My wife and I have been to Bette's countless times and it never disappoints. My favorite is the lox and eggs done with a little cream and chives. Served with home made potatoes and bagel or toast. My wife loves the scrambled eggs with salsa....More

I once ate rattle snake because I got lost in the Sierras. Tasted like chicken, pretty good. Bette's is sort of like that. Whatever they cook up, tastes exceptional. But I hate waiting so I always make it around 7am when you can get your...More

Great spot for quick scone, lemon bars and out the door. Little wait compared to diner next door. All baked goods are always great. Miss the slice of pizza.

This spot is popular. Sometimes it's hard to get a table. While not cheap eats, breakfasts are good here.

The food and service was great. The restaurant was super crowded and there was a long wait, but the staff was friendly, upbeat and efficient. Can’t say enough good things about the food. The soufflé pancakes are out of this world.

Bette's has great food, however, it can be very crowded and they don't take reservations. Be prepared to wait.

Quaint, busy diner that executed well. It was as good as everyone as said. Great chicken poblano sandwich, although I had a bit of “order envy” when I saw the soufflé pancake delivered to the table next to me. The woman said it was excellent...More
