 6:30 a.m.-3 p.m. on weekdays and 7 a.m.-2 p.m. on weekends.

Lindsay B. added, "Great food and friendly service. My friend and I each had the French toast, which was some of the best I've ever had. The home fries were perfectly cooked. The orange juice is freshly squeezed, which always gets bonus points from me. I might try their breakfast sandwich next time, because it looks huge. Welcome to the neighborhood!"

Acadia is a Cajun/Creole restaurant that's bringing a pinch of New Orleans to Bella Vista. Its seafood-heavy brunch menu includes shrimp and grits and a shrimp omelet, featuring shrimp, fresh tomatoes, green onions, bacon, tasso, cheese and Cajun spices.

Yelper Nunya B., who was the first to review Acadia on February 14, wrote, "We've been to Louisiana multiple times and love the cuisine in that region. They do a good job here. The wings stood out as excellent -- they cook them with a Southern fried chicken batter, so they're fried chickens. The bar stocks Abita and makes Hurricanes, which is a great touch as well."

Yelper Abby B. wrote, "Came here for dinner on a Saturday and were seated right away. Service was super friendly and attentive. You get a free cornbread muffin, which was good --moist and not super crumbly."

Acadia is open from 4 p.m.-11 p.m. from Tuesday-Thursday, 4 p.m.-midnight on Friday, 8 a.m.-3 p.m. and 4 p.m.-midnight on Saturday, and 8 a.m.-3 p.m. and 4 p.m.-11 p.m. on Sunday. (It's closed on Monday.)
